The harmonious design of the handsome Mark VIIIC suggests the elegant synchronicity between driver, machine and moment that occurs now and then in the international endurance racing. It's as phenomenon Stefan knows well and an emotive ingredient in a watch created and produced by a man who has experienced victory at the world's most famous endurance race, the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The spirit of endurance racing and the Le Mans 24 itself is embodied in the automatic chronograph's hour register sub-dial which is engineered to count backwards, "counting down" 24 hours - the duration of this storied long distance competition. The function anchors a colorful dial that combines conventional time and date measurement with stopwatch precision.
Large military-style hour indexes, a date indicator and the chronograph's beveled 5/10 second stopwatch scale are highly visible under a convex anti-glare coated crystal. Luminescent coating on the green figures and skeletonize hands assure easy legibility in any light condition. An engraved "exhibition" caseback offers a view of the timepiece's sophisticated movement.
Crafted by a driver with thousands of endurance racing miles under his belt, the Mark VIIIC brings the romance of racing around the clock together with the art of horology. Produced in a limited edition, the Mark VIIIC, like all Stefan Johansson Växjö watches, speaks the exciting language of time and racing.
