Automatic watch for enthusiasts

When it comes to the most incredible supercars on the market today, time is of the essence … especially with approved super watches.

They grew up virtually together: cars and watches. Cars were invented in the early 20’s and were mainly usedM The first continuously produced wristwatch from Cartier in 1904 came at the same time. Both fields were driven by a desire for precision and perfection and both provided advanced mechanics and gorgeous looks that transformed a new lifestyle.

A century later, the two worlds remain inextricably linked – but now technology, innovation, and vision are much more in tune. Over the decades, watch brands and car brands have aligned themselves with each other in recognition of their common passions and goals. From the mid to late 20th century, top watch brands were sponsoring races, mapping relationships with drivers and brands, and in the turn of the new millennium these relationships created shared ideas, shared design principles, and even shared materials.

Today, as Hypercars take the world by storm, certain watch brands are gaining momentum – enhancing their mechanics and aesthetics in partnership that enables car lovers to put their passion into the wrists in the shape of a Hyper Clock that no one could have ever dreamed of before. .
