Silver Arrow concept watch by Fabien Cacheux – Click above for high-res image gallery

If you're going to make a supercar, you're going to need the watch to go with it. It's what upscale customers have come to expect. But while Mercedes-Benz has collaborated with a number of watchmakers in the past, it has yet to release a timepiece to accompany its new flagship, the SLS AMG.

That's where Faibein Cacheux comes in. The budding French industrial designer has penned the concept watch you see here to compliment the Gullwing supercar. It features a tourbillon movement rotating around a central hub with a power reserve meter at six o'clock, all housed in a titanium case and affixed with a neoprene strap. And like Jaeger-LeCoultre's Aston Martin transponder, it incorporates buttons to open and close the doors remotely. '

Unfortunately the watch is just a concept at the moment, but if Mercedes could display the fortitude to bring the SLS to market, maybe it could do the same for the Silver Arrow concept watch.

      I love watches but I don't understand why such a big deal is made of them and why they are so expensive. The profit lines must be crazy on these luxurious watches! It is just a watch, centuries old technology.. I would gladly buy one of these watches for 100-200 at most since they look so nice but the thousands they charge, there is just no excuse. Honestly the big promotion of these crazy expensive watches just seem like a joke!

      To me, this seems a lot like wearing a wearing an Iron Maiden t-shirt to an Iron Maiden concert. You don't want to be that guy.

      It would be great if it started the car like the key FOB does.Then a Mercedes watch would be relevant to Me.

      I don't care either. Stop with the PR for watch companies.
