Jack spent most of his time in the Ferrari pits. He was clearly a fan as he spent so much time in the pits that he got to know the Rodriguez brothers, and their parents. The brothers were Ferrari pilots that year.

It was deemed the most dangerous race in the history of sports cars and had killed over 30 people over the course of five years. The race was cancelled in 1955 due to safety concerns. This decision was no doubt reinforced by Le Mans' disaster that same year."

Carrera Design

They used these wristwatches for distance calculations and to synchronize attacks with soldiers on the ground. Many of these chronographs had spiral scales on their artillery-telemeter dials, which made them difficult to read. A new technological invention helped me achieve my goal of a dial with a clean, clear design.
