Assuming you're not tracking the car, the BBK is out. At $10k+ for a premium watch, it's more about jewelry than about being an accurate timepiece or deep water resistance. With this in mind, there are many more attractive (and more desirable) watches at that price point. Personal tastes vary widely on watches like this, but, I personally think the Panerai 292 is very plain looking. Those who know the brand (which will be very few) will be impressed. Most everyone else will not. If you're looking for status amongst a select group, buy the watch. Otherwise (and assuming your M3 is not a track car), buy neither and bank the cash.
