We see a lot of concept cars here and there in the auto industry, but it’s very rare to see a concept watch come across our pages. The famous French designer Fabien Cacheux has unveiled the new "Silver Arrow" GT Series concept watch in honor of the new Mercedes SLS AMG. You may have seen some of his previous work in the famous Bugatti 16 C Galibier watch.

The new Silver Arrow GT Series watch features a central tourbillon, power reserve, and a tachometer needle’s three star-shaped reflecting the emblem of the brand. The power reserve is at 6 o’clock. The bracelet is made of titanium neoprene and opens and closes like the butterfly doors of the Mercedes. The two buttons (Open / Close) surrounding the crown can open and close the car remotely.

This idea is similar to the one of the Aston Martin DBS Volante Watch which can also open and close the doors of the DBS in addition to turning the lights on and off.

The "Silver Arrow" GT Series concept watch is as good of an idea as any other watch that has seen production, but, as we mentioned earlier, the decision to produce this timepiece is still up in the air.

I do love watches but I don’t get why do they need to produce one and why does its so expensive! Its just a century old technology luxury watch!

coolest feature on this watch has to be its Open/Close buttons that surround the ring, which allow you to lock and unlock the car remotely, much like the Aston Martin AMVOX2 DBS Transponder watch.

Why would the watch act like a key-less entry system when the car already has that via the special card you mentioned YOURSELF? Criticism is always good, as long as it ha substance...
