Is it possible to close the spirit of a legendary car in the form of a watch? This is the question we asked ourselves when we started working on a limited model for Mustang Club Poland. Today, when the watch saw the light of day, we can say with full responsibility for these words: yes it is possible!
At the very beginning of the work, when a particular vision was not yet clarified, we knew one thing. We want the watch to be imbued with the spirit of motoring. One look at it would cause a shot of adrenaline and a vague desire to sit behind the wheel of your Mustang and after turning the key in the ignition, feel the bass murmur of the engine – this overture, known only to automotive fans, to the impressions that are about to come… We knew that in order to achieve such an effect we must turn to someone in the automotive industry experienced more than us. That is why the limited edition Balticus watch we created for Mustang Klub Polska was created in cooperation with Mateusz Przystał – a talented designer, closely related to the automotive industry.
It goes without saying that we didn’t just focus on appearance when creating this model. What? No! A watch for the Mustang Club Poland is, like the car for which it is the tribute, a real beast. In the case with aggressive, sharp edges we closed the proven movement from Citizen – Miyota 9 series. The previously mentioned case of brushed stainless steel (316L) was covered with a durable PVD coating in graphite. To make looking at the Mustang’s clock-style digitalblate a pure pleasure, we covered it with sapphire glass with an additional anti-reflection coating. The watch was got a steel bracelet with full steel links with a butterfly clasp. However, we did not stop there and, as we have already done, we also took care of an additional leather strap. What more can we write? I guess only: Put your foot down!
