What driving timepiece do you normally use?



I'm thinking of one of these. So far I only managed to find them from a European Ebay seller tho.

What motor sport inspired time piece do you wear?!

+1. Who cares if you're driving or sitting down at the table having lunch, just wear your watch and call it a day. These threads are becoming ridiculous.
