    Design Ethos

    Inspiration of the CENTENAIRE comes from a clock put up at Le Mans in 1959.The original dial was white but over the years this has aged with a lovely patina. The clock is still there. We’re keeping history alive

    The Watch 

    The Centenaire features our bespoke Stainless Steel 316L surgical standard case. Featuring soft push function buttons and a screw-down crown machined from solid Stainless Steel. 


    The dial is hand assembled and has raised indexes with polished steel hands and markers.  The time and seconds hands and date window are filled with luminous X1 Super-LumiNova. The result is an all round watch that can we worn on the track or at dinner.


    The case weighs a comfortable 95g. It measures 41mm in diameter, with a 46mm lug-to-lug, and is just 12.5mm thick. The top of the case is polished, with the case sides finished in a matt finish to give the design some contrast. Blending seamlessly into the design of the cushion-shaped case is a sapphire crystal, which has multiple internal layers of anti-reflective coating. 


    The Centenaire carries a depth rating of 100m or 10ATM.


    Inside the Centenaire is you’ll find the tried and tested Seiko VK64 Hybrid Mechanical movements. As a mecaquartz, the chronograph second hand on the VK64 has a smooth sweeping motion.


    The watch is finished off with an Italian ethically sourced leather strap with contrast stone stitching.


    The Story

    This year we're delighted that #TeamOmologato raced at the 100th 24h of Le Mans! 

    To celebrate this special date in our history we made just 250 Collectors Edition of the OMOLOGATO CENTENAIRE Chronograph Collectors Edition.

    We've had such an overwhelming reaction to being involved with the 24h race at Le Mans this year that we needed to expand our activation.

    Say hello to Nielsen Racing who are the perfect match.

    Nielson started as one car, one truck and a winning Radical European Masters campaign. Eight years and five championship titles later, Sven Thompson and the Nielsen Racing team face their third 24 Hours of Le Mans after earning the team's first entry on merit.

    After breaking all the records in the Asian Le Mans, Nielsen Racing step up to LMP2 in European Le Mans for the team's best season ever in the Series, only missing the podium on the first round and earning our first ELMS race winning team trophy - and third place in the championship!

    “Proud to step up our involvement at Le Mans this year with Nielsen Racing. It’s a great team run with the same values that I run Omologato” said Founder Shami Kalra

    "We are very happy to partner with Omologato for the 2023 24 Hours of Le Mans and the racing season. It's always a pleasure to collaborate with a brand with shared values and passion for what we do best: racing fast and fair!" said Sven Thompson owner of Nielsen Racing
