Crushing On: Tag Heuer Carrera Monaco Grand Prix

Why do we boys love our Carrera’s so much? This iconic watch by Tag Heuer was first released in 1963, named after the perilous Carrera road race in Mexico, and prides itself as being the first authentic sports chronograph, endorsed by F1 champions and sports car aficionados across the globe — read Alain Prost, David Coulthard, Kimi Raikkonen, Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button and the likes…

The Tag Heuer Carrera Monaco Grand Prix version is a tribute to the iconic Monaco Grand Prix. You will find the name of the race etched in red on its ceramic bezel. The race’s official logo is engraved on the sapphire caseback, which also features the model number of the limited edition series. The Tag Heuer Carrera Monaco is powered by TAG Heuer’s signature Calibre 1887 movement. If you look closely you will notice the unique tyre design on the rubber strap. This design is meant to represent the F1 tyres in 1963, when the Carrera first came out.

Reportedly, the Tag Heuer Carrera Monaco Grand Prix watch is now a standard issue for McLaren drivers. In that case, we’d all like to be McLaren drivers.

Stay stylish, folks!
