Indianapolis, Indiana is the place to be this weekend for racing fans as the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 takes place on Sunday. Over 300,000 individuals are expected to attend the Memorial Day Weekend event, which happens to be the largest attended sporting event in America.
It’s no wonder this NASCAR competition is so popular. Auto racing is one the most widely attended spectator sports in America and also throughout the globe with Formula 1 and Grand Prix competitions taking place in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
High-speed racing competitions, along with the fast-paced cars driven in these events and their drivers have served as the inspiration for many fashion trends for numerous decades…from lightweight windproof jackets and driver shoes to shield sunglasses and chronograph watches.
Several prestigious watchmakers have even paid homage to legendary racing competitions with collections named in their honor, including the Rolex Daytona, Chopard Mille Miglia and TAG Heuer Indy 500.
Another watchmaker MOMO Design has deep roots in auto racing. The brand was founded in 1964 by Italian race car driver Gianpiero Moretti and originally produced premium accessories for luxury cars, including steering wheels, gear shift knobs and alloy wheels.
MOMO Design extended its product line-up in the late 1980’s to include racing inspired watches featuring such innovative details as lightweight titanium cases and carbon fiber dials. The brand today remains a leading maker of high-performance wristwatches with modern, cutting-edge design and premium craftsmanship.
