If a mere standard issue Rolex Daytona isn't exciting enough for you, consider this reimagined option from the horological heads at Artisans de Genève.

Made in collaboration with race car driver Juan Pablo Montoya, the 18k solid gold watch is finished with a tachymeter bezel machined out of a forged carbon block and a custom skeleton dial for a look that feels right at home amongst extremely fast cars, the gentlemen who race them, celebratory bottles of champagne, and beautifully dressed people.

Only 42 examples of the "La Montoya" Gold will be made in Switzerland with a price tag of $70,000 apiece, so head to their official website stat if you want to get on the list. Most custom Rolex watches come off as a tasteless attempt to bling out your wrist, but this feels like an obvious extension of the brand, much like the remixed luxury timepieces from Bamford Watch Department or Singer Vehicle Design's artful takes on classic Porsches.
