The online boutique is carrying all of Stefan Johansson Vaxjo's Mark VIII Collection, which is divided into four series inspired by a specific phase or aspect of his illustrious career.
Mark VIII C
Stefan Johansson's memorable victory at the 24 Hours of LaMans inspired the synchronous elegance of the Mark VIII C series. "If there's such a thing as romance in a race car, the Le Mans 24 Hours captures that feeling perfectly. Every lap you are trying to beat your own best, your body and brain are in tune with the car and the track," explains Johansson. One distinct feature of this automatic chronograph is an hour register subdial that is cleverly engineered to tick backwards, "counting down" 24 hours in a nod to the duration of the legendary competition. The function anchors a colorful dial that blends conventional time and date measurement with stopwatch precision.
Large military-style hour indexes, a date indicator and a beveled 5/10 second stopwatch scale are highly visible under a convex anti-glare coated sapphire crystal. Skeletonized hands with Superluminova coated tips also ensure maximum legibility under all conditions.
As one who has had the rare privilege of piloting the legendary Type 156 Ferrari and just about every kind of race car since, Johansson is well placed to create a watch that unites classic and modern racing cues.The Mark VIIID marries a retro-style chronograph with a thoroughly modern accent – a carbon fiber inner ring. Encircled by a chronograph scale in red, the dial also features a skeletonized aperture, offering the wearer and others a peek at the automatic mechanical movement that powers the timepiece.Stainless applied screws and the numbers 15, 30, 45 and 60 replace standard hour markers.
