The French manufacturer BRM in cooperation with Gulf Racing have revealed the limited edition watch V12-44-GU-N-AG-1. The new watch will be distinguished by its black PVD aluminum dial and the distinct Gulf Racing logo and racing stripes. There will be only 100 units built, each priced at $8,450. The company is also offering a V6-44 alternative also limited to 1000 units, but with a price of $4,350.

The V12-44 watch will be offered Gulf blue with orange while dark blue accents adorn the dial and are carried over to the rich handmade leather strap. The BRM’s signature buckle clasp is made from 12 meticulous components of machined aluminum.

The V12 uses heavily-modified ETA Valjoux 7753 in a man-sized 44mm polished stainless steel case. Unlike 99 percent of watch cases that are stamped, the case of the V12 – referencing a piston with grooved sides – is machined from a solid metal billet and requires 300 operations per case alone!

One thing that I would have loved about this watch is that they should have added more functionality. Sure it that a stopwatch, but I would prefer that they added a speedometer, considering that it’s a sportscar themed watch.

This one is quite a spiffy timepiece. Red and black is definitely a nice combination on this one, and the design looks very rugged.

Yeah this one is really good looking. I love the fact that it is also well crafted. To bad that it is well above my budget for a watch.

Yeah, it really has a nice look to it, with the design being rather simple. But the amount of attention that the manufacturers put into this one is really astounding.

Well, I am not really fond of those super car themed watches, but this one is certainly a nice piece to have, and it is quite functional to.
