It's not to early to begin Christmas shopping — how about a Mini watch?

(September 30, 2013) MUNICH — A watch is an expression of the wearer’s personality, adding subtle emphasis to his or her style. The new wristwatches in the MINI Lifestyle Collection dazzle with their quality and precision while maintaining an air of sophisticated understatement.

The sporty watches bear the unmistakable stamp of the MINI brand, standing out from the crowd with their original design detail. Now, MINI is presenting five reliable companions for your wrist that are continuing the brand’s tradition of functionality and ease of use.

The MINI Chronograph Watch silver, pictured at left, features a captivating three-dimensional design and a sun-brushed dial with three chronograph eyes and a date indicator. The satin-finish stainless steel case and padded, three-hole leather strap in rally design complete the watch’s sporty look. Wearers can even measure speed with the stopwatch function and the fixed tachymeter scale. This high-quality, analogue watch is waterproof to ten atmospheres and is also easy to see in the dark thanks to its luminous hands and markers.

The black variant  (pictured at right) — the MINI Chronograph Watch black — contains all the same features. This model has a comfortable, durable silicone strap and includes splashes of eye-catching color with its red second hand and push bu
tton. Trademark checkered flag designs feature on the left side of the case and the middle chronograph eye.

 The design inspiration behind the MINI Speedometer Watch is the car itself, as the dial of the analogue watch is modeled on the instantly recognizable MINI speedometer. Extra features include a date indicator, satin finish and part-polished stainless steel case, luminous hands and two interchangeable NATO straps in black/anthracite and black/red stripes. The watch is waterproof to ten atmospheres.

The MINI Weekdays Watch also features the original MINI speedometer design. This sporty analogue watch displays the days of the week in striking orange, and the hands are luminous so the wearer can tell the time even in the dark. The watch has a silicone strap and is waterproof to three atmospheres.

The digital MINI Watch is available in either black or white and is a fashion highlight of the collection. Its square display can serve as a mirror and then, at the press of a button, switch to a red fluorescent display of the time and date. The embossed design of the silicon strap is reminiscent of a checkered race flag. The model can be customized to its individual wearer thanks to the interchangeable clasps that come in white, black, red and lime green.

All watches as well as several other new additions to the MINI Lifestyle Collection are available from September in selected MINI stores and online at
