The 24 hours of Le Mans is the ultimate endurance test of man and machine. A magical place where some of the most illustrious drivers and marques have written their part of car racing history. In 2011 Gabriele Gardel was wearing a Lonville G24 prototype when he crossed the finish line with nearly 300km/h to win his class.
A magical moment for Lonville, and we decided to construct just 24 watches, one for each hour of that famous race. Matthew Humphries, creator of the totally unqiue Morgan Aeromax, has designed the G24.
A unique multi layer dial design with a black vertical ‘straight’ central bridge which is symbolic of the way Gabriele described the Le Mans dark nighty-time circuit.
The 40mm titanium case is PVD treated to a black colour featuring both brushed as well as polished surfaces. Lugs and rotor have hollow spaces to save weight, just like that winning Le Mans car.
The LV2 automatic movement is COSC certified and features an autonomy of 120 hours delivered by two barrels. Exceptional finished levels with perlage, Cotes de Geneve and blue engraving.
