M1-Woodward Avenue is a highway notably referred to as Detroit's Main Street and follows the route of the old Saginaw Trail that linked Detroit with Pontiac, and at the time, Flint and Saginaw. 

Woodward Avenue was created after a devastating fire in 1805 and is one of five principal avenues in Detroit devised by Augustus B. Woodward as part of a street plan intended to make Detroit the Paris of the West, by emulating it’s wide avenues.

Woodward Avenue was the location of the first mile of concrete roadway in the entire country and in 1970, bore the M1 designation. Woodward Avenue is synonymous with cruising. As early as 1848, carriage drivers would race up and down Woodward Avenue after the roadway was converted from logs to planks.

Le Mans No 20 Porsche, Too.

My first real timepiece and went through a small learning curve with the intricacies of owning this beautiful machine. Patrick helped me through like a gentleman and a professional. I look so forward to owning another one of their collection someday soon. The watch in and of itself is remarkable, and the packaging it arrived in was a splendid touch. Thank you both!

Le Mans No 20 Porsche

This watch is an amazing unique time piece. It’s just what I was looking for after buying a Porsche. I saw it in a magazine and went to this website and read reviews. I then called the owner Patrick. He was very accommodating on the phone and we had a great conversation about how he started the company. It’s easy to understand his passion for precision watch making. I purchased the watch. It arrived the next day. I called Patrick again to thank him and he was extremely accommodating again, going over the workings of the watch. The watch works great and looks so striking on my wrist!! The design, Swiss movement and solid housing is really impressive. It is a great addition to my collection. Thank you Patrick for a beautiful time piece!! I highly recommend this company if you are looking for a great watch for your collection. Thank you, Mark J.
