To celebrate the 100th anniversary of "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing," the brand has proudly announced its status as official timepiece of the Indy 500 and released the new Limited Edition Indy 500 Centennial Chronograph watch. It will be awarded to the winner of the event on Sunday, May 29, 2011.
Offered in a limited series of 1000 pieces, the new Tag Heuer watch is set in a 44mm fine-brushed steel case. It demonstrates a fixed polished bezel with a tachymeter scale in black and an inscription "Indy 500" in red. The case is armed with a scratch resistant top sapphire crystal. Its back side marks the 100-year anniversary of the great race. The water-resistance of the case is assured down to 200 meters.
The model reveals a grey stylized dial. It is adorned with a pattern, borrowed from the renowned "Yard of Bricks" start/finish line of the historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Encouraged by a racing car's dashboard, the dial of the new Tag Heuer Limited Edition Indy 500 Centennial Chronograph watch is equipped with hand-applied indexes and luminous hands.
The display ensures central hours and minutes. The small seconds are shown in a counter at 3 o’clock. The chronograph functions are presented through a 30-minute sub-dial at 9 o’clock, a 1/10th of second counter at 6 o'clock and a central seconds hand. The counter at 6 o’clock includes a printed "Indy 500" logo. The date indication appears in the aperture at 12 o’clock.
The new Tag Heuer watch is accompanied by a black rubber strap or a polished steel bracelet.
