They are well-known for their passion for motorsports, and have collaborated with many organisations and teams in the motorsports arena around the world. BRM Chronographes is also known for the quality of their timepieces, and this again gels well with us, as precision timekeeping is crucial in a high-octane field like motorsports. I’m sure our MCS and MSBK champions will be excited to receive the timepieces thanks to this partnership with BRM Chronographes for the next 3 years,” said SIC Chief Executive Officer Dato’ Razlan Razali.

BRM Chronographes – founded in 2002, is inspired by motorsports, driven by craftsmanship and engineered for exclusivity. BRM seeks to present outstanding pieces every year which mirror the universe of their owner, preferring the imperfection of crude brushing and polishing reminiscent of the finish on sports cars and bike parts to over-polished and over-angled stereotypes.
