We know you don’t want to think about it, but the holiday season is going to be here before you know it, so it’s time to start putting together a list for Santa. And may we suggest adding the Limited Edition Spyker Timepieces Collection – but only if you’ve been really good this year.

This collection of three timepieces celebrate the Dutch brand’s 24 Hours of Le Mans participation and are outfitted with the design details that echo the styling features of Spyker’s luxury supercars.

Designed and engineered by renowned watch and luxury goods expert, Thierry Chaunu of Expression D’Artistes International S.A., these chronographs are available in solid 18K gray or rose gold finishes (limited to a run of 250) or in polished steel or matte black titanium finishes (limited to a run of 1000 each). Hand-stitched using Royal Dutch Hulshof leather, the quilted leather bracelets come in Dutch Spyker Orange, Black Anthracite or Blanc de Blanc white – the same as Spyker’s supercar interiors.

Boasting meticulous and precise detailing, the bezel carries Spyker’s Latin motto: NULLA TENACI INVIA EST VIA – ‘For the tenacious no road is impassable’ – while the crown showcases the Dutch brand’s wire-spoke and propeller bonnet badge. Cool features include the watch’s pushbuttons, which look like Spyker exhaust pipes, and the steel “bouchonné” dial, which include hours, minutes, seconds, and 42-hour power reserve, replicates the turned aluminium finish of the supercar’s dashboard. Plus, its Valjoux caliber 7750 automatic mechanical movement sports a rotor that is inspired by the design of the Spyker C8 Aileron’s Rotorblade wheels.

You can order you favorite online at www.SpykerTime.com as well as selected watch retailers and Spyker-sponsored car owners’ events. The timepieces range in price from $9,750 to $23,500.
