Jörg Schauer and Marc Basseng. Sponsorship out of passion.
Marc Basseng and Jörg Schauer know each other for many years. A closer contact occured during a driving training on the Nordschleife/Nürburgring, and that ultimately resulted in a personal sponsorship of Jörg Schauer for Marc.
For Schauer, there are several things that characterize the racing driver Marc Basseng, and particularly in focus are: precision, passion in implementation, while still emitting calmness and a high level of quality. Moreover, the absolute will to deliver a good performance anytime. Everything always fair, yet highly emotionally charged. Marc is also distinguished by his great team spirit. He proves that in many races where he shares the cockpit with one, two or even three (24 H Race) racing colleagues. Winning the FIA GT1 World Championship as team manager AND driver was certainly the highlight in his career so far. Surviving this double burden with permanently good achievements during the race, was a top performance. In the combination of these specific characteristics of Basseng, Jörg Schauer sees great similarities to his watches. Therefore, he finds Marc suitable as a brand ambassador for his flamboyant, characterful watches. Some watches that have emerged in recent years, documented this individuality (Edition 15 Sport, 24 H GMT Countdown etc.).
Both want to intensify the cooperation with the new watch that Jörg Schauer is presenting this year. At the moment, a unique piece is created - the Schauer Analog Reminder GT Sport. This watch will be the model of a watch series that serves very individual and characterful watch collectors. Watch lovers who would like to own an individualized, handmade watch. Impressive in size (46 mm), made of robust materials that are also used in motorsport (titanium/stainless steel) and a new innovative (reminder) function. For characterful winners!
