Tag Heuer creates limited edition Monaco timepiece for Porche Club of America's 55th anniversary


Porsche Club of America is turning 55 years old this year and a certain high-end Swiss watchmaker is helping them mark this occasion by producing a special edition 55-piece watch for the world’s largest single-brand club.

The watchmaker is Tag Heuer and, given the rich history between them and the car brand Porsche, it only seems fitting that these two would tie-up again sooner or later. As we’ve mentioned, the special edition Tag Heuer Monaco watch will be limited to only 55 pieces to commemorate the PCA’s 55th anniversary.

If you know your Tag Heuer history, you’ll probably remember how actor Steve McQueen, in his role in the movie Le Mans, used friend and Porsche racer Jo Siffert as his inspiration in his role. At that time, Siffert also happened to be the first driver to be sponsored by a watchmaker, which happened to be Heuer. As part of his role, McQueen decided to wear the brand’s Monaco watch during the filming, after which, improbable as it sounds, the Porsche Tag Heuer collaboration was born.

And so, 55 years after the birth of the Porsche Club of America, the two luxury brands are tying up again to earmark the PCA’s anniversary. This particular watch includes a chronograph and will come with a special dial that has been designed in both red and black rally stripes with the racing number ‘55’ and the PCA’s logo engraved on the back. The special edition watch also comes with a special black leather strap with its own set of racing holes and red stitching.

Needless to say, this particular watch isn’t just for anybody, since only 55 examples will be made. And given the rather exclusivity of the item, it shouldn’t come as any surprise to all of us that the watch comes with a retail price of $5,500.

Yeah, this is not the greatest work of the Tag Heuer though he is a well-known watch maker. He has done some other car theme car for the Porsche except for this one.

BTW,it seems that the spelling of title is wrong..it should be Porsche and not Porche.

With all the watches that I have seen in the car watch section, I can tell that this one is not that great! Still, I have seen other option that have an awesome designed.

Am sure every man would love to own this watch. This timepiece is extraordinary, as it commemorates the Porche Club, Tag Heuer really deserves to be recognized in putting a lot of effort in designing this watch.

Oh no! chronograph again? I think this thing gets lamer! I really don’t get why this watches is listed here in the car section!

I’m not a fan of watches or "chronographs" because I don’t know what they are doing in the car section. However, I have to say that this watch is ugly compare to the latest released of Bentley! 

I like the design of the red one.. the one who has PCA engrave on the glass.

elegant looking wrist watch, this is also a perfect gift for my father on his coming birthday.

The time is also legible in darker conditions thanks to the use of luminous substance on the steel hands and hour markers. Additionally, this Swiss made watch is secured to the wrist by a special black leather strap with racing holes and red stitching that is not available at retail.

wow I’m impressed, I hope they also have a silver wraps variations

simple but elegant looking wrist watch. this is a great LE watches.

All members of the porsche club should have one.. this is a good signature watch or should i say team watch.
