Watch and Brand News Tag Heuer Presents The First Aston Martin Special Edition Chronographs

The partnership between Tag Heuer and Aston Martin was just announced yesterday during the International Geneva Motor Show. Today, they release two watches honoring Aston Martin and Aston Martin Racing.

The design of the Tag Heuer Carrera Heuer 01 is inspired by the geometric shapes of the sports cars while the Formula 1 adopts the Racing lime color. These special editions show the collaboration between the two design teams showing off the automotive spirit.

Stemming from the luxury side of Aston Martin, the Heuer 01 chronograph exposes the manufacture movement through the dial. This time the skeletonized dial features a hexagonal pattern recalling the details on the new Vantage from Aston Martin.

The watch features special lines on the side of the stainless steel case, evoking speed, the race track and piston. The lugs have also been reimagined for the model, taking their inspiration from the sleek lines of the bodywork.
