Jay Leno looks at Bianci WatchesEnlarge Photo
Your wristwatch can say a lot about you as a person. Rolex? Traditional topsider type. Casio? Hipster. TAG Heuer? Leonardo DiCaprio.
Now, a new line of watches wants to tell the world that you're a gearhead -- and it's got Jay Leno on its side.
The line is called Bianci, and one glance at its "Pro Racing Watch" series reveals design inspirations rooted in high-performance automobiles. The bright racing colors, the big faces, and the rugged looks scream "motorsports". Though currently available in stainless steel only, the company will soon offer a dressier leather band, and even a rubber one, embossed with tire treads.
Perhaps the nicest thing about the Bianci lineup is its price-point. Most watches with similar features and style would run well into the four figures, but the Pro Racing Watches are priced between $300 and $364. Not bad, if you're a watch hound.
Jay Leno seems to be a big fan of the line, as we learned from recent installment of Jay Leno's Garage. In honor of that fact, the company is offering a 20% discount on orders of Pro Racing Watches that use the special code "Leno20". That'll cut the price of your $300 watch to $240.
Have a look at the clip below, and if you're so inclined, head over to Bianci Watches for a look at the real things.
