SevenFriday P3C/02L Racer III Watch Review

Jewellery & Watch News

Ignited by the high-speed excitement and tyre to track action of motorsport, the SevenFriday P3C/02L Racer III watch is the Swiss brand’s latest release that once again breaks the boundaries of traditional watch manufacture. It’s distinctive automotive inspired design features black leather, a rubber animation ring, and powerful bursts of red, all embraced by the iconic SevenFriday square case and layered dial.

Another wrist victory for SevenFriday, the P3C/02L Racer III follows in the footsteps of the legendary P3 and P3B models. Since it’s release, the P-Series has captured the attention of adrenaline chasers everywhere with their impressive visuals and complicated mechanics that provide a distinctly masculine yet extraordinary finish on the wrist. The SevenFriday P3C/02L Racer III takes things one step further with a complex aesthetic that tributes the same excitement and adrenaline rush we feel when we watch race cars and motorbikes zoom around the track. It is also the first SevenFriday watch to feature a 100m water resistant case.

While purposely designed to be worn by riders on the open road, there’s no denying the SevenFriday P3C/02L Racer III watch would make a talking-point timepiece for any occasion. It’s 47.6mm by 47mm case is engineered from polished 316L stainless steel that has been entirely treated with black PVD and dual finished by polishing and sandblasting. The case back is kept closed and polished while the animation ring in black EPDM (a type of synthetic rubber) is stylishly detailed with a grid pattern on the left and right sides, a decoration that reminds us a lot of tyre tracks.

As expected of any SevenFriday watch, the P3C/02L Racer III boasts a complex 4-layered dial. The main external plate is engineered from sunray brushed gun metal with angled round openings and 4 deep stamped circles. At 7 o’clock you can see part of the movement balance wheel through a skeletonised opening and around the circumference there are 3 applied polished indexes at 12, 4 and 8 o’clock filled with white luminous coating. Powering the hours, minutes, off centred small seconds and 24 hour hand is the automatic winding Miyota 82S7 calibre with a power reserve of 40 hours.

The SevenFriday P3C/02L Racer III continues to impress with K1 hardened mineral glass and a screwed-in crown system to assist in its 100 metre water resistant rating. The black leather strap with bold red lining and red stitch detailing induces the world of two wheeled motor sport that inspires it and comes completed with a matching black PVD coated stainless steel pin buckle. As always, the timepiece can be used in connection with the special SevenFriday app thanks to an NFC chip embedded in the case back. This feature allows you to register and check the authenticity of your SevenFriday watch.
