Introducing the Nelson Piquet watch by LOUIS MOINET


The case of the Nelson Piquet chronograph draws on recent technological innovations in motor racing, with a screw-down steel bezel on a carbon fibre base. The same carbon fibre reappears in the inserts of the pushers at 2 and 4 o'clock, both engraved with the chequered flag motif.

The blue "Côtes de Genève" guilloché dial concentrates the chronograph counters and luminescent hands. The rubber strap will appeal to motor-racing fans and admirers of the three-times Formula 1 world champion.
