You don’t need us to explain the relation between motor racing and time. Ever since the glory days of the ‘60s and ‘70s, watch manufacturers have supplied drivers with their latest chronographs, and had their logos stitched into the fireproof suits of racing royalty.
For this 144-page handbound book, Assouline consulted historian Nicholas Foulkes (who needs no introduction in the watch community) to select the 100 breakthrough timepieces of the 20th century, all whilst paying close attention to factors such as rarity, costliness, historical importance, innovation and of course design. With such a deep passion for watches at 8JS, we had to share this with you!
