Tag Heuer Carrera 5 Ring Master Muhammad Ali Edition
Tag Heuer has announced a tribute to Muhammad Ali in the form of a special edition timepiece, a self-winding 43mm Calibre 5 model that’s sure to have collectors queuing. There are two models of the Ali Carrera- a stainless steel edition and a solid gold model.
The watch will have a limited run of just 250, although there is talk of more following next year. If you fancy the gold edition you’re too late – there was only one and that watch was auctioned off with proceeds going to the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Centre.
You will have to be fast on your feet if you want one…
More about the watch
A highly-polished steel-cased watch somehow looks larger than its 43mm and with a an under-glass 15-round boxing bezel circling the dial its looks rather special. The bezel is adjustable by a crown at 10’oclock and has a red chequered pattern that takes its influence from a Heuer Ringmaster boxing stop-watch in the brand’s museum.
From a collector perspective, the most distinguishing feature will be that the watch bears Muhammad Ali’s signature and has an embossed portrait of the legendary boxer on the back case. The watch is also water resistant to 100m and has a date feature at 6 o’clock.
This TAG Heuer Carrera watch is further evidence of the brand’s world famous engineering and exquisitely made timepieces. Its’s a knockout with us here at Whittles Jewellers!
