Car and watch brand relationships have a spotty past, but in recent times they have been getting better - at least in terms of the resulting products.
Hublot (both Zenith and Hublot are part of the LVMH group) has had a lot of success with its official watchmaking relationship with Ferrari, and I've also enjoyed collaborations such as Breitling with Bentley, Ball with BMW, and Bremont with Jaguar.
Today, luxury automobile maker Land Rover and Swiss watch maker Zenith officially announce a new relationship with the debut of the Zenith El Primero Range Rover Special Edition watch collection.
One watch with two different strap options attempts to merge the worlds of both companies, and the result actually feels pretty good.
Their chips work indoor and outdoors, under tree canopies or in canyons, on country roads or beneath sky scrappers.That way the small GPS tracking chip and the cell phone transmission component could be in constant use – giving it its 24/7 real time tracking capabilities. The first is to make this power source solar – so during the day the device works off the sun and then during the night is runs off stored power from during the day.This is probably a less than ideal solution since batteries never seem to have an infinite life cycle – heck, some batteries can’t even last a few months let alone 10-14 years that a dog is alive.I can only see this technology getting smaller and smaller too until one day it fits within a 2.5 mm x 2 mm space.The next technology that would be needed will be some sort of power supply that is renewable and persistent.
That is 0.09843 inches x 0.07874 inches for all those who live in countries that still use the inefficient imperial system.
