Christopher Ward’s Limited Edition C70 British Racing Green follows the sell-out of the C7 Rapide MK II and with its signature racing number “decal” at the 12hr position, it promises to be snapped up faster than you can say ‘Lewis Hamilton’. Adding high-grade fuel to the fire, the limited edition watch is powered by the technically advanced ETA 251.272 movement.
Just 500 of the C70 British Racing Green are now available for pre-order worldwide and are due to be dispatched during the early stages of the 2013 Grand Prix season – conveniently in time for the race at Silverstone. Speaking of which, Christopher Ward are giving away two extremely special VIP tickets for the British Grand Prix. Anyone who buys or pre-orders a Christopher Ward motorsport watch before midnight on 25th March, 2013 will be automatically entered into the draw.
For one lucky punter (and a friend), 2013 will be the year when everything comes together – a brand new Christopher Ward C70 British Racing Green on their wrist, the ear-splitting roar as Jenson and Lewis take their rivalry to the limit on home turf and the chance to spot some of F1’s all-time greats - it’s enough to make you green with envy…
The History of British Racing Green
British drivers first adopted British Racing Green for the Gordon Bennet Cup in 1903 – nearly 110 years ago. The rules stated that components for each car should be made in the country being represented and painted in a ‘national’ colour. The British Napier team could not opt for red, white or blue because Italy, Germany and France (respectively) had already taken them. Motor racing was still illegal in Great Britain so the race was staged in Ireland and Napier decided to paint their cars shamrock green – partly as a mark of respect for their hosts. The colour stuck from that moment on.
