The natural pairing celebrates their shared passion for motorsports and are united by their dedication and commitment to the art of racing. The launch of the Chevrolet Corvette C7.R Racing collection is appropriately timed for the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans; a place where B.R.M’s founder, Bernard Richards first realised his love for motorsports over four decades ago. B.R.M has successfully absorbed the race car’s legacy and allowed for the watch platform to become a reflection of the influence. In particular, the artisans have embraced the spirit and design of Corvette using their expertise to guarantee a high excellence of technical precision. Ensuring that the timepieces possess B.R.M’s uniqueness and signature style the perforated hands are custom-painted in a classic C7.R yellow and the top stitching on the leather strap echoes a racing car seatbelt.
Manufactured to a limitation of 100 pieces each the collection is an exclusive and special honour to the partnership. The sound and speed of the Corvette is what drives Bernard Richards passion for the brand bringing a sense of adrenaline and thrill to all aspects of the watch label and of course, the unveiling of the new ‘unforgettable’ collection. His personal obsession and love for racing is laced in the B.R.M brand and will continue to inspire in the future.
Frederic Gasser, president of BRM Americas states: "Racing was built into BRM's DNA, and it's an honour to become a part of the Corvette® family and to join forces with an organisation that's shaped modern motorsports.”
