The P51 Green Hornet is a limited edition timepiece made from Carroll Shelby’s 1968 Ford Mustang EXP500 prototype, aka ‘Green Hornet’.

Dubbed by Carroll Shelby himself as “the one and only Green Hornet,” this vehicle offers a glimpse into the historical narrative of Ford and Shelby American during the pinnacle of the American muscle car era. Today, it stands as one of the most exceptional and rarest Mustangs ever produced.

While many prototypes met their demise in the jaws of a crusher, the Green Hornet defied fate and returned to the road. Its surplus parts from a meticulous restoration now adorn the dials of the P51 Green Hornet timepieces.

Sporting a striking green-and-gray color palette, the P51 Green Hornet is elegantly presented on the wrist with its double calf leather strap and 42mm cushion case.

Two of a kind

Shelby experimental


Carroll Shelby and Shelby American crafted two experimental Ford Mustang coupes, among them the Green Hornet.

Originally painted Lime Gold, this model was initially designed as a prototype for Ford’s potential nationwide release of the California Special. However, when Ford discontinued the project, the car found its way to Shelby Automotive.

Under Shelby’s supervision, the Green Hornet became a pioneering vehicle, blending various experimental techniques. These innovations included independent rear suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and the groundbreaking Conelec four-barrel computerized fuel injection system, a revolutionary feat in 1968.

Furthermore, the experimental exhaust and intake manifolds employed in the Green Hornet would later become integral components of Ford’s renowned Cobra Jet engine.

Despite assumptions that the Green Hornet met its fate in the crusher after its prototype phase, original records suggest otherwise. While many believed the car had been “disposed of,” implying it had been crushed, it was ultimately discovered that the vehicle had been sold, thus ensuring its survival.

Brought back to

Former glory


Restored to its initial experimental brilliance under the stewardship of Barrett-Jackson CEO Craig Jackson, the Green Hornet underwent a monumental restoration effort aimed at reassembling all its experimental features. This iconic vehicle offers a glimpse into the dynamic landscape of Ford and Shelby American during the peak of the American muscle car era.

Dubbed by Carroll Shelby himself as “the one and only Green Hornet,” it has since earned a place as one of the most extraordinary and rare Mustangs in automotive history. The Green Hornet embodies a pivotal period of innovation and boldness in the American automotive narrative. The Shelby team crafted a testament to the legendary late 1960s era at Shelby American, a defining chapter of Mustang history.

Led by Craig Jackson and Jason Billups, the restoration project sought to restore the car to its prototype specifications, even fabricating experimental components. Surplus sheet metal from this restoration effort was repurposed for the P51 Green Hornet watch.

Tribute to a

A True Original


Crafting a timepiece that pays homage to both the timeless design and rich history of one of the most legendary Mustangs ever produced posed an exhilarating challenge.

Our objective was to unveil an electrifying, next-generation addition to our esteemed P51 Collection, replete with design elements that would immediately resonate with avid Mustang aficionados.

Throughout the entire process, our focus remained on integrating a plethora of nods to the iconic Shelby Green Hornet.

With a dial fashioned from reclaimed sheet metal sourced from the vehicle itself, the watch seamlessly incorporates numerous distinctive features of the Green Hornet into its case, strap, and dial. These include a crown meticulously crafted to mirror the hubcaps, a strap stitching pattern directly inspired by the seats, and taillight motifs delicately laser-engraved onto the case’s side.

Splitit installment payments at 0% interest: How does it work exactly?

Splitit allows you to split the total payment over a maximum of twelve months using your credit card. This service is free, involves no credit checks or applications, and means you can choose to split your payment into monthly installments.

To use this payment method all you need a credit card with a sufficient amount of available credit. Splitit authorizes the total order value—but don’t worry, this is not taken in full when you complete the purchase. At the time of shipping, only the first installment will be charged to your credit card. The remaining balance will be held on your credit card until the final payment has been made. However, a payment authorization for the outstanding amount of your purchase will be held during the full payment period.

After each monthly payment, the amount held from your available balance will be reduced to the new remaining balance (the held amount might appear as “pending”). To ensure that the authorization of your credit card is valid for the entire payment period, the authorization will be renewed every 21 days.

Are there any extra fees involved?

Do I have to maintain the required available credit amount on my credit card?

Yes, you must maintain a sufficient amount on your credit card for both the monthly payment and for the full outstanding amount of your purchase during the full period of the plan. The authorized amount will be charged only in the event that a monthly payment is declined (the authorization hold might appear as “pending” on your credit card bill).

What happens if I return the product?

If you decide to not keep the ordered item(s), upon return of the items we will reimburse the installments that have already been paid and cancel the outstanding payments.
