(There is likewise a chronograph in the Williams assortment, estimated only somewhat over our roof, at $3,100.) The watch’s 44-mm tempered steel case follows the state of a Williams F1 vehicle, tightening like the vehicle’s profile and furnished with coordinated drags that reverberation the state of its nose cone. The crown, in the mean time, has been formed to take after the state of a wheel from the vehicle’s gearbox. The dial, accessible in both dark and the conventional blue of the Williams group, shows the day and date at 3 o’clock and a Williams “W” at 6 o’clock.

The domed sapphire precious stone is designed to be cockpit-accommodating, limiting glare with a nonreflective covering applied to within. The enormous, white Arabic numerals additionally help in neatness, standing out distinctly from the dark dial and imprinted in Super-LumiNova. (The hour and moment hands are likewise loaded up with the glowing substance.) The date shows up in a window at 3 o’clock, while the little seconds tick away in a subdial at 9 o’clock.
