Omologato were delighted to be timepiece partners of the Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsport family.
The relationship with Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports started in 2018. “We knew wanted to enter the American market and to have the opportunity of working with one of IndyCars highest profile teams was a no brainer. This is now our second year and we’re enjoying every second of it!”
Omologato set about to hand make 500 Indianapolis® Chronographs in 2018, the first year of the relationship, which sold out very quickly. The second incarnation of the Indianapolis® Chronograph has just been released, they'll be worn by the drivers and the team all season.
You’ll note the indexes 5,6 and 7 on the dial are exactly as the race car numbers for Hinchcliffe, Wickens and this years IndyCar Rookie Ericsson.
