We’re delighted to announce that we’ve teamed up with Mr David Croft, known to millions of F1 fans simply as “Crofty”. David came down to our official stockist Watches of Mayfair this February to collect his Triple-Four Racing Chronograph, just before the 2024 Grand Prix season kicked off.

Our founder Simon Jeffs was on hand to talk him through some of the features that reference Brooklands’ iconic racing circuit, such as the banked outer perimeter and the round counterweights on the chronograph hands, echoing those on the original course clock. As David says: “My Brooklands’ watch is going to fit in very nicely in the Formula 1 paddock.”

David was fascinated by Brooklands’ heritage – and the fact that the circuit officials were able to time races down to a thousandth of a second in the 1930s – just like Formula 1 today. He also revealed that he’s a mechanical watch fan, summing up the reassuring weight and feel of the Triple-Four Racing Chronograph by saying: “Some things are just proper.” We couldn’t have put it any better ourselves.
