Extremely Rare March LAB Shelby Cobra Watch - 50th Anniversary Timepieces


50th Anniversary Shelby Cobra Swiss Automatic Timepiece

Limited edition series with only five remaining in the US, available exclusively at Watchismo.com

MARCH LA.B’s exclusive AM3 50th Anniversary Shelby Cobra Timepiece commemorates the evolution of a legendary vehicle, alongside the release of Shelby American’s own 50th Anniversary Limited Edition CSX8000-series Cobra. Just like its iconic model, only 50 timepieces will be produced.

This collaboration between SHELBY and MARCH LA.B marks the second limited edition project celebrating the hallmarks of a classic style and performance.




A common passion for these values has led to an unprecedented effort to produce a timepiece that captures not only the Shelby performance and spirit, but also its 60’s heritage that saw the first Cobra cars coming to life.
The Shelby Cobra took the sports car world by storm when it was introduced in 1962. Shelby American took the AC “Ace” chassis, inserted a small block Ford engine and re-engineered the car to handle the additional power. On the track, the Cobra defeated sports cars from Jaguar, Chevrolet, Porsche, and others. Fact is, CSX2000 is the first Shelby Cobra ever built and quite possibly the most valuable American sports car in the world today. Shelby honors this icon with a 50th Anniversary Limited Edition CSX8000-series Cobra. Only 50 vehicles have been produced. Exclusive CSX serial numbers have been reserved, from 8950 though 8999.

The AM3 50th Anniversary Shelby Cobra Timepiece is encased in a black chassis, and set against a matte black dial with custom engraved Shelby Cobra Anniversary logo and Carroll Shelby signature in gold. The burgundy dial details and lined strap suggest the Cobra’s wine colored interior.
