TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-01 Calibre
Manufacture Chronograph
Manchester United Special Edition
 
Manchester United is off to a strong start this year with its official timekeeper, TAG Heuer. The watch manufacture is proud to unveil the first watches in the colours of the world's most famous football club today, alongside the players at Old Trafford. 
 
Meet the prestigious Carrera Heuer-01 Manufacture Chronograph, an illustrious special edition in the club’s colours. With a large yet streamlined diameter of 45 mm, this sporty piece has a distinctly contemporary design. Its black skeleton dial and sapphire case-back invite you to admire the stunning mechanism of the Heuer-01 Manufacture Chronograph.
 
Naturally, the striking red of Manchester United is given pride of place: it features in the club logo at 9 o’clock, the TAG Heuer shield at 12 o’clock on the bezel, the hour, minute and chronograph central second hands, and the red alligator leather strap. This football-inspired piece, made entirely from black PVD-coated steel, features the date at half past three and boasts a black ceramic bezel with an engraved tachymeter scale. It is available with a red strap with black top-stitching or black strap with red top-stitching. The sapphire case-back highlights the Manchester United red devil decal logo. This clever contrast of red and black makes this watch a perfect tribute to that most illustrious of clubs, Manchester United.

About TAG Heuer 
 
The avant-garde of Swiss watchmaking since 1860. Ever since, TAG Heuer has been striving to push the boundaries further, inventing timepieces for those who love to defy convention. This technical expertise was harnessed at a very early stage for achieving extreme accuracy, particularly in the creation of exceptional chronographs. Under the leadership of Jean-Claude Biver, CEO of the brand and President of the LVMH Group Watch Division, the new models reveal a new dynamism: faster lead times and developments, and a completely transformed environment. 
 
"Football is the most popular sport in the world. It’s a language that crosses borders, a religion. With football, we convey passion, emotion, joy, dreams, team spirit, organisation, strategy, and finally, victory; values that are also carried by our brand and, more importantly, by the people who buy and wear our watches”, says Jean-Claude Biver.
 
In Europe, North America, Asia, and Australia, our partnerships combine to provide geographic coverage that is perfectly aligned with our marketing activities and sales presence across the globe. These include the Premier League, the German Bundesliga, the Spanish La Liga, American Major League Soccer (MLS) with the US Soccer Federation & Professional Referee Organization, the Chinese Football Association Super League, the Japanese Premier League, the Copa America, the International Champions Cup, the Australian men’s team, Manchester United, and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), including the Asian Cup 2019 & the Asian Qualifiers Final Round to qualify for the FIFA World Cup 2018. The brand also has two international ambassadors from the world of football, superstar Cristiano Ronaldo who has been with the brand since 2014, and Leicester City coach Claudio Ranieri, who won the Premier League in 2016.
