Historic Grand Prix 2016 (sponsored by Tudor watches)Last weekend i was invited to participate in Tudor again on the circuit in Zandvoort. Burning rubber, historic power horses and of courseTudor replica watches!Once we entered the Paddock Club we had been welcomed by the Spitfire air act. Immediately after this 3-litre engined F1 cars fired up and the Fia Masters race begun. We had sight around the famous 'Tarzan' curve. The music of those accelerating beasts did turn a smile on every race car lover. Overall, the championships were very diverse. To call some: 500cc Formula 3, Pre '66 touring cars plus the 1000cc Historic Formula 3. Every one of the greats have there been. From Bugatti to Ferrari.From the Paddock Club Tudor had their booth lined up. As background a tremendous banner gave the customer an excellent introduction to Tudors' history and the link with sports cars. Many Tudor replica watches were there. New and vintage ones. Needless to say with famous chronographs with the seventies: e.g. the Oysterdate (ref. 7032/0) and the Oysterdate 'Montecarlo' (ref. 7149/0, which replaced the 7032/0). Both using a tachymetric scale on the bezel to determine hourly average speeds between two points. Thus, a link between the replica watches and cars. Read more about the historical past of such chronographs on the official Tudor website.Circuit TourAs soon as the tour began more similarities between two worlds did start to appear. Similar to most things, race cars also started small. People built the very first sports cars in their own workshops by adjusting production cars of the time. Race cars were increasing in popularity over time and things were professionalized and commercialized. Like the watchindustry, a team of professionals were now constantly thinking 'What could we change to improve?'. A great demonstration of this might be seen on the BMW-booth were several concept cars were showed. An illustration of this both 'worlds' as one example of improvements:The 1st race cars often drift very fast in curves on high speeds. To provide the care more downforce and grip they introduced top wing.Early examples of the Tudor Oysterdate had the Valjoux 7733 chronograph movement (18.000 BPM) watches . To increase the accuracy Tudor replaced this movement by a movement which has a frequency higher: a manually wound Valjoux 234 (21.600 BPM). This is only some of the improvement. Additionally, it upgraded the chronograph mechanism at a cam principle to some more sophisticated column wheel principle that has a clutch.Famous cars, high pricesThe guide leads us further. We stop a moment and then he shows us a famous 'Marlboro' F1 car which was driven by James Hunt within the circuit of Zandvoort. Exactly like (vintage) replica watches, the 'famous' cars that has a story tend to be more valuable then a regular example. To really make the bridge again: the Rolex Submariner (ref. 6538) worn by Sean Connery in Dr. No is worth a great deal more then an under-the-radar instance of that period.Cheaper AlternativesOnly a lucky few can definitely drive F1 cars. But the guide showed us a cheaper alternative is founded in the early 1950's. In 1947 Cooper Car Company was founded and shortly whenever they created 500cc cars build on motorbike engines. This has to be out-of-the-box creativity!Live ActionWe were invited to visit the pit stop and witnessed the changing of drivers over the Gentlemen Drivers-race. Even as saw are in action , timing is unquestionably an important element and Tudor did a superb job enable visitors understand the significance of timing and replica watches in the realm of race cars.Together with the roaring of a very old 8-cylinder Bugatti compressor we end our tour. We wish to thank Tudor replica watches and Gassan to the wonderful time we with the circuit. And last of all more photos to top if off cheap rolex watches : watches replica breitling watch bentley
