The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race is one of the greatest challenges of the natural world, an endurance test like no other. A fleet of twelve identical 70-foot ocean racing yachts, battle it out over 40,000 nautical miles during 325 days enduring all the elements.
Normally the domain of seasoned pros, this challenge is taken on by ordinary, everyday people; nurses and taxi drivers rub shoulders with chief executives, vicars mix with housewives, students work alongside bankers, and engineers team up with rugby players.
Having completed a rigorous training course, competitors are equipped with extreme protection clothing from Henri Lloyd to commence the race of their lives, and we are proud to provide the watches they rely upon during their arduous adventure.
Built around proven shock and water-proofing systems, the Clipper Race UTC watch features unique dial graphics that provide a subtle nod to its ocean-going pedigree - the indexes around the left-hand (port) half of the dial are red, whilst those on the right (starboard) half are green.
The independently-adjustable red-tipped UTC hand is used to tell the time in a second time zone using the 24hour markers engraved into the outer bezel, whilst the inner rotating timing bezel is operated via the upper crown located at 2H.
The letters UTC on the dial stand for Universal Time Coordinated - the time standard used by race crews and officials as they navigate their way around the globe.
Also included in the box is an additional black cotton duck canvas strap with unique red stitching that echoes the red in the Clipper Race logo and a watchmakers screwdriver to change straps quickly and easily by removing the solid steel strap bars.
This strap is unique to the Clipper Race UTC model and fades beautifully with exposure to the elements to give it a well-travelled fingerprint.
Identical to the watches worn during the race by the yacht skippers and crew, each watch bears its individual serial number on the caseback.
