At Pebble Beach, Jaguar unveiled the XJ75 Platinum, a concept that is said to preview the R version of the XJ luxury sedan. That you knew already, but today we are going to talk about an important feature offered with the concept: a bespoke mechanical clock created by British watch brand Bremont. Coincidentally, this is the first time the company creates a clock for a car, but when Jaguar asks, people tend to do what they want.
Bremont’s co-founder Giles English said: "Jaguar is one of the world’s premier manufacturers of luxury cars and a great British brand. We are very proud to have been asked to make this clock for their XJ75 car and were keen to make something different for Jaguar. As such rather than a quartz clock we have created a beautiful mechanical clock that also has a chronograph function."
The clock is distinguished by a black and white color theme that flows well with the
Satin Matte Pearlescent White exterior color and dark chrome or gloss black exterior chrome elements.
Giles Taylor, Jaguar chief designer for the car said:"“Our design teams talk a similar language when it comes to clean cut form with a sharp, sporting edge. The XJ75 Bremont clock design has superb functional clarity in its detailing and this is combined with a beautifully crafted outer metal bezel that suggests strength and longevity."
