You can experience the heritage of Jaguar racing on your wrist.  Bremont has revealed the new white-dial MKII chronograph.  The British watch company says it was inspired by the Jaguar Lightweight E-type which won the 12 Hours of Sebring GT class in 1963.  That inspiration is very clear with the Jaguar heritage logo above the six o’clock position, and the hour markings in the style of the numerals found on E-type instruments.  The red-stitched strap draws on the racing stripes everyone saw when number 23 crossed the finish line.
