Last year TAG Heuer released a limited edition Grand Carrera for the inaugural Singapore Grand Prix- which was also the first ever race to be held at night. Singapore has been a strong market for limited edition watches, with TAG Heuer, Sinn and others releasing Singapore-only models

The 2008 watch (pictured right) sold out quickly, but the black and green colour combination looked a little odd, albeit distinctive.

With the 2009 Singapore race coming up, TAG have tried again and this time with much more success. Photos of the new model on the next page

Below is the 2009 model, this time based on the Carrera Day/ Date Calibre 16, one of the better looking models in the current Carrera range taking its design cues from the limited edition Calibre 360 Carrera.

This is a much better effort than the 2008 version- mainly due to the chequered flag pattern on the dial which gives the watch a distinctive look and much greater differentiation from the standard day/ date Carrera’s. Still not sure about the green and black….

The watch is limited to 250 and has a retial price of S$6500. Some great photos live from PuristSPro can be found here: http://home.watchprosite.com/show-forumpost/fi-17/pi-3311426/ti-540706/s-0/
