The GT Tour adopts the codes of the ‘Classic’ car race. The matte black dial and the orange minute hand are inspired by the contrast of these two colours on a racing car meter, allowing maximum legibility.
The 371-SE and Carbon versions are even more radical, with a black case and a sandblast finish on the dial, which recalls the coating of legendary cars racetracks. Worn with an automobile leather-style perforated black leather strap, the GT Tour timepiece is a tribute to the golden age of the car race.
THE DRIVER GLANCES AT THE R.P.M. METER… THE MIND IS FIRING…
1960-1990: it was during these years that so many legendary car races took place, forging the very essence of GT Tour timepieces. As the race is about to start, the driver glances at the R.P.M. counter… the mind is firing on all cylinders as the racing cars growl throatily and the powerful odours of oil and fuel saturate the air. All of a sudden, the rubber tyres grip the asphalt urgently, and the driver gets a taste of the thrill of high speed, and of being the first to cross the finishing line. It is when the driver is totally focused on his task that he can, at the very core of his being, dream of victory and adventure. His senses are on high alert, as intense as the headlights piercing the darkness of the night… The GT Tour incarnates these values of precision, high performance and determination.
