A gift from son to father, for use at the races
Born in 1931, Sir Terence Conran remembered his father going to the races at Brooklands, as well as his mother learning to fly at the Flying Club. Nearly 80 years later, he relished the opportunity to design a watch with his father in mind.
During a visit to Brooklands, Sir Terence was particularly taken with the Napier-Railton, a car designed and built at Brooklands for John Cobb and fitted with a Napier Lion Triple-Four aero engine. The Napier-Railton holds the all-time Brooklands lap record, set in 1935.
Limited to 500 pieces, each individually numbered, the watch's exhibition back reveals a rotor design representing the master rod and two articulated conrods of this legendary aircraft engine.
