Christopher Ward presents new Red C7 Rapide Chronograph, a retro styled timepiece inspired by the golden age of motor racing during the middle part of the last century when ‘gentlemen drivers’ had less regard for their own safety than for each other. Motor racing was an extremely dangerous pastime and spectators, never mind the drivers, often had to be on red alert. The new Red Rapide captures the raw passion, risk and skill of drivers such as Fangio, Ascari, Moss and Brabham while at the same time demanding attention. Features of the new Red C7 Rapide include a split-second stopwatch function, a tachymeter bezel, luminescent indices and hands and 10 atm water resistance. The 42mm watch is powered by a thermo-compensated ETA 251.272 quartz movement and will be available from April 2011.
