Chotovelli Dashboard JTS40001

Chotovelli e Figli, translated to Chotovelli and sons, is a third Generation of ‘orologiaio’ (watchmaker) From Torino. These big size Watchmakers are known for their bold and exclusive designs derived and inspired by old gauges and speedometers of classic "Made In Italy" cars and the aviation industry. 

It all started in the late 1920’s with Simone Chotovelli, the first Chotovelli Orologiaio. His craftsmanship and specialty in repairing and restoring old mechanical and automatic movements was well known. In 1967 he passed the knowledge and know-how to his son Yitzchak Chotovelli who continued the wishes of his Father and by that carried on the legacy to become a well-established watchmaker. In 2005, brother and sister Ilan and Tamara Chotovelli revived the family tradition, launching a unique Retro Pilot collection, unsurpassed in craftsmanship and style. The recognition and demand of these timepieces around the world is a testimony to their premium quality and exceptional eye for detail.

The 4000 Series (Quatro mila) came out late 2010. Inspired by vintage gauges and speedometers made by the Italian iconic car maker Alfa Romeo, this is the perfect value for money, stylish sports watch for the car enthusiast, who does not want to drop USD 3,000 on a similarly inspired Manometro by Giuliano Mazzuoli. This series features a very elegant, minimalist design with black dial and easy to read Arabic numerals. The 13.10 mm thick case is 50 mm in diameter and will appeal to fans of oversized watches. The case comes in shinny finished stainless steel and black diamond-like-carbon finish on the sides. The strap is uncompromising, thick tan leather, the calf skin is hand crafted and unusually the strap is fitted directly into the case. No lugs, just four screws clearly visible giving it a vintage look. Finally, the atypical position of the crown at 4 o’clock is a highlight which gives the watch its special appeal.

On the wrist, the Dashboard JTS 4000 is pleasant to wear, easy to read, and from the first glance, immediately arouses interest about the brand and its heritage. The price of entry for this designer crafted, vintage style sports timepiece is a very reasonable USD 295.
