Following the announcement of Cristiano Ronaldo joining the TAG Heuer team of ambassadors, we now have the first Ronaldo “CR7” Limited Edition watch launched at Baselworld 2015.
Based on the Formula 1 Chronograph, the CR7 has a black and green colour scheme to evoke the green of the football pitch.
This is the first time we’ve seen this colour combination since the run of limited edition watches from 2008-2012 to mark the annual Singapore Grand Prix.
Putting aside the colour scheme, the main design flourish of the CR7 is the chequered-patterned dial, which gives the watch a distinct feel from the other Formula 1 models.
This contrasts with the three registers, which have a circular pattern- the 3 o’clock register dominated by the large “CR7” text.
The watch case has a 42mm steel case coated in titanium carbide- the same material as the bezel.
The watch only comes on a Black/ Green NATO, which looks great and complements the watch well- let’s face it, you’ll either like the colour scheme or you won’t, but for those who do, the NATO is a perfect match for the watch.
Overall the design is a little like the man himself- I suspect people will have a polarised view of the watch…you’ll either like it or you won’t.
