Does anyone own one of these particular watches? A gentleman by the name of Joe Fiorello, from a FordGT Facebook page, reached out to me with an offer to buy one of these. I love my watches but am very skeptical about something like this being just a way over priced novelty item, vice a nice commemorative edition timepiece, Especially at $4-5K. I do like the design, but because they are not necessarily a reputable brand watch, I'm very hesitant to take the leap. Thanks for any info you might have!

No clue on that brand, but I can tell you that the ETA 7750/Valjoux movement is very well regarded and is used (or has been used) by IWC, Breitling, Panerai, Omega and many other brands. Not a super high end movement, but very reliable and serviceable. Just my 2c

Kind of look like the watches on the Superformance website.

A couple guys started pushing those on Facebook a few months ago. Yes, they seem to be the same as those on Superformance with more color options. Sounds like they will be selling clothes and accessories soon as well. The watch is a little pricey, but interested to see what else they come up with.

For someone who’s not a watch guy. You seem pretty knowledgeable

Specracer knows a lot about many things. It doesn't surprise me he knows about watches. You should hang out with him more often Roketman.
