Carroll Shelby in cooperation with David Yurman have unveiled a very cool limited edition watch in order to commemorate the unveiling of the Shelby 1000. The watch will be limited to only 300 units: 150 stainless steel and 150 black PVD versions.
The watch features a 43.5mm stainless steel and rubber case, which houses the Swiss automatic chronograph Valjoux 7753 movement. A tachymeter is engraved on the bezel, allowing the wearer to log lap times with ease and the iconic Shelby Cobra insignia is hand-finished and applied to the multi-layer galvanic dial, which is accentuated by vertical, guilloche racing stripes. The watch is also featuring a highly textured natural rubber strap inspired by the cobra snake.
"Shelby and David Yurman are among the most respected American brands in their industries," said Tracey Smith, president of Carroll Shelby Licensing. "Just like the cars that created the Shelby American legend, David Yurman creates handcrafted jewelry and timepieces that are equally valued by collectors and enthusiasts. The Yurman watch and eyewear perfectly complement the exclusive Shelby 1000 vehicle. It beautifully demonstrates the innovation of both brands that deliver unique and distinctive time-honored products."
