One way to remember the unveiling of the Shelby 1000 is with this hand crafted timepiece created by Shelby American and David Yurman. These two American companies – one which produces American cars and the other hand crafted timepieces – collaborated and came up with this limited-edition watch. The Shelby Cobra has been hand-finished and added to the multi-layer galvanic dial and even features racing stripes.
The limited-edition timepiece features a 43.5mm stainless steel and rubber case and a Swiss automatic chronograph Valjoux 7753 movement. A tach is engraved on the bezel allowing lap times to be logged in. This timepiece has been inspired by Shelby’s 50-year history and the much anticipated Shelby 1000, their most powerful production Mustang yet.
The rubber wrist band resembles the belly of a cobra snake and like every Shelby vehicle coming out of production, the back of the watch is etched with Carroll Shelby’s signature. These Shelby 1000 timepieces really show David Yurman’s craftsmanship and aesthetically pleasing designs.
While Shelby has a passion for high-performance cars, David Yurman has a passion for fine jewelry, however, these watches will be limited-edition much like the new Shelby. Only 150 stainless steel watches and 150 black PVD versions of the watch will be available at David Yurman stores, select authorized David Yurman Timepiece retailers.
