I wasn’t convinced yet, that the Sherpa Graph Mk1a earns the name “Stirling Moss”. We have seen both in ads and on one pic in the “Saturn” magazine, but never in action.
I just found these amazing pics of the “Zeltweg Flugplatzrennen” racing event in Austria, September 1960. Moss is wearing a Sherpa Graph in this race! Read more on my blog entry at enicar101.com and let discuss it here.

AFAIK from general reading, his watch of choice was a Chopard rattrapante. Wrist watches with split action were, and still are, rare and expensive.

He is famous for inventing his own strap. Racing cars was a rather filthy occupation back then and Moss found it difficult to keep his leather straps clean. A full metal bracelet was not a good idea what with the possibility of fire so he had made a special bracelet like this:
