  • Summary

The imposing 47.80 mm steel case is fitted with the famous rubber strap featuring the 1960s Dunlop Racing tyre-read motif. The rectangular integrated pushers are in black rubber-moulded stainless steel, as is the screw-lock crown reminiscent of a tyre and adorned with a metal appliqué bearing the Classic Racing collection steering-wheel emblem.
The lines engraved in the steel sides of the case evoke the cooling fans found on the engine block of classic cars, and this motif is echoed on the dial.
