Automobile racing and watches may not seem to have much to do with one another on the surface, but when you think about it, both a race car and a wristwatch are amazing feats of engineering. For the designers at Moto Koure, the classic muscle car has served as a source of inspiration, driving them to create a line of exceptional watches that suit modern men but are made with an old-time commitment to quality.
The first watch designed by Moto Koure is the MK I, which was patterned after the look of 1960s and 1970s race cars. Available with quartz and mechanical movement systems, the watches have a vintage-style dial with sub-dials that are reminiscent of the instrument dials on the dash of a race car. Supple leather bands with cutouts add style to the design of the unique watches, which are available in a variety of colours and finishes.
Moto Koure is currently gearing up to bring their MK I watch collection driving across the finish line into production. The brand is currently accepting pre-orders on the racing-inspired timepieces at their official website. The pre-order price is around $135 for the mecha-quartz version and around $390 for the mechanical version. Quantities are limited as Moto Koure tends to produce their watches only in small runs. In other words, men who want to own a Moto Koure MK I need to rev their engines and make their pre-orders fast!
