TAG Heuer Manchester United Special Editions – Carrera Heuer 01 Manchester United and Formula 1 Manchester United

Celebrating the third season as the Official Timekeeper of Manchester United, Swiss watch brand TAG Heuer is launching two new models sporting the colours of this legendary football club. These two new models, with their contemporary design and cleverly contrasting use of red and anthracite grey, could be sported by players from the start of the forthcoming 2018/2019 season.

TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 01 Manchester United

The first model released is the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 01. This illustrious special edition features the club’s colours. With a large yet streamlined diameter of 43 mm, this sporty piece has a distinctly modern, contemporary design. Of course, the striking red of Manchester United takes centre stage, featuring on the club’s logo positioned at 9 o’clock, the flange with 60-second scale, and the TAG Heuer shield on the bezel at 12 o’clock; the hour, minute and chronograph central seconds hands and, finally, the rubber strap, all also sport the club’s iconic signature colour.

The sapphire case-back highlights the famous Manchester United red devil decal logo. Its anthracite skeleton dial, set within a sporty red flange, allows the beautiful mechanism of the Heuer-01 Manufacture Chronograph to be admired.

TAG Heuer Formula 1 Manchester United

The second model is a TAG Heuer Formula 1 chronograph. Made entirely from steel, this football-inspired quartz chronograph features a notched steel bezel with a tachymeter scale. The Arabic numeral 12, in red lacquer and located at 12 o’clock, contrasts with the opaline anthracite dial, echoing the colours of Manchester United. In striking red, the Manchester United logo positioned on the counter at 6 o’clock stands out particularly clearly. The date, meanwhile, is positioned at 4 o’clock on a black disc.

The screw-down case is engraved with the Manchester United logo. This model is available with a perforated black rubber strap, ensuring a more contemporary look than ever before. Thanks to the 1/10 second hand, which completes one revolution of the counter positioned at 6 o’clock every second, this chronograph is not just a pleasure to look at, it is also one of the best value watches on the market, with accomplished finishes to honour that most prestigious of clubs, Manchester United.
