Meet the Tag Heuer Formula 1 Chronograph Manchester United Special Edition
Made for greatness
It's a case of titans clashing as Tag Heuer matches up two heavyweights in the form of their Formula 1 Chronograph and football's most famous club, Manchester United. Merged for an incredible presentation of prowess and masculinity, the manufacture has rolled out a striking timepiece in steel-covered black PVD made to honour both fields of esteemed sports. Right off the bat, the 43mm sized watch flaunts a notched, black titanium carbide bezel with a tachymetre scale that surrounds its red-accented dial. Crafted using black opaline, the dial sports a 1/10 second and hour counter at 6 o'clock — boldly emblazoned with the iconic Man U logo in white - a chronograph minute display at 9 o'clock and a small seconds indictor at 3 o'clock.
Delineating this trio of counters is a pair of hands that glow white Superluminova, and an off-centre date display perched at the 4 o'clock mark, as well as Arabic indices highlighted in red lacquer. Powered by a quartz chronograph movement, the Ronda 5040D, the entirety of this special edition Formula 1 Chronograph is defined dynamism, outfitted with bi-injected rubber straps in, what else, red and black club colours with a raised, textured finish that add a element of ruggedness to the watch. Stamped with the Manchester United logo on its brushed steel caseback, this is a piece of fan merchandise that truly carries the weight of prestige football and haute horlogerie combined.
The Formula 1 Chronograph Manchester United Special Edition is available at Tag Heuer boutiques.
