Drive Time Deluxe Edition: Watches Inspired by Automobiles, Motorcycles, and Racing

A thoroughly updated and deluxe edition of the first monograph of its kind to explore 120 years of automotive-inspired timepieces.

Drive Time, Sea Time, and Air Time comprise the first horological lifestyle trilogy to survey high-performing timepieces through the lenses of the cars, ships, and planes that inspired them. With curated new watches to reflect ever-more sophisticated time-pieces and horological expertise, this deluxe third edition of Drive Time is a modern, distinctive update to the series.
 Housed in a handsome slipcase, Drive Time Deluxe Edition focuses on the iconic racing chronographs of the mid-twentieth century, such as the Rolex Daytona, Omega Speedmaster, and TAG Heuer Carrera and Monaco, through current timepieces from Chopard Mille Miglia, Breitling by Bentley, Porsche Design, and IWC Mercedes-Benz AMG collections. In celebrating two great twentieth-century inventions—the mass-produced automobile and the wristwatch—Drive Time is perfect for lovers of timepieces, cars, and deluxe style.

"The coolest and best watches ever made for driving, racing and motorcycling." —MAXIM

"There is perhaps no other author who has neither the encyclopedic-like understanding of the long-standing yet ever-evolving intersections and connections between time-telling and fueled motion nor one with his finger so firmly on the pulse of current developments in those same areas." —WATCHIONISTA.COM
