TAG Heuer & Fragment Team Up For A 1970s Race-Inspired Chronograph

Jun 19, 2020

Category: Style

In the late 1960s, TAG Heuer kicked off an unprecedented era marked by the creation of numerous iconic and highly-successful chronograph models, spurred on by the release of the horological outfit’s Caliber 11 automatic Chrono movement in 1969. In particular, this period saw Heuer unveil several legendary race watches, which have since become an integral part of the Swiss watch company’s DNA, as well as the primary inspiration for the brand’s latest collaboration with Hiroshi Fujiwara’s fragment design.

Dubbed the TAG Heuer x Fragment Design Heuer 02 Chronograph, this limited edition release comes two years after the two label’s first joint effort endeavor in 2018. Paired with a new five-row steel bracelet secured via a butterfly-fold clasp, the limited edition chronograph is built around a 44mm stainless steel case enshrouding a black opaline dial sporting a pair of embossed subdials and TAG and fragment branding under the 12 o’clock marker. A black ceramic-based bezel is contrasted by a new white tachymeter design, while the case-back is comprised of a transparent red item adorned in the fragment logo. Limited to only 500 units worldwide, the TAG Heuer x Fragment Design Heuer 02 Chronograph is currently available for preorder on TAG’s website for $6,150, with a release scheduled for July 27.

Purchase: $6,150
