Richard Mille just rolled out a new timepiece to herald the return of the famed Le Mans Classic race.
The elite bi-annual automotive competition took a hiatus during the last two years of the pandemic, but will make a return in July of 2022. It will also be put on in July of 2023 to mark the centenary of the first race of the Le Mans 24 Hours Circuit. Since 2002, Richard Mille has been the sponsor of an event at the Bugatti Circuit (a smaller course within the main Circuit de la Sarthe track), which sees more than 700 historic racing cars take to the rack with 8,500 others in the club areas. To celebrate the impending return of the sporting event, the watchmaker has created its eighth limited edition model dedicated to Le Mans.
