Carol Shelby & David Yurman's Ultimate Muscle Watch
By Romit Jethwaney — April 19, 2013
"Inspiration always comes from objects of beauty. Since I can remember, American Muscle cars have always been a passion of mine. To collaborate with Shelby on its 50th Anniversary is a dream turned to reality” said Evan Yurman; Head of jewelley and watches and son of David Yurman.
One can recognise a Shelby from its muscularity and fine lines, not to forget the aggression in the engine. The Shelby 1000 fulfills the traditional criteria the company has for all its automobiles, with an acceleration of 200 mph.
The 1000 inspired David Yurman to create a limited edition timepiece. The dial measures a healthy 43.5 mm stainless steel case, driven by a Swiss Automatic Chronograph Valjoux 7753 movement. The watch has a tachymeter engraved on its bezel with the case back displaying the Carrol Shelby signature.
The Shelby 1000 is produced in Limited Edition of 150 Numbered Pieces at a retail price of USD 8,600.
