We were delighted to be invited to attend the classic car launch at Porsche Glasgow last week. As one of only a few selected Porsche dealerships in the UK they will now include a collection of beautifully prepared previously enjoyed cars up to 15 years old.
To announce this new feature to their customers the dealership held a spectacular event showing a collection of historic racing cars and other classic Porsches.
Unknown to me and no doubt many of the guests we were to be treated to a Q&A session with the legendary racing driver Derek Bell MBE.
Derek Bell needs no introduction, however for those of our readers who may now follow motorsport Derek is a multiple winner of the Le Mans 24 hour race, Daytona 24 and the world sportscar championship.
Included in the cars on show was Derek’s own Porsche Carrera GTS and a racing Porsche Carrera GT driven by another motorsport legend Walter Rohrl.
To compliment the beautiful cars EWC had a selection of 30 watches for the guests to view and try on which kept us very busy all evening.
In the attached photos you will see Derek kindly spent some time with EWC viewing our watches and chatting about his own watch collection. His favourite watch was our Zenith El Primero Chronometer. Derek loved the combination of rose gold and the brown leather along with the intricate dial.
Our thanks to Paul and his team at the dealership for making EWC so welcome.
