Club Pecqueur Motorists at Retromobile

The recently founded Club Pecqueur Motorists had a lounge reserved for its exclusive use at the BPM Heritage booth at the latest Retromobile fair, which took place at Porte de Versailles from 31 January to 4 February 2024.

The 2024 edition of Retromobile was a resounding success, with over 130,000 enthusiastic attendees (5,000 more than 2023) browsing the aisles of the 48th edition of the Parisian fair for collectible vehicles. There were plenty of cars, of course, along with some unusual utility vehicles, a growing selection of motorcycles (six exhibiting brands), but also boats (a magnificent Riva Super Florida that used to belong to Jean-Paul Belmondo was being auctioned by Artcurial) and even flying machines. To quote one visitor to our lounge, “This year, there are some really incredible things to see!”

Visitor numbers confirm the growing interest in collectible vehicles from an increasingly broad cross-section of the public from every generation.

The Club Pecqueur Motorists’ lounge was at the BPM Heritage booth, where it could be spotted behind a Mini and a Messerschmitt KR200. It became a welcoming spot for Mechanical Arts lovers in the broadest sense, reflecting the variety of visitors to the Paris event. It was also here that we first revealed the new “Tribute” watch collection from Club Pecqueur Motorists.

One of the “Tribute” watches is a homage to legendary motorcyclist Mike Hailwood, which gave us the perfect excuse to show off a wonderful Ducati MHR (Mike Hailwood Replica), itself a tribute to the Ducati 900SS that he rode to victory in the 1978 Isle of Man TT Race. You can read all about this epic race in the Stories section. The motorbike was at the lounge entrance, right next to the display containing the prototype “Tribute to Mike the Bike” watch.
