Jaguar is celebrating the rebirth of the legendary E-Type sportscar with a series of limited edition watches made by Bremont Watch Company. There will be only six watches made, one for each of the cars, offered to customers of the six new Lightweight E-types .
“The Lightweight E-type project is so special that we thought we really needed to create something which complemented the cars and, since most classic enthusiasts also tend to be horophiles, a wristwatch seemed to be the answer,” says Jaguar’s director of design, Ian Callum.
Drawing inspiration directly from the car, this watch contains a small piece of history, the central band of the white gold case is made from aluminum remaining from construction of the new Lightweight body panels.
The 43mm watch features a black dial based, while the chassis number of the relevant car is printed at the six o’clock position. Both the watch and the car will debut at the Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance on August 14. No word on price, TBA.
