How Fast is Your Watch?

Watches and cars have a long, wonderful history together. Iconic automakers such as Porsche, Ferrari, Bentley, Aston-Martin, and Mercedes-Benz have teamed up with the best and beautiful from the horological world. As important as those car companies I mentioned, names such as Breitling, Omega, Tag Heuer, Jaeger-LeCoultre, and Audemars Piguet. The cars are beautiful and well-crafted instruments, but the watches are just as marvelous in their intricacies. If you had to work on your car, you could easily grasp the parts in your hand and feel the weight of the tools for the job in front of you. Watch parts are beyond small, and as fragile as the guibo joint on a thoroughbred LeMons race car. Do you have a favorite automotive themed watch? I am quite partial to the Jaeger AMVOX and the Omega Speedmaster series. [I found the above image on the Tumblr page of TheAutoInsider and it got my mind thinking about watches.
