Speedometer Official has designed a collection of bangles that use the same design as the famed Rolex Oyster watch bezels – not only for fast and furious car enthusiasts, naturally.
Speedometer Official came up with an indeed very clever design for some cool wrist gear. In fact, the Italian brand tapped the design of the Rolex Submariner, Rolex Explorer and of course Rolex GMT-Master to create a very stylish set of of marine steel wrist bangles.These Speedometer Official bangles are both designed, and created in Italy out of 316L marine steel and aluminium, they come in a variety of styles and colors (including steel and blacked out steel versions).
Hopefully they are releasing globally in the upcoming months. Until then though, visit their official page, Speedometer Official.
Did you know that? A speedometer or a speed meter is a gauge that measures and displays the instantaneous speed of a land vehicle. Speedometers for other vehicles have specific names and use other means of sensing speed. For a boat, this is a pit log. For an aircraft, this is an airspeed indicator. Charles Babbage has been credited with creating an early type of a speedometer, which was fitted to locomotives. The electric speedometer was invented by the Croatian Josip Belušić back in 1888, and was originally called a velocimeter. Mind that the isochronous speedometer was first patented in 1912 by it’s inventor Bahne Bonniksen, a Danish horologist who came to England as a young man to learn his trade. Before 1912 speedometer mechanisms relied mostly on “governor” type systems where spinning bob-weights would be flung further outwards as the road speed increased. These devices were rather inaccurate, being affected by vibration, friction and wear in the moving parts. Bonniksen’s new speedo used a totally fresh approach. He reasoned that speed is simply distance divided by time. His mechanism measures time using a watch-type movement.
