Geared Up


The intersection of the Venn diagram that has motorcycle riders on one side and watches on the other covers a pretty big area. That’s because most of us are clever enough to tell the time. It’s also because we appreciate fine engineering, the sophisticated amalgamation of metal and leather and like a little bit of biking bling dangling off our arm. When it comes to watches with a motorcycle bent, there are plenty to choose from. And because Father Christmas is thinking about what to get all the good boys and girls this year, we thought it wise to showcase these lovely timepieces in an effort to get your lists to the Big Man nice and early. Proper watch geeks will no doubt sneer at the fact that these aren’t worth the same as a semi-detached house in Redditch, but we think they all look rather good and we’d love to wear them all – at the same time, too. Some have a manufacturer flavour, others are connected to racing, so pick your flavour, thrust your choice under a loved one’s eyes as a massive hint for Crimbo and keep your fingers crossed that you get a little wrapped-up box under the tree on the 25th…


Italian artisans Ducati offer this classic timepiece for the discerning Ducatisti. It uses a metal case with a steel top ring, steel crown and steel counter buttons. The strap is, again, hewn from steel. Water resistant to 30 metres and looking every inch the class act - what else were you expecting from Ducati? Carbon fibre?



KTM borrow a Japanese clockwork mechanism in making the Chrono – and aren’t scared about showing it off, either. The case is made from stainless steel while the strap is of a rubber construction. It’s water resistant to 10 atmospheres, and looks decidedly flash what with the obvious orange mated to the visible innards.
