The Cadillac V-Series high-performance sub-brand turns 20 years old in 2024, and the luxury marque kicked off its year-long celebration earlier this year at the IMSA race at Sebring. As part of the festivities, Cadillac has been periodically releasing V-Series-themed surprises and products, the latest of which is a watch inspired by V-Series styling.
The V-Series Classic Chrono watch can be ordered in three colors, borrowing the red, blue and gold hues from the “racing Mondrian” V-Series insignia. Only 20 of each watch color are available, making them a hot commodity for V-Series enthusiasts. The watches feature Swiss automatic movement with self-winding and mechanical winding, and the displays include the time, day and date with 25 jewels movement. The watch face is a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating, and the timepiece is water resistant, withstanding up to five atmospheres.
“A stunning chronograph, boldly inspired by the V-Series emblem and performance cues,” reads the description for the watch. “Custom designed to celebrate the V-Series 20th Anniversary. Limited to 60 watches – numbered 1-20 in emblem signature colors. Hand assembled with Swiss automatic movements in Detroit; the birthplace of Cadillac.”
Because of the exclusivity, interested customers should note that the watches cost $3,500 apiece.
The watches join a host of other Cadillac V-Series 20th anniversary goodies, such as three special edition Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing models known as Elevation, Impact and Arrival. Each vehicle features a unique, exclusive color, along with bodyside graphics and V-Series accents interspersed throughout.
Also as part of the anniversary celebration, fans of racing games will be able to drive the Cadillac V-Series.R race car in the forthcoming Forza Motorsport installment. The race car will also be featured on the video game’s cover art.
