Caroll Shelby Licensing Inc and jeweler David Yurman, have teamed up to launch an exclusive line of Shelby Limited Edition watches commemorate the unveiling of the Shelby 1000 at the New York International Auto Show.
David Yurman revealed its Limited Edition Shelby 1000 timepiece during the press conference on Thursday, April 5. Inspired by Shelby American’s illustrious 50-year history and the unleashing of its most powerful car yet, the Limited Edition Shelby 1000 timepiece also sports a stealth, 43.5mm stainless steel and rubber case, which houses the Swiss automatic chronograph Valjoux 7753 movement.
A tachymeter is engraved on the bezel, allowing the wearer to log lap times with ease and the iconic Shelby Cobra insignia is hand-finished and applied to the multi-layer galvanic dial, which is accentuated by vertical, guilloche racing stripes.
A highly-textured natural rubber strap inspired by the cobra snake belly keeps the timepiece secure and, as with every special car to roll out of Shelby American’s factory, the timepiece back is etched with Carroll Shelby’s signature.
David Yurman will produce a limited edition run of 150 stainless steel and 150 black PVD versions of the timepiece, which will be available at David Yurman retail stores, select, authorized David Yurman Timepiece retailers and at www.davidyurman.com.
