Between tradition and modernity, the Tricompax is a watch inspired by the golden age of motor racing. The three-counter chronograph has been the watch of choice of the greatest legends and most sensational racers in the sport since the 1960s.
Amongst the nods to motorsport: the tachymeter scale bezel designed to measure speeds up to 200 km/h and two colors recalling the intensity of the competition. The seconds hand, the minute counter and its hand are adorned with orange, while the hour register and its hand are yellow.
This chronograph represents the beginning of an important chapter for us. For this watch, we have chosen the Sellita SW510-M, a Swiss hand-wound mechanical movement, perfectly in the spirit of our chronograph. With over 60 hours of power reserve, this complication movement is known for its exemplary quality and reliability.
Once an essential accessory for any racer or team member, stopwatches play an important role in every race weekend, allowing to measure and compare lap times on the track, or special stage times in rallying.
Inspired by the design of the Tricompax, this pair of chronographs is perfectly adapted to a sporting use thanks to its "flyback" function. This complication, allowing the reset and the start of a new count simultaneously, is ideal for car racing.
To stay in the sporty and vintage spirit of this chronograph, we chose to develop a comfortable metal bracelet inspired by the 70s. This «flat link» perfectly follows the curve of the wrist thanks to its fine and flexible links, while its polished and brushed finish allows to combine elegance and sportiness.
Easily adjustable thanks to its many independent links and micro-adjustments, simple to attach and detach from the watch, it is the ideal accessory to get into the mood of race weekends.
The Tricompax Baltic x Peter Auto edition was limited to 300 pieces, each one numbered with an engraved case back from 1 to 300.
More than just a watch, this collaboration with Peter Auto represents our vision of a union between motor racing and watchmaking. As much as glory and victory, gentleman-drivers come for an experience, which must be unique. It is this experience that we wanted to offer.
In its case, the Tricompax is accompanied by several accessories that recall the parallels with motor sports. The two stopwatches are set on an anodized aluminum plate from CarBone Liveries, ideal for integrating them into your dashboard. The flat link strap, supplied with a specific screwdriver for adjustment, can be changed with the taupe colored calf leather strap.
