I truly love these "club sniper " watches. What does that mean? Well Synper watch's designer Jean-Francois Ruchonnet, was actually a sniper, and designed the Snyper One watch to resemble the style of today's high-tech sniper rifles. The timepieces have incredibly cool macho designs to them, but at almost $8000 for the most basic ones, these are watches destined for social clubs rather than adventure missions. Ruchonnet also quips about the metaphorical component where men "snipe" the women they like from afar. Choosing the target, and then going in to "attack," (ahem, court). I first discussed Synper timepieces here.
Synper now has two limited edition versions that are very neat. Each is limited to just 100 pieces, and comes in black and red, or yellow and red. The case for each is in PVD black steel, and the have special casebacks (where the number in the limited edition is mentioned on the sapphire crystal exhibition window). The 44mm wide case has an infinitely kick-ass design, and here has some nice red or yellow elements to compliment it in the dial. Not sure about prices, but given other Snyper One watch prices, these limited edition models will be about $8,000 each - and you should be able to buy them online via Snyper's website.
