What does Carroll Shelby have to do with Swiss watches? We’re really not sure—but we’re sure it has to result in a better product than the compromised and overpriced Apple Watch.

Baume & Mercier, a Swiss watchmaker (and part of the Richemont Group) will partner with the Shelby brand for a limited-edition run of watches celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 427 Shelby Cobra’s unveiling as well as its first winning of the FIA Sports Car World Championship.

The watches, known as Capeland Shelby Cobra limited-editions, will be designed and built by Baume & Mercier. “The elegance of lines, attention to high-quality and legacy of expertise are some of the common characteristics between our creations, our philosophy and values,” said Alain Zimmermann CEO of Baume & Mercier.
As yet, there are no details on the watches’ specification, design, price, or availability—we’ll have to wait until June for the full unveiling.
