Feature Description

Clifton Club Shelby Cobra CSX2299
196-Piece Numbered Limited Edition

 

In a milestone celebration of the Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe, Baume & Mercier is honored to present a rare chronograph destined to become a collectible. In recognition of the speed record achieved by the Daytona at Le Mans in 1964, only 196 pieces will ever be produced, each numbered to prove its place in this exclusive collection.

Powered with a Swiss-made manufacture self-winding movement (La Joux-Perret 8147-2) with flyback chronograph function, the watch allows the wearer to move from one chronograph reading to another in a single button push. This 44mm diameter case is forged in polished/satin-finished stainless steel and titanium, a highly resistant and light material. Central to its persona is a dial inspired by Peter Brock himself, mirroring the half blue/half silver-colored Shelby livery chosen for the Daytona’s tail marking it as a true original. Framing the bi-color dial are modern Arabic numerals, while the snailed horizontal chronograph counters are offset by tachymeters scale that highlights the speed record of “196mph”.

Between the hands illuminated with Superluminova* C1 blue emission is a vivid red chronograph second hand that features the iconic Cobra logo created by Peter Brock to mark the Shelby brand. Trace your fingers along the edges, and precise details make themselves known. The first is an exact replica of the foot pedals, placed on either side of the crown to control chronograph functions. On the other side, the Cobra insignia is forged into the case band in tribute to the powerful Cobra 289 engine.

Complementing the vivid design is a blue “automotive carbon-like” calfskin strap with black rubberized soft-touch calfskin lining and red stitching. While on the back, the Daytona Coupe’s iconic wheels are represented in exact glory, framed by an engraving of the collection title and proof of limited edition status.

SPIRIT OF AN ICON


Like the Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe it celebrates, each chronograph in our Clifton Club Shelby Cobra collection is a masterpiece of daring form matched to superior performance. From the start, Peter Brock and Alexandre Peraldi, Baume & Mercier Design Director, worked in partnership to interpret each component of the iconic Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe, and prove how bold design can inspire engineering and precision to new heights. The achievement is felt at first glance, with the Daytona’s aerodynamic shape replicated in sweeping lines forged in a 44mm diameter case in polished/satin-finished steel, or steel and titanium. At the center is a dial created by Peter himself, celebrating the Daytona Coupe’s famous livery with a choice of Daytona blue, silver-colored, or half blue/half silver-colored to mirror Peter’s artistry in having the Shelby racing stripes end in a perfect split on the Daytona’s flat tail allowing to easily identify the cars during the race.

Completing the dial are modern Arabic numerals, vertical or horizontal ring chronograph counters in honor of the Daytona Coupe’s dashboard highlighted by a tachymeter scale for speed measurements, and special hours and minutes hands that recall the steering-wheel with Superluminova* C1 blue emission. To signify Peter’s role as designer of the iconic Cobra logo, the red chronograph second hand features the fearsome Cobra itself.

Admire the Clifton Club Shelby Cobra models more closely, and you will discover signature elements from Peter Brock’s design language. The first are detailed replicas of the Daytona Coupe’s foot pedals, present as push buttons to control key functions. On the reverse, the Daytona Coupe’s muscular magnesium alloy wheel design is perfectly replicated on the oscillating weight visible through the sapphire crystal case back surrounded by an etched collection title to signify its exclusivity. Teased between the wheel spokes is a view of the engines that power the Clifton Club Shelby Cobra Limited Editions, featuring automatic Swiss-made self-winding chronograph or flyback chronograph movements. Completing the sporty style are black or blue calfskin “carbon-like” straps, material that recalls the one uses on exceptional automotive facilities, with red or black rubberized soft touch calfskin lining. Each is designed for supreme comfort and durability, offset by an adjustable triple-folding clasp with security push-pieces.
