At this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, Corvette Racing’s team dominated at the podium with their C7.R, and thanks to B.R.M.’s collaboration with the American racing team, you can wear an homage to that victory on your wrist.
First introduced before the races, on June 10 in a press release, the Chevrolet Corvette C7.R Racing watch collection is a limited series of just 424 timepieces in total. There are three different designs within the series, and in an image posted to BRM Chronographes Americas’ Facebook page July 9, we can see each design, as well as pricing.
Within the Corvette racing collection, the V12-44-COR-03-E design specifically honors the Le Mans, and is offered in two series to reflect the dual C7.R track cars used. Priced at $10,750 per timepiece, each series of the 24H Series watch will only have 24 examples created. The other two designs will have 100 examples each in a yello and black or grey and black combination, and prices range from $4,370 for the V6-44-COR-05, to $8,550 for the V12-44-COR-01.
As the press release described, the classic C7.R yellow was custom-painted on the hands and dials, while the leather bands’ stitching is reminiscent of racing seatbelts.
When they first introduced the C7.R Racing Collection on their Facebook June 12, B.R.M. also shared a .pdf file with a few more details. Most notably, it states that these timepieces will be available in October, making them the ultimate gift to purchase for those who prefer an early jump on holiday shopping.
