It took BRM (Bernard Richards Manufacture) more than two years to reach the impossible goal of creating a chronograph weighing less than 50 grams without sacrificing the reliability required of a BRM timepiece. The first champion to put the BRM MK-44 to the test was French racing driver Emmanuel Collard a member of the Porsche Junioren factory team, who took the extra-light chronograph for a ride in 2011 at the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans. Since then, this incredibly light watch has become the favorite of more than a few top endurance drivers.
