March 19, 2019 – Beverly Hills CA –

Ritmo Mundo, the 17 year old independent Italian designed California lifestyle watch brand announces its continued sponsorship of Indycar driver Marco Andretti.

As a brand ambassador, in 2018 Marco helped co-design and launch his limited edition Racer timepieces which sold out. In 2019, Marco joins forces with his wife, Marta Andretti, and they have set their sights on the Quantum II collection with customized and personal engraving available across the entire line.



“Since 2007 Ritmo Mundo has had a long-standing relationship with the auto racing world. From our official license with INDYCAR to our individual sponsorships with teams and champion drivers, our continued partnership with Marco makes perfect sense. I am thrilled to have Marta join us as a brand ambassador. Marta and Marco’s style and lifestyle goes hand in hand with our brand DNA” stated Ritmo founder and President Ali Soltani.

“Motorsport is part of Ritmo Mundo’s heritage and as a third-generation driver, I can certainly appreciate that,” says Andretti, noting the style and quality of Ritmo Mundo watches. “I look forward to another season of representing their brand on the race track and in the consumer marketplace. Also, I think it is pretty cool that, this year, Marta joins the Ritmo family so that we together can showcase the beautiful his-and-her Quantum II line.”



Marta Andretti’s professional life is busy as singer, model, actress, television personality, presenter, fashion designer, humanitarian, and animal activist. She married Marco in 2017 after several years of dating.

Marco Andretti is a third-generation IndyCar driver following in the family footsteps. Grandfather Mario is second all-time in Indy car wins with 52, including the 1969 Indianapolis 500. Father Michael ranks fourth all time with 42 wins. Michael became a team owner in 2003 in what was then Andretti Green Racing. It has been Andretti Autosport since 2010 and will again field four entries in IndyCar Series competition in 2019 for drivers Marco Andretti, Ryan Hunter-Reay, Alexander Rossi and Zach Veach.

The 2019 season began with the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on March 10th. The biggest race of the season will be 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 on May 26, 2019. Ritmo Mundo and the Andretti’s look forward to a great race season.

OMG….Shut UP


Our brand is not backed by the financial balance sheets of Swiss, Japanese, or American conglomerates, supported by thousands of employees working for a common purpose.

Our brand does not enjoy the ability to make errors that can be swiped through financial/accounting methods to hide those mistakes in production, in marketing, and in choices of partners.

Our brand does not have the ability to host lavish parties for bloggers, journalists, influencers and even retailers to exotic wonderful destinations in order to sway the opinions of those with power to write or power to purchase.

Our brand doesn’t have the resources to create the less than accurate stories of our company’s historical beginnings, or the raise d’être of our DNA, and partnerships with celebrities.

What our brand lacks above is more than offset by qualities which we have had for 15 years to survive in the watch jungle. We have made a small impact on offering alternative designs, watches, and perspectives to what is alternatively a very mono-chromatic universe of self-hype, perpetuated by press, bloggers, and even retail operators.

Our brand has freedom. First and foremost, our freedom is to create new offerings. Second, our freedom is the ability to nimbly navigate the ever-changing retail spectrum.

Our brand has loyalty of our consumers. Over 15 years, we have over 500,000 end users enjoying our watches. This loyalty has been earned and is our prized accomplishment.

Our brand has friendship of hundreds of consumers, journalist, and retail partners globally. This supporting cast is the main-cast in perpetuating us forward.

Our brand offers access. Access is not abridged but by one degree of separation. A bridge to speak about any matter is a phone call or an email away. Less forget, when we err, we realize it first-hand. We suffer the consequences of such decisions personally. Thus, we are continually monitoring our business and those of our partners.

Finally, our brand is about passion. An individual’s passion to make each watch a personal connection to the user. In today’s world, access to time is plentiful. Access to time telling mechanisms are no longer about telling time, but rather a personal statement of one’s core belief systems and one’s lifestyle. Therefore, it is imperative that our time today is about telling time personally.

SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY movement was created to naturally support small business that are sandwiched between mammoth corporate retailers hijacking retail from the Black Friday Week and up to and through online-retailers of the same on Monday with Cyber-Monday.

Statistically, the US has more small business than larger corporate entities The small business sector is the driving force of both state and federal tax base contributions. Furthermore, most consumers work for a small business owner/operator. Concurrently, a majority of jewelry and watch retailers are also small business promoting their business’ today.

Despite the aforementioned, it’s ironic that the majority of these operators decide apposite to their core beliefs when it comes to product selection often going for the “big brands” rather than the niche brands and/or alternatives. Consumers can sway decisions with the power of their wallet and demand a better menu of options to include their core values.

Bloggers, influencers, and journalist are also small business’. Yet daily, these individuals at best unconsciously, or at worst consciously decide to promote the big brands that favor, court, and give offerings to them. It’s ironic that many of those with power of digital pen promote their individuality, independence and not being swayed by others, but willing to jump quickly at the opportunity for a business class trip to a far flung destination to party with their hosts, and thereafter write about their experiences. Time to think and demand access to more real individuality on the part of the press/bloggers that the current menu offerings. The clouds of war do fog up decisions, and in today’s retail climate, it is imperative to be honest with ourselves as much as we are with others.

 Thank you.
