Starting the Twelve Days of Car Gifts with a Hallmark Knight Rider Ornament yesterday, it is time to move a little higher in fashion and price for day two. The use of the word “time” is appropriate for the second day of this holiday time series for Automoblog.net.
The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is a highly sought-after vehicle this holiday season after of year of building momentum through auto shows. While the $51,995 starting price may be too rich of a cost for some Corvette fans, some less expensive lifestyle gear has been prepared under license by General Motors in honour of the seventh-generation version of the 60-plus year old sports car. For a vehicle with a long history that also possesses an ability of breaking records, maybe a special watch is the best way to share your love for the Chevrolet Corvette.
Designed specifically for the General Motors-backed Corvette Collection, Seventh Generation Corvette Watch is styled in black and silver to replicate the interior presentation of the 2014 model year sports car. A chronograph featuring Swiss-made quartz movement, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray themed wristwatch is constructed with performance car materials. One of the more lavish motorsport materials, carbon fiber, is prominently presented as the dial face for Seventh Generation Corvette Watch. In case you are wondering, that is actual carbon fiber and not some sticker or appliqué. The number 2, 4, 8, 10 and 12 are marked within the watch’s black, white and red face along with the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray logo. A stainless steel casing complete with four silver screws keeps the Seventh Generation Corvette Watch protected for water resistance to 100 meters or 10 ATM. Another unique feature on the wristwatch is a ZIP arm that elegantly covers the timepiece’s crown.
The band of the Seventh Generation Corvette Watch is as equally as detailed as the face. A black leather band is accented by detailed stitching. A nubuck lining is found within the inner band are of the wristwatch. A stainless steel buckle featuring the new Corvette emblem holds the watch’s band tightly to the lucky owner’s wrist.
Limited to a strict production run of just 100 pieces, the high-end Seventh Generation Corvette Watch sells for $775.00 on the Corvette Collection website. Coming inside a luxury gift box, the good news is standard shipping is free for the watch.
