Hamptonites are racing to add top-of-the line timepieces built for speed and style to their well-curated collections.
Summer on the East End means taking to the open road. Whether you are tooling on the highway in the hottest new convertible, tearing up the track in a high-performance sports car, or cruising the back roads on a custom-built motorbike, there’s a fine Swiss timepiece well-suited to being your traveling companion. Several key brands have aligned themselves with the world of automobiles, including Baume & Mercier, which created a Shelby Cobra line in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Cobra’s victory at the 1965 FIA International Championship. Others brands have fostered relationships with specific races around the world, while a select few are inspired by motorcycle makers and competitions. Whichever mode of transport you prefer, there is a watch to take you across the finish line in high style.
