Cars are a medium of self expression and freedom, but what if you like to surround yourself with the finest luxuries that the automotive world has to offer. What would be your particular choice of accessory? Well, to address this issue we have compiled a list of top luxurious watches which will go splendidly well with your particular brand of supercars.
1. Hubolt MP-05 La Ferrari
Among other contribution made by the old man Enzo, one car that still stands the test of time, in terms of its sheer striking presence is the Ferrari Enzo. Almost a decade later, Ferrari unveiled its successor, LaFerrari. The machine sports an engine with almost 1,000 horsepower, coupled with a state-of the-art electric motor. Quite inspiring isn’t it? Well Hubolt feels the same way and has designed a wristwatch to match the striking look and the exhilarating feel of the LaFerrari. Many have commented over the years that a Ferrari gives its owner, the best driving experience possible, whereas looks are and always will be a territory ruled by Lamborghinis. Well with the release of this watch and the modestly designed Huracan, it looks like the king is about to be dethroned.
2. Parmigiani Fleurier Bugatti Super Sport
Swiss timepiece maker Parmigiani Fleurier has produced a magnificent watch that successfully compliments its inspiration, the Bugatti Super Sport. The watch Features a new Parmigiani caliber PF 372 movement. The watch is designed with a curved tear drop shaped lug, which is finished in black and sparks of orange. The timepiece comes with a partial carbon fiber dial and offers a 10-day power reserve and 10-meters of water resistance. The designers have flipped the mechanical components of the watch onto a vertical axis. This allows drivers to keep focus on the dial. The task of configuring the dial’s direction against the watch’s movement makes it an impressive feat of engineering. Parmigiani developed a 90-degree time setting system and integrated a system of double pinions with bevel gearing. The watch is constructed from 337 different pieces. An innovation like this can only be paralleled by that of the Bugatti Super Sport. The production of this timepiece is limited to only 30 units which will be set in an 18k white gold case.

3. Breitling Bentley Mulliner Tourbillion
Bentley Mulliner Tourbillon, which costs $175,000, is Breitling’s homage to the iconic carmaker. The watch comes with a pointer-type date display and a distinct 30-second chronograph. The Tourbillion also features a hand-wound chronograph movement. The units of this watch can be customized according to the requirements of the customers. The company offers a variety of parts and pieces for the customers to choose from.
4. Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX2 Aston Martin
Luxury watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre has teamed up with the automaker Aston Martin to produce a chronograph, which will have a personal built-in transponder that can lock and unlock the doors of the Aston Martin DBS. It is called the AMVOX2 transponder and all the functions of the watch are activated by pressing the crystal face. There are no buttons on the watch and even the antenna for the door opener follows the curve of the inner bezel ring. If you want a 007 gadget that unlocks you DBS, then by all means buy this piece of art but remember it costs $37,900 and the Car is sold separately.
5. Graham Mercedes GP Trackmaster
Silverstone Formula One Grand Prix is also responsible for the introduction of the Graham Mercedes GP Trackmaster watch. The timepiece incorporates a G1734, automatic bi-compax chronograph movement and performs 28,800 vibrations/hour. Mercedes GP also features Incabloc shock absorber, power reserve of 48 hours and 27 jewels and a date window is positioned at the 7 o’clock mark. The watch showcases both 30-minutes counter and second’s chronograph. The watch comes with scratch-resistant surface, thanks to domed anti-reflective sapphire crystal glass.
6. Hubolt 500 Aero Bang Morgan
Morgan Motor Company has been in production for a century and on its anniversary, Hublot produced a watch inspired by Morgan’s AeroMax car: the Aero Bang Morgan. The watch was presented by Jean-Claude Biver in Malvern (GB), at Morgan’s headquarters, in presence of Charles Morgan. The first 100 of Hublot’s 500 Aero Bang Morgan timepieces are reserved for AeroMax owners as only 100 hand-made AeroMax cars were built.
The watch showcases a skeleton dial that allows the owner to appreciate the chronograph beneath, which acts as an engine for the watch. This is weird, considering that Morgans has never produced its own engines. The chronograph used is Hublot’s HUB44 SQ automatic chronograph caliber with 252 components. The watch features 27 jewels and the movement features black PVD screws, sandblasted bridges and an oscillating weight made from tungsten carbide with a dimpled surface and a black PVD coating. Not too traditional like the Morgan, don’t you think?
7. TAG Heuer Grand Carrera
The Grand Carrera watch features TAG Heuer’s new Calibre RS movement. TAG Heuer Grand Carrera is not manufactured with a quartz movement. The watch is available in durable stainless steel and elegant two tone gold with steel version. The association between Porsche and TAG Heuer is quite old. So if you would like to have a wide range of products to select from, then this is the luxury brand for you. Many TAG Heuer Carreras have been launched over the years and with a little effort, you might be able to find one that suits you the best or maybe even a bargain.
