Watches and the world of motorsport are a natural fit, both of it are mechanical and the products of precise engineering. In the world of motorsport, the winner is determined by the time created by each racer and who is the first one to reach the finish line. So, it’s no wonder that these two instruments can relate to one another.
Many watches come with designs that were inspired by the world of motorsport, therefore, we covered up our 4 motorsport-watch-inspired recommendations below.
Roger Dubuis Excalibur Spider Huracan
Inspired by the Lamborghini Squadra Corse, Roger Dubuis has developed the Excalibur Spider Huracan watch that comes with its unique automobile aesthetic. This watch is fueled by an overwhelming technical complexity and radically assertive but also uncompromising.
Comes with a skeleton dial and 45mm titanium case, this watch equipped with bi-material strap with black rubber base and black Alcantara inlay that features blue stitching and quick release system.
The calibre RD630 was developed specifically for the partnership with Lamborghini Squadra Corse. The calibre has a twin barrel power supply allowing it to reach a power reserve of 60 hours. The rotor is designed like a super car wheel rim.
Blancpain L-Evolution Chronographe Flyback
Blancpain L-Evolution collection is the face of the strong ties between Blancpain and the world of motorsport. This watch comes with movements that combine cutting-edge technologies and the time-honoured art of watchmaking. The calibre features three coupled barrels that have a 8 day power reserve.
The modular construction of the L-evolution cases has been specially designed to offer exceptional flexibility in the choice and combination of materials and finishes. The imposing and robust L-evolution timepieces catch and draw the gaze into the depths of their layered dials.
Chopard Mille Miglia GTS Azzuro
Each year, the Chopard Maison unveils a new collection of Mille Miglia watches to celebrate what is regularly dubbed the most beautiful race in the world. In this latest edition, the Mille Miglia GTS Azzurro Chrono that comes in stainless steel and with a dashboard-inspired dial, also joins the collection.
This model features an elegant “Azzurro” blue dial, which contrasts superbly with the “Mille Miglia red” used for the detail of the hands and the instantly recognisable, arrow-shaped race logo framing the date window.
This watch is powered by a COSC-certified self winding mechanical chronograph movement that features a 48 hour power reserve and a stop second function.
