Right out of a James Bond movie, you can look just as cool when you open or close your Mercedes-Benz with help from a stylish timepiece.

The brainchild of French designer Fabien Cacheux (the same designer who brought us the Bugatti Galibier GT concept watch ), the Silver Arrow concept watch is his latest creation, which draws its inspiration from the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.

The Silver Arrow is a stunning and timeless work of wearable art that incorporates a whirl, a power reserve, and a tachometer needle’s three star-shaped reflecting the emblem of the brand. Its case is mounted on a machined titanium neoprene bracelet that opens and closes just like the butterfly doors of the Mercedes’ AMG SLS.

But the coolest feature on this watch has to be its Open/Close buttons that surround the ring, which allow you to lock and unlock the car remotely, much like the Aston Martin AMVOX2 DBS Transponder watch. It looks so good, even Bond would approve.
