The interface between TAG Heuer (and beforehand Heuer) and engine hustling doesn’t should be exhibited any longer… From the production of dashboard instruments to the Carrera chronograph, trailed by a variety of F1 or sports vehicle enlivened watches (most named after celebrated race tracks), to wind up with the brand’s current sponsorship of the Red Bull F1 group , engine hustling made the brand what it is today. Also, for the most recent edition of the unbelievable Carrera, things are not going to change. Meet the new TAG Heuer Carrera Indy 500 Special Edition.
The brand has quite recently delivered a programmed special edition chronograph to honor this unbelievable race, so how about we investigate the TAG Heuer Carrera Indy 500 Special Edition and its gesture to dashing history.
This most recent commemorative piece is an esthetically changed 41mm Carrera Caliber 16 Day-Date programmed chronograph with Indy 500 plan signs. The 41mm 316L cleaned hardened steel case includes a dark earthenware fixed bezel tachymeter with INDY 500 imprinted in red at 1 o’clock (supplanting a white TACHYMETRE on the standard model). A sapphire gem with twofold enemy of intelligent coatings covers the dial and the steel caseback has a custom Indy 500 etching with block foundation, and May 26, 2019 (race date) and 103rd (latest race number) are engraved also. The crown and pushers are unaltered from the standard model and the watch is water-impervious to 100 meters.
The dark opaline dial has white chronograph sub-dials, date and rhodium-plated glowing files, differentiating great for eminent decipherability (especially in direct daylight during a race). The special edition has the Indianapolis Motor Speedway logo focused in the 6 o’clock sub-dial. The outlined date window at 3 o’clock is unaltered with CARRERA printed above and Caliber 16 underneath in white, and TAG Heuer’s logo to the left.
The development is the Caliber 16 programmed, in light of the ETA 7750. It has 25 gems, beats at 28,800vph (4Hz) with a 42-hour power save. TAG Heuer’s custom rotor highlights Geneva stripes, however the development is taken cover behind the strong steel caseback. Numerous other Carrera pieces utilize the Caliber 16 as well.
The tie is unaltered from the standard model, being a race-propelled punctured dark calfskin leather with red sewing. It complements the dial well and truly completes the dashing vibe. The lash includes a cleaned hardened steel collapsing clasp.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Indy 500 Special Edition retails for EUR 4,350 (slightly more than the standard model at EUR 4,200) and will be accessible around the world. A subsequent watch, the Formula 1 Indy 500 Special Edition, is dispatching adjacent to the programmed and highlights a bigger 43mm case and quartz development (EUR 1,500). The two watches will be bundled in restricted edition boxes. More data can be found at TAG Heuer’s site .
