Alfred Dunhill’s Wheel Watch is destined for discerning motorsports enthusiasts. (Click image to enlarge)
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.
