Nice, but for car enthuists, I think a chronograph style would be better.

I think you're on to something. The price point is about right.

Nice watches on that site. The BOSS 302 watches look great but it would be nice if they had metal bands as well.

I liked almost every design on their site, and the prices were not outrageous either.

Hey Jer,

Try talking to Christopher Ward out of London about doing a Shelby watch. They are making some quality Swiss made watches with standard swiss movements at affordable prices. They have some very attractive designs. Not sure if they will work with you but they have done some commissioned work.

The Chronographs look great for around $500 and you can have your CSM number engraved on the back if you wish.

Yup their Chronographs are what I have been eyeing. Not sure if they could do both a quartz and an automatic but that would be cool and give two different price points.

Another company that has been know to do commissioned work is Steinhart Watches. They are also know for there value, quality and affordability. They are a German company that also uses standard ETA Swiss movements and Swiss manufacturers. Might try them as well. http://www.steinhartwatches.de/en/

Maybe something like this design. I was watching this on on E-bay, but didn't place a bid. It is know as "the Shelby watch" due to the two vertical blue stripes on the white background.

I really like the Redline series of watches seen on eBay. I have to agree that the chronograph are most interesting, but I am not a fan of most of the banker/lawyer style watches seen above (no offense as these are subjective decisions for sure).

Really a much bigger fan of the largest dial, bulkier, mechanical looking chronograph in stainless, alum, carbon fiber, etc. white or red stitching on leather bands. Extra dials, interesting mechanical features, etc.

And there is really no reason that very nice examples shouldn't be available for around $250 max. I would much rather have a dozen of this type of watch that I enjoy wearing and don't worry about too much, rather than a $1,000 watch that would only get worn during the evening or such.

Just some feedback...

Jer,
Take a look at the Citizen Calibre 8700. Silver band with Guardsman Blue face. Nice watch no winding and easy upgrade for Shelby. Estimated price $500-$800 with upgrade.

Acroholic,

I have ZERO to do with the Redline watch company... I do have items on eBay with the user name redlinetoys, hoever, nothing to do with Redline watches, or any other watches for that matter.

The use of my forum name has to do with my interest in all mechanical full size TOYS which hit REDLINE frequently (boats, tri five chevs, hot rods, broncos and Shelby's)... Thus, RedlineToys. I also collect toy cars, including Redline Hot Wheels.

Nice assuming though...

I would second the citizen watches. I have an eco-drive that I love, and would certainly be interested in a Shelby version chrono.

It has certainly taken a back seat while we focus on our relocation and planning for a MASSIVE Shelby Vegas Bash 2014… but it WILL happen…. I can't wear a $29 watch much longer!

 

 

Thanks,
