Drivers' watches

Inspired by motor sports, these watches dedicated to the world of car racing are characterised by a sporty look (often related to the use of color codings and specific graphics that can, in some instances, be reminiscent of the indicators on a dashboard), the presence of a chronograph function (making it possible to measure shorter or longer time spans) activated by way of push-buttons large enough that they can be triggered even while wearing gloves, and finally, good legibility in all conditions.
