Bernard Richard's Manufacture has been in to watch making for the past 25 years, designing motor racing themed timepieces. The brand is renowned for its exclusive finishing, setting, assembling and crafting which is done by hand. Their watches are made in Paris, using in house technology and parts.
 
Marco Andretti is an IndyCar race driver for Andretti Autosport. He comes from a legacy of racers, being the third generation kin himself, grandson to iconic Mario Andretti and son to IndyCar legend Michael Andretti. Like father, like son; Marco proved that racing was in his blood. He won eight races in the Barber Formula Dodge Eastern Championship and at a high school age raced in the Star Mazda series in 2005, not to mention the 6 starts he made in the Indy Pro series. In 2006 Marco Andretti became the youngest winner in the Indy Racing League giving him the title of Bombardier Rookie of the Year. 
 
Marco's profile is not limited to the IndyCar fraternity only. It extends beyond it into the world of Formula One and the Le Mans series. In 2006 Marco tested the Honda Racing F1 car in Spain and in spite of the test going as good as Jenson Button's run, he decided to enter F1 only when he had won the Indy 500 series. His stint in the 12 hour endurance race in Sebring got him a position on the podium.
