There are many successful partnerships between luxury watches and automobiles and this paring can be tallied up to another triumph. TAG Heuer and Aston Martin have come together for their second collaboration that has lead to this new “TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre Heuer 01 Aston Martin Special Edition”.

The 45mm case is made of stainless-steel with a mixture of fine-brushed and a polished finish. On the flip-side we have a sapphire crystal exhibition case back, which allows to view the inner workings of the mechanical movement.
Mounted to the case is a fixed black brushed ceramic bezel with a tachymeter scale and a white inscription reading “ASTON MARTIN” and the car manufactures brand logo in red at the 12 o’clock position. It comes equipped with a fine-brushed setting-crown surrounded by rubber to provide a tactile and firm grasp when applying adjustments.
The lugs have also be exclusively reshaped for this edition, following the iconic bodywork lines of an Aston Martin. All topped by a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment on both sides, which assists with water-resistance on this watch being able of reaching up to 100 meters (330 feet).
Time is exhibited on a black honeycomb structure dial with rhodium plated hour index markers; while circling around the flange is a ring of white printed seconds index markers, longer minute markers and double-digit numerals for every five-minute increment. It features three sub-dials: a 12-hour counter at the 6 o’clock position, a sub-seconds at the 9 o’clock position and a 12-hour counter at the 12 o’clock position.
The in-house caliber Heuer 01 movement is visible through the dial, which is partially skeletonized in a hexagon pattern. This hexagon pattern was inspired by the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera front grille.
There is also a white date aperture located between the 3 and 4 o’clock positions. The central rhodium plated hands and hour index markers have all been fitted with a luminescent filling, for an enhanced legibility.
