Frequently Asked Questions

Racing watches are built specifically to accommodate the needs of an automotive race. The most important features are a chronometer and a tachymeter bezel. The chronograph function acts as a stopwatch, with two or three buttons that can be used to operate the second hand. The tachymeter bezel is designed to help drivers with speed calculations.

The history of racing and watches can be traced all the way back to 1902, although the inspiration for racing watches might be traced back even further to the 1894 Competitions for Horseless Carriages race. This race infamously had many issues with getting accurate readings on the track times. In 1902, when the first Daytona race took place, driver Sir Malcolm Campbell broke several land speed records wearing his Rolex. This would later lead to the creation of the Rolex Daytona, and racing and watches would be associated from that point forward.

There are many great racing watch options, but two of the most classic and revered are the Rolex Daytona and the TAG Heuer Monaco. These iconic watches have a great design and a timeless style.
