Motorcycles have this notable reputation with thrill-seekers, and it is pretty understandable. If ever a vehicle exudes an air of confidence and freedom, the motorcycle is it. The motorcycle perfectly fits that image of liberation and freedom that appeals to free-spirited souls.
Watches can also share some similarities with motorcycles. Both appreciate the intricacy of moving parts, mechanism, and precision. First, of course, you want a watch that accentuates your passion for motorcycles. This list of motorcycle-inspired watches is dedicated to the designers who are able to express the connection between bikes and watchmaking and the to bikers who appreciate fine watchmaking.

Seiko Spirit Giugiaro
Designed in partnership with Guigiaro, a well-known automobile designer, the Seiko Spirit Guigiaro features a sleek and retro timepiece. The watch face incorporates a similar design to a motorcycle gauge cluster. There are five different Seiko Spirit Guigiaro: black and red, black and orange, black and yellow, black and blue, and gray and orange. As you would have guessed, this is a limited-edition timepiece.
This is a fairly decently sized timepiece with its 43mm case. The band also features flush lugs and is designed so that it can slide in perfectly underneath your motorcycle jacket. Over on the dial, three sub-dials are incorporated, and a small date is displayed inside the sub-dial over at the 3 o’clock position.
We also love how the dial is slightly rotated to the right, making it easy to read when your hands are at the handlebar. The Seiko Spirit Giugiaro is a sleek retro-inspired timepiece that features a distinct design to accommodate bikers.
Casio G-Shock G-Steel (GST-S110-1ACR)
We can’t ignore G-Shock watches in this list, especially their impressive G-Steel series. The G-Shock G-Steel comes with an added defense layer and drops the resin case built-in in favor of an all-stainless steel shell. Additionally, the G-Steel series comes with all the bells and whistles of a modern G-Shock watch, such as Tough Solar technology, 200-meter water resistance, and double LED backlight.
As for the design of the G-Steel, it sure seems to take some inspiration from automobiles with its highly industrial aesthetic. This is a timepiece that I also recommend to fellow bikers precisely due to its functionalities offered to the wearer.

There are also three sub-dials at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions. The blue dial complements the silver-tone case and bracelet quite well and adds a touch of sophistication to the Bulova Curv.
Within the Curv is a Japanese quartz movement that delivers excellent accuracy and will do well in reliability. However, please take note that the watch only comes with a 30-meter water resistance rating, so be careful not to submerge it in water.
