Mercedes-Benz launch limited edition watches

For the market launch of the new luxury coupé from the brand with the star, Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH presents a very special exclusive wristwatch, the CL Time. The large Mercedes-Benz coupés have always set standards in design and technology. In cooperation with the watchmaker Mühle-Glashütte, a unique timepiece has been created. Form design, supreme technology and the highest level of workmanship are appropriate to the highest quality demands which are rightly expected of the CL-Class. Following the model series code of the top model - C 216 – only 216 individual numbered specimens of the watch will be manufactured.

Mühle-Glashütte, a company rich in tradition, is a guarantor of high quality and precision and has been a long standing partner of the Mercedes-Benz license collection TIME, a collection of 14 mechanical watches for men and two for women. The form design of the product line and the CL Time was developed in cooperation between Mercedes-Benz designers and Mühle-Glashütte.



Expressive design and supreme technology
The expressive appearance of the CL Time follows the styling of the new CL-Class: the purist and clear-cut design gives the watch the confident repose and powerful appearance of a strong character. Every detail is convincing: from the steel case with brushed satinised finish and screw-in strap attachment bridges to the applique numerals on the salmon-coloured dial and the prismatic Mercedes star next to the date display. A view of the finest watchmaker art is allowed by the convex sapphire crystal back. Eye-catching is the central rotor of the automatic movement with its gold heavy metal ring. This watch with the Soprod calibre 9035 in the Mühle Version displays apart from the hours, minutes and seconds also the date and the current status of the power reserve. A separate 24-hour display has day and night information. Hour and minute hands are coated with Super-LumiNova, and together with the luminous dots above the applique numerals allow easy reading in darkness. The screw-in winding crown is unobtrusively adorned with the Mercedes star. On the screw-in back there is the type designation MBP.06216 (year 2006 and model code of the CL-Class) and also the number of the individual watch, beginning with 001/216. A high-quality leather strap of Louisiana Reptile Leather with a double folding clasp embossed with ’Mercedes-Benz’ guarantee the highest wearing comfort.

Modern classics
Since the 300 S Coupé of 1952 all the large coupés from Mercedes-Benz were always the embodiment of elegance and exclusivity – or quite simply dream cars! This also applies to the seventh coupé generation, the new CL-Class. Exquisite and noble, fascinating and powerful, this is the effect of the new top model from Mercedes-Benz. Also impressive is the appearance of the CL Time. A clear-cut and purist design coupled with supreme watchmaking technology distinguishes this exceptional timepiece, and makes of the wristwatch for the new CL-Class that which it is – a dream watch!

The CL Time will be offered at selected retailers as of October 2006 in a limited edition of 216 specimens. The price in Germany is 3,800.00 EUR (incl. VAT).

We have bought many things from MB Stores. Sometimes i order it on the Net from different dealers in the USA and Canada. Every dealer around the world carries something different which you don´t find it in other countries. And they´re good quality. I have a C-Class MB (TagHeuer) watch for many years.

You sound as though you are on commission. You could get a proper Rolex for that money with screw down bezel and totally waterproof to great depths. And certified to Chronometer standards too.

It's a proven fact that an $14,000.00 honda civic is more reliable in compare with MB (E-class around $50,000.00), but you are not driving Honda Civic.

Depending on the expensive watch. Breitling, for instance, will probably outlast your Casio, your Mercedes and, quite possibly, you.

Speaking of Merc and Breitling - didn't Merc have a limited Breitling watch some time ago?

92% of all people suck at math. I am a part of the 9% who don't.

Current Cars:
2008 ML320 CDI 4MATIC (W164) - Silver/Black
2008 C230 4MATIC (W204) - White/Black

Past Cars:
2002 E320 (W210) - Silver/Black - Sold due to rust
