  3. Carbon GT

    Presenting The Racing Infused Carbon GT Timepiece - Racing At It's Rawest

    We have designed something special here for our fellow racing and car enthusiasts. We love releasing new racing inspired watches so for this Carbon GT model we have stepped it up a notch with an all carbon fibre dial and bezel timepiece! Yes you read right it even has a carbon fibre bezel! We used real carbon for the dial and bezel of this black edition which makes it a one of a kind.

    The motor running this collection is a highly reliable Seiko VK63 meca-quartz which is an awesome quartz movement that has the great touch of the second hand swooping smoothly like an automatic movement as opposed to ticking second by second like a standard quartz. 

    The Carbon GT has a 43mm all stainless steel case which is black coated and features a dial of 3 sub dials being second, minute and hour ticking sub dials. We decided that orange looks best with the black and carbon so we used an orange second hand and second hands on the sub dials. Protecting the this unique dial is the strongest crystal being sapphire crystal - highly scratch and scrape proof. We added a tachymetre to the outer dial and some semi skeleton minute and hour hands.
    The caseback features a chequered engraving with the crown as engraved with our M logo and have allowed our backers to take this watch 100 metres under water by making it water resistant of 100m. We really have pulled out all the posts on this new Carbon GT watch, this is the watch you need for your next track visit!

    Marchand Watches

    Adamir Marchand was a Swiss watch/clock maker and inventor in the early 1900s for the prestige watch brand Benrus. His Great Grandson, Daniel started the Marchand brand to share his Swiss heritage and passion/experience with motor racing to bring to life the UK's newest motoring watch brand. Adamir Marchand Below is just one of Adamir's inventions from 1949 which is his design of a calendar timepiece which was later patented by him in 1952. It's just awesomely inspirational for us to read back on the work of Adamir and start our new brand under his name in his honour. Having competed and worked in Motorsport for several years in his late teens to early 20’s Daniel had been surrounded by exotic cars, which naturally brought Daniel into the watch world of car enthusiasts. Being surrounded daily by cars and watches of the most exotic categories the passion for watches was truly established and now alive. When his racing years came to an end Daniel promised himself that he would continue to have an involvement in Motorsport through offering products or services that that would bring great pleasure in sharing with others, now he's fortunate enough for this to be in the form of Motorsport watches. The day one vision has been to establish an affordable watch brand which infuses Motorsport within the watch designs. Offering premium watches with a racing essence and at an affordable price is the core of their collections. The design motive is to produce collections that can be worn at the track, at home or in professional life. The current watch and accessory collection is increasing with new products being introduced to satisfy any discerning watch and motorsport enthusiast. With Brand Ambassadors involved within a wide arena of motorsport activities, the watch collection truly is building a heritage that will eventually become a name to sit alongside some of the more expensive rival brands.

  5. Author: Brian Laban (2016) Publisher: Crowood Press Hardback, 12 Chapters, 208 pages Retail Price: £25.00 A very well laid out book detailing the history of the XK range of Jaguars with many black & white and colour photographs, illustrations and supporting data. The Author has successfully covered the range of XKs from the inception in 1948 to the E-Type, with each chapter chronologically detailing the marque and history of the manufacturer’s technological evolution within that era. The Jaguar XK was incredibly successful in racing and this has been covered in detail with particular mention to the 24 Hours of Le Mans race when Jaguar dominated the Motorsport world in the 1950’s. The ‘Racing Cousins’ such as the Lightweight E-Types and the Lister Knobbly have also been covered with sufficient detail without going too in-depth to become a specialist publication of each variation. There are plenty of books available about each of the specialist racing Jaguars to satisfy the enquiring reader’s curiosity. At the end of each chapter is a summary of the specifications of each model from that particular era with technical and performance information. Overall, this book delivers a definitive overview of the variety of XK’s produced over a 22-year span. CLICK LINK TO BUY THIS BOOK
  6. TOM BARNARD - 'I GATHERED NO MOSS' Tom Barnard, a local author, racing driver, engineer, boat builder, track designer, car designer along with a string of other accomplishments. His book 'I gathered no moss', an autobiography detailing his fascinating life story. His book starts with the advent of WW1 when his father returned from the war and purchased Bluepool at Furzebrooke. He then set about landscaping the grounds with rare plants and trees. Soon enough, tourists started flocking to this wonderful place of tranquillity. WW2 then disrupted proceedings and Tom writes about the Army taking over the land and buildings, overhead dogfights and near misses from exploding bombs. After the war, he schooled at Eton and entered into a social life in London. Around this time, he got interested in Engineering but also in Motor Racing. This was the golden era for racing and he was fortunate enough to compete in races with the likes of Mike Hawthorn, Stirling Moss and driving cars for Colin Chapman at Lotus. A few years later on, he decided to adapt his engineering business to produce small scale racing cars that children (or an adult) could race on any track, The Barnard Formula Six. The car could be adapted so that it was safe for any youngster to drive at a very early age and the controls were in reach of a supervising adult. His early childhood, first in South Africa and then in South Dorset was suddenly interrupted by World War Two. The Barnards were evicted from their house, which became a military hospital, and bombs soon became part of daily life. After schooling near Swanage, and then at Eton, Tom was called up for National Service in the Army. He then spent sixteen years in his chosen profession of engineering but managed, during this time, to fit in seven years as a racing driver, mostly with Lotus. His invention of the Barnard Formula Six miniature racing car earned him enormous publicity in the UK and abroad with over four hundred models sold. This was followed by boat building, classic car restoration and then four years helping to develop Silverstone Circuit. His success with race track designing led to projects in a dozen countries spread over a further twelve years. Finally, with a quiet life in mind, he began a study of his family history and the writing of his book. The fourteen chapters confirm that the title is fully justified. He has been throughout his life, a true rolling stone. CLICK LINK TO BUY THIS BOOK Join the Barnard Formula Six Facebook Page
  7. Written by Peter Lightfoot - A brand new Book listing the history of Jaguars' people that made the car and shaped the future of the motor industry A unique perspective of the Jaguar car company over the decades and the people that made the company and motoring history. So many superbly illustrated and technically explicit books have been written about Jaguar cars over the long and successful existence of the marque, but not many have been written about ‘the people’ that created and shaped the future of the Jaguar brand. This book is dedicated to the bosses and employees that made the Jaguar brand a truly legendary car brand, recognised and respected worldwide, both on the roads and the race tracks. This book is available in E-Book format as well as Printed Softback Book format (available shortly)
