TAG Heuer Formula 1 Chrono Manchester United Special Edition
TAG Heuer just launched a streamlined and sporty steel Chronograph in the Manchester United's colours.
TAG Heuer and Manchester United have unveiled their first, official club Special Edition watches at an event held at Old Trafford. Attended by Jean-Claude Biver, TAG Heuer CEO and President of the LVMH Watch Division, and Richard Arnold, Manchester United Group Managing Director, the event – held in the Club’s Old Trafford Megastore – saw a crowd of fans gather to be the first to view the exclusive watch collection. To add to the excitement, fans were greeted by club captain, Wayne Rooney, as well as first team players Zlatan Ibrahimovic, David De Gea and Ander Herrera, who made a surprise appearance at the store to present the watch collection.
We are focusing today on the Formula 1 Chrono Manchester United Special Edition. Made from steel covered in black PVD, this quartz chronograph inspired by football features a notched, black titanium carbide bezel with a tachymeter scale. The hour and minute hands and the baton indices are made from black gold with white SuperluminovaTM for optimal readability. The Arabic numeral 12, in red lacquer and located at 12 o’clock, contrasts with the opaline black dial, echoing the colours of Manchester United.
In striking white, the TAG Heuer logo at 12 o’clock and Manchester United logo positioned on the counter at 6 o’clock stand out particularly clearly. The date, meanwhile, is positioned at 4 o’clock on a white disc. The screw-down case is engraved with the Manchester United logo. Finally, the bi-injection rubber strap also references the English club’s colours, black and red. Thanks to the 1/10 second hand, which completes one revolution of the counter positioned at 6 o’clock every second, this chronograph is not just a pleasure to look at, it is also one of the best value watches on the market, with accomplished finishes to honour that most prestigious of clubs, Manchester United. It will certainly delight the 659 million Manchester United supporters worldwide, and meet their high demand.
Over 150 years of watchmaking savoir-faire and technical innovation have made TAG Heuer a global reference in avant-garde sports watches.
