Baselworld 2015 has certainly been the year of the limited edition Formula 1, with models aligned to Ronaldo, McLaren, David Guetta and this one- the Indy 500 Edition. The new Indy 500 keeps things simple- a striking anthracite dial with a subtle chequered flag pattern and two bold red lines.
While this watch comes only on the steel bracelet you see below, we can easily picture this one on the Black and Red NATO strap offered on the McLaren edition.
A Brief History of the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Indy 500 Edition
TAG Heuer began sponsoring the Indianapolis 500 race back in 2004 and since then there have been several “Indy 500” edition watches, which were traditionally presented to the winners.
The most recent model has been the 2012 edition (shown below), which introduced a much cleaner look for the watch, the main elements of which continue today.
