A person’s watch says a lot about his or her personality. If you gravitate towards timepieces with a classic face and a black leather wrist strap, it’s likely you value timeless accessories that’ll look good forever. If you wear a thicker watch case with a metal wristband, you probably have an active lifestyle and need your watch to keep up. Whatever type of watch suits your taste and lifestyle, we’re sure you’ll agree that the BackFire Automatic Watch race car watch has a certain appeal for car enthusiasts, particularly those interested in Formula One racing.

The first thing you’ll notice about a BackFire race car watch is the spinning transmission system located right on the watch face. This system uses gears instead of a winding mechanism to keep your watch moving. According to the company, BackFire watches are the first to make use of this technology. It’s a pretty cool piece of new tech, isn’t it? So, as you wear this race car watch, the wheel will spin continuously, causing the watch to work. It’s fun to have something that’s always spinning on your wrist. In any case, BackFire is an accessory that’s sure to strike up conversations.

This timepiece has a design that’s similar to the Formula One Halo

But a swanky transmission system isn’t all this race car watch has to offer. This timepiece continues the race car theme in its design, which mimics the Formula One Halo, the roll cage design that protects the driver’s head in the event of an accident. BackFire has integrated the lines of the Halo in the case and the watch’s inner and outer parts. This way, the mechanics as well of the look of this watch echo Formula One.

Another cool feature of the BackFire is the Swiss superluminous nova lights that produce a vivid blue backlit glow on both the auto router and transmission device. This element lets the watch light up just the way the interior of a car would, giving you greater clarity and—most importantly—a more intense style.

You can personalize this Formula One timepiece

And remember when I said that a watch could reflect your personality? BackFire race car watches let you express your style preferences in five different ways. Model One has a navy-blue theme, Model Two has a classic blue theme, Model Three has a black theme, Model Four features copper-tinted metal and a natural leather strap, and Model Five boasts a black leather strap with blue stitching. So no matter what colors you go for, your race car watch can match your look.

BackFire Watches are one-of-a-kind

BackFire also integrated Formula One style into its crown design. This detail was inspired by the Formula One fuel cap so that every part of this watch reminds the wearer of a race car. BackFire watches are one-of-a-kind. In fact, these watches are so hard to come across that a limited-edition serial number is engraved on their side. So you’re pretty much sure to be the only one of your friends wearing this watch.

I, for one, have never seen a watch that embodies its theme so thoroughly. While I’m not a Formula One fan myself, I know plenty of people who are. This is a watch I’m sure they’d be crazy about. And even just plain race car lovers will enjoy the watch’s transmission system. Overall, the design is interesting and impeccable. If you’re a race car fan, BackFire Automatic Watches are a way to bring a bit of the Grand Prix into your every day.

Where can you get one of these timepieces, and how much do they cost? This race car watch amounts to $326.18, and you can pre-order one from Kickstarter.
