It is often repeated but the most obvious link that can connect the world of watchmaking and that of top-level sport is none other than the mechanical side of both worlds. Thus, it appears normal that many watchmakers are turning to sports where the mechanics are indispensable. While we often highlights the close relationship between motor sport and horology, we should not underestimate the world of two wheelers. And on the subject, the reference is to the Moto GP. In the premier class of motorcycle, the greatest drivers be counted on the fingers of one hand. And these can claim to have a well stocked wrist to take the handlebars during races. The proof in pictures!
