TAG Heuer presents a special edition timepiece to celebrate its partnership with English Premier League as the Official Timekeeper of the world’s most popular soccer tournament.
Naturally, a sports model — a 43 mm Aquaracer — has been chosen to bear the colours of the English league. At its heart beats the Calibre 5 mechanical movement. Made from steel, it boasts an attractive black ceramic bezel, specially designed for this football-themed watch. The 45-minute numerals for each period of half-time are lacquered white and the 15 minutes of extra time are lacquered red.
The anthracite grey dial with its sunray effect is particularly elegant. It features the new Premier League lion logo at 9 o’clock, stamped in white. The MatchTimer inscription in the centre is another nod to this watch’s footballing pedigree. The baton indexes are coated in white SuperLuminova™ to improve visibility in the stadium during evening matches. The hour hands are rhodium-plated and the minute and seconds hands are red.
As a finishing touch, the date window positioned at 3 o’clock is equipped with a magnifier, another sports feature, which helps improve visibility. The case has a screw-on back with an exclusive engraving of the Premier League lion, and the exclusive inscription “Official TimeKeeper”. The watch is complemented by an elegantly integrated steel link bracelet.
