The exclusive timepiece made especially for the Brazilian champion is in keeping with the Royal Oak Offshore Rubens Barrichello collection, conveying its key qualities. The unique design draws on the world of motor racing to create a subtle blend of F1 finesse and fine watchmaking, featuring a bezel adorned with eight screws reminiscent of engine screws, a bezel joint in the image of a ventilated disc brake, strap attachments in the shape of pedals, a crown akin to a gear cog and pushpieces in the form of an air extractor.
Brazilian champion Rubens Barrichello has been competing successfully on Formula One race tracks since 1993. Ranked five times among the top five in the world championship, including two runner-up titles in 2002 and 2004, 61 podium finishes, 510 points, nine wins and 13 pole positions, the Brazilian champion has had a remarkable career. His latest achievement is to break the record for the most F1 Grand Prix entries, a title held for the past 14 years by Riccardo Patrese, with 256 races. The Istanbul Grand prix, on May 11th, will mark the 257th start of Rubens Barrichello’s career.
Taking the design cues from Montoya such as the hexagonal screws on the bezel, the non numerical markets and the rectangular chronograph push buttons as well as the distinctive crown - the Barrichello has an assured following for those who missed the limited edition Montoya.
