The golden age of motor racing is the motto of the new Baltic Tricompax that has just been launched, developed in collaboration with Peter Auto who, since its foundation in 1978, has organized the most spectacular classic car events in France and Europe, bringing together the best racers and best cars.
It is a limited edition and 300 pieces that will be on sale from the 26th of August at 4 pm (CET time) and that once again highlights the close connection that exists between the world of watches and motorsport.
The chronograph that comes with three registers features distinctive 60s/70s colours, with orange accents on the central second’s hand and 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock and yellow on the 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock.
So, the Tricompax Baltic x Peter Auto is based on a stainless steel case base of 39.5mm in diameter by 13.5mm in thickness and a lug-to-lug distance of 47mm, aluminium tachymeter bezel, double domed sapphire crystal, crown with the brand’s signature at three o’clock and two pushers buttons, screw case back engraved with the name of the special edition in the centre and individually numbered, and finally 50 meters of water resistance.
The beige dial, in addition to the three aforementioned black registers, features an outer black ring with a minute/seconds scale, applied rhodium-plated hour markers and sword hands filled with luminescence material.
Inside, Baltic’s latest chronograph is equipped with the Swiss Sellita SW-510M automatic movement that offers up to 63 hours of power reserve.
The watch comes with a steel bracelet inspired by the 70s, with adjustable flat links that allow it to better adjust to the curvature of the wrist and with finishes that alternate between polished and brushed, it also comes with an extra taupe calf leather strap.
Finally, the watch is offered in a special box that in addition to the chronograph also includes two stopwatches on a holder, an extra leather strap, a screwdriver, a pump driver, the international warranty and a booklet presenting the behind-the-scenes video shooting.
The watches can be purchased from the official Baltic website from the date indicated above, for the price of € 1975 (without VAT) and should start shipping at the end of September.
