With the Ford Mustang celebrating its 50th anniversary next April, the American automaker is readying plenty of accessories to commemorate the occasion.

Manufactured by Shinola in Detroit, this limited edition timepiece will run you $700 and only 1,000 units will ever be produced, making it a true collector’s item for any Mustang enthusiast. The watch itself is hand-assembled and made with over four dozen parts. It features a domed sapphire crystal at the 3:00 date position and a stainless steel case with a rotating top ring. The 50 Years Mustang logo is located at the 12:00 position and each watch will be individually numbered in the back.

“Like the Mustang itself, we want our licensed products to convey an attitude of strength, passion and quality,” said John Nens, Ford lead for global brand licensing. “Shinola embodies all of these things and is a perfect fit to celebrate this special moment in automotive history.”
