Independent watchmaker Anton Suhanov, presents Racer Retro, his wristwatch inspired by vintage cars.

In 2023, Anton Suhanov announces the launch of the Racer Retro watch, inspired by classic cars and the emotions they evoke in fans and collectors.

Cars have played an important role in people’s lives for more than a century. No wonder there is a large number of fans and collectors of retro cars, who admire the creativity reflected in the development of numerous designs and technologies. This admiration for automotive civilization is the main motive that led Anton Suhanov to design a new Racer Retro. Without committing to a specific type or era of the automotive industry, he has tried to convey with this watch the image of a retro car that is sure to evoke an emotional response.

In the Racer Retro, the main features of the original Racer Jumping Hour GMT, which were very well received by professionals and the public, are clearly visible. These include an unusual dial design with two retrograde time counters and a discreet display of the additional functions - seconds, date and GMT - a cushion-shaped steel case constructed on the principle of a regular Reuleaux polygon, and a distinctive GMT button that breaks the symmetry of the design and gives the watch an eye-catching character. Watch enthusiasts will have noticed the outstanding esthetic and technical qualities of the Su100.20 caliber, Racer Jumping Hour GMT movement. The only thing that could make you change the design of this watch is the fact that the finely crafted movement of Racer Jumping Hour GMT remained hidden under the dial. That's why Anton Suhanov had a plan ready when this model was introduced. Now that we have the Racer Retro in front of us, this decision seems obvious - to ensure that the excellent caliber is visible through the openings in a skeletonized dial.
