Stop Pressuring Me! Manometro by Mazzuoli

I often see everyday objects and think they'd make a great looking wristwatch. Giuliano Mazzuoli did the same from his inspiration of an antique tire pressure gauge.

Manometro actually means 'gauge' in Italian. Measuring nearly 15mm thick and 45mm wide, it could likely be used as a spare tire itself.

His passion for automobiles will translate into his next timepiece, the Contagiri, inspired by the rev counter in the vintage sports car Alfa Romeo GTAM.
