The Isle Of Man TT is considered the last bastion of motorcycle racing and for good reason. With bikes racing on regular streets, past exposed buildings and signposts exceeding speeds of 300kmph, fatalities are fairly common. Swiss watchmaker Wryst celebrates the Isle of Man TT with this sporty timepiece.
The watch has a unique 50mm stainless steel case with a black diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating that is highly resistant to scratches. It gets unique flanges on both sides, one of which partially covers the black crown and the red and yellow anodised chronograph buttons. Underneath the sapphire crystal sits a busy black face with large black and white hour and minute and a red seconds hands. The face has a combination of odd numbers represented by black and white lines and the numbers by large yellow numeric symbols.
There are a number of Isle of Man TT logos on the watch. You have two on the dial, two on the watch strap, one on the crown, and a large one on the stainless steel back plate. The plate also mentions the watch’s special edition status with a unique serial number.
The watch runs on Swiss chronograph movement. It even has a date counter at the 3 o’clock position. The three chronograph subdials sit at the 12, 6 and 9 o’clock positions. It is water resistant up to 100 metres. The Wryst TT watch gets an equally sporty 25mm yellow and black silicone strap.
As far as limited edition watches go, the Wryst Isle of Man TT is a steal at USD 995 (Rs 75,000). Sadly, it’s been sold out so you might have to find a TT enthusiast willing to part with one.
