In many cases, watch manufacturers create pieces that tailor to the automotive industry and even specific cars altogether. Makes and Movements will be selecting spectacular supercars available through duPont Registry and pairing them with current or pre-released watches. The diversity of both the vehicles and timepieces will shed light on different brands and help educated on new areas of each industry.
Land Rover Defender 110 By Fusion Motors
The Land Rover Defender was first introduced to the world in the 1980s as a British four-wheel drive off-road vehicle. Some of the Defenders since being produced have survived all these years and are being restored to their original condition. Although the design and styling will be forever timeless, there are some areas that the Land Rover could use some love. More specifically, the interior as well as the powertrain, and Fusion Motors of Los Angeles, California knows exactly how to fix that. The company operates with a fundamental philosophy of bespoke expertise, exemplifying craftsmanship, and trailblazing design.
Fusion Motors continues to perfect the recipe for the best Land Rover Defender 110 builds using comfortable custom interior options and a 430hp Corvette LS3 crate engine, to bring the 1992 chassis back to life. Along with the most obvious changes, Fusion Motors also fits each build with modern amenities such as an upgraded sound system, air conditioning, heated seats, etc. The Defender by Land Rover will continue to be a collector’s example, but with the updated goodies by Fusion Motors, it is a chassis that can also enjoy the road without a worry.

Eberhard & Company Scafograf 300
Eberhard & Company continues to operate as a luxury hand-crafted timepiece manufacturer, since its beginning in 1887. The inspiration to master the sense of timekeeping using current technology and design with a desire to move forward is the way that Eberhard & Co. structured its process. The drive to continuously adapt to the world around the industry is something that transfers into the automotive world. Whether it is a luxury watch or a high-end vehicle, satisfaction for the past does not end when a new model is released but instead celebrated as a milestone on the timeline of a never ending journey of producing a quality product.
In the 1950s, the world was intrigued by the idea of the sea and exploring the mysterious depths. It was also a time when Eberhard & Co. presented the public with the original Scafograf collection, the model dedicated to the pursuit of an adventure of land, sea, and any other elements that stood in its way. The model continues its legacy seven decades later with the 2020 Eberhard & Co. Scafograf 300, a 43mm stainless-steel self-winding diver’s watch. A luminescent dial fitted with a helium escape chamber and 300m water resistance makes this piece a functional tool for daily use. The classic styling of the Scafograf paired with either the black rubber strap or matching steel bracelet can be dressed for all occasions.
