TAG Heuer release two new limited edition watches - the TAG Heuer Hackett Chronograph and the TAG Heuer Hackett Watch. The latest releases form part of the iconic Carrera collection and are a collaboration with Hackett London, the purveyor of quintessentially classic British clothing and accessories. The pieces use the signature Hackett cornflower blue to subtle but pleasing effect, on the seconds hand for both pieces, on the date window surround on the three-handed model and around the counters on the chronograph.
The three-handed watch features the Hackett "H" in place of the number 12, measures 39mm and is powered by the Calibre 5 Automatic movement.
At the heart of the chronograph is the Calibre 16 Chronograph movement and this edition measures 41mm. Water resistance is to 100m for the chronograph and to 50m for the three-hand piece. Both feature scratch resistant crystal and exhibition casebacks.
The use of Hackett-style Arabic numerals on the dials gives both of these models a fresh and unique approach and the understated use of the Hackett logo is admirable and very er............ British.
Limited to 100 pieces of each edition the TAG Heuer Hackett watches are presented on calfskin leather straps with blue contrast stitching.
