La Cote des Montres - February 9th, 2017

Today, luxury Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer is unveiling the prestigious Heuer-01 steel and ceramic Manufacture Chronograph sporting the club’s colours.

Manchester, 8th February 2017 – Manchester United is off to a strong start this year with its official timekeeper, TAG Heuer. The watch manufacture is proud to unveil the first watches in the colours of the world’s most famous football club today, alongside the players at Old Trafford.

Meet the prestigious Carrera Heuer-01 Manufacture Chronograph, an illustrious special edition in the club’s colours. With a large yet streamlined diameter of 45 mm, this sporty piece has a distinctly contemporary design. Its black skeleton dial and sapphire case-back invite you to admire the stunning mechanism of the Heuer-01 Manufacture Chronograph.

Naturally, the striking red of Manchester United is given pride of place: it features in the club logo at 9 o’clock, the TAG Heuer shield at 12 o’clock on the bezel, the hour, minute and chronograph central second hands, and the red alligator leather strap. This football-inspired piece, made entirely from black PVD-coated steel, features the date at half past three and boasts a black ceramic bezel with an engraved tachymeter scale. It is available with a red strap with black top-stitching or black strap with red top-stitching. The sapphire case-back highlights the Manchester United red devil decal logo. This clever contrast of red and black makes this watch a perfect tribute to that most illustrious of clubs, Manchester United.
