Ateliers deMonaco lent its support to the second edition of the Top Cars Rally held in Italy on September 30 2015. Launched in 2014 by Steve Domenioz, the Top Cars Rally is a friendly sports car event created by an enthusiast for enthusiasts of fast cars. Always fascinated by luxury racing cars, Steve Domenioz and his wife decided to create the event and share their passion.

This year's rally started in the port of Gênes on Wednesday 30th. After taking the ferry to Olbia in Sardinia participants drove to Porto Cervo and spent three fun days there. During the rally, the racers had the opportunity to try out their talents at the Autodromo "Franco Di Suni" Mores.

Other activities included a gala organized by Ateliers deMonaco and the last day was highlighted by a yacht trip along the costa Smeralda to the island of Maddalena.

The atmosphere throughout the rally was relaxed and friendly; just a small group of people sharing the same interests in classic cars. The fleet included a Ferrari 599 GTB, Ferrari 458, Ferrari 599 GTO, Audi R8, Mercedes GT and many more.

As the official partner of the event, Ateliers deMonaco created a unique edition of the Admiral Flyback Chronograph, limited to just 8 pieces in white gold and 8 pieces in rose gold. It was made specifically for the Top Cars Rally 2015.

The watch features a patented manufacture flyback chronograph, which measures a succession of elapsed times, and eliminates many repetitive operations. On ordinary chronographs, the button must be pressed three times in succession to measure successive intervals: once to stop the chronograph, once to reset it to zero, and once to start again. With the flyback function, pressing the flyback button once stops timing the first interval and resets the hand to zero. The chronograph hand starts again the instant the button is released.

The event was a tremendous success and all participants were delighted to be invited on December 14 to visit the Ateliers deMonaco Manufacture in Plan-les-Ouates, Switzerland. Founded in 2008 Ateliers deMonaco is on a mission to enable the next generation of  watchmakers to create timepieces of exceptional quality, incorporating the latest innovations and the rarest, most robust materials so as to go far beyond what is considered possible.
