http://www.thewatchbox.com When a championship-winning race car driver runs your company for nearly two decades, motorsports becomes part of the culture. The late Luigi Macaluso was more than a titled rally racer; he was the consummate watch guy. This R&D 01 Chronograph is the distillation of G-P's watchmaking savoir faire and copious input from motorsports professionals. Reversed and inverted chronograph pushers ensure easy access to the timer; an internal bi-directional bezel offers a second short-term timing option for a second event; the dial includes both center chronograph seconds and minutes for easy reference during the "heat of battle." Our example is one of only 20 produced to mark the twentieth anniversary of East Coast Jewelry in 2006. The yellow dial, accents, and contrasting-stitch alligator strap are exclusive to this edition.
