Four new watches join this emblematic collection. Designed for daily wear, they introduce a sleeker, contemporary style together with enhanced legibility.

Several newly designed features make this refreshed timepiece stand out from its stylish predecessors. The dial – in sunray black or sunray blue – has evolved to become even more legible, ideal for drivers as they speed towards the finish line or cruise down the open road. The counters on the chronograph’s three subdials are larger and more pronounced. Instead of a dot of SuperLuminova® at each index, the index markers are now subtly filled with the luminescent material for optimal visibility in any condition. A dash of colour enhances the overall appearance of the timepiece – on the black dial, a red accent graces the tips of the central seconds hand and subdial hands, the start/stop pusher and the flange from 12 to 3 o’clock. On the models with a blue dial, the accent is orange.

Further distinguishing the new models is the stainless-steel case, which appears thinner and sleeker due to the shorter lugs and a balance of brushed and polished finishes that give the watch a more dynamic character. The new length and style of the lugs make the watch more comfortable to wear – day after day, race after race. The black or blue ceramic bezel also appears larger since it no longer has a metal ring along the outer edge. This change underscores the sporty look of this elegant timepiece.
