Infiniti has teamed up with Swiss watchmaker Bell & Ross to design the Limited Edition BR02-8 Infiniti Carbon Case Purple 8 Pro Dial wristwatch.

It’s the second timepiece to be released by Infiniti – the first was the special edition BR03-92 Instrument Phantom to celebrate the launch of last year’s Infiniti FX Limited Edition performance crossover. The BR02-8 Infiniti Carbon Case Purple 8 Pro Dial Stylish takes its cues from both brands and the result is this exclusive timepiece.

Showcased on a matte black dial, the seconds pointer and eighth digit boast a photo-luminescent finish in the same distinct purple color favored by Infiniti. It’s interesting to note that the number eight is a symbol of luck in Asia and also symbolizes the mathematical sign of infinity – not to mention that when you turn it on it on its side, it is also happens to be the automaker’s logo. The glass front casing is made from anti-reflection sapphire crystal and it features automatic mechanical ETA 2982 movement. Turn this watch over to see the engraved Infiniti and Bell & Ross signature on its steel case back.

“The Limited Edition BR02-8 Infiniti Carbon Case Purple 8 Pro Dial wristwatch is a true celebration of our continued association with Bell & Ross, for which we are very proud,” said Andy Palmer, Infiniti’s Executive Vice President. “The new timepiece effortlessly embodies the unique qualities of both brands to offer discerning customers a rare and highly sought-after addition to their collection.”

There are only going to be 200 of the Limited Edition BR02-8 Infiniti Carbon Case Purple 8 Pro Dial watches available for sale worldwide. You can buy one from any of Infiniti Centres for ÂŁ3,090 ($4,936).

It’s time to wear luxury on your wrist. Infiniti, the luxury automotive manufacturer from Japan, has just released the Limited Edition BR03-92 Instrument Phantom Infiniti wristwatch, engineered by the Swiss specialist watchmaker Bell & Ross.

Limited to just 100 individually numbered units, the Instrument Phantom Infiniti watch was inspired by the recently revealed Infiniti FX Limited Edition performance crossover. Offered only through Infiniti Centers in Europe, this timepiece is the perfect complement to either a finely crafted suit or a button down and jeans, thanks to its black carbon powder finish, which envelopes its 42 mm case. Lined with a distinct purple coating, the seconds hand sits on a galvanic black dial, and fans of this luxury automotive moniker will notice it’s the same color that lies at the heart of Infiniti’s brand identity.

Says Jim Wright, Vice President of Infiniti Europe: “The limited edition BR03-92 Instrument Phantom watch is a perfect tribute to the core qualities of Infiniti. It is also about offering the Infiniti owner something truly special and individual which we are able to achieve through this exceptional timepiece.”

If you can find one of the Limited Edition Phantom Infiniti wristwatch, it will set you back €2,809.97 or about $3,576 U.S.
