The Race Of Champions is to motor racing what Louis Moinet is to traditional watchmaking: both draw on the conventions of their respective worlds, to which they seek to add an extra, very special touch.
For this, its first association with the event, Louis Moinet has come up with a limited edition of 29 “ROC” timepieces – one for each year of the event’s existence. Housed in a black PVD steel case, the automatic two-pusher chronograph combines steel and carbon fibre with a sapphire caseback featuring the race’s insignia, engraved on the rim. In a further nod to the event, the piece’s oscillating weight is designed to resemble racecar brake discs. The orange tachymeter bezel and “Race Of Champions Watch” hands are easily readable for drivers, as are the white counters, contrasting nicely with the black background.
