ASTON MARTIN EDITION
TAG Heuer, the new watchmaking partner for the famous carmaker dear to James Bond, has released two sports-oriented watches with an elegant design. Start them up!
TAG Heuer is now the official partner and official watch for Aston Martin Racing, and has brought out the first timepieces devoted to the alliance. Both models naturally have all the technical assets of the Swiss brand’s sports watches and can be customised with the help of aesthetic details taken from the world of the famous UK brand. The first is based on the chronograph Carrera Calibre Heuer 01 with the addition of luxury features from the car-racing world. The skeletonised dial features “hexagon“ patterns recalling the imposing radiator grill on the latest version of the Vantage sports car. At the top, the two companies’ logos sit side by side. The 45mm-wide case has been redesigned for the occasion and is encircled with a tachymetric bezel made of black ceramic. The lug design also takes inspiration from the curves of a sports car. All the time features are “driven” by an automatic movement.
The second model is based on the Formula 1 chronograph. Here, the hour markers, second hand and the famous winged logo are in Aston Martin Racing’s special “lime-essence“ colour, standing out perfectly against the black dial. This model, built around a 43mm-wide steel case, houses a quartz movement that can measure split times down to 1/10th of a second.
The two Aston Martin special editions are worn with a matt leather strap with special patterns, ideal for showing off your English style!
