Which car is your watch…?

Plenty of people have written about the intersection of watches and cars…I’m curious what the car equivalent of your watch is.  I’m curious to see how this thought experiment pans out, and what associations people make—whether it’s about aesthetics, or engines and mechanisms… 

Is your Hublot a Bugatti? Is your vintage explorer a 911 or your BB58 a Datsun 280z? Does a vintage model match with any modern cars for you? Does history affect your choice? (ie Speedmaster and the corvette)

Let’s see what we come up with.

Vintage watch. Vintage car.
Iconic brand, great design. Something my grandfather wore and would have driven.

Ferrari California btw.

Oh, I think that is—especially with your explanation—definitely appropriate!

What great picks! I definitely wouldn’t have thought of this pairing—but it’s great and makes total sense!!!

The Curse of Vintage: most of my watches are as reliable as an Opel.

Skx = Toyota trucks. Long lasting and reliable.  Not the best at anything, but customizable and practical.

In honor of Magnum PI, I'm pretty sure my GMT 16750 is a Ferrari 308 GTS...

The Sinn 556A is the 1.0 TSI manual box 110  horsepower Golf.

No thrills, no non-sense, not cheap but looks good and works well
