Nicknamed after the brand’s racing success at the Carrera Panamericana rally events in the ‘50s, the Porsche 911 RS 2.7 brought the track to the street and was the fastest German production vehicle upon its release in 1972.
Last year, TAG Heuer, a watch brand known for its own history in the racing scene, began a partnership with Porsche that’s already seen three releases thus far, with a fourth one now being introduced. The latest pair of limited-edition chronographs pays tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Carrera name while exhibiting the design language that’s made both companies so iconic over the years.
The 42mm polished steel case of the standard model surrounds a white dial with blue accents as a nod to the legendary colors of the classic 911s. Equipped with both a white Nato strap and a steel link bracelet, this edition is limited to 500 pieces. Running on the same in-house Calibre Heuer 02 automatic chronograph movement with three totalizers, the white and red variant is housed in an 18K 5N rose gold case with an alligator leather strap and is limited to just 250 pieces.
Available now via TAG Heuer’s website, the beautiful TAG Heuer Carrera x Porsche 911 RS 2.7 chronographs are priced at $7,750 and $23,550.
