TAG HEUER CARRERA CHRONOGRAPH PORSCHE ORANGE RACING
Heat of Speed.
Speed is the name of the game in this TAG Heuer Carrera Porsche Orange Racing special edition. Paying tribute to the passion for racing shared by TAG Heuer and Porsche, it distills a bright orange inspired by the colour of the sparks of heat made by the car on the asphalt. Victory is on the horizon.
PASSION FOR RACING
TAG Heuer and Porsche share a rich history, an independent and powerful mindset, and a dedication to design excellence. For around 70 years, their paths have been meeting and intertwining on and off the racetrack. The solid and lasting bond between TAG Heuer and Porsche comes mainly from their joint roots in motorsports, with one of the most obvious common threads undoubtedly being the Carrera name itself.
TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Porsche Orange Racing
The design of the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche Orange Racing keeps with the unmistakable Porsche aesthetic but also, most importantly, the racing universe that surrounds it. The vibrant orange color can be found throughout the watch, inspired by the color of the heat sparks made by the car on the asphalt. It also nods to the color of fire, an emblematic symbol of speed.
This orange color can be seen on the Porsche logo on the bezel, as well as on the lacquer on the crown and the graphic details present in small touches on the dial, with “azuré” counters and an orange seconds hand. To create this harmonious finish with tasteful touches of color, the TAG Heuer designers have used black in various textures and finishings.
Hour, minute hands as well as arabic numerals are applied with Super-LumiNova®.
The custom-designed oscillating weight pays homage to the Porsche steering wheel. The weight is visible through the sapphire glass case back and is labelled with “Porsche” and “TAG Heuer” and features black and orange touches, such as the column wheel, harmoniously tying together the design of this new watch.
The timepiece’s carbon-like calfskin strap is the perfect finishing touch to the racing inspiration of this TAG Heuer Carrera. Its stitching is a subtle nod to the seat upholstery of Porsche cars, with the dramatic contrast of the orange stitching and lining hinting at the racing marks cars make at high speed.
