New TAG Heuer And Aston Martin Watch Worthy Of James Bond Himself

With the latest collaboration between Aston Martin and TagHeuer on their creation of the stunning new TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre Heuer 01 Aston Martin Special Edition watch, one thing is for certain - beautiful cars and beautiful watches go hand to hand. Revealed only days ago, the fantastic Tag Heuer watch represents the second watch that the two iconic manufacturers have collaborated on. As always, the design has been heavily inspired by Aston Martin cars and motor racing in general, and this only adds to the exceptional exclusivity of the timepiece.

Comments on the collaboration between the two manufacturers made by one of Aston Martin’s chiefs clearly show how important this collaboration truly is.

Aston Martin Vice-President and Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman said: “This timepiece is a beautiful reflection of the design language of both Aston Martin and TAG Heuer. The collaboration provided a fascinating opportunity for us to work with the creative talents at TAG Heuer to design a product that truly showcased beautiful bespoke craftsmanship that reflects the importance of peak performance. 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.”

So, you may ask, what can a watch and a car have in common. Well, it seems that TAG Heuer designers and magicians went out of their way to tie the watch with the signature Aston Martin design cues the Gydon-based company uses the most.

TAG Heuer did it like this.

Firstly, the “ceramic black brushed tachymeter bezel with Aston Martin engravings” apparently evokes the speed and sophistication of Aston Martin cars. The magnificence of the design is further enhanced with the visible movement that looks a lot like some of the hexagonal pieces reminiscent of the design elements that were employed by Aston Martin on the latest Vantage.

Obviously, the size of the watch has to evoke some kind of prestige as well.

With a 45-millimeter solid steel case, the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre Heuer 01 feels absurdly powerful and sits dominantly on the hand presenting the craftsmanship and evoking the prestige associated with the high-end appurtenances.

Worthy of James Bond, the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre isn’t cheap. Nor is it excruciatingly expensive. The timepiece is available through TAG Heuer retailers, and it is already available for orders.

The TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre Heuer 01 Aston Martin Special Edition watch price is $6,700.

You can order it online or in the store. Well, I guess you will be satisfied with it even if you do not drive an Aston Martin. If you do drive it, this watch is mandatory. Sorry, but it is.

Creative collaboration between two iconic luxury brands produces sought-after collectors’ piece
24 October 2018, Gaydon: The second watch of the collaboration between two of the most iconic brands in motor racing was revealed today with the global release of the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre Heuer 01 Aston Martin Special Edition.

Since announcing their partnership at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, the best creative talents of TAG Heuer and Aston Martin have worked together to create a highly-anticipated timepiece that expresses the brands’ shared values of performance, precision and craftsmanship.

Inspired by the geometric shapes of an Aston Martin sports car, the new watch draws a direct vision from the colours, shapes, patterns and materials of an Aston Martin, and reflects the automotive spirit of the partnership.

The 45mm solid steel case boasts a ceramic black brushed tachymeter bezel with Aston Martin engraving and features lines on the side to evoke speed, the race track and pistons. The manufacture movement is visible through the dial, which is skeletonised in a hexagonal pattern that recalls the details on the new Vantage. Also, exclusive to this timepiece is the reshaped lugs, which were inspired by the iconic lines of Aston Martin’s beautiful bodywork. It is a watch with presence that is the perfect reflection of the expertise and technical mastery arising from the partnership between the two brands.

Aston Martin Vice-President and Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman said: “This timepiece is a beautiful reflection of the design language of both Aston Martin and TAG Heuer.

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.”

In March 2018, it was announced that TAG Heuer would become Official Watch Partner and Connected Watch Partner of Aston Martin and Aston Martin Racing. The TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre Heuer 01 Aston Martin Special Edition is available now from TAG Heuer retailers, in-store and online, at RRP £5,250.
