You want a watch that no one else has. You want a watch that is totally different from others. You want quality watch with which you can show of to the public, and others can just envy you. This is the right watch for you. Its new Christopher Ward C70 DBR1 Chronometer. Why is this watch so special. It is because it is actually made with metal recovered during the restoration of the Aston Martin DBR1 that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1959.
Only 100 will be made, and with its uniqueness, the price of $2,675 is not so high. The car, which marked Aston’s only all-out victory at Le Mans in the company’s hundred-year history, recently sold for $31 million, making it one of the most expensive cars ever sold at auction. The medallion sits under the sapphire crystal as the face and is etched with the same number 5 as the car wore on that fateful day. The rest of the 42mm case is made of marine-grade stainless steel, with a metallic British racing green dial and an Italian brown leather strap, top stitched in tan and perforated through which the red underside can be seen.
