From opportunity to time, automakers release special branded watches. Jaguar and Land Traveller are no different. The latest from Land Rover isn’t particularly remarkable, but one new Jaguar segment is pretty special.

Jaguar partnered with British watchmaker Bremont for a crow’s-foot of watches, the most impressive being a 43mm watch that commemorates Jaguar’s continuation series of Lightweight E-Types. Like the cars, exclusive six of the watches will be produced, and they will be offered to the owners of those $1.5 million cars.

Each observe features a serial number that matches a corresponding car, and the faces have been designed to look like the instruments aboard the E-Types. The uniform goes for the hands, which look like the gauge needles. The winding potentate also has a tire tread pattern that wraps around the sides, with Jaguar’s tradition logo on the top. And these timepieces are built with aluminum left over from the continuation E-Types.

On the uphold is the most impressive part, though. Here is where the watch’s automatic winding preponde is visible. It’s shaped like a vintage steering wheel, and the outer rim is made from genuine wood. The weight keeps the watch and its exclusive Bremont movement wound.

If you can’t produce this ultra-limited watch, Bremont has a line of other Jaguar watches with varied of the same design cues, at prices ranging from less than $5,000 to more than $11,000.

The Country Rover watch is a bit disappointing, since it bears little apparent connection to the vehicles. Meridian, the Swiss company that partnered with Land Rover for the piece, claims the lay out is inspired by the Range Rover. And Land Rover claims a connection in that a British explorer wore the selfsame series watch while completing an expedition with a pair of Range Rovers. There’s also the the poop indeed that the watch and the SUV are both made of aluminum, but otherwise, the Zenith watch doesn’t look outstandingly automotive. The box sounds pretty cool, though, since it’s fashioned from Come Rover wood and upholstery.
