TAG Heuer Cooperates with Hackett

Sep 21, 2010
TAG Heuer has joined efforts with British men's wear designer Hackett London on the creation of two customized timepieces under the Hackett name - the Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph "Hackett" and the Tag Heuer Carrera Watch "Hackett". The models will be available in a limited edition of 100 pieces each starting with November 2010.

The unique collaboration of Hackett and TAG Heuer was born not only on the design aesthetic but also on the mutual values they share - high prestige, top quality, design strength and strong links with sport. Moreover, TAG Heuer watches have long been presented on the UK market.

The designs of the new TAG Heuer watches have been inspired by the Carrera, TAG Heuer's iconic model that enjoys timeless popularity. The Swiss watchmaker's designers have used 'cornflower blue' color, Hackett's favorite, featured on the watches dials and the stitching embellishing the straps. You will often see this color used throughout Hackett's collection, including cufflinks, shirting and tweeds.

The Hackett watches have cases crafted in stainless steel and high-readability black dials. The 3-hand model features a Hackett "H" that substituted the 12 o'clock marker. The hour and minute hands of both models are luminescent and have diamond shaped edges.

The case of the Chronograph measures 41mm in diameter and boasts 100-meter water-resistance, while the case of the watch measures 39mm in diameter and provides 50-meter water-resistance.

The case construction of the Chronograph incorporates a fixed bezel with the tachymeter scale, and the Watch incorporates a polished bezel. The fluted crown is remarkably easy-to-grip.

The dial is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal that allows to drop a glance at the movement. The case back shows an engraving of the individual number.

The Chronograph is equipped with the Caliber 16 automatic chronograph movement, while the Watch accommodates Caliber 5 automatic movement.

The TAG Heuer for Hackett watches are presented on a calfskin strap fitted with a solid folding clasp with safety pushbuttons.
