Car Collector?s Corner: A Family?s 1973 Datsun 510 With 18,000 Documented Miles

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

This may very well be the nicest 1973 Datsun 510 in existence. The Datsun 510 was a mechanically bulletproof car. You could argue that it lead the charge in the Japanese invasion of the North American market. Despite their reliability, Datsuns were disposable cars. That’s why this museum caliber 18,000 documented miles 510 is so [...]

Maserati collaborates with Bulgari to create the Octo Maserati timepiece

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

Two heavyweights from their respective industries are collaborating on a special edition time piece that should have auto enthusiasts and watch collectors stand up and take notice.

Italian automaker Maserati and Italian luxury goods retailer Bulgari have joined forces to build the rather flashy and extravagant Octo Maserati timepiece.

The Octo name of the timepiece lends itself to its octagonal shape, which has been enclosed in a steel case that measures 45mm in diameter. Among the striking features of the watch include a scratchproof sapphire crystal, a transparent caseback with the famous Maserati Trident logo, a brushed steel feel with a tachometric scale, a hand-applied octagonal inner bezel ring, a blue-lacquered dial, and a mechanical Calibre GG780 Haute Horlogerie movement.

There’s no word yet on how much the Octo Maserati timepiece will cost, but you only need to look at the two companies – Maserati and Bulgari – that are responsible for this watch to determine that it’s going to cost you a lot more than just a pretty penny.

Maserati collaborates with Bulgari to create the Octo Maserati timepiece originally appeared on topspeed.com on Saturday, 31 March 2012 06:00 EST.
