Belmoto is a new, retro-inspired, racing-themed watch brand, imagined by the creator of the small but popular independent watchmaker Magrette. Inspired by the parent company’s tactical and military designs, Belmoto designed a vintage car and racing theme, shown off by two watches: the three-hand automatic Belmoto Tourer and the Belmoto Track-Day quartz chronograph.
With four versions of the Track-Day quartz chronograph and three versions of the three-hand automatic Tourer watches available, potential customers will surely have a lot of options to choose from, each of these watches coming in a cushion-shaped 42 millimeter steel case with a 200-meter water resistance.
There’s also a sandwich-style dial with C3 luminant, under a domed and AR-coated sapphire crystal. The versions features different dial colors, a lot of interesting case finishes and several straps to choose from.
The Belmoto Track-Day chronograph watch uses a Seiko VK64 Chronograph Hybrid Meca-Quartz Movement, featuring a mechanical reset for the chronograph and a “sweeping” 1/5-second chronograph hand. This version also benefits from a solid caseback, with the Belmoto name and logo in a nice relief.
On the other hand, the Belmoto Tourer is powered by the Miyota 9015 automatic movement, visible through the tinted display caseback. You will probably notice a steering wheel-shaped frame between the display caseback and the undecorated movement, which is a nice touch.
No matter which color you go for, all three-hand automatic Belmoto Tourer watches cost US$700, and all versions of the Belmoto Track-Day quartz chronograph will set you back US$500.
