The aptly-named Black Watch is just that: a black watch. It features a black case, dark red hands, and a carbon fiber face that makes it look like you were hit by a piece of supercar shrapnel. And, for $139, it can be yours.

This low-cost, high energy piece is inspired by Italian race cars. The Milan-based team created the pieces as an alternatively to flashy, high chrome pieces that race fans know and hate.

Moved by the passion for supercars, the project was born in 2017; three friends have combined the concepts of technology, lightness and elegance to create a brand-new fancy watch: the Black. With roots in Milan, capital of design and fashion, the first idea has taken shape and has been developed to be today a modern and cool sports watch.

The watch ships in March 2018 and the unit I tested looks pretty good. At 40mm it’s a little small for my wrist but the stark styling and handsome nylon band make it a nice tool watch for drivers and drivers to be. It runs a quartz Ronda movement and is surprisingly thin.

So whether you drive a Corolla or a Ferrari or a Vespa, the Black Watch has your back.
