Louis Moinet Race of Champions
For the first time, Louis Moinet is an official partner of the race of Champions, an exceptional race that takes place over a weekend during which the best racing drivers and motorbike riders in the world from all disciplines compete against each other.
In Miami, on January 21-22, was held the race of Champions, a race that brings a unique dimension to motor sport. By bringing together all types of driver (rally, F1, etc.) at the same venue, on the same day, with the same cars, the Race of Champions is an opportunity to award a prize to the fastest driver in the world. This year, the 16 contestants included Sebastian Vettel (four-time winner of the Formula One World Drivers’ Championship), Felipe Massa (who has clocked up 11 Formula One Grand Prix wins), David Coulthard (who has won a further 13), and Petter Solberg (three-times World Rally Champion), not to mention Jenson Button.
For 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.
Ateliers Louis Moinet was born out of the passion of one man, and this is clearly to be seen in each of its creations. The Maison takes the concept of exclusivity to its height, producing only limited editions.Find out more >
