Baltic pays homage to 1960s motorsport legends with two panda dial timepieces
Inspired by a certain record-breaking timepiece worn by Paul Newman, Baltic have unveiled two stunning Panda and Reverse Panda variants of their Tricompax watch, now available in the CD Shop.
With Christmas rapidly approaching, now’s the perfect time to treat yourself or an horologically-obsessed loved one to a new timepiece, and Baltic have decided to end the year in style by unveiling two jaw-dropping variants of their Tricompax wristwatch. Paying tribute to the greatest legends of the automobile since the 1960s, the Panda and Reverse Panda Tricompax are two incredibly legible and good looking watches.
Powered by a reliable and robust SW510-M mechanical hand-wound chronograph movement developed by Sellita, these stylish timepieces offer a power reserve of 60 hours. Baltic have ensured utmost wearability with their pair of Pandas, using a 47mm stainless steel case that boasts a thin 13.5mm profile, balancing perfect wrist presence with impressive resilience. Further adding to these watches’ everyday wearability is the double dome sapphire crystal glass and the comfortable flat link metal bracelet, which perfectly fits the curve of the wrist thanks to the fine and flexible links.
Which brings us to the main event: the dial. Finished in a matte light beige or semi gloss black finish with contrasting black or light beige guilloche counters, depending on whether you go for the Panda or the Reverse Panda, these watches carry an immediately timeless and versatile aesthetic. And for those late night drives, the polished steel dauphine hour and minute hands and triangular markers on the railroad are coated with Super-LumiNova for perfect readability in the dark. If either of these timepieces have caught your eye, we recommend you act quick, because the first 200 units of each variant will be numbered with an engraved case back.
