Quality cars and quality watches often go hand-in-hand and to that end, Aston Martin and TAG Heuer have revealed their latest collaborative effort. Meet the Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre Heuer 01 Aston Martin Special Edition. Quite the mouthful…
The partnership between the master watchmakers and the sports car proprietor was announced at the Geneva Motor Show back in March. The new TAG is the first collaborative fruit. It’s a hefty 45mm solid steel case with a ceramic black brushed bezel.
Design lines highlight the performance motoring connection. It has a visible movement through the hexagonal-patterned dial – styled as such to resemble details on the new Aston Martin Vantage.
The cost for this most illustrious of luxury amalgams? That’ll be 5,250 of your hard-earned pounds, please and thank you. One thing these two brands do share other than ‘performance, precision and craftsmanship’, is a healthy price tag.
Nevertheless, there’s something quite appealing about having the perfect watch to match your sports car. Perhaps this new timepiece should be offered at a discount with orders of the new Vantage? Food for thought…
“This timepiece is a beautiful reflection of the design language of both Aston Martin and TAG Heuer,” said Aston Martin vice-president and chief creative officer, Marek Reichman.
“Each watch will provide its owner with a taste of the Aston Martin luxury lifestyle where there is attention paid to every detail. They will also enjoy the craftsmanship and build quality that is synonymous with the two brands.”
