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.
Marco has been racing for almost a decade now , and it is no surprise that B.R.M. watches decided to honor the young racer by releasing the timepiece in his honor.

The hour and minute markers are ultra light blue in color with a technical fabric band stitched to match the iconic Andretti Racing Team Dallara DW12 Colors. Water resistance is up to 50 m and the price of this racing beauty is USD 14,750. Limited edition of only 30 pieces worldwide.
