the year was 1964 and the Shelby Day­tona Coupe had be­come the first Amer­i­can car to emerge vic­to­ri­ous at a Le Mans 24 Hours race. Over 50 years later, Day­tona Coupe artist Peter Brock – who had de­signed the his­tory-set­ting Day­tona’s aero­dy­namic body­work – puts pen to pa­per along­side Baume & Mercier man­u­fac­ture’s de­sign di­rec­tor Alexan­dre Peraldi to birth the Clifton Club Shelby Co­bra Lim­ited Edi­tion.

This tribute time­piece is equipped with a fly­back chrono­graph (RM33,000), and is lim­ited to 196 pieces — the top speed in miles per hour achieved by the Day­tona Coupe on the Mul­sanne straight of Le Mans.

Aes­thetic tributes to the Shelby Day­tona Co­bra in­clude a bi­coloured dial to match the car’s tail, an os­cil­lat­ing ro­tor copied right off the wheel, chrono­graph push­ers in­spired by ped­als and the iconic Co­bra logo hang­ing off the red chrono­graph sec­onds hand. www.baume- et- mercier.com ≠
