  • Tag Heuer Monaco

    Some things in the motoring world are inexorably linked. Classic car enthusiasts often have an interest in other classic transport - boats, aircraft, motorcycles. The glitz and glamour of Formula 1 racing goes hand-in-hand with champagne. Many motorsports though have a timepiece connection. In modern times this is largely due to the companies that control the live racing timing at events, such as Tissot and Tag Heuer to name but two, but a good watch will always go down well in a race car paddock. We've picked out five of the most unique motoring-themed watches for the appreciative...

  • Novelist Jeffery Deaver with James Bond's newest ride, the Bentley Continental GT

    James Bond fans know a lot about 007's cars. That's because they're often as integral to Bond films as the ubiquitous Bond Girls. Over time, Mr. Bond has been associated with a number of high-end rides. Readers of the Ian Fleming novels that brought 007 to life know that the world's most famous spy first drove a 1933 Bentley convertible. But folks more familiar with the films often associate Bond with Aston Martin or Lotus (especially the badass Lotus Esprit in The Spy Who Loved Me that transformed into a submarine). That may change if the latest Bond novel ever makes the jump to the big...
