He did so in style, as the painfully cool replica Omega 3576.50 watch you see to the right and below belonged to him.Neumayer's Rollie is not the ubiquitous Submariner, Day-Date, or even Daytona.In fact his chronograph pre-dates all three of these iconic models, if just by a few months for the Sub and Day-Date.This pre-Daytona chrono is reference 6034 and it is a rather rare reference, having only been made for a few years in the 1950s.This particular ref 6034 dates to 1953, the very same year its owner became the fastest man alive.It is unknown whether or not Neumayer was wearing this Rolex during his record setting run, if he bought it as a celebration for becoming the fastest man alive, or if it is purely coincidental that it dates to the same year.
Regardless, this beautiful Rolex chronograph is an unbelievably cool replica Omega 95 1272.30v, and one that is completely original.The dial on this watch, as Charles Tearle, director at Antiquorum, mentions below is completely untouched and as sharp as can be.This watch is slated to sell later this week for $25,000 to $35,000 via Antiquorum. on this incredibly rare and cool vintage Rolex chronograph, the Reference 6034 owned by legendary hot rodder LeRoy Neumayer.Watch the video below to get a better look at this incredible, original sport timepiece.BTW, the only other famous person to own the Reference 6034 Rolex? You guessed it, Eric Clapton.
The perfect accessory next to goggles and driving gloves for the car? Sure. Like I said about the previous models, these are replica Tissot T64.1.385.53 Ladie's watch that have a character that actually fits with that thing they are said to be in honor of. The watch dial, with its large applied Arabic numerals and dagger hands also has a logo of the UK Healey Challenge race.Inside the watch is a Swiss Valjoux 7750 automatic with the dated moved to the lower center of the dial. The steel version has a notice a lot of Formula 1 themed limited edition watches in the Royal Oak Offshore collection.
