Omologato and Écurie Ecosse Create Limited Edition Watch

By Paul Joseph

Watch brand Omologato has partnered with probably the most famous name in British racing, Écurie Ecosse, to create a new limited edition timepiece.

The long-established racing team’s livery has appeared on some of the most famous cars in the history of motorsport, and is now on the official Omologato Écurie Ecosse Chronograph.

The limited edition timepiece pays homage to the iconic Écurie Ecosse look, and offers a level of quality and design that sets it apart. It is available in two tasteful colour schemes – the two colours of the Scottish Saltire that is at the heart of the Écurie Ecosse team. The faces are available in sunray metallic blue, or white with blue details. The blue is offered with white numbers, while the white face comes with a blue number 12, and blue edged notches around the face.

On both versions, the watch features subtle styling highlights. A small Écurie Ecosse shield featuring the Scottish Saltire sitting is positioned just above the Omologato logo and the centre of the dial. The two are complemented by the 22mm strap, which is made from a high-grade quality of Italian leather. The blue is offered with a sophisticated black strap, while the white version is given a twist of colour thanks to its tan leather finish.

The Écurie Ecosse Chronograph features a high quality Swiss Quartz movement for the first time in an Omologato, offering further smoothness of operation and a quality of manufacturing. This brings a desirable level of precision, reliability and accuracy that is associated with the very best in watch manufacturing.

Omologato is only offering the Écurie Ecosse Chronograph in strictly limited numbers, with only 200 being made. The 200 owners will receive a hand signed booklet certificate confirming the number bought and get a watch that is truly special, as the case is bespoke for the Écurie Ecosse. The 43mm case is made from a high grade of surgical grade stainless steel and finished with a flat sapphire finish glass. Each watch is packed in a specially made lacquered piano wood box.

Omologato founder Shami Kalra said: “Écurie Ecosse came out of nowhere when it first launched in the 1950s, taking on bigger, more established teams with much larger budgets and upsetting the odds to win some of the most famous races in the world.

“Creating the Écurie Ecosse Chronograph means a lot to me personally. I’ve always been a fan of the team, and love the cars’ understated and classy look – I owned a toy version of the Transporter when I was a child and it is an honour to be working with the team today.”

The Écurie Ecosse Chronograph is strictly limited to 200 examples, and is priced at £599.
