Drawing on the parallels between Rolex and the pinnacle of motor racing, Rolex Testimonee and three-time FIA Formula 1® Drivers’ World Champion Sir Jackie Stewart says: “Formula 1 is a highly respected global series at the forefront of engineering – it’s a natural fit that Rolex is associated with the sport as the brand develops the highest form of technology that exists in watchmaking. Leaders in their respective fields, Rolex and Formula 1 share levels of excellence that are incredibly rare, making it a perfect partnership.”
