Car watches hold appeal to motoring fans

First published: 02-05-2012

Fans of motoring can show their dedication to the brand not only through the vehicle they drive, but also with the watch they have on their wrist.

For those with a real passion not only for their cars but also to look good, Forbes suggested the next step is to find a timepiece from their favourite car manufacturer that also fits in with their look.

It noted that many of the watches produced by these companies come in very limited edition numbers, which means they are often highly-priced and very much in demand.

The publication noted that some companies will also team up with watch manufacturers, with the Breitling for Bentley range recently proving to be an incredibly popular partnership.

Watches with interesting or unusual designs were a big feature of the recent Baselworld event, with Francis J, editor of, stating recently that the fair was full of timepieces with novel and innovative features.
