It’s been over 100 years, and French watchmaker Saint Honoré has blessed the world with some unforgettable designs. Now, they’ve turned their sights on car racing and created a watch to go along with their new obsession – the Haussman Forty 7-24 watch.
Letting you put the spirit of Le Mans on your wrist, this chronograph boasts impeccable styling. The dashboard of a race car is reflected in the silver-tinted dial, which features round counters, brightly colored hands and a tachymetric scale that goes up to 407 km/h (that’s the fastest speed ever reached in the Le Mans). It also features the number 15 in orange, which pays tribute to the start time for the mythical 24 Hours races, (15 hours: 3 p.m.) and automatic Valjoux 7750 chronograph movement that can been seen through a transparent crystal.
The Haussman Forty 7-24 watch is self-winding and has a 44-hour power reserve. Its 3-counter chronograph system offers the hour, minute and small second functions and it comes with super cool straps in black, honeycomb rubber and special leather with holes and orange overstitching.
Saint Honoré’s two racing driver ambassadors, Stéphane Sarrazin for Peugeot and Christophe Tinseau for Pescarolo, have already been sporting the Haussman Forty 7-24 at the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup. We’ll let you know when and where you can pick yours up when the information becomes available.
