In November 2021 to mark the Mexico City Grand Prix, TAG Heuer released Special Edition of its iconic TAG Heuer Carrera tourbillon chronograph and produced a unique version especially with Mexican F1 pilot Sergio Pérez, the TAG Heuer Carrera Tourbillon Sergio Perez Edition, of which only two pieces were produced.
One is the driver’s personal watch and the second was auctioned to support the Checo Pérez Foundation. The bold and sophisticated 45-mm timepiece is made of high-performance and lightweight Grade 2 titanium, coated with DLC (diamond-like carbon), with a ceramic bezel for a full matte black aesthetic with elegant and subtle rose gold accents, a contemporary tribute to the famed racing chronograph designed by Jack Heuer in 1963.
Powered by the tourbillon manufacture movement Heuer 02T, this unique interpretation of the TAG Heuer Carrera showcases the brand’s most advanced watchmaking techniques, signature design codes and expert craftmanship.
The custom-made TAG Heuer Carrera Tourbillon Sergio Perez Edition sports a special “SP” marking on the dial as well as his motto “Never Give Up” engraved on the case back. Symbolically the sapphire crystal case back also features the date of the 2021 Mexican Grand Prix, Pérez’s home race, on 07.11.21, where he achieved a podium finish.
TAG Heuer is the Official Watch of the Monaco Grand Prix and in 2022, Sergio “Checo” Pérez won the 79th Monaco Grand Prix for the first time with this personalized edition of the TAG Heuer Carrera on his wrist.
