A Unique Story

The Cooper dial is inspired by the characteristic bonnet stripes of the classic Mini Cooper S. The stripes are attributed to the legendary race driver John Cooper (1923-2000), whose official racing colors were a British racing green backdrop with white stripes. Still very popular on both classic and modern Mini Cooper cars, the two stripes are subtly incorporated in the dial as a design reference to the car which it was partly made.

The Organ Donor

The original Mini (Mark I) is by many considered an icon of 1960s British popular Culture. Its space-saving transverse engine front-wheel drive layout influenced car makers all around the world for generations to come. And as a matter of fact, the Mini was awarded the second most influential car of the 20th Century – only surpassed by the Ford Model T.

Presented in August 1959 the Mini was introduced as a small economy car. It wasn’t until 1969 the word "MINI" became a marque in its own right when it replaced the separate "Austin Mini" and "Morris Mini" car model names.

Performance versions of the classic Minis took the name Cooper, after partnership with racing legend and car maker John Cooper. The Mini Cooper and Cooper S were both successful as race and rally cars winning several championships.
