by John Sealander

Well known French racing driver Stéphane Sarrazin may not drive a French car, but he definitely does wear a French watch.

saint Honoré Paris WatchesStéphane Sarrazin is not only one of the best racing drivers in France; he is one of the best-known drivers in the world. This multiple champion started off his 2012 season with a spectacular podium finish at Sebring, competed in 24 Hours of Le Mans and is scheduled to race in the the upcoming World Endurance Championship. Sarrazin was the LMES champion in 2007, as well as the ILMC world champion in 2010 and 2011. This talented driver is equally adept at winning in disciplines as diverse as Formula One and Rally Driving.

In addition to being a superlative driver, Stéphane Sarrazin is also a serious watch aficionado. He has been a saint Honoré Ambassador since 2011 and this year, he has chosen to wear the boldly masculine new Swiss made saint Honoré Haussman City timepiece.

Like Sarrazin himself, the new Haussman City is sporty, chic and totally unique. The new City design retains the iconic screw down bezel and stylish Tonneau shape that made the original saint Honoré Haussman models so popular with fans of the Paris-based watchmaker. With a more understated, sophisticated look and a slimmer profile, the Haussman City will appeal to today’s contemporary urban man.

You can choose between quartz and automatic mechanical models, which can be equipped with a leather strap, a special rubber/carbon fiber strap, or a handsome stainless steel bracelet.
