Equipe is a new, automotive-inspired watch brand with series bearing names such as Dash, Big Block, Hemi and Ball Joint. Born in Detroit, Equipe Watches are geared for those who are passionate about cars and want to wear that passion on their wrist. The brand’s latest marketing venture will make the watches available in the du Pont Registry booth at the important Barrett-Jackson collector car auctions.
duPont Registry is a leading publication among high-end automobile collectors, offering an impressive array of rare, exotic and luxury cars for sale, and the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale is a mecca for auto enthusiasts of all types. For the exhibition, Equipe Watches built a custom display using a mold of an engine block, complete with pistons and manifold. Equipe watches will make their first Barrett-Jackson appearance at the 1st Annual Supercar Meet, June 25 -27 in Orange County, CA. The brand will also be presented at Barrett-Jackson Auctions during the 2010/2011 season.
Cach Equipe line has its own unique body style and is crafted of high-grade 316L surgical stainless steel enclosing Miyota/Citizen movements, with hardened non-glare mineral crystals, screw-down crowns, screw-in casebacks, and luminous hands, markers or dials. All are water resistant to 100 meters and backed by a two-year limited warranty. Equipe watches retail for $299 to $599, with the top-of-the-line Ball Joint selling for $999 due to its extremely high-tech 360-degree movable lugs. For more information, visit www.Equipewatches.com.
