[DALLAS] – Bernard Richards Manufacture (BRM) and Corvette® Racing are celebrating the team’s 100th win with a new limited-edition timepiece. Licensed by General Motors, the Chevrolet ® Corvette ® C7.R Racing Collection now boasts a customized watch marking the milestone, in addition to the original five watches released in 2015.
Already sporting an unmatched collection of historic moments, Corvette ® Racing achieved its 100th race victory at the 2016 Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park. Drivers Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner piloted their No. 4 Mobil 1/SiriusXM Chevrolet ® Corvette ® C7.R to the landmark triumph, making Corvette ® Racing the first team in IMSA history to score 100 event victories.
“Achieving 100 victories is a tremendous accomplishment,” said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet ® U.S. Vice President, Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. ” We certainly couldn’t have achieved this milestone without the support of our partners . . . Everyone with Corvette ® Racing operates as one team and embodies the competitive spirit of Chevrolet ® . We’re happy to share this success with our passionate Corvette ® owners and supporters.”
Comprised of only 50 numbered V12-N timepieces, the brand-new series in the Chevrolet ® Corvette ® C7.R Racing Collection features signatures including custom-painted hands and dials in classic Corvette ® red, Corvette ® Racing team logos, and “100 Wins” engravings on the case and crown. A titanium case with black PVD anchors the chronograph-automatic V12-N, which is designed with a 48H power reserve, crystal sapphire front/back, and water resistance up to 100 meters.
The original four series of watches within the Chevrolet® Corvette® C7.R Racing Collection are based on BRM’s V12-44-COR chronograph and the V6-44-COR automatic, and both are available in a combination of yellow/black or black/grey. BRM also engineered two special editions of the V12-44-COR in recognition of the collection’s debut at the 2015 24 Hours of Le Mans; the pair of exclusive 24-model, numbered series reflects the team’s dual C7.R track cars.
