The Indianapolis 500 (Indy 500) is one of the three biggest annual events in motorsports, and replica TAG Heuer watches has a long-standing relationship with it. Due to the epidemic, the 2020 Indy 500 has been postponed to August 23rd. To celebrate this partnership, TAG Heuer is launching the Formula 1 Indy 500 Chronograph Limited Edition 2020 (model: CAZ101AD.FT8024).
The new model is 43 mm in diameter and features a black DLC steel case with a sandblasted finish for a matte finish. The black textured dial has three silver-tone sub-dials (1/10th of a second, small seconds, 30-minute counter) and a date window (at 4 o’clock) and is decorated with a red brick motif (the Indy 500 was known as the “Brickyard”). The rhodium-plated hour markers and the central hour and minute hands are coated with white Super-LumiNova luminescent material to ensure readability even in dark conditions. The solid steel case back is decorated with the Indy 500 logo.
The 1/10th of a second counter at 6 o’clock is decorated with the distinctive Indianapolis Motor Speedway logo, as is the case with other Indy 500 special editions. The black ceramic fixed bezel is marked with the “INDY 500” lettering and tachymeter scale. The chronograph is powered by a precision quartz movement and fitted with a sporty black rubber strap.
The TAG Heuer Formula 1 Indy 500 Chronograph is now available in a limited edition of 1,500 pieces.
