While MG Cars is struggling to stay on the market, its classic models have been used as an inspiration for superb limited-edition watches developed by MeisterSinger. They have used the distinctive shape and structure of a 1950s MG TD radiator grille and developed a pretty expensive and awesome watch.

The watch features a stainless-steel case hiding top-quality Swiss movements and dials protected by hardened mineral glass. Each unit will be offered with Cordovan straps crafted from smooth horse leather and offered in three different face-and-strap combinations appropriately named: "Abingdon", "Cecil Kimber" and "Cream Cracker.” The names celebrate the MG factory, the company’s founder, and the most famous of the Works MGs, respectively.

If you are interested, then you should know the new MG watch by MeisterSinger is priced at £1405 (around $2,200 at the current exchange rates). Only 100 units a year will be produced.

Whenever you’re stumped looking for the perfect Christmas gift to buy somebody you love, it’s always a good idea to surf the Internet to find out what kind of items are out there that make for the perfect holiday present.

Well, if you happen to be reading this, may we suggest this pretty fancy but affordable mechanical timepiece from Subaru ?

It will only be limited to 300 units and priced at around $700 a piece, a figure that’s not that steep relative to what you’re going to get in the market for a timepiece with an automotive collaboration on it.

As for the watch itself, there are some touches done to it that pay homage to the automotive world, including a power-reserve counter that’s shaped like a fuel gauge at the six o’clock position and a window on both sides of the gears that show hints of a figure that appears to have been inspired by a boxer engine piston. And, and did we mention that the watch itself uses gears to measure the time while also showing local times of a number of international cities and even the Nurburgring race track.

The only caveat is that if you’re thinking of scooping this timepiece up as a Christmas present, you might have to wait past the holidays to get it. Subaru will actually bring the watch to the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon where they will have 30 units on hand ready to be sold.

Although you probably won’t get these products in time for the holidays - or maybe you can with expedited shipping - McLaren’s recently launched eStore has come out with a range of new products that make for some pretty sweet Christmas gifts.

There are a multitude of accessories, including carbon fiber luggages, a leather wallet and card holder that have been finished in carbon fibre weave-effect leather with McLaren orange stitching, and yes, even key chains, gloves, clothing, caps, and jackets.

The new Chronograph reflects the new sports car in colour, materials and design. The watch’s dials are made in carbon fiber and were inspired by the MP4-12C’s carbon fiber chassis, while the sapphire crystal inserts reveal the movement behind the watch face.

Of course this exclusive watch comes with a huge price: £8950 - or about $14,500 at the current exchange rates.

This handsome watch gets it inspirations from the elegance and the exclusivity of the GT vehicles produced in Maranello.

Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin are celebrating eight years of partnership with the unveiling of the AMVOX7 - the first vertical-trigger chronograph equipped with a power reserve display. As usual, exclusivity comes with a quite a big price: $26,000.

The watch features design elements seen on the latest Aston Martin models. For example, its dial was inspired by the radiator grille of the Vanquish . As a first for Jaeger-LeCoultre watches, the AMVOX introduces an intuitive display method that is in perfect accord with the sensation of immediacy conferred by a sporting outlook and the power reserve display. You will have to release the lever to unlock the glass, and then press at 12 o’clock to start or stop the timing function. Pressing at 6 o’clock will reset the time.

The watch is equipped with a Jaeger-LeCoultre 756 automatic mechanical caliber with a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and a power reserve of 65-hour power reserve. The comparison between the AMVOX’s "motor" to that of the new Aston Martin Vanquish is inevitable.

Over the years, we’ve seen a number of collaborations between heavyweight automakers and their Swiss time piece counterparts. The list actually reads long and the announcement that Ball Watch Company and BMW are tying up for their own partnership will only add to that growing list.

As part of this exclusive agreement, Ball will be tasked to build the new BALL & BMW timepieces, which will incorporate various technical feats into it, highlighted by a revolutionary anti-shock system. Ball’s exclusive patented Amortiser system will also be part of the collection and serving as a means of protection for the watch against bumps, dings, and bruises.

Another unique feature of this watch, and one that owes its creation to Ball’s status as the official standard watch of the American railroads, is the use of micro-mechanical engineering, which features a shock-absorbing, anti-magnetic protection ring.

As far as aesthetic design of these watches are concerned, Ball will be paying homage to the unique and distinctive design language of BMW vehicles, reflecting dynamism and strength of character that BMW’s line up of models have come to be known for.

In early 2012, Ford unveiled the very cool Shelby 1000 , a special edition Mustang delivering an amazing 950 HP. Following that reveal, David Yurman released a series of limited edition timepieces to commemorate the unveiling of the Shelby 1000. Now both the car and the watch are featured in this new video released by Yurman.

This video was released to celebrate American Iconic designer, Carroll Shelby, as well as to introduce the fantastic timepiece that was created to coincide with the powerful machine Shelby built. The watch is limited to 300 units and 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 Ford Shelby Mustang 1000 is powered by a 5.4 liter V8 engine that has received new connecting rods, a new crank, and new pistons. The team also upgraded the cooling and exhaust, replaced the supercharger, and gas flowed the heads. These changes result in an impressive 950 HP in the road-legal version and an even more impressive 1,100 for the track version.

Whether you’re watching the video to take a look at the limited timepiece or to listen to the glorious sounds of the highly-modified V8, this video will definitely be worth your while.

We know, we know. It caught us by surprise too. British tuner Kahn Design has a new project, except that this one doesn’t have anything to do with wheels.

What it is though is something that a lot of watch enthusiasts will surely enjoy: the Kahn GMT Timepiece.

Yeah, it’s a watch. Designed in the UK by Azfal Kahn himself and manufactured in Switzerland, the Kahn GMT Timepiece is the epitome of a watch that comes with a classic, no-frills style that embodies the company’s tuning reputation. The white face is finished in white and matches really well with the full soft leather strap that exudes that classic look we’re talking about.

It’s ideally suited to be worn as a casual watch of informal set-ups and it also has time zone references of just about every major city in the world, allowing you to keep tabs on just about every time zone there is.

All told, the Kahn GMT Timepiece makes for a dandy watch on your wrist, proving that the British tuner has far more skills than we thought they had.
