This special edition timepiece from Luxury watch maker Ateliers deMonaco celebrates their partnership with the second edition of the Top Cars Rally that was held in Italy on September 30th 2015.
Launched in 2014 by Steve Domenioz, the Top Cars Rally is a friendly sports car event created by an enthusiast for enthusiasts of fast cars. This year’s rally started in the port of Gênes on Wednesday 30th. After taking the ferry to Olbia in Sardinia they drove to Porto Cervo and spent three fabulous days. During this rally, the racers had the opportunity to try out their talents at the Autodromo “Franco Di Suni” Mores. Other activities included a gala organised by Ateliers deMonaco and the last day was highlighted by a yacht trip along the costa Smeralda to the island of Maddalena. The atmosphere throughout the rally was extremely friendly, a small group of people sharing the same interests for classical cars. The fleet included a Ferrari 599 GTB, Ferrari 458, Ferrari 599 GTO, Audi R8, Mercedes GT and many more. These passionate mechanics share the same love as Ateliers deMonaco for good quality design and technical perfection.
As the official partner of this event, Ateliers deMonaco created specifically for the Top Cars Rally 2015 a unique edition of the Admiral Flyback Chronograph limited to 8 pieces in white gold and 8 pieces in rose gold.
This elegant timepiece features a patented manufacture flyback chronograph, which measures a succession of elapsed times, eliminates many superfluous repetitive operations. On ordinary chronographs, the button must be pressed three times in succession to measure successive intervals: once to stop the chronograph, once to reset it to zero, once to start again. With the flyback function, pressing the flyback button once stops timing the first interval and resets the hand to zero. The chronograph hand starts again the instant the button is released.
