The Ollech & Wajs Rallychron is robust chronograph with motorsport-inspired bezel

The watch enthusiast in us shares a special love for motorsports and Ollech & Wajs is giving us another reason to rejoice with the new Rallychron. The watch designed in a vintage appearance is born from love for racing and pays homage to the iconic race tracks in the world traced around its custom bezel.

The bezel of the 39.5mm stainless steel watch is the biggest highlight. It features the fabulous circuits that have been witness to some of the most memorable races in history. The markings on the bidirectional bezel denote hypothetical “perfect laps” of the 11 such race circuits of the ‘60s from the narrow, twisting streets of Monaco to the fast, flowing tracks of Monza, and the legendary Le Mans.

Designer: Ollech & Wajs

The perfect lap times for each circuit on the bezel are hypothetical times based on a set of criteria and variables formulated in collaboration with Hervé Charbonneaux, a classic car collector, rally driver, and author. The time stamps may not have particular functionality but it definitely gives the Ollech Wajs Rallychron its distinct character that would get racing buffs chatting at the first glance of it.

Within the distinctive black PVD-coated bezel, the Rallychron measuring 15.3mm thick features a tachymeter scale and gray dial with checkered baton hands that complement its motorsport inclination. On the dial, the watch has three typical register chronographs for small seconds, a 30-minute timer and a 12-hour timer with the date window and water resistance marked at the 6 o’clock position.

Themed in gray, black and hints of orange, the Ollech Wajs Rallychron runs an automatic Valjoux 7753 chronograph OW Precision 5 movement that gives the watch 54 hours of power reserve. The 300m water-resistant watch comes paired with the choice of a racing-style black leather strap or a M-Heritage stainless steel mesh bracelet that styles up fantastically with the steel watch casing. Your choice of strap will define the price of the watch is expected to begin retailing from March 30, 2024. With the leather strap, it will cost $2,650, while the steel bracelet will set you back $2,793.
