Carbon fiber is being used in a number of high-end watches, like the Bell & Ross watches we’ve written about in the past. It’s a unique feature that allows a watchmaker to differentiate themselves from other companies. That’s where designer John Pszeniczny comes into play for his Montre F1/Carbon GMT watch concept which he designed:
The watch is inspired by an F1 car, utilizing a variety of materials you’d find on the car itself; rubber, carbon fiber, and metal. On top of that, you’ll find Swarovski crystals, and 18 rubies that represent the 18 different F1 tracks around the world. Speaking of the 18 F1 tracks, the digital display can show the time at any of those tracks. On top of that, it also features a lap time function and a stopwatch.
This unique piece will run you well into the 5 figure range. I’ve read anywhere from $20,000-$40,000.
