My favourite touch on the 2011 Singapore GP model is actually the use of the coloured logo. While the coloured logo was a common feature of TAG Heuers in the 1980s and 90s, it has largely disappeared of late, replaced by the Monochrome version of the TAG Heuer shield.

It looks quite retro to see the coloured logo is use again on the Calibre 16 Carrera Heritage.

There are 250 of these watches available, and as you might guess, all are being sold in Singapore.

Also available this year is a Lady’s Singapore Edition, again a Formula 1 model. Unlike the Green and Black combo used for the Men’s watches, the signature touch of the Lady’s edition seems to be diamonds.

Again this year black diamonds are used, but the base watch this time is the new Chronograph version of the Formula 1 Lady.

The Lady’s watch is a Limited Edition of 200 watches.

2011 Singapore Grand Prix EditionWhile I still maintain that Black and Green is not my favourite colour combination for a watch, there is a nice tradition building with these watches, and the ones that do come on to the second-hand market seem to command strong prices. Last year wasn’t a great race for TAG Heuer’s partner McLaren Mercedes, so fingers crossed for a better result this time.
