Over the previous few years, TAG Heuer has set up a progression of associations in the realm of football/soccer: brand ministers (Mats Hummels… ), titles (Premier League, LFP, LaLiga, Bundesliga, Major League Soccer…) and a few clubs, including Manchester United, perhaps the most well known and fruitful games groups on the planet. Brought into the world 140 years prior, Manchester United has won 66 prizes including no less than 20 English association titles! For its third season as the team’s official watch, TAG Heuer is dispatching two new special editions in the casing of the ‘Red Devils’ United States visit this mid year: a Carrera Heuer 01 and a Formula One.
The Carrera Heuer 01 Chronograph we are going involved with is a liveliness of the 43mm form introduced at Baselworld 2017 (editor’s note: the Carrera Heuer 01 was presented in 2015 first with a 45mm case , the 43mm rendition was presented in 2016 of every a ‘customary’ adaptation, continued in 2017 by skeletonized-dial versions). It is youthful, forceful, energetic and with genuine horological content, fueled by the Heuer 01 section wheel programmed chronograph. As you would expect for a Manchester United special edition, this new model highlights the group’s tones with striking red differentiating on anthracite grey.
As with all watches in the Heuer 01 assortment, the case is a particular development. For this special edition, all parts are made of steel: the development holder, the carries and the tachymeter bezel. The crown is rubberised and the chronograph pushers are featured in red (start/pause) and dark (reset). The water-opposition is of 100m.
Inside is the type Heuer 01, a section wheel chronograph delivered in-house at the Chevenez make. Running at 28,800 vibrations each hour, it has a 50-hour power save (40 hours with the chronograph working). It is noticeable dial side and at the back of the watch, albeit halfway covered up by the Manchester United logo moved on the display caseback. The extensions are embellished with Geneva stripes, the rotor is darkened and the section wheel is featured in red.
The chronograph has a 6-9-12 format with rhodium-plated and snailed chronograph moment and hour counters, separately at 12 and 6 o’clock, and a silvered little seconds counter with red/white Manchester United logo at 9 o’clock. The date is appeared at 3h30. The skeletonised dial is dark gold-plated with rhodium-plated glowing numerals. It is combined with radiant hands and outlined by a 60-second spine, all featured in red.
This special edition Carrera is worn on a red punctured elastic tie got by a security collapsing clasp.
A commendable decision in the event that you are an aficionado of the Red Devils or essentially prepared for an energetic/specialized watch with an intense, particular character. The Carrera Heuer 01 Manchester United retails for CHF 5,500 or EUR 5,200. For more data, kindly visit www.tagheuer.com .
