GuardsRed Design (GRD) was launched in 2012 by automotive enthusiast Andrew E. Smith. Smith’s a talented guy, and his line of minimalistic watches that evoke automotive icons are becoming increasingly sought-after items. This one in particular, the LD-52, is of particular interest to us here at OGB because it was inspired by one of
our my favorite cars of all time: the Lancia Delta.
This is a single-hand watch with a face modeled after the Delta HF Integrale’s iconic tachometer. The finish, the fonts, and the colors are pitch-perfect, too, from what I could see in the company’s Twitter photos. I included a few of my favorites, at top, and invite you to let us know what you think of the LD-52 ($369 USD at this link) in the commends section at the bottom of the page.
The LD-52© One-hand is Another Beautiful, yet Simple Product from GRD
Our LD-52© is one of our three part Rally Homologation Series of watches. Inspired by the Lancia Delta Integrale, which dominated the World Rally Championship in the 1980s and early 1990s. Each watch has been crafted with time and care to produce such a stunning piece. With a luminous face and retro gamer look it has captured the quintessential look of the era.
The LD-52© name is in part our ‘thank you’ to our good friends at fifteen52.com whom have played a crucial role in the development and design process of this fantastic watch. Contact the guys at fifteen52.com for some epic wheel design.
