[vc_row][vc_column][vc_gallery interval=”0″ images=”940,943,944,939,942″ img_size=”1200×736″ onclick=””][vc_column_text]Direnzo Watches represent the nostalgic tribute to the family of the race cars. The founder of this amazing watch brand ~ Sergio Godoy Di Renzo honors and respects his name alongside the family’s history and he hopes to create a story, a history of his own, his legacy.

Their Kickstarter campaign currently has raised $49,784 out of a goal of $20,650 in under two weeks and they have another 17 days to go. That’s an amazing achievement. Just by looking at this you can instantly understand the work that has gone into these watches and this brand.

The Type 250F line of the Direnzo watches takes inspiration from the race cars of the ‘40s and ‘50s era that made history and can easily say they changed the automotive industry forever. To be more precise they take their inspiration from the Maserati 250F which was the winning car of the Formula 1 Grand Prix race of Nürburgring which was driven by Juan Manuel Fangio. Having in mind the driver and the car the watches couldn’t be less unique and luxurious looking.

Direnzo watchcases are made out of durable, surgical grade 316L stainless steel which measures at 40mm in diameter while their thickness is only 10.10mm thick. On top of that their watches are 5ATM water resistant and of course they come with a thick 1.5mm double domed anti-reflective coated sapphire crystal. What more can we ask for? They come in four color combinations; Black, White, Blue and Green dials with their matching minimal leather bands. Moreover, their dials are screaming race cars because the way they are designed can’t remind you anything else. They use Arabic numerals for the main numbers 3,6,9 and a double 0 for the number 12. The hands are very respective of the whole idea of the watch and they honestly couldn’t be a better fit for this dial. All versions of the 250F line have a red seconds hand that swipes amazingly and reminds the tachometer of a sports car.  Honestly 10/10 for appearance and design. The movement inside that inspiring timepiece is a Seiko NH35. This movement has been used a lot by newcomers into the watch industry because of the precision and reliability it offers. It has a bi-directional winding rotor which permits a fast winding by normal wearing. The movement features 24 jewels and has a beating of 3Hz (21600 vibrations per hour) and it offers 41 hours of power reserve. The leather strap and the pin buckle both feature the Direnzo logo.

Our honest opinion about the Direnzo watches is that they have put a lot of hard work into them and they honestly seem like they know what they are doing. The pricing of their 250F line starts at $310 for the early birds. You can purchase them at their Kickstarter campaign which is slowly but steady skyrocketing.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Get it Here” color=”black” size=”lg” align=”center” button_block=”true” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.kickstarter.com%2Fprojects%2Fdirenzowatches%2Fdirenzo-watches|||”][vc_btn title=”Direnzo Website” size=”lg” align=”center” button_block=”true” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.direnzowatches.com%2F|||”][vc_btn title=”Direnzo Facebook Page” color=”primary” size=”lg” align=”center” button_block=”true” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FDirenzo.Watches|||”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
