Over the last four days, Monterey Car Week has displayed hundreds of the most beautiful and rare veterans on events and driving tours along the scenic Pacific coast. Today, the week culminated in the beloved Pebble Beach Concours Elegance, where 200 original cars, as well as some restored to replicate their original status, gathered on the 18 th fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links. Also has a strong presence, Rolex, has been the official timepiece of The Concourse for more than 20 years.
To win the Pebble Beach Concours d' Elegance, which has happened since 1950, cars are considered in many ways, not least maintaining the historical authenticity – from the inside to the outside and under the hood. Throughout the day all cars and prizes will be awarded to the first in the class of each category. Then a spectacular rally is organized where all the winning cars drive to the cabin to receive their trophies. There, the nominees for the Best in Show series, will you learn which single car will win the overall Rolex Best of Show Award. This year The Best of Show winner is a black 1937 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Touring Berlinetta owned by David & Ginny Sydorick.
With Rolex as the presentation sponsor of Pebble Beach Concours d 'Elegance, as well as the Official Timepiece, it makes sense for winners to get Rolex watches. This year, the owner of the car that wins the Best of Show on Concours Elegance will be awarded an almost $ 13,000 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Datejust 41 in 18 carat yellow gold wreath with jubilee bracelet.
Earlier this week, at The Quail, A Motorsports Collection, 235 cars and 6000 people gathered at The Quail Lodge & Golf Club, but only one car was declared Rolex Best of Show at the Rolex Circle of Champions. That car was a 1953 Lancia Aurelia PF200C Spider, owned by Anne Brockinton Lee in Nevada. She was awarded Rolex Steel and Everose Datejust 41. Rolex has been the Official Timepiece for the Quail Event since 2005.
