The BRM P207 was a Formula One racing car, designed by Len Terry and manufactured by British Racing Motors, which raced in the 1977 Formula One season. Rotary watches famously sponsored this powerful racing car during its debut and finale year of 1977.

Perfect for recording time with great accuracy the quartz chronograph is the ideal watch for the sophisticated sportsman. Rotary's new generation chronograph has an independent sweep second hand: can be started, stopped, and returned to zero, featuring a tachymeter outer dial for rapid calculations of acceleration or distance.
