All expensive dress watches are analog. This came about from watches and clockwork being very expensive items back in the day so wearing one was a show of wealth. Luxury cars are echoing that association.
Luxury cars and everyday cars are getting closer and closer in their refinement.
We checked out some of the exotic cars and found some super time pieces as stock fittings. Here a small list of Cars and the Clocks we love.
Bentley Bentayga SUV Will Feature A Real Self-Winding Tourbillon Clock From Breitling
Bentley plans to do when it starts rolling out the new Bentayga in a few months.
The full-size with its leather and wood-lined cabin, will start at $229,100 in the U.S., but the price can bump with a variety of options, including a Breitling Mulliner Tourbillon clock.
While a final price hasn’t been set, the watch is expected to come in at around 150,000 pounds, or roughly $234,000—which could make it more expensive than the “base” Bentley Bentayga. The maker justifies the price by explaining the clock has “the most complex of watch mechanisms.”
Bentley prides itself on allowing its customers to endlessly customize its vehicles. You even can match the vehicle’s paint to the shade of a favorite shirt, scarf or lipstick.
As for the Breitling, it will only be offered in solid gold—though you will be able to choose between white or rose gold. A customer also will be able to pick from a black ebony or mother-of-pearl face. The clock is completed with eight large diamonds.
Porsche Boxster S Sport
You would be surprised that Rolls-Royce used to advertise the fact that their cars were so quiet that the loudest sound you heard was the clock ticking on the dash.
