"The timepieces had to capture the spirit of what is undoubtedly one of the most iconic sports cars of all time in a subtle and intelligent way.”
Drawing inspiration directly from the car, the 43mm watches feature a black dial based on the look of a Lightweight RPM gauge and a subtle ‘red zone’ quadrant. The chamfered hour and minute hands replicate the instrument’s tachometer needle.
The Trip-Tick® case is constructed from polished stainless steel and the winding crown is engraved with the pattern of the period-correct Dunlop racing tyres fitted to the E-Type.
The Case Back
Turning the watches over reveals a further reference to the car in the form of the automatic winding rotor - visible through a sapphire crystal case back - which takes the form of an exquisite miniaturisation of an alloy-spoked Lightweight E-Type steering wheel.
