The 2017 event is set to be the highest profile event yet and will feature a special tribute to the charities founder, John Surtees CBE, who sadly passed away earlier this year. Last year it raised over £58,000 for the Henry Surtees Foundation which was established by John, following the tragic death of his son Henry.
We are delighted to announce that Freddie Spencer, Derek Bell, Damon Hill, Stuart Graham and Paul Hollywood are amongst those already confirmed to be attending.
Our every growing and increasingly popular breakfast morning meet is happening again on September 24th with a guest list to impress any die hard motorsport fans. The format of the mornings is to simply talk about cars and watches - things we love.
Confirmed guests for the next meet include
DEREK BELL MBE, FREDDIE HUNT, KARUN CHANDHOK, RICHARD ATTWOOD with possibly one or two others yet to confirm.
Cost will be £15 per ticket. Limited to 100 cars and 230 people and will go on sale this week.
Last weekend played host to probably the biggest motor race in the calendar - Le Mans. Porsche brought home another victory followed by a heroic drive by Aston Martin. In attendance was the 5 time winner of Le Mans Derek Bell and his Fox Sports Host son Justin. Justin shot a short video of him receiving an Omologato as gift from his father. we thought it was very entertaining!
We are really excited about this piece but it hasn't been without its issues. When we launched it, we placed an order with the movement suppliers who gave us a confirmed date of May for delivery. This was then put back to October and about 2 weeks ago we were told we would have to wait until early next year to receive them.
Instead of letting customers down, we took the decision to cancel these movements and use the highly accurate Ronda Swiss Quartz movements we are using in the Écurie Ecosse Chronograph. This will bring you a great quality piece and highly accurate time keeping.
We appreciate you may change your mind and welcome any comments you may have, however we are now including free 5 year free battery exchange service on all Maranello® Chronographs , so there won't be any battery replacement costs apart from sending it back to us to keep your chronograph going. You'll also note the price has come down to £599.
This beautiful piece arrives in stock around the 20th July, they are pre-selling well so if you'd like to be amongst the first to receive one place your order soon
