It is a fun topic of sorts, but mostly for WISes (WIS = watch idiot savant) and watchies (watchie = people who are "into" watches, but who object to being though of as "idiots").

There's at least one thread on WUS covering the topic: .

The topic works well in watch forums because many folks having an interest in watches at least own a car and thus have at least some interest in them. The reverse, though true of some folks on a car forum, is far less assuredly so. Indeed, I can't even say with confidence that even half the people on B-post even regularly wear a watch.

As for the R&T article, it's nifty too. They chose some rather esoteric and/or exotic cars, so it's not as though that many folks are going to have a good enough sense of those cars to actually have a view on what watch make might correspond to them.

FWIW, Sinn seems to me like a reasonable fit for a BMW. But then do a great many other reasonably "well made and slightly less commonly seen" watches than Seikos and Citizens.

I don't own a Sinn, so for myself, I'll say an Omega Constellation Manhattan because, as my daily wear watch, it's the watch I'm most likely to be found wearing.

All the best.
