TAG Heuer is putting their watch-making expertise to work by creating a special edition chronograph to celebrate a very important time in history. This year marks the 100th anniversary of “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing,” and in order to celebrate it in style, TAG Heuer has created a special edition TAG Heuer Limited Edition Indy 500 Centennial Chronograph which will be presented to the winner of the Indy 500 on Sunday, May 29, 2011. This chronograph will be produced in a run of 1,000 units, each priced at $1650.

This special chronograph will feature a gray stylized dial patterned after the famed "Yard of Bricks" start/finish line of the historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway and a printed "INDY 500" logo inside the counter at 6 o’’clock. Its distinctive case back marks the 100 year anniversary of the great race. The watch’s dial is inspired by a racecar’s dashboard: a small second at 3 o’clock, a chronograph minutes counter with double hands at 9 o’clock, and a 1/10th of second counter at 6 o’clock. The date window, which is positioned at 12 o’clock, is flanked by hand-applied indexes, as well as luminescent hands and markers for optimum readability.

Fantastic watch for dads! Especially now that Christmas is about to come. I know this is limited but I have a feeling that until now, the watch is on sale. And many dads are buying it.

Hmm, I am a bit surprised that this watch actually didn’t hit the $2K mark. But even if that is not the case, I still can’t help but marvel at the quality of this baby.

This one is really expensive. A very timely piece to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the greatest spectacular in racing. Hey guys, what do you think of this one? Its very stylish and I like the logo inside the counter.

This watch looks tough. That’s the first thing that comes to my mind when I first saw it. But I think the price is too high. I wonder what TAG Heuer is doing to make a certain watch for $1650

Yeah, looking at the car itself I would definitely say the same thing. However,
I still don’t understand why this thing has been a trend in the car industry nowadays.

Well, I think they have used the work of Tag Heuer, as one of the high renounce watch maker, to makes us drool in this car themed watches. Well, looking at the other chronograph that presented here at TopSpeed i would say that this one looks better.

Well, I must admit that I am not really that fond of sports car themed watches, but I would definitely let this one pass. After all, this one is made by Tag Heuer and they are known to make great watches.
