TAG Heuer officially unveiled its new limited-edition Carrera calibre 1887 chronograph at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend.
The watch, powered by TAG's in-house movement, is being produced to mark the 40th anniversary of the McLaren Formula 1 team's first title in 1974. Emerson Fittipaldi drove the Heuer-sponsored McLaren M23 to victory in the drivers' World Championship, sealing the Constructor's championship along the way.
TAG Heuer has had a long association with McLaren and Goodwood, and this year confirmed that it is set to remain the official timing partner for the Festival of Speed for three more years. As part of its association with the Festival, TAG Heuer adjudicated the 1.16-mile hillclimb, which was this year reintroduced as a timed challenge.
Also on display at the Festival of Speed were a number of cars from McLaren's racing history, including F1 cars driven by Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost. McLaren was also well-represented in the supercar paddock, with debut appearances for its new 650S coupe and convertible versions, as well as its flagship hybrid supercar, the P1.
The watch plays homage to McLaren's racing heritage, with the second hand and tachymetre numbering in the race team's signature orange. It will retail for £4,500.
