Racing pilot watches paying homage to some of the historic circuits that initiated the world of automotive competition. This racing pilot watch is named in tribute to the Autodrome de Linas-Montlhéry, located 30 km from Paris. The circuit, opened in 1924, hosted the French Grand Prix in 1925 organized by the Automobile Club de France (where the driver Antonio Ascari tragically passed away), and subsequently in 1927 and from 1931 to 1937. Between 1925 and the beginning of World War II, 86% of speed records were achieved at Linas-Montlhéry.

The watch dial and strap thread are "Bleu de France" blue in homage to racing cars such as Bugatti, Talbot-Lago, Delage, Amilcar, Delahaye, or Lorraine-Dietrich.
