by Michael Thomas Penate "Like space travel, deep sea diving, and high altitude adventures, the world of watches will always tie itself in with motorsports. It’s a connection that has endured for decades and as long as we have a desire to go faster, we’ll keep seeing these amazing timekeeping instruments emerge for years to come. Today, watch brands continue to fuel this connection while tapping into their archives to develop new releases for hungry watch collectors and racing enthusiasts. Naturally, a good chronograph can’t be beat for a day on the race track. So, let’s look at a few of the coolest models in recent history, both old and new."

That AP is fugly. It's quite far from Genta's Royal Oak... "Worthy of breakneck speeds?" I would rather have a breakneck speed kill me without a watch, behind the wheel of a Ford Scorpio (one of the fugliest cars ever made), rather than in the fanciest of cars while wearing that Hublotesque thing.
