Pre-order now to be a part of Glickenhaus' 2021 race campaign!
The relationship between watches and motorsport is as clear as day. Brands such as Heuer, Enicar and Rolex paved the way for this cross-pollination of industries and ever since then, it has gone from strength to strength.
A little closer to home, the new watch brand FORZO (a part of the Geckota Group) have recently shared the news that they’re teaming up with Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus to create a series of limited edition watches to celebrate the passionate car manufacturer’s unique ‘road to Race’.
Not only can you own apart of Glickenhaus' race journey via a new watch, but you can also be apart of it by appearing on the car's livery when it races this year!
Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is a boutique car manufacturer based in the US creating high-end performance vehicles for the road, track and off-road. Much like FORZO, they’re an immensely passionate group of people with their latest challenge in 2021 with their own car: the LMH007.
These watches are now available for pre-order here, but if you like what you see you’ll need to be quick as pre-orders close on the 28th May.
Both chronograph and time/date models have received the Glickenhaus touch; both Jim and James Glickenhaus designed these new watches alongside the FORZO in house design team based in the UK.
The Glickenhaus chronograph is available with pops of colours integrated into the design including the 24 hour subdial with external track marking the start of the race, the inner channel of the hour & minute hand, as well as subtle appearances on the minute track. Every model also sees the stylish Glickenhaus logo appear at the 6 o’clock position.
Likewise, on the automatic version of the watch, similar splashes of colour can be seen throughout the hands as well as on the 24-hour scale to the centre of the dial.
There is a choice of two colours for all four versions of the watch, either Glickenhaus blue as seen in the car manufacturers logo or a vibrant red, the same red that will be seen on the raced 2021 hypercar.
Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus has built a stunning car, the LMH007, from the ground up and engaged some of the top drivers in endurance racing to bolster its bid to become the first American team to win since Ford battled Ferrari in the 1960s.
Anyone ordering these limited-edition watches will benefit from a number of bespoke gifts exclusively for ‘Road to Race’ watch owners, including a unique opportunity to join a WhatsApp group run by Jim and Jesse Glickenhaus personally from the pit wall. It’s the next best thing to joining the team management, with exclusive information and insight. Furthermore, owners of the limited-edition watch will also have their names included on the ‘FORZO’ stickers that will race on the actual cars, with a limited edition digitally signed print of the 007 Hypercar & the watch range.
Team principal Jim/Jesse Glickenhaus said: “This watch symbolises our journey and the passion of all the people who have travelled that road with us. It’s a beautiful piece of art to wear on your wrist, which perfectly captures the spirit of the 1960s: just as our own LMH007 race car is a tribute to that glorious era. Both combine classic looks with the most modern technology, another aspect that the car and the watch have in common.”
FORZO founder Jonathan Quinn added: “We’re delighted to partner with Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, which truly redefines how a team should interact with its fans. We’ve concentrated on designing an authentic watch that perfectly complements the Glickenhaus brand, and we are looking forward to a long association into the future.”
