26 Oct, 2017 · Magazine A new addition to the Bucherer BLUE EDITIONS collection
Bucherer is proud to unveil the 16th model in the Bucherer BLUE EDITIONS collection: the Baume & Mercier Clifton Club Shelby Cobra BLUE EDITION. This timepiece is a homage to the legendary Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupé racing car and is limited to 100 watches.
Baume & Mercier and Bucherer share a long history. Since the 1920s, the two companies have maintained an excellent relationship based on common values such as a love of watches, watchmaking and stylish design. Baume & Mercier has created another model for the Bucherer BLUE EDITIONS, something that the two traditional companies are especially proud of. The partnership between Baume & Mercier and sports-car manufacturer Carroll Shelby inspired the idea for a watch reminiscent of the Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupé. Built in the 1960s, this racing car was truly beautiful in its design and housed an engine that generated incredible power. The watch’s rotor is inspired by the spokes of the car’s wheels. Design elements such as the trademark Shelby Cobra stripes and the Cobra logo have been cleverly integrated into the subdials and the seconds hand. The blue main dial is perfectly complemented by the black carbon-look calfskin strap.
