British luxury watch brand Christopher Ward presents a stunning new Motoring limited edition (40) with the launch of the C9 GT40 – incorporating a precious fragment of a true motor racing legend.
In motoring heritage, few stories set the pulse racing like that of the Ford GT40 #P-1075’s unique successive victory in the world-famous 24 Hours of Le Mans races of 1968 and 1969, using the same chassis. One of only 107 GT40s produced between 1964 and ’69, #P-1075, with its innovative monocoque chassis and evocative pale blue and orange Gulf Oil livery, was an engineering and visual triumph – where British modifications fine-tuned an American automotive powerhouse to create a legend of the endurance racing circuit.
The repurposed C9 case, used across CW’s finest dress watches, is fitted with a plate bearing the #P-1075 chassis number of the double winner of the world’s oldest active event in endurance racing.
The C9 GT40 Limited Edition is offered with a premium quality Italian leather strap with Bader deployment and is priced at £2,950.
