Patrick and I have been able to conduct hands-on reviews for a pair of of CT Scuderia watches out of the four reviews we have posted here on the site, and we both are on board with the brand’s signature bullhead design. Probably the one knock is that they are priced into the “aspirational range,” at least for my pocket book. Well, for the next couple of days, there is a sale on CT Scuderia Watches on Touch of Modern, a members only sale-of-the-moment site we point you toward from time to time (join here if you are not already a member).
The entry into the CT Scuderia line utilizes a quartz movement, but the watches themselves are attention grabbers, with definite motor racing ties. The Corsa in yellow or green on a matching NATO strap looks like a stop watch that has been ported to your wrist, complete with the lanyard loop on the crown. The Saturno (above) does away with the lanyard loop and colored pushers, but retains the stopwatch look, and you can get what I am pretty sure is a perforated leather strap (these are very nice from my experience with the brand) on the red, yellow, or blue watches or NATO straps with blue, green or yellow dials. These are all bold timepieces that will get noticed. The last of the quartz chronos is the Veloce, practically conservative in black on a black NATO strap with a white racing stripe. The quartz chronos range from $659 to $779.
Next up price are the three hand automatics. I had a different dial on the Dashboard that I reviewed, but otherwise, the inverse bullhead design of the Dashboard Automatic on sale should be the same. The Salt Flat Racer (banner image) and Salt Flat Racer 0-60 (top) both put the crown back at the 12:00 position and are highly suggestive of dashboard instruments (though the 0-60 has a bit of Flieger style with the handset as well). Ranging from $895 to $995, these automatics boast Swiss movements, sapphire crystals and exhibition casebacks. For a bit under $1,000 you are getting a very bold looking and unique automatic with a Swiss movement. Fathers Day is only a couple of months away, so this could be a buy and stash-away idea for the autosport enthusiast in your life.
The last group of watches are the automatic chronographs. Patrick reviewed the Master Time about a year ago, and the rose gold IP version of the watch is on sale for $1,999. Also offered are four variations of the City Racer, in a stainless case with a black dial with green, yellow, or white accents, or in a black IP case. If you use your chrono for hand timing, the bullhead design is a very natural and comfortable position for the pushers, especially if you take the watch off your wrist. The automatic chronos with Swiss movements range from $1,799 to $1,999.
If you want more details on any of the watches on sale, you can check out the CT Scuderia web site. The sale ends April 1 and noon Pacific, and there looks to be a limited number of some of the watches on sale.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
