This is a video we keep coming back to. It’s one of our most cinematic and visually beautiful videos to date, and it captures the skipper of Wild Oats XI, Mark Richards, in the lead up to the 2016 Sydney Hobart Yacht Race. It finds him in a reflective, but taut frame of mind – this was hardly a casual, breezy time for a chit chat, but Mark was focused and minced no words addressing questions about the art of competitive sailing and his love for a brand that’s been on his wrist for much of the journey; both as a tool watch to be relied on, but also to remind him of his incredible winning streak.
