Porsche x TAG Heuer: Limited Edition in honor of the Carrera 911 RS 2.7L

The union of the two houses celebrates the 50th anniversary of the legendary Porsche 911 RS 2.7 with this limited edition homage to the Porsche x TAG Heuer watchmaking: Carrera 911 RS 2.7L. To commemorate the anniversary of the iconic automobile launched in 1972, two limited-edition watches were created. Again, the 911’s performance on the circuit directly caught the attention of car collectors. The euphoria was immediate. Upon launch, Porsche tripled production to meet the demand of enthusiasts. Known for several watchmaking achievements in the world of motorsport, TAG Heuer has been an official Porsche partner since 2021. Racing cars have always inspired almost everywhere in TAG Heuer’s artistic line. Now classic models such as the Carrera, Monaco and Autavia developed in the 1960s have established Heuer at the center of the chronograph in this field. The limited edition models that celebrate the shared heritage of these two institutions (the Porsche 911 and Heuer’s Carrera) are all named after the Panamericana de la Carrera race in Mexico. Crafted from 500-piece steel or 250-piece solid 18K rose gold, the watch is housed in a modern Carrera 42mm case. They now adopt the most popular RS colors, called Glacier Blue (steel) and Guards Red (gold).
