A long history ties Baume & Mercier and Bucherer, both companies with strong traditions. Since the 1920s, they have cultivated an excellent relationship and share common values, such as a love of watches, watchmaking and stylish design.
A sporty and elegant watch
The partnership between Baume & Mercier and sports car manufacturer Shelby has inspired a watch designed to serve as a reminder of the legendary American Shelby Cobra Daytona coupé.
Baume & Mercier’s designers were particularly impressed by the aesthetics and unmatched power of the racing car built during the 1960s. The spokes in the wheels were the inspiration for the rotor inside the movement. Made of titanium, it leans on the car’s lightweight aluminium construction. Design elements, such as the racing car’s typical stripes and Cobra logo, are cleverly integrated into the subdials and second hand. The main dial in blue harmonizes perfectly with the black, carbon-look calfskin strap. It has a blue seam and a blue lining, giving the watch additional character.
