Nelson Piquet

Limited Edition of 365 pieces


Nelson Piquet

The Nelson Piquet is an award-winning, two-pusher automatic chronograph celebrating the three-time Formula One world champion. This timepiece’s dial and functionality have been specifically designed with racing drivers and motorsport enthusiasts in mind.

Rhodium-plated central hour and minute hands filled with Super-LumiNova are accompanied by highly-reflective, metallised hour indices and small seconds at 9 o’clock.

The central chronograph hand is complemented by a seconds chapter ring, 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock and 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock.

Speed or distance can be calculated using the tachymeter scale engraved on the bezel to monitor racing performance.

The dial is completed by the Louis Moinet logo at 12 o’clock and, of course, Nelson Piquet’s signature at 5 o’clock.

The lower half of the dial features Geneva wave finishing reminiscent of the vertical grill design found on historic racing cars.

The blue and white on the dial conjure up images of the iconic Brabham cars in which Piquet raced between 1978 and 1985 – and in which he won the 1981 and 1983 Formula One drivers’ championship.

The Nelson Piquet case design takes its cues from recent developments in motorsport technology, with the six-screw, stainless steel case incorporating a high-tech, carbon-fibre lower bezel.

Carbon fibre is also used to form the inserts for the chronograph pushers at 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock. To enhance grip, the pushers have been engraved with a chequered motif reminiscent of the iconic Formula One finish-line flag that Piquet took in his 23 F1 grand prix victories.

The pushers take the form of champagne corks for a ‘podium finish’ experience – and in the case of Nelson Piquet that means a lot of bubbly: The Brazilian had 60 podium placings during his 13-year career in Formula One!

Meanwhile, the supple natural rubber strap with stainless steel double folding clasp buckle provides ultimate comfort for the avid motorsport fan.

Turning the Nelson Piquet over, the tinted sapphire crystal display-back reveals beautifully finished plates and bridges as well as a distinctive open-worked, black rhodium-plated, ball bearing-mounted rotor, the design of which echoes that of a high-performance car brake disc.

Around the periphery, a winner’s wreath is engraved – appropriate because, as the accompanying inscription reminds us, Nelson Piquet is a three-time Formula One world champion.

The Nelson Piquet has received a Red Dot design award – one of the world’s most prestigious design industry prizes – and is presented in a deluxe case with black carbon fibre-inspired interior, including a reproduction of a painting of Piquet by renowned motorsport artist Willy Richard.
