BMW M Power Chronograph Watch by Tourneau

Im not a big watch guy but saw this a local dealership and thought it was pretty nice. I could use a nice wrist watch so I figured Id pick one up... What do you guys think about these?






Leaning more towards the first one.

Disagree - the second one is a beauty, very clean. First one way too busy.

How much and where can they be purchased?

If you must the first one but I would advise against it. I bought my ///M3 hat in 2004 when I bought my first m3 and it's still sitting in my closet.

Use your money on something else bro.

Does the redline in the second one move with rising temps? And, why does it rev up to just 5500 rpms? I don't think these are real Ms.

Question? How much are these watches in the US? I saw them at the dealership today, here in Germany, they are a bit pricey I think??!!

NOTE: Offering to send parts and/or items from Germany to USA, if any1 needs something from Germany that they cant get in the US. Let me know..

American in Germany!

Well they can be seen as a bit pricey for a non-big name watch, but I see them for more of a nostalgic collectors value for people who love the M brand
I don't know if I would wear it out over other watches

I don't like it. Besides, I bet it's photo-shopped.

All the others look pretty cool. Didn't know they had them. Do you think that there's a comfort access model that won't work unless you carry your key with you?

No offense to anyone but those are pretty ugly.

It's a shame that BMW has no good watch partnerships.


Bentley has Breitling

Ferrari has Panerai

Aston Martin has Jaeger LeCoultre

Mercedes has TAG (via McLaren)

Various F1 drivers have watch deals with Audemars Piguet (the Montoya rose gold is insane)

BMW has... what appear to be swatch knockoffs.

BMW would be wise to establish partnerships with Omega for BMW branded vehicles and with Patek for Rolls Royce.

I don't count BMW oracle since it has nothing to do with cars.
