The world of racing has forever been directly tied to time, counting down to the millisecond. With a long, rich history in racing, Swiss watch brands have developed precise timing devices, including the chronograph, and partnered with race car drivers over the decades, since auto racing first began.
Timepieces hold a special significance for many drivers, and for New Zealand native Scott Dixon, it’s no different. He’s a 4-time IndyCar Champion and 2-time winner of the Rolex Daytona 24 Hour, among countless other accolades. For him, not only is it all about the function of time, but fashion & style, too. He has always been drawn to Rolex and TAG Heuer watches with their racing ties. Over the years, as he took up flying, he also found love for pilot watch brands like IWC and Breitling.
