    The now legendary Carrera was originally created by Jack Heuer in 1963. The Carrera was the first sports chronograph designed for professional drivers and sports-car enthusiasts. The name was inspired by the “Carrera Panamericana Mexico Road Race”, a dangerous and difficult test of driving ability. The watch became standard issue for all Ferrari drivers. In 1970, every member of the 'scuderia' - Jackie Ickx, Clay Regazzoni, Mario Andretti, Carlos Reutemann and Jody Scheckter wore a solid gold Carrera engraved with their name and blood type. Since that time the Carrera has been worn by every TAG Heuer driver including Alain Prost, David Coulthard, Kimi Räikkönen, Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button.


    The new Carrera Monaco Grand Prix Limited Edition is a timepiece with instant impact. Its uncompromising racing looks honour TAG Heuer’s partnership with the Monaco Grand Prix, the world’s most prestigious circuit in Formula 1. Every design detail from the fine-brushed black titanium carbide and the titanium casing to the racing red seconds hand and accents, shout Formula 1.

    The masculine black is mellowed by subtle striping on the dial, and ‘Monaco Grand Prix’ lettering. Even the strap recalls the grip of racing car tyres from 1963, the year the Carrera was first introduced. The official logo is engraved on the sapphire caseback, along with the limited edition number (0001/2,500). The watch is powered by TAG Heuer’s in-house manufactured Calibre 1887 movement.

    Love the watch, not sure about the tire-tread strap....

    Since I'm a huge motorsports fan, I actually love the tire tread strap.
