    Other than it needs to show 206 mph and not 0 on the face. Looks nice otherwise.

    its on ebay.. I won an auction for this same watch a few weeks and they never shipped it..eBay refunded my money.
    It actually had SRT10 on it and I advised them it should only be SRT..they changed it to SRT yet they didnt ship it...

    if you pay or bid more than a few dollars you paid too much as is $ 16.00 shipping

    It looks cool but Im sure its a junk watch..... wish some one would make a quality watch like this...

    Generic junk watch with a digital print of whatever they want to put on the face. Save your dollars for something nice.

    Would be sweet if a high quality SRT watch like this came in the glovebox with every GTS Viper sold. I like it...Just which it was a big face watch.

    I've been looking around for a good quality Viper watch, can't find anything :(

    Ferrari licence some really nice chronograph watches, Maserati also have some great fashion watches. BRM produce some fantastic designer watches with a rather large price tag!
    A few years ago Snake oyl advertised some Chrono watches made by the Spanish company Festina, this company is currently producing Tour De France watches. I'm sure if someone from SRT contacted the company they could come up with something? I would love a Chrono watch with something to do with the Le mans series GTSR cars...... ;)

    The watch above looks very cheap :(

    Blancpain does some watches for Lamborghini if memory serves.

    Would be nice to see a quality Tag Heur watch made for the Viper. Titanium watch with the Stryker logo etched on the back and clasp etc.....Id say around $500 or more to buy it by itself or get it thrown in with a new GTS Viper.....

    Viper licensed stuff has always seemed a little few and far between. I know my mom just wanted a sweatshirt and couldn't hardly find anything. Found something simple that she likes, but we're pretty sure it's not actually licensed, just a screenprint that someone did on a generic jacket.

    Yes, and they made the car too ! A friend has one in Quebec. It's a special Track only series (about 27 made) based on a Trofeo R, all carbon fiber body with only one seat.
    I was following him when going to the track last summer

    Be patient, you could cancel your order and pick one up at a dealer... or just wait for yours which you may get when the '14 models come out. :lmao:

    I'm a big fan of watches myself. I personally on a few Tag's and a Seiko. The pic of this watch looks great, but after close examination I can see that there are no identifying markings from any reputable watch maker. So more than likely it's a junk jewelry watch maybe worth $25 at the most. I for one; love exquisite watches and wouldn't waste the time buying it unless it came from a reputable maker ( preferably Swiss made ). But I understand the loyalty to the Viper brand and would definitely understand why someone would want to buy this watch. They just need to understand that it's a cheap watch...
    That being said....it would be nice if SRT teamed up with a reputable watch company ( IE: Tag, Rolex...etc ) and come out with an official Viper Time Piece.... :D

    Very very cool. I believe they sponsored the GT1 Lambos too from the FIA series.


    On another note it would be cool is if SRT made each watch with accent piece/pieces that match the color of the car you chose. Of course all this will cost money that would probably be better spent making the Viper better but if they get things in hand and firing on all cylinders [company-wise] it would be a nice touch to see these kinds of little details in the future. They can really add to the specialness of the buying experience and the marque in the long run. Its not necessary but Im sure it would be a welcome little detail by most to have a bespoke watch with your choice of car.

    Maybe a Tag Heur sports chronograph with the SRT model and Tag Heur dressier watch with the GTS lux model...

    Hi folks I have just been granted permission to post on this "august" site. I will not hide behind a "username" or "emoticon" as some do.

    I just wanted to comment on the ironic timing of this thread concerning "watches".

    In my presentations to the SRT team I explained that I had a company (a friend) that designs, engineers and manufactures high quality watches here in Michigan. No not Shinola ! They retail for $5,000 to $20,000 and are very high quality rare collector pieces. A high ranking member of a Western Government, in a senior position, collects them. I made two specific suggestions (not the $7M figure web services company one) for additional funding to the Viper Le Mans team as a b2b opportunity whereby the watch company would return $20% of the retail costs to the team for development.

    This was/is a way that Viper owners could have had a direct stake in supporting the racing and product effort depending what they would be willing to pay for an exclusive Viper watch, I mean very exclusive high end watch ! The two engineering suggestions were rebuffed out of hand, by Ralph, but the funding of course was of interest. I was told to contact the marketing dept, specifically Ms. Pareta (sp). After repeated attempts to set something up, but realizing that they "were completely out to lunch" I quietly withdrew my offer (and the $7M figure race sponsorship money - thank god) as I could see that the watch company would have been "jerked around", and being small and exclusive it would have not been a good financial proposition for them.

    They also make very fine high quality leather "dry goods" by real ranch hands out West, that in the winter months turn their skills form saddle making/repair to high quality leather goods. So these are real authentic quality products, all hand made and stitched.

    So the upshot is - If anyone through this forum would like to participate in a real very high quality Viper watch, through a process of design iteration interaction, pricing suggestions, I would be willing to get this done.

    If anyone would like me to contact me to get this done I will. But it will have to be on a very specific basis, of a down payment into an escrow account fully refundable. This will pay for design time, engineering, the Swiss movement design, tooling costs, etc, and will give the down payee's access to the design and pricing strategy. This will allow me to determine the genuine interest and at what level.

    Let me know your thoughts ! I will then let you know the company, their products, etc, etc.

    Personally I think the pricing of the Ferrari watches is in the right ball park.

    Ian, think the watches you are offering are too expensive! Ferrari is now an established Brand with many retail shops across the world, there are many people that will never be able to afford the Ferrari, but are keen to wear their products. This I believe is where Viper /SRT should be heading.

    I would consider putting money in escrow for a house not a watch that has not been made, by a unnamed company !
