Baume & Mercier’s designers were particularly impressed by the aesthetics and unmatched power of the racing car built during the 1960s. The spokes in the wheels were the inspiration for the rotor inside the movement. Made of titanium, it leans on the car’s lightweight aluminium construction. Design elements, such as the racing car’s typical stripes and Cobra logo, are cleverly integrated into the subdials and second hand. The main dial in blue harmonizes perfectly with the black, carbon-look calfskin strap. It has a blue seam and a blue lining, giving the watch additional character.
The special edition is limited to 100 pieces and watch lovers who secure one of the watches will belong to an exclusive circle. The Baume & Mercier Clifton Club Shelby® Cobra Bucherer BLUE EDITIONS will be on sale only at all Bucherer boutiques.

About the Bucherer BLUE EDITIONS
The Bucherer BLUE EDITIONS watch collection comprises 16 exclusive timepieces that Bucherer has created with 11 renowned watchmakers.
For almost 130 years, Bucherer has offered its customers a wide choice of outstanding timepieces from first-class manufacturers. The unique connections between Bucherer and the industry’s best-known brands are the result of many years’ ongoing cooperation based on know-how, mutual respect and an impressive depth of expertise in relevant areas. The 16 ladies’ and men’s watches in the exclusive Bucherer BLUE EDITIONS collection are the fruit of these unique partnerships and were developed jointly by Bucherer with watch manufacturers Audemars Piguet, Baume & Mercier, Carl F. Bucherer, Chopard, IWC Schaffhausen, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Longines, H. Moser & Cie., Panerai, Piaget and Tudor. At the heart of the collection is the color blue. It has for centuries been a source of inspiration for countless artists and is reminiscent of the sky and the sea, and also the color of nobility. Above and beyond that, it symbolizes the House of Bucherer and, as such, is one of the Bucherer brand’s most recognizable features.
