Wheel Time

Alfred Dunhill, purveyor of fine motoring accessories for the gentleman driver since 1893, has now become a house known for its unique ability to combine period elegance with contemporary innovation. The Wheel Watch timepiece collection, with its automatic movement from the prestigious Swiss manufacturer Dubois Dépraz, is certain to impress the most discerning motorcycle enthusiast readying for an expansive road trip.

The limited edition Petrolhead, supplied on a handmade leather strap with contrasting stitching in red or yellow to coordinate with the details of the dial, has a 40-hour power reserve monitored by a fuel gauge design which falls from full to empty when it is time to refill. Weighing 90.6 gr, and measuring 42mm in diameter, the mono-lug case shape recalls the metal spinners often used to secure wheels to period sports cars, as well as Alfred Dunhill’s century-old Motorities heritage. The polished, knurled stainless steel crown is concealed by an engine-turned bezel to protect it from knocks, while the date aperture at six o’clock doubles as a bonnet-mounted racing number for the sportscar design at the bottom of the dial.

Water resistant to 30m, this 21-jewel timepiece is testament to the motoring inspiration of Alfred Dunhill and his invaluable contri-butions. Trimmed in yellow, the Petrolhead is limited to an edition of 1,500; trimmed in red, only 1,000 will  be produced.
