Panerai Watches At MotoGP Motorcycle Race

I've probably never seen more replica U-Boat watches uk watches in a single place than at the MotoGP race at the Laguna Seca raceway in Monterey, CA recently (a bit more coverage on that event here). Panerai and MotoGP have been working together for about 10 years I believe, and the connection between the two is profound. You'll find mostly Panerai and U-Boat watches on the staff of MotoGP, as well as fans from all walks of life. The fans in particular love all the limited edition Franck Muller watches (of which there have been many). Below you'll find three such watches. One is a limited edition Franck Muller for MotoGP as a whole, then you'll find the Panerai Nicky Hayden 2010 limited edition watch (which I wrote about more here). Last you'll find my favorite, a Valjoux 7750 mechanical chronograph based replica panerai watches uk watch that is killer. Really nicely done in style and finish. Stock marketing images of the watch don't do it justice all all. This is the best timepiece for watch enthusiasts who want to celebrate Panerai's status as the official timekeeper of the popular motorcycle race series. Plus, the mechanical limited edition http://www.speedroc.com/replica-franck-muller-watches.html model isn't that much, costing around $1,800 I believe. Please note and excuse the "red tint" on the sapphire crystals of the watches. There was something reflecting on the crystals when I was taking images. The crystals are not actually red in color. To get really involved in the festivity and pageantry of the day, I go to the 2010 MotoGP race at Laguna Seca to see what the fuss was all about. Who are these fans, what goes on here, and how much is Panerai really a part of it. The reason this is a good question, is because countless brands will sponsor events in name only. They have no real involvement with the culture or practice of the event. Panerai is a bit part of MotoGP, and if you ask MotoGP fans what watch is associated with the event - they will likely glance at their wrists and tell you. Plus, MotoGP fans seem to be serious watch lovers - I spotted a number of good looking sport watches among the mechanically minded crowd. In addition to being a part of MotoGP, Panerai is a sponsor of American racer Nicky Hayden. Riding for Ducati, Nicky Hayden is a nice Kentucky boy with a serious fan following. Check out the images here of him prepping for the race. Today he was sporting a sort of mohawk - just the kind of guy he it. The Nicky Hayden limited edition watch was quite popular on this day.
