Clock is kept wound by car’s acceleration and braking.
British watchmaker Bremont has created a bespoke mechanical clock for Jaguar’s new C-X75 concept supercar.
The clock can be mounted in a turbine-inspired holder in the centre console and uses the acceleration and braking forces of the car to keep it wound. Jaguar’s designers also took styling cues from Bremont’s MBII watch when creating graphics for the time-related features of the car.
Furthering the collaboration, Jaguar has taken inspiration from Bremont’s MBI watch, which it makes exclusively for the 7,000 people to date who have had their lives saved by the Martin-Baker ejector seat. In recognition of this, the interior door release handles of the C-X75 are crafted from aircraft-grade aluminium and mounted in the base of the seat, in the same position as a fighter jet ejector lever.
Bremont co-founder Giles English said: “Jaguar is not only one of the world’s premier manufacturers of luxury cars, but a great British brand with a rich heritage of producing beautifully engineered cars with sleek, sporting body style. We are very proud to have been asked again by Jaguar to make a bespoke car clock and thrilled for it to be for their C-X75 supercar.”
