Christopher Ward C70 DBR1 Chronometer

If you’re like me, you probably have a thing for Aston Martins and luxurious watches as well, and this might be a dream come true for you, for me, for all of us. This is the new Christopher Ward C70 DBR1 Chronometer, a watch that’s actually crafted from metal recovered during the restoration of the Aston Martin DBR1 that won the prestigious 24 hours race from Le Mans back in 1959.

The historic car has been recently sold for $31 million, making it one of the most expensive cars sold at auction, and that’s why I think you could say this watch is even more special. It will be produced in just 100 units, each of them with a medallion that sits under the sapphire crystal as the face engraved with the same number 5 as the car wore at that race.

The rest of the 42 mm case is made from marine grade stainless and features the lovely metallic British racing green on its dial and anstrap Italian brown leather strap, stitched and perforated through. The price for this bespoke watch ? Just $2,675 – not that much considering its looks, history and availability. I want one!
