Watches and cars go together like peanut replica watches uk butter and jelly, wine and cheese, or Ren and Stimpy. Not that they are inherently connected, or that you would need them to make the other work. But they work together beautifully - accurate chronographs help keep those lap times, right? While racing is electronic for the times, there is something to be said about the mechanical nature of a watch paired with the mechanical nature of a car. To that end, there's a new watch that you can only buy if you buy a car: the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera TAG Heuer Edition.
Well actually, this is the car you are buying (at £ 295,000). With it, you get, along with the floor mats and bottom trim, a TAG Heuer DBS Edition Carrera Heuer 02. I'm not an automobile expert, but this is a nice piece of machinery. I actually saw another Aston Martin just yesterday, actually, at the mall, and this is a car with sheet metal that makes it look like it's going fast, even when it's standing still. For all this, the opening of the grill brings to mind (or at least to my mind) that of a fish opening its mouth to swallow an insect. Maybe it's not a glamorous association, but it still works, right? I mean, the opening grille is sending the air down for the engine. Now, if it were a shooting brake, we could have the fishing rods hanging in the back ...
I digress. Grille quirks aside, the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera TAG Heuer Edition is a beautiful piece of metal, and only 50 will be made. If you see one on the street, you can rest assured that the driver will be in possession of a TAG Heuer DBS Edition Carrera Heuer 02 (also limited to 50 pieces, as the watch comes replica watches with the car). To tie things up to the car, the honeycomb look of the grille is replicated in the dial with an openwork lattice. This, along with the Aston Martin logo at 6 o'clock and the words "Aston Martin" on the speedometer scale are the main signals in the foreground. On the back you have more verbosity that cement things.
From the photos (no specs were provided here, unfortunately), it looks like the TAG Heuer DBS Edition Carrera Heuer 02 comes with a forged carbon case, which should keep things nice and light (weight need to be reduced car for speed, you know). For Heuer, the motorsport association isn't hard to pull off, and I like the way the brand has tried to glean cues from the car (the grille and coloring on the watch) rather than just slapping an Aston Martin logo on. another piece and calling it a day. It's also interesting to see the TAG Heuer logo pop up in the car (something we don't normally see outside of sponsored race cars). It's an interesting collaboration that got off to a good start. We will be watching from fake Hublot the terraces to see how things progress once there are still a couple of laps under the shared belt. Learn more about the partnership on tagheuer.
