THE C4-R N°1

In June 1952, after 24 hours of muscular driving, the C4-R spider – masterfully held for 20 hours by the flamboyant entrepreneur and “gentleman driver” Briggs Cunningham himself, as well as Bill Spear – ended the intense and legendary Le Mans race and won the class victory for cars over 5 liters.

TACHYMETER:
MEASURE AN AVERAGE SPEED

How to use the tachymeter to measure the average speed of a car between two points at 0km (A) and 1km (B)?
1. When the car passes the point A, start timing with the bezel by placing the 12:00 o'clock arrow of the bezel at the time the second hand is / was.
2. When the car passes the point B, read the elapsed time in seconds on the bezel. For instance, 20s.
3. Rotate back the bezel to 0 and read on the tachymeter scale the speed matching the elapsed time from step 2. For instance, if a car passed the point B at 20s you can read 180km/h on the tachymeter scale, so the car had an average speed of 180km/h between the point A and the point B.

    THE "GRAND PRIX" RACING WATCHES
    In the early 1960s, Wolbrook and its sister brand Douglas introduced the "Grand Prix" watches. 

    The kind of racing watch car enthousiasts and "petrol heads" would wear and car industry members - like CHAMPION sparkplugs - would choose to partner with.
