At the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Larbre Competition glow in the dark art car stole the show. The original paint scheme, created by Frenchman Ramzi Adek, wasn’t Corvette’s first French art collaboration however.
French watchmaker B.R.M has created a stunning line of Corvette inspired timepieces. The Corvette® Racing Collection is made up of five models: a 24-Hour Chronograph model, two Automatic models, and two Chronograph Automatic models.
Inspired by the collection’s launch at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the 24-Hour Chronograph operates on military time. The hour hand travels 360 degrees through the dial only once a day. The edition is limited to only 24 pieces.
Automatic time and date models feature a yellow and black or grey and black color scheme. The edition is limited to 100 pieces per model.
Like the Automatic, the Chronograph Automatic also features a yellow and black or grey and black color scheme. Three smaller dials representing seconds, minutes, and hours adorn the face, as these editions bear a stopwatch feature. Each model is also limited to 100 timepieces.
All Corvette® Racing Collection watch cases are 44mm and contain high grade Swiss movements. The watches are water-resistant to 100 meters, and include a 3 year warranty.
Depending on the model, prices range from $4,370 to $10,750.
