Watch Wednesday: A Watch Inspired By A Famed English Racetrack

Watches do not get sportier than this

Graham Silvestone RS

The Silverstone race track is one of the oldest circuits in Great Britain and home to the British Grand Prix. It has been around since the late 40’s and the first British Grand Prix race was held there in 1950. The circuit is also known as the home of British motor racing. The Graham Silverstone RennSport (RS) is a watch named after the famed circuit and is every bit as sporty as the racetrack.

The watch bezel is available in different colour combinations. In this case, a navy blue surface with white tachymeter numbers. Its navy blue dial gets a chequered pattern with large numerals. It contrasts well with the steel finished hour and minutes hand and the red seconds hands. Due to the large face, there is enough space for a weekday and date window. It gets three subdials which house seconds, 30 minutes and 12 hours chronograph counters. Overall, the face has a busy but well-executed layout.
