LOS ANGELES, Sep 30, 2008 / FW/ — With only 150 units made, the TAG Heuer Grand Carrera Singapore Grand Prix limited edition watches is a collector’s item the moment it hit the stores. And being only available in Singapore, it has become one of the most covetable watches of the season.
A commemorative watch for the Singapore Night Race, the first night race in the world, the TAG Heuer Grand Carrera Singapore Grand Prix echoes the night race format with its all-black bezel, dial and indexes.
Respecting this historic milestone, the commemorative watch will be presented together with a limited edition book titled “Snakes and Devils”, compiled and authored by motoring enthusiast, Eli Solomon. The book pays tribute to the history of the Singapore Grand Prix.
Attending the launch are TAG Heuer brand ambassadors Kimi Räikkönen, defending Formula 1 World Champion and Scuderia Ferrari driver and Lewis Hamilton, 2007 World Vice-Champion and Vodafone McLaren Mercedes star taking on the streets of Singapore at night.
For a charitable cause, the limited edition timepiece numbered 1 of 150 was autographed by TAG Heuer ambassador and defending world champion, Kimi Raikkonen.
The box was presented to Kimi Raikkonen by 2 children representing MILK Charity at the TAG Heuer event at Paragon Shopping Centre on 24th September. It was auctioned at the MILK (Mainly I Love Kids) Charity Gala presented by Sincere Fine Watches at Shangri-La Hotel on the same night for S$40,000.
The TAG Heuer Grand Carrera (Singapore Limited Edition) will be available at all TAG Heuer boutiques and Grand Carrera authorized retailers in Singapore.
