A RACING LEGACY CAPTURED IN TIME
Imagine owning a truly iconic watch; a timepiece that embodies the rich history of Endurance Racing and motorsports with the winning legacy of The Racers Group as well as one of the most technically sophisticated and ultra-lightweight watches on the market.
BRM Chronographes and The Racers Group have launched a limited edition, record-breaking collaboration on this unique timepiece. The sophisticated SP-44 TRG watch is hand crafted from Titanium and Aluminum, has its graphics laser-etched into the 44mm fortal HR aluminum bazle, custom-painted hands and an ULTRA lightweight Titanium case and all Titanium crown, lugs and screws. This is the world’s lightest chronograph/automatic watch, weighing in at only 54 grams.
Built to exacting specs, these handcrafted watches offer the chance to blend the winning Motorsports Heritage of TRG along with that of BRM and their latest design in high technology and state-of-the-art materials. The watch uses the latest in ultra-lightweight composites, design and construction including titanium and carbon fiber, to craft what is truly a stunning timepiece.
Champion race car driver and The Racers Group CEO Kevin Buckler says,
“Like many these days, I am a “watch guy” especially with our long relationship with 24-hour endurance racing. I am very particular about a watch that I wear and I saw this watch for the first time several years ago as a prototype design and I absolutely had to have it.
With everything getting bigger heavier (and more obnoxious), this watch just blows people away. It’s clean and crisp and almost freaky when you pick it up!I I love it when we are “talking watches” with someone and I hand the watch to them and they always let out a huge chuckle. You can’t believe the weight and feel of this exquisite timepiece, as well as all of the sophisticated design and moving parts.. Just like with our professional race team, we are always trying to find little advantages with weight and some of the cool design cues (like the meticulously “drilled out” buttons and dials) on this watch speak to the exact type of detail that goes into designing winning motorsports programs. I love it!”
Kevin Buckler, CEO of The Racers Group
BRM Americas’ President, Frederic Gasser, added, “TRG is an exceptional example of what’s possible when an organization is passionately committed to the integrity and art of racing, and BRM is honored to engineer the team’s inaugural timepiece. Having partnered with TRG-AMR driver Derek DeBoer for the past two seasons, we welcome this exciting opportunity to expand our collaboration with the TRG family.”
The initial introduction to the BRM brand happened at Le Mans, where Buckler saw and appreciated the watchmaker’s support of the motorsports world. When driver Derek DeBoer, a BRM ambassador, joined TRG-Aston Martin Racing, he brought with him a custom, limited-edition line of BRM timepieces. DeBoer’s watch was widely admired by aficionados, and it was a natural progression to move forward with fully integrating the brand by launching the SP-44-TRG.
“I am so excited to be a part of bringing these two great forces together,” said DeBoer. “My role with BRM and my role with TRG have brought me into two amazing families and I know we’ll all be rising to new heights together. Both bring so much expertise and precision to the table that it fills me with confidence being a part of this great team!”
The SP-44-TRG will have the TRG logo laser-etched into the 44mm Fortal HR aluminum bezel, and will feature custom-painted hands, a skeleton dial, and an ultra lightweight, custom dyed and hand-stitched tech fabric strap. A key feature of the piece is that it ranks among BRM’s record-breaking timepieces, representing the world’s lightest chronograph-automatic watch rendered in hard materials at 54 grams.
