When it comes to luxury watches and cars, exceptional design brings together precise inner function with an alluring exterior. That’s exactly why men will spend a fortune to attain these lustworthy symbols of status and power with a heavy dose of style. Cars and watches share similar structures where the outward design is admired and appreciated, but true enthusiasts know the value of their intricate workings within that make these item covetable.
Some of 2019’s most noteworthy cars showcased at the Monterey Car show pair perfectly with Rolex’s most sought after watches of the moment. The knowledge and skillful mechanics that went into these masterpieces are a feat in their own right. Intricate mechanical structures that function beneath the face of each Rolex mirror the superior engineering below the hood of these luxury automobiles for a high-quality product that merits the high price tag. In a dream world, where we have the funds to finance both purchases, these killer combinations have the ability to turn any man into a total boss, the ultimate power player.
For a bit of indulgence, we picked and paired 6 cars and watches for a drool-worthy feast for the eyes.
Go for style gold with this Porsche and Rolex pairing. The bright yellow exterior and tinted-black windows of this Porsche handsomely echo the black dial and gold bracelet links of the Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller. This watch and car make a bold statement on their own, but when paired together, it’s an epic power move to let everyone know you’ve arrived.
Car: Porsche RUF CTR
The RUF CTR rose to fame as a result of a test done by Road & Track that was published in their July 1987 issue. Organized to determine the world’s fastest car, the test was held at Volkswagen’s Ehra-Lessien test track, and the “Yellowbird” as it was named, went 211 mph. It is best known for its use in one of the first automotive viral videos known as “Fascination”, where Stefan Roser slid it around the Nurburgring Nordeschleife in loafers.
Watch: Rolex Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller in Oystersteel and Yellow-Gold ($17,150)
The Oyster Perpetual Sky-Dweller is noted for its second time zone display and off-center dial. A newer model of the iconic Oyster Perpetual, this watch is ideal for the full-time traveler. The Sky Dweller was originally introduced in 2012, but has since been expanded upon by the master craftsmen at Rolex who, for this model, worked exclusively in precious medals.
