In late 2008, Mercedes-Benz's high-performance wing AMG partnered with Swiss watch manufacturer IWC to produce a very exclusive and limited edition SL roadster. It was hand-tuned and available in an exclusive matte white exterior with a brown napa interior. When the car was purchased, each buyer received a matching IWC Ingenieur timepiece. Only 200 of both the car and the watch were ever created. We spent a week with the car.
The Omega Ranchero was originally released in the late 1950s as something of an entry-level daily wear watch, neither too sporty or dressy. It's unique broad-arrow hands and Explorer dial face coupled with a lack of authentic pieces has made it one of our favorite vintage watches.
