Many watch guys are also car guys. Can you help it? As mechanical marvels, cars and watches are probably two of men’s greatest toys. So when a company comes out with a highly detailed desk clock that looks like a classic car from the 1950s, they might as well just take our money.

If you had a toy car as a kid, the Time Fast D8 Mechanical Clock from L’Epée 1839 may do more than just keep time. This highly decorated kinetic sculpture displays the hours and minutes as a constantly changing race number that graces the side of a scaled-down 1950s Grand Prix racer. Packed inside this replica is an in-house mechanical caliber 1855 MHD movement clock with an impressive 8-day power reserve — hence the name D8.

The Time Fast D8 Mechanical Clock makes an ultra-fine plaything, complete with a driver in the cockpit before a three-spoke, racing-style steering wheel. For an extra dose of whimsy, you wind the clock’s motor just like you wound wind a pull-back toy car.
