Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer has been involved with the Goodwood Festival of Speed since 2011 and has recently agreed to continue the collaboration for at least another three years. This, of course, means lots of new special edition watches and this year it’s a timepiece created to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Brazilian driver Emerson Fittipaldi winning the Formula One World Championship for McLaren in 1974.
The TAG Heuer Carrera McLaren 1974 Edition is based on the 43mm Carrera 1887 Ceramic Bezel, with a few modifications. The dial is Silver opaline (which is actually white), contrasting with the two black subdials at 12 and 6 o’clock, which do not display the silver border of the standard model. The usual red detailing on the hand, chronograph pusher and “Automatic” text have also been replaced with McLaren’s customary orange. Another distinctive element of the dial is the black-gold finish applied to the hands and double-numerals.
No word as of yet regarding the availability of the timepiece or pricing details, but the TAG Heuer Carrera McLaren 1974 Edition, but one thing’s for sure: it will be a very exclusive limited edition.
