i’ve seen may in a milgauss as well.

hammond has an aluminum bezel GMT pepsi, a sub. a seadweller and an explorer 2 polar, as well as a pair or three breitlings.

jezza loves his omega seamaster PO 45mm. he’s also been wearing an IWC big pilot DLC in grand tour.

yes i’m an obsessive dork.

To my eyes that appears to be a white dial Milgauss (PCLs plus jagged second hand).

I think Hammond is wearing the Sea Dweller as there is no cyclops. That is of course unless it's a Sub with the wrong crystal.

They have definitely had great taste in watches over the years! Itís always been fun to watch Top Gear and GT and trying to figure out what theyíre wearing!

I came really close to pulling the trigger on a Top Gun last year thanks to Clarkson. Looks great but I just couldnít deal with how light it was.

Like myself I believe Hammond also has a number of Panerai.

There's definitely a connection between cars and watches. So many WIS are also petrol heads.

I saw an episode where Clarkson returned Hammonds watch that they recovered from the crash and it was still ticking. I canít remember if it was a sea dweller or a sub.

of the three hamster is certainly the collector. i can’t recall seeing him in a panerai, unless it was on one of his various specials i’ve not seen.

but yes, fully agreed re: petrol heads and WIS.

as per the more recent post.

the watch clarkson returned to hammond after his adventure in the electric racecar was a seadweller 4k.

I was actually looking for a photo of Hammond wearing a Panerai. I did find one, an older episode when he's in the studio. Although I definitely remembered him road testing a car at some point while wearing one.

Anyway, look at this absolute gem of a website I've uncovered... http://www.topgeartime.com/

May has had that Milgauss for a while.
It was featured in many Top Gear episodes.
Both have many very tasteful timepieces.

Well I see Iím not the only one pausing the Drive Tribe videos to check out the watches. My wife thinks Iím crazy. Now I have TRF to vouch for me.

Not that sheíll accept that endorsement, but I feel better.

Clarkson is into Omega and IWC.

May has a varied collection that is Rado heavy.

Hamster has moved over to Rolex in the past 5 years as he previously ALWAYS wore Breitling and Tag.
