Oct 07, 2010
The TAG Heuer 300 SLR Calibre 1887 Chronograph watch is created for those who appreciate appealing design and utmost precision.

The new TAG Heuer watch pays tribute to Juan Manuel Fangio, a legendary driver of the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR. The great driver became the symbol of a golden age of motor racing. The timepiece also celebrates a successful partnership between TAG Heuer and Mercedes-Benz.

The appearance of the TAG Heuer 300 SLR Calibre 1887 Chronograph has been inspired by the 1950s, a period of elegance and groundbreaking design decisions. The brown face of the watch demonstrates a refined retro style. The heart of the watch is the in-house Calibre 1887 chronograph automatic movement, a guarantee of supreme precision, which allows the watch’s owner to start chronograph functions at remarkable speed - within 2/1000ths of a second.

The screw-in case-back of the new TAG Heuer watch holds a nice surprise – it reveals an engraving of the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR. It also displays a limited edition number. The timepiece is 100-meter water-resistant.

The case of the TAG Heuer watch measures 41 mm in diameter and is crafted in polished steel. Its flange features a tachymeter scale. The dial shows the time with help of hand-finished hour and minute hands provided with luminescent markers. It is completed with luminescent, hand-applied indexes embellished with stylish orange detailing. You will notice a vintage Heuer logo at 3 o’clock.

The retro look of the timepiece is further enhanced by a brown perforated leather strap, featuring appealing orange lining and fitted with a clasp with a Heuer logo.

The chronograph functions are presented via two sub-dials - hours at 6 o’clock and minutes at 12 o’clock. As for the running seconds, they are featured at 9 o’clock. The date window is found at 6 o’clock.

The TAG Heuer 300 SLR Calibre 1887 Chronograph watch will be available in a limited edition of 3000 pieces.
