Tag Heuer and Aston Martin partnership inspires special edition watches
- Two new chronograph models.
- Paying tribute to Aston Martin racing and Aston Martin Street cars .
- Tag Heuer has a long history in automotive racing, as does Aston Martin
Swiss watchmaker Tag Heuer created two new chronographs in tribute to Aston Martin. The Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre Heuer 01 and the Tag Heuer Formula 1 timepieces celebrate Aston Martin sports cars and Aston Martin racing cars respectively.
Tag Heuer took care to incorporate the British luxury automotive maker’s design details with the Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre Heuer 01 chronograph. Lugs come shaped like the body of an Aston Martin and the skeletonized movement is visible beneath a hexagonal pattern on the black opalin dial that represents details of an Aston Martin Vantage grille. The sides of the 45-mm timepiece have lines reminiscent of the speed lines of a race track and the chronograph pushers resemble a car engine’s piston
The Tag Heuer Formula 1 chronograph features a quartz chronograph—accurate to a tenth of a second—in 43 mm steel case with a notched steel bezel and an aluminum ring with a tachymeter scale. The indexes (in gray Super-Luminova), seconds hand, and Aston Martin winged-logo are designed in the automotive brand’s signature lime shade. “Aston Martin Special Edition” is also engraved on the caseback, along with the Aston Martin logo.
