The hill- climbing story
The first chapter of Camber Watches is dedicated to Hillclimbing, and in specific to the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, known as a yearly race to the top of Pikes Peak in Colorado (USA). The event once started in 1916 and is still happening nowadays, driven by different types of vehicles.
Even though the race is ‘only’ 20kms long, the amount of turns (156) and the differences in height (a difference of about 3000m) make it a true battle of attrition. Recently, in 2018, the fastest record has been set on less than 8 minutes (7:57 to be precise). The speed in the turns, climbing up the mountain and the short amount of time in which they do this make it a fascinating sport to watch!
It’s not just a watch. It’s an experience.
In hill climbing every tenth of a second counts; therefore we decided to create a timepiece with a special chronograph movement which is able to measure time down to one tenth of a second. It’s dial is inspired by the early mechanical stop watches who where used at motor sporting events.
To complete you appearance we designed special vintage steering wheel shaped cufflinks, matching the watch.
