BMW sold special M coupe watches that looked like the speedometer on the original European S50 M coupe. At the time they were originally sold in the US, they retailed for $60.86r. They were made by Tourneau. Each watch was numbered on the back case. The first run of watches was a batch of 1600 pieces and the second run was a batch of 7500 pieces.
Equally rare, if not more so, there were Z3 Individual watches that exactly matched the face of the analog clock on the LCI Z3 roadsters and coupes, available with blue or red leather bands. There was at least 1 run of these watches, limited to 5000 pieces (anyone have other data, please let me know!)
|Yes, at one time LeatherZ sold a lot of watches.|
UPDATE: Someone wrote to me about this blog post and asked what I knew about another design of M coupe watch... an automatic one. Pic below. I will say this: this watch never appeared in the US Lifestyle catalogs. I cannot see a BMW part number on it. It may be real and it may have only been sold in other countries, but I doubt it.
|M coupe automatic ? watch. I cannot validate its authenticity.|
