Titoni has been around since 1919 and was founded in Grenchen, Switzerland, by Fritz Schluep. The company has been family-owned and operated ever since. In the 1950s, the company adopted a plum blossom as its logo. The plum blossom symbol can be found on the dial, case, and crown of the Race King model we have here today. The Race King was released circa 1971, built for calculating speed on the race track with a tachymeter scale around the edge of the dial.
This Race King has a design that is all its own. It looks almost reminiscent of a Yema Rallye or Bulova Chronograph with the “surfboard” dial, but Titoni took the aesthetic even further. They extended the area around the sub-dials to go around the date at six o’clock, making it truly unique. We love this quirky aesthetic as well as the combination of the blue dial with grey registers. There’s also a visually interesting grid-like pattern in the center of the dial – wild stuff, right?
Titoni added a nice pop of color with red numerals on the periphery of the dial and red text on the date wheel. This watch also comes with its original Titoni-signed bracelet that has an unusual link shape, another characteristic that adds to this watch’s unique and interesting aesthetic.
