Ferrari, Bentley, and Aston Martin are among the high-end car makers who have teamed up with renowned watchmakers to create branded timepieces. MINI decided they wanted this too, so they tasked the MINI Lifestyle department to come up with some.
So they launched a couple of different models all at once. As you’d expect, MINI watches are not as glamorous as the models made by famous brands, but they are kinda cool in the same way that a MINI car is kinda cool.
The cream of the crop is the MINI Chronograph Watchsilver featuring three-dimensional design and a sun-brushed dial, satin-finish stainless steel case and padded, three-hole leather strap in rally design. This also comes in black, known as the MINI Chronograph Watchblack, with silicon strap, red second hand and push button.
If you want something more MINI-like, you can get the MINI Speedometer Watch, inspired by the car itself, as the dial of the analogue watch is modeled on the instantly recognizable MINI speedometer. This one features satin finish and part-polished stainless steel case, luminous hands and two interchangeable NATO straps in black/anthracite and black/red stripes. The MINI Weekdays Watch also features the original MINI speedometer design, and has a silicone strap.
You can buy these watches and other MINI Lifestyle goodies, with over 200 products, from their online shop.
