Detroit Watch Company 42mm & 44mm M1-Le Mans Classic Chrono Watch

We love automotive inspired timepieces here at The Coolector and, to be quite honest, they seldom come much classier than these stunning 42mm & 44mm M1-Le Mans Classic Chrono Watches from American brand, the Detroit Watch Company. If you’re in the market for a new timepiece with speed at its core, look no further than this wonderfully well crafted accessory.

The Detroit Watch Company 42mm & 44mm M1-Le Mans Classic Chrono Watches have a price tag of $1995 which is entirely reasonable given the superb features that are inherent throughout these race-inspired timepieces. There are a number of different design inspirations for these watches including the 1970 Porsche 917K, chassis 024 which was used as a test car for Le Mans before becoming the star car that Steve McQueen drove in the 1971 movie Le Mans with number 20 (and our personal favourite here at Coolector HQ).

Make Your Wrist Race Ready

Le Mans is one of the most respected race events in the world and serves as the inspiration for this magnificent series of timepieces from one of our favourite watchmakers, the Detroit Watch Company. Everywhere you look with this new release from the American watchmaker, you’ll see mighty impressive features and this is especially true of the Swiss Valjoux Eta 7750 Automatic & Manual Winding movement with 25 jewels. This chronograph movement has a shock-absorber-Incabloc, anachron hairspring, Glucydur Balance which operates at 28800 Vibrations Per Hour, 4Hz with an impressive 48-hour power reserve.

The Detroit Watch Company 42mm & 44mm M1-Le Mans Classic Chrono Watches ($1995) has a display by means of hands; hour, minute, second with a day-date display in window alongside a min sub-dial counter, hour sub-dial counter, small second sub-dial and hour markings to make this one of the most striking and stylish watches from the American watch brand to date.

With a 50m water resistance and brushed stainless steel casing, these wonderful watches are as adventure ready as they come. For any lover of automotive infused timepieces or those with a penchant for the world of Le Mans racing, this new series of timepieces from the Detroit Watch Company are nothing short of essential in our opinion here at The Coolector. This is a limited edition release so, if you like what you see, make sure you don’t miss out on this one.
