Official description

The NISSAN GT-R 50th Anniversary model pays homage to the race-car version of the Skyline 2000 GT-R, and is available until the end of March 2020. The watch design takes inspiration from the GT-R’s iconic blue color, known to car enthusiasts as ‘Bayside blue’, which is reflected in the blue of the ceramic outer case. This ceramic and the inner case made by light high-intensity titanium protects the watch from scratches while fitting comfortably on the wrist and delivers 10 bar water resistance. The NISSAN racing livery with its distinctive white stripe is reflected in the white crocodile strap and the silver white color of the dial, creating a perfect aesthetic harmony with the blue of its ceramic case. The Spring Drive movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back and the GT-R anniversary emblem in 18k yellow gold is set into the oscillating weight to symbolize the watch’s enhanced accuracy level of ±0.5 seconds per day. The stopwatch measures elapsed time for up to twelve hours and is the perfect caliber with which to celebrate the twin anniversaries of Spring Drive and the NISSAN GT-R.
