Sport360's reviews of the week.

Show off your passion for sporty driving with these new watches. In the race against time, Ice Watches have launched a premium collection in the livery of the prestigious motor manufacturer, BMW.

A comprehensive range of 16 models share a number of common values, putting design in pole position. The range boasts two-tone straps, synthetic exterior and leather interior.

The chronographs come in sizes Big (48mm) and BIG BIG (57mm), with the classic ‘3-hand’ in sizes of unisex (43mm) and Big (48mm).

Each model features a rugged contoured case in 316 L steel, a knurled steel bezel that resembles a wheel rim and a dial laid out like a dashboard. Around the famous blue and white logo, well-considered details smack of sophistication. This all combines to create a fine watch for BMW fans.
