Yep (the 24 hours of LeMans is part of the WEC, BTW). AFAIK, Rolex gives out Cosmos to the winners of all major FIA series.
I believe the FIA has an awards banquet each year where they are presented, right in your backyard.

Not really, but maybe it's interesting for some what's on the market. If I am correct we have only 3 watches at the market for the Moment. One Le Mans and two Daytona Winners Watches.

If someone knowes more, please post them, thank you.

In the Video, there is Vic Elford with a Daytona Winners Watch, must be in the late 60s, Porsche 908 etc., so since how long, from when Rolex is doing the Winners Watches?
