First published: 19-06-2009

With the British Formula One Grand Prix fast approaching, Brawn GP has announced that it has signed a contract with a prestigious watch manufacturer from the UK.

Graham-London, a company founded in the 18th century by clockmaker George Graham, will be partnering the team, which has become an iconic brand in itself over the last few weeks, dominating the standings with lead driver Jenson Button racking up the wins.

The wing mirrors of Jenson and teammate Rubens Barrichello's cars will be adorned with the Graham-Martin logo, highlighting the achievements of Mr Graham in the watch industry.

Commenting on the deal, Eric Loth, the chief executive officer and founder of the British Masters - the parent group of Graham-London - said he is "delighted" with the deal.

He continued: "Speed, racing, innovation and technology are all brought to mind from the sport of Formula One and we are delighted to launch our two new Brawn GP special edition watches this weekend, the Silverstone and the Chronofighter, designed with these values in mind."

Jenson Button currently leads the drivers' standings in his Brawn-Mercedes with 61 points, winning six races from seven and opening up a 26 point lead.
