Introducing the new Beekman timepiece, the collaborative watch boasts a 40mm stainless steel build and is clad with a curlicue tachymeter, an intricate and cool complication for gauging the speed of passing objects, intended for racing enthusiasts.
The graphic swirl on the watch dial is a tachymeter scale, allowing the wearer to calculate the time it takes for a moving object. According to the New York menswear label, "To prepare the watch for the speed measurement, the wearer must pull out the watch crown when the second hand is at the 12 position, this will stop the movement of the second hand."
Adding, "As the car passes its starting point, the crown is pushed in to begin the timing process; when the car reaches the end of the course, quickly pull the crown out again. Review the position of the second hand against the tachymeter markings to determine how many miles per hour that car has traveled."
Other notable features of the timepiece include an acrylic domed crystal face, genuine croco-patterned leather strap, an Indiglo night-light accent for easy readability in low-lit conditions and water resistance up to 30 meters.
Priced at $158 USD, the Beekman is offered in two colorways and available exclusively through the Todd Snyder flagship store on Madison Square in New York and online.
