The term 'Bellytanker' comes from the nickname for the rocket cars raced by Desert Salt Flats Speed Racers. Bellytankers were rocket cars fashioned out of surplus fuel cannisters that were originally attached to planes for long bombing runs. Once discarded by the military, these proved to be the ideal cockpit for these desert race cars, cheap and solid!
So Called 'El Dusty for the bronzed copper dial which was inspired by the sunburnt and washed out look of these legendary racers and designers. It was a badge of honor and these fearless chasers of the sun sacrificed their skin bodies and lives just for the thrill! This washed out copper dial paired with the simple hand stiched distressed leather strap recreates and celebrates that look, feeling and energy.
