Exacting engineering and stunning design, a watch to honour the world's most beautiful car.
The iconic E‑type is still regularly voted the most beautiful car ever. Back in 1963, Jaguar planned to produce a run of 18, with special lightweight aluminium bodies – but only 12 were made. Over fifty years later, we decided to build the other six.
To commemorate the occasion, we collaborated with Bremont, the English watchmakers, to make six stunning wristwatches – one for each customer.
The Bremont Jaguar bespoke chronometer features a host of E‑type design references. Among them, the black dial is based on the Lightweight E-type’s RPM gauge, and the chamfered hour and minute hands replicate the tachometer needle. The winding crown is engraved with the pattern of the retro Dunlop racing tyres fitted to the lightweights. The strap is made of the same Connolly leather used for the interior trim. And each watch carries both the chassis and engine numbers of the car it’s paired with.
“Taken together, these design details give a visual impression that is at one with the E‑type itself. They simply look absolutely right when worn in the driving seat – almost as if they had been designed alongside the car back in the ‘60s.”
