Watch of the day

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?


My Flavor Of The Day

Szanto, Danny Sullivan "Icon Series", Racing Chronograph Mod

Thursday represents the final turn, into the straightaway towards the weekend. And what better way to make a power-move on a straightaway, than with a dashing racing chronograph?


Enter the Szanto, Danny Sullivan "Icon Series", Racing Chronograph Mod. There are two things I love about my choice today. First, the mod was intentionally done in a color choice, to pay tribute to the Gulf-Racing team. The mix of orange, light and dark blues has been the signature color of many iconic watch brands through the years; and admittedly, I'm pretty much much a sucker for the color scheme. Second, being a unique mod, it's a true 1 of 1 timepiece. And in watch collecting circles, it doesn't get any more rare, than a custom, one-of timepiece.


My decision to incorporate the Straton, non-round, 3-hole racing strap, was a good one, as I feel it really completes the look and racing theme of the timepiece. Further playing-up the Gulf-Racing theme, is the addition of a custom-made bracelet, crafted by Beads By Gonzo, which has my Wrist-Game today, poised to take the checkered flag!
