This year marks the 30th anniversary of the collaboration between Tag Heuer and McLaren, and to celebrate, the watchmaker introduces a limited edition Tag Heuer Formula 1: McLaren watch. The Swiss company makes a numbered limited edition in a beloved ‘Rocket Red’ colour that was inspired by the tomato red Mclaren in the 1985 campaign.

It can be found on the aluminium bezel which features the tachometer function, engraved with McLaren. There are also hints of it on the flange, notably the number “30” on the minute track, a nod to this highly symbolic anniversary. And, finally, it is featured on the Rocket Red and Black NATO strap.

This highly resilient strap lends the piece a resolutely sporty look. It encircles the wrist, ensuring a comfortable fit for all. “TAG Heuer” is hot-stamped underneath, and the keepers, buckle and pin are made from 316L stainless steel. Both the ends of the strap and the buckle holes are laser-cut to ensure a high-quality finish.

A limited edition watch like no other, the Tag Heuer x McLaren 30th anniversary watch is certainly one to add to your permanent collection.
