Automotive Horology: A Compendium of 10 Iconic Cars & Watches
Wheels and gears, second hands and tach needles, power trains and power reserves. Men have always been fascinated by time, speed, accuracy and power — and the beautiful combination of high-end timepieces and exotic roadgoing automobiles captures these obsessions appropriately. Hopefully, you never see a man driving an automotive icon while wearing a Franklin Mint gold nugget watch on his wrist. There’s a reason for that. Anyone who appreciates fine design and great engineering in his cars also tends to look for the same from his timepieces. And whether the watch of choice is used to measure lap splits or to simply echo the same kind of quality and heritage as a man’s car, you can be assured that careful time was taken to select both. We matched up some of the best in timekeeping and automobilia in Gear Patrol style.
Our compendium continues on the next page.
