Keeping time with the latest trends, car manufacturers have diversified into various accessories. Exclusive watches, too have a niche market. When the two markets converge it’s the beginning of good times. We are talking about the Mercedes and Mühle-Glashütte collaboration, and the birth of the CL Time, a limited edition timepiece of 216, launched to coincide with the market debut of the Mercedes CL-Class. The watch has a brushed-steel case and Louisiana alligator leather strap with butterfly clasp, and also has a date indicator, power-reserve meter, 24-hour display and sapphire crystal front and back to view the Soprod caliber 9035 movement. Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH describes the dial as “salmon-colored” which looks rather tan than pink.
The timepiece sells for a hefty €3800 ($4770).
