When we set about designing this watch we knew we had to seek permission from the Gulf Corporation that made the racing colours famous. So after a few months of negotiation, they eventually signed off this design and are full aware of how we are celebrating the historic racing they have supported for years.
The round case and dials all came from designs we'd seen from the 1950's, the white from the base colour of the cars. The stainless steel case a nod to historic bumpers found on classics such as the Ford GT, Aston Martins and AC Cobras.
A tribute to the Worlds most famous endurance race, the 24 hours of Le Mans. Held in France in June every year this event tests even the most hardy racing cars and racers to the limit.
Using highly accurate Japanese movements, Racing Chrono Blue is the perfect tribute to the epic racing livery. We painstakingly hand make this watch to be as robust for track driving as it is for every day use.
