Tag Heuer's Muhammad Ali Timepiece

Tag Heuer is paying tribute to Muhammad Ali- a man with an incomparable work ethic and revolutionary techniques- by creating a timepiece in his honor. Ali gained the titles of "Sportsman of the Century by Sport's Illustrated and United Nations Messenger of Peace. He was the recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Amnesty International Lifetime Achievement Award.  Accolades aside, Ali played a monumental role in some of the greatest moments in sports and human rights history. The timepieces were presented for the first time at a tribute dinner organized by Lonnie Ali, Ali's wife. The dinner was held at Gleason's Gym in Brooklyn where Ali trained. In attendance, were Tag Heuer brand ambassadors Tom Brady and Henrik Lundqvist, CEO Jean-Claude Biver, and some of Ali's former sparring partners. A one-of-a-kind gold limited edition Muhammad Ali timepiece was auctioned at the event. The proceeds (a whopping $119,000) benefited The Ali Center in Louisville, Kentucky. Gleason's Gym Benefit

One-of-a-Kind Gold Muhammad Ali Timepiece

The box containing the gold Muhammad Ali tribute watch also held a pair of autographed boxing gloves, official watch papers and a gold coin which read "In Memory of Muhammad Ali- 17 January 1942- 3 June 2016". 

The timepiece itself boasts a black dial with Muhammad Ali's signature near the center. A red and black flange with a 15 round boxing fight scale also appears on the dial. The watch's design mimics the specialized Tag Heuer watches used to time boxing in the 1960's. The back of the watch case has an engraved picture of Ali with his signature. A true standout, this 43mm stainless steel timepiece comes complete with a perforated black leather band with red stitching and a steel deployant buckle. Muhammad Ali Limited Edition Timepiece
