The markets for fine timepieces and high-end automobiles attract largely the same demographics, and it's not uncommon for the two to converge to produce watches inspired by cars. Because few things say "precision engineering" quite like a Mercedes-Benz and a handmade Swiss watch, the German automaker previously collaborated with TAG Heuer and IWC, but this time brought it closer to home with German watchmakers Mühle-Glashütte.

The anschluss between Mercedes and Mühle-Glashütte gives birth to the CL Time, a limited edition timepiece of 216, launched to coincide with the market debut of the Mercedes CL-Class. The watch has a brushed-steel case and Louisiana alligator leather strap with butterfly clasp, and features a date indicator, power-reserve meter, 24-hour display and sapphire crystal front and back to view the Soprod calibere 9035 movement. Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH describes the dial as "salmon-coloured", but it looks closer to tan than pink - not that there's anything wrong with buying a pink watch...

The timepiece sells for a hefty €3800, but that shouldn't deter someone enamored enough with the three-pointed star to drop a hundred grand on a new car.

More pics of the watch after the jump.
