Baume & Mercier

Revolution (Hong Kong) - - SIHH 2017 - TEXT BY MELISSA LIM

Baume & Mercier con­tin­ues to grow its Shelby Co­bra line with the ad­di­tion of the Clifton Club Shelby Co­bra watch col­lec­tion, with each one pay­ing homage to the iconic Amer­i­can car, but this time, in­stead of Car­roll Shelby, the spot­light was shone on the work of de­signer Peter Brock. The cu­ri­ous dial is split down the mid­dle into two col­ors; white on the left and blue on the right, al­low­ing the red sec­onds hand to pop. The 196 MPH in­scrip­tion on the sec­onds hands pays trib­ute to the speed at which Day­tona CSX2299 driv­ers Bon­durant and Gur­ney beat the world record at the Le Mans race in 1964. The 44mm case com­bines both stain­less steel and matte ti­ta­nium, and the chrono­graph push but­tons take in­spi­ra­tion from race car ped­als.
