The folks at CB750Four.us – an online accessory shop for the world’s first mass-produced four-cylinder motorcycle, the CB750 – have released a new stainless steel wristwatch – the Classic Ride Edition.The watch’s face is designed to mimic the speedometer of the Honda CB 750, and is available in two versions – either mph or kmh.
Contrary to the classic mechanical speedometer of the CB 750 Four, the Classic Ride Edition Honda CB750 watch is powered by a high-precision Swiss Part quartz movement.The green dial mirrors the legendary design of the CB 750 speedometer with white markings from 0 to 140 mph on the version with a scale in miles and from 0 to 220 km/h in the version that displays kilometers per hour. Following the style of a classic odometer, lettering that reads “00750.0” documents the inspiration of this timepiece.The “trip meter” displays “000.4” and hints of course at the bike engine’s four cylinders. The large stainless-steel case has a diameter of 43 millimeters and shows the speedometer design to full advantage. The exclusive design is rounded out by a black leather watchband with stainless-steel clasp.The high-quality CBX speedometer Honda CB750 watch is made in Germany, and available exclusively online at CB750four.us, and sells for EUR 119 (about $130 US).
This week, Senior Editor Nic de Sena rides the all new Ducati Monster. Big changes have been made by Ducati–has the company ruined the considerable heritage of the iconic Monster–or are the changes worth it?
