Tsovet SVT-GR44 Limited Edition Watch
Limited to only 51 pieces and priced at $3495, this watch was dreamed up to commemorate the 145 wins that the various Chip Ganassi teams have claimed between 1994 and 2011.
The Tsovet SVT-GR44 is limited to 51 units and will come in a wooden display case and include a specially produced book covering the many successes of the Chip Ganassi teams. Sporting a 44mm stainless steel case with a gunmetal finish, the SVT-GR44 is predictably powered by the ETA 7750 offering a maximum 12 hour measure with 30 minute and main seconds resolutions. The dial design is clean and legible with large Hamilton-style numerals and a white-on-red day and date window to match with the red start/pause chronograph pusher. As far as race-inspired chronographs go, I really like this one. The subtle steel-blue coloring of the hands and numerals looks great against the gun metal finish of the case. I appreciate that Tsovet has resisted the urge to decorate the dial with logos or direct mention of the Chip Ganassi racing team, opting instead for a less cluttered dial layout which speaks for itself with contrasting colors and crisp text.
