A car like the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is all about time. The time it takes to get to 60. The time it traveled – with gullwing doors, no less – to bring the original SL's design from the past into the present. The time each customer will have to wait with baited breath to get ahold of one. You get the point. So it's only natural that the car itself should have be accompanied by an appropriate timepiece.
Unfortunately, while Mercedes has collaborated with a number of watchmakers in the past, it has yet to release a timepiece to go with its latest flagship. That's where independent French designer Fabien Cacheux comes in, designing the Silver Arrow concept watch you see here, complete with tourbillon movement, power reserve, titanium case, neoprene strap and, like Jaeger-LeCoultre's Aston Martin transponder, buttons incorporated to open and close the doors remotely. Will Mercedes or one of its watchmaking partners make it a reality? Only time will tell.
