But the Racing Chronograph isn’t simply a combination of two watches; it also incorporates new elements. One of these is the metal bezel, which replaces the black bezel on the original to create a more cohesive look that matches the metal bracelet. The bracelet, with its short and rounded links, is crucial in giving the watch a casual and vintage feel.
Another highlight of the Racing Chronograph is its wide variety of dial options, which have been thoughtfully tweaked from the original designs. There are a few new color palettes introduced, with the black dial version with orange accents being the closest to the original, which had red accents. In addition to the black dial, there is a white dial and “tropical” dial with sub-dials in matching colors, and a pair of “panda” and “reverse panda” dials, totaling in five models. All dials feature a “racing” track for a vibrant look and a coarse graining finish that adds visual depth.
