It’s been a busy few weeks in Monterey with all of the incredible car festivals and events that range from the 25th Anniversary of McCall’s annual Motorworks Revival to the 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d’ Elegance, which we wrote about here and here. At the McCall’s annual Motorworks Revival, which has become known as the kickoff party to the world-renowned Monterey Car Week, Baume & Mercier introduced four limited edition chronographs to the world that pay homage to Shelby Cobra racecar drivers who competed behind the wheel of the famous Shelby Cobra CSX2128 in the early 1960’s.
Baume & Mercier honored racecar drivers Dan Gurney (No. #15), Ken Miles (No. #50), Dave MacDonald (No. #97) and Allen Grant (No. #96) with a watch displaying their distinct racecar number, as well as incorporating aesthetic elements of their winning cars. Only 15 of each of the four limited-edition Legendary Driver Capeland Shelby® Cobra chronographs will be available worldwide, each selling for $4,850.
