Engineer’s Hands, Digital Watch And Switch Panel – French GP 1985

hands-watch-switchpanel-france-85signThis Renault Engineer is wearing a Vema digital watch.  It is similar in design to 1980’s Casio and Seiko watches but I’ve been unable to discover anything about it.  If anyone has information please let me know.  Speaking of mid 80’s tech, the switch panel’s function is also a mystery.  The picture below shows its large size.  I can’t read any specifics about the pushbuttons in the original Kodachrome.  He is sitting on the pit wall and it is possible the panel is a method of recording times of other cars.  Again, any info is appreciated.
