As part of the partnership, Omologato will create a limited edition VIR branded watch available for purchase and pre-order at www.omologatowatches.com/vir. Only 50 VIR Premiére Editions will be produced.
With over 25 years of watch making experience, the Windsor, England based company designed and manufactured for a number of well-known watch brands before launching their very own line.
Omologato started with the ethos of bringing affordable and high quality watches to people who live for motorsport. Each watch is carefully hand assembled, uses accurate and reliable Japanese movements that are guaranteed for five years for faults on mechanisms. Now Omologato is a name that’s widely recognized in both the classic and contemporary areas of the automotive scene, so much so that the brand has attracted something of a cult following.
It offers more than 25 designs inspired by everything from the world’s great circuits to cars and legendary drivers. Having created watches dedicated to tracks such as Indianapolis and Laguna Seca in America, Omologato has also launched models such as the Monza that marks its collaboration. It currently sponsors teams and drivers competing in IndyCar, Formula E, Porsche Motorsport, British GT and East African Safari Rally. Visit www.omologatowatches.com for more information.
