Everybody and their mothers seem to have been bitten by the timepiece bug these days, and by ’everybody’, we mean auto manufacturers. It seems that the way of thinking with these people is that if you’re making cars, why not make watches to go along with them?
The latest - and surely, won’t be the last - auto brand that’s set to release an exclusive line of timepieces is Spyker , which announced that it has partnered with Expressions d’Artistes International for an exclusive line of watches that is sure to be on par with what those rival automakers have come out with recently.
Details are still sketchy at this point although it’s been rumored that these Spyker watches will be crafted out of steel and will come with some serious bling in the form of white gold and rose gold. In addition to that, the watches are also expected to be styled similar to how Spyker styles their vehicles, including the use of the same materials found on the cars.
The official unveiling of these rare watches is expected to commence at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June, at which point we’ll all have a clearer understanding of what makes these timepieces unique to Spyker. Prices for the watches have been listed at around €8,000 ($10,700) for the "base" steel model and jumping all the way up to €20,000 ($27,000) for the blinged-up rose gold model.
