TAG Heuer Indy 500 Watches for 101st Running of the Indianapolis 500

On May 28, 2017, 33 qualifying IRL drivers will line up at the Indianapolis 500 for a chance to go down in history as a winner of the most anticipated racing spectacle in the world.  This year’s Indy 500 marks the 101st running of the race. There will also be the traditionally iconic Formula 1 edition limited to 500. To commemorate the 101st running, TAG Heuer is releasing a Carrera Automatic Chronograph limited to 101 pieces. Learn more about the Tag Heuer Indianapolis 500 Watches below: TAG Heuer Indy 500 Formula 1 Chronograph $1,650 (Limited to 500)

The Formula 1 Indy 500 watch is particularly spectacular this year because the "wings" (the logo of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway) have been incorporated into the dial. The wings can be seen at the 1/100th counter near the 6:00 position.  TAG Heuer states this is “the casual sports watch for a fast-paced life” and this piece certainly represents that style well. The dial has a striking color described as anthracite grey sunray brushed.  The combination of grey, black and red on this stainless steel watch are very striking.  The 43mm case size is just right for a nice sporty casual look.  The case-back design has the 101st Indy 500 logo and checkered flag stamping which is certainly worth showing off. This TAG Heur hosts a quartz movement with a 1/100th second chronograph counter.  The 1/100th second counter is very intriguing, especially the first 30 seconds you activate the chronograph.  For those first 30 seconds you will see the second hand rotate around each second ready to stop on the mark to time an extremely fast paced event.
