In the field of historic motor racing, Peter Auto is a reference. The events organized by Patrick Peter’s team, in France as well as in Europe, are amongst the most exceptional to participate in. Bringing together the best drivers at the wheel of some of the most beautiful cars in the world, their events are the holy grail for any motor racing enthusiast.
Between tradition and modernity, the Tricompax is a watch inspired by the golden age of motor racing. The three-counter chronograph has been the watch of choice of the greatest legends and most sensational racers in the sport since the 1960s.
Amongst the nods to motorsport: the tachymeter scale bezel designed to measure speeds up to 200 km/h and two colors recalling the intensity of the competition. The seconds hand, the minute counter and its hand are adorned with orange, while the hour register and its hand are yellow.
This chronograph represents the beginning of an important chapter for us. For this watch, we have chosen the Sellita SW510-M, a Swiss hand-wound mechanical movement, perfectly in the spirit of our chronograph. With over 60 hours of power reserve, this complication movement is known for its exemplary quality and reliability.
Once an essential accessory for any racer or team member, stopwatches play an important role in every race weekend, allowing to measure and compare lap times on the track, or special stage times in rallying. Inspired by the design of the Tricompax, this pair of chronographs is perfectly adapted to a sporting use thanks to its "flyback" function. This complication, allowing the reset and the start of a new count simultaneously, is ideal for car racing.
