Watch of the day

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?

For Monday, starting my work week, with a timepiece that makes me light-up, and puts a smile on my face, every time I wear this watch. That timepiece, is the Szanto, Danny Sullivan Icon Series, Racing Chronograph mod.

When formulating the idea for this modification, my vision was heavily influenced by the Ford GT race car, with the Gulf Racing colors. The colors turned-out even better than I could have imagined. There's something about the mix of baby blue, dark blue, and orange, that just fits. And this incarnation of Gulf-Racing inspired colors, lets this mod stand on its own, without being an homage to any specific branded timepiece. I tested a few different selections of racing straps for this modded timepiece, but finally settled on a 3-hole, non-round, leather racing strap, from Straton Watch Company, which offers the perfect compliment of orange and blue, to that of the watch dial.

Accessorizing this Szanto mod, with a beaded bracelet, custom-crafted by Beads By Gonzo, further capturing the Ford GT / Gulf-Racing look and essence. This pairing is ready to take the checkered flag!
