Sorna Jacky Ickx "Easy Rider" Chronograph, New Old Stock circa 1972 Jacky Ickx along with Graham Hill and the other “old timers” of my days of being thrilled at watching real racing not stock Fords or Chevy blocks in a shell or stock cars – these were the nuts of racing that sat literally atop their high octane fuel tanks. Since at that time the quartz revolution had done its damage on the Swiss scene and companies run by families for years went under – commemorative watches of this nature were de rigeur. People wanted them, the price was right, the Heuer type pin lever movement was in abundance for the asking in place of the high prices of just a few years before This watch runs and keeps time but has not been gone over by a watchmaker – you may chose to do this if using it for more than daily wear. So companies that persisted made the SORNA brand to survive and fortunately there are these NOS watches just discovered never sold and are available for great prices. Refer to Item Ickx Red – cost is 275.00 + shipping. Hence the "Easy Rider" chronograph was born..
