The showpiece of the 2017 Baume & Mercier’s Clifton Membership collection is the Shelby Cobra CSX2299 Small Release – the latest timepiece borne of the brand’s partnership with the Carroll Shelby Company and the first ever to debut within the Clifton family. The watch pulls its motivation from the Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe (CSX2299), one of the very most iconic vehicles in the past history of American motorsports. The Daytona Coupe was the first American car to earn, in 1964, the a day of Le Mans, and brought America its first GT course World Sportscar Tournament in 1965.
