I’ll be honest, I’m not a huge watch guy. And I certainly don’t attempt to wear status around my wrist. But every once in awhile one will give me the sudden urge to part with a ridiculous amount of money. This is definitely one of those watches.

The 2012 TAG Heuer Carrera Jack Heuer 80th Birthday Carrera does just what its name implies: celebrates Jack Heuer’s 80th birthday this year. Jack Heur introduced the Carrera in 1964 and was CEO of TAG Heuer until it was sold in 1982. The 80th Birthday Carrera features a bold metallic silver sunburst face, retro hour markers, hints of red throughout, Calibre 17 movement, and a 41mm Carrera case with Jack’s signature engraved on the back. Available with either a polished metal band or calfskin strap featuring a red backing.

Limited to 3,000 units.
