Abarth Gets Clocked – Introducing the BRM V12-T-44 Chronograph
French watchmaker BRM is not a newcomer to the world of motorsports. Many people may associate this name with the legendary British Racing Motors. However, BRM actually stands for Bernard Richards Manufacturer, after the man who has been making mechanical watches inspired by racing and automotive themes for over 25 years. The company’s latest endeavor, done on behalf of Abarth, has been dubbed the BRM V12-T-44 Chronograph.
Sporting a 44mm black titanium case, this limited edition timepiece takes many accents from the Italian car company including a black Nomex strap featuring red stitching to resemble the Abarth fascia along with their scorpion logo placed on the watch-face and chrome hands. BRM will only be producing 49 examples, keeping in line with their small production runs of about 2,000 watches total per year. Each BRM V12-T-44 Chronograph will be individually numbered and is available on the BRM website for €4,900 or roughly $7,333.
