The watch comes with the COSC certified chronometers and a Calibre 17 RS2 Automatic chronograph that many will simply love. Combining the love for watches and motor racing and being inspired by the GT race car engine design, the TAG Heuer created a beautiful Rotating System that has replaced the traditional display. The normal hands have been created to resemble the dashboard style disk but without interfering with readability. This makes for a unique touch to the whole design reminding the wearer about tradition and style but also about the history and innovative process that stands behind such a marvelous watch. With the permanent seconds hand at 3 o’clock and chrono minutes at 9 o’clock the watch has a normal and easy to access display. This particular model here has been made with fine brushed polished steel and sapphire crystal that has been fitted into the case back which shows the great movement behind the watch. You will love its shiny look with elements that combine with each other perfectly in a pretty complicated design.

So, while reinterpreting the classics this stunning watch is perfect for someone looking for something a bit out of the ordinary. With its refined look but also great precision and a lot of new technology behind it, the watch makes for a perfect every day time piece. The main advantage is the fact that it can be combined with casual outfits as well as outfits that are more formal.
