Watch of the day (WOTD)

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?


My Flavor Of The Day

Tsikolia, GT40 Racing Chronograph, Limited Edition

It's a Tsikolia Sunday today, as I'm sporting the Tsikolia, GT40 - Racing Chronograph. The love affair with this timepiece remains as strong as the first time I laid eyes on this beautiful chronograph.


I was introduced to this piece by someone that was a good friend, and business associate of the brand owner and designer. And from the initial prototype photos of this timepiece, I was all-in. The elongated case and covered lugs struck me as a unique design element. But the Gulf Racing color scheme, done to pay tribute to the Ford GT 40 race car, is very well done, and gives this piece a very eye-catching, visual appeal. The Gulf Racing color theme is continued throughout the leather, perforated racing strap, giving this timepiece a racing look, that is undeniable.


As racing chronographs go, this timepiece is about as good as it gets. The dial itself, holds additional design cues, that pay homage to the Ford GT 40 super car; I especially like the chronograph sub-dials, mimicking the instrument gauge cluster of the automobile.


I'm a sucker for Gulf Racing colors, so no doubt, I had to continue that look with my choice of accessory; and the marine-grade, rope bracelet, designed by Ropelet UK, has my Wrist Game looking completely race ready!
