GM is planning to commemorate the final model year of the current Chevy Camaro generation with the 2024 Chevy Camaro ZL1 Collector Edition, a limited-run variant of the muscle car’s top trim level, which will have only 350 units produced in total.
In addition, each of the 350 2024 Chevy Camaro ZL1 Collector Edition vehicles will come with a Shinola Canfield Sport 45mm watch.
The Shinola Canfield Sport 45mm wristwatch currently comes in five different face colors and features a polished stainless steel case 45 millimeters in diameter. At this moment, it’s unknown what the version of the watch that will come with the 2024 Chevy Camaro Collector Edition ZL1 will look like.
The special edition watch might come in an exclusive color, possibly matched to one of the available paint colors for the 2024 Chevy Camaro. The wristwatch might also feature a Camaro or Panther logo.
The Canfield Sport wristwatch features sporty styling, a ceramic insert, and a precision Argonite movement. The design incorporates three sub-dials within the main dial, plus a dual calendar aperture that displays the month and day. The watch includes four hands – hour, minute, second, and a fourth hand tipped in a tiny crescent that points to the day of the month printed around the dial’s outer rim.
Shinola, maker of the 2024 Chevy Camaro ZL1 Collector Edition commemorative watch, claims its name comes from the phrase “you don’t know s*** from Shinola,” used in an argument over the company name. Perhaps appropriately for a watchmaker producing a watch for a car company, it is located in the “Motor City” of Detroit.
Shinola operates a 95,000 square-foot production facility in Detroit’s historic Argonaut Building, also known as the A. Alfred Taubman Center for Design Education. The building itself has ties to GM, having been built in the interwar period as the headquarters for Argonaut Realty Corporation, a subsidiary of General Motors. It stands across the street from GM’s former headquarters, Cadillac Place.
Shinola now makes jewelry and operates a hotel, but continues to make high-quality U.S.-made watches as its primary business. These include many special editions, such as the Lake Erie Monster dive watch and now, the 2024 Chevy Camaro ZL1 Collector Edition watch.
Only the ZL1 trim will be paired with the Shinola Canfield Sport 45mm watch, but all trims get a unique front fender script, a panther-themed steering wheel badge, unique floor mats with a laser-etched aluminum Collector Edition logo, and unique black interior fittings.
For the exterior, the 2024 Chevy Camaro Collector Edition gets Panther Black Metallic Tintcoat paint, plus Satin Black accents stripes, 20-inch Satin Black wheels (or optional Polished Forged Wheels), and the front splitter from the 1LE package. Exclusive to the ZL1 trim is the Panther Black Matte (paint code GNW) paint color.
The ZL1 Collector Edition package is priced at $14,995. For the 2024 Chevy Camaro ZL1, which has a base MSRP of $73,695 including destination freight charge, the total price with the Collector Edition package and the Shinola watch adds up to $88,690.
Orders for the 2024 Chevy Camaro opened on June 15th, while production starts in August, as exclusively reported by GM Authority.
