To celebrate two decades as the Official Timekeeper of the NTT Indycar Series, TAG Heuer launches a new Formula 1 Chronograph Indy 500 Special Edition watch.

The new TAG Heuer Formula 1 Chronograph Indy 500 Special Edition watch.

The 43mm quartz-powered chronograph, which launches ahead of the 108th Indianapolis 500 on May 26, echoes previous special editions from TAG Heuer with its racing-red accents and prominent Indianapolis Speedway logo.

TAG Heuer teamed with the Indycar design team when considering which race references to include in the watch. As a result, you’ll see “Indy 500” displayed on the ceramic bezel, positioned on the tachymeter scale.


In addition, TAG Heuer has engraved the Indy 500 logo and ‘special edition’ mention on the back. Also note the asphalt-like black and red detail on the dial.

As a reference to heritage, the new TAG Heuer Formula 1 Chronograph watch details #11 in the indexes, which underscores the year of the first race in 1911 as well as the beginning of the TAG Heuer partnership in 2011.

The red numeral at 11 o’clock depicts the birth of the race in 1911 and the beginning of the TAG Heuer partnership 100 years later.

The chronograph’s three sub-dials feature a permanent second indicator at 3 o’clock, a minute chronograph counter embellished with the Indianapolis Speedway logo at 6 o’clock, and the hour chronograph counter at 9 o’clock.

As a racing-inspired watch, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Chronograph is fit with a steel bracelet and folding clasp with a double safety system and pilot extension. This allows the watch to be worn over a racing suit.

At this year’s Indy 500 race, look for the new watch on the wrist of of TAG Heuer ambassador and Indycar driver Alexander Rossi.
