Rowing Blazers x TAG Heuer
TAG Heuer Rowing Blazers x Bamford "Yacht-Timer" Carrera
FINAL SALE. Watches ship in December.
Inspired by the iconic Heuer timepieces worn by competitive sailors at important regattas in the ‘60s and ‘70s, the 42mm "Yacht-Timer" Carrera is a special collaboration between Rowing Blazers, TAG Heuer, Bamford Watch Department and vintage watch expert Eric Wind of Wind Vintage. Limited to just 99 units.
The packaging is inspired by the red boxes of vintage Heuer stopwatches (and with a subtle nod to the proverbial "red box" in which Henley Royal Regatta medals come), and is made from recycled ocean plastic. The Carrera also comes with both a bracelet and a nylon strap made to the same pattern as the strap of the vintage Heuer Yacht-Timer that inspired this watch.
Automatic movement. 42mm case. Includes an additional British military-style watch strap.
Watches will ship out in December.
One size fits most.
Inspired by the iconic Heuer Yacht-Timer worn by competitive sailors at important regattas in the ‘60s and ‘70s, the TAG Heuer Rowing Blazers x Bamford Carrera riffs on the Yacht-Timer’s famous color scheme: a white dial, bright blue text, and hits of red, blue, green, and pale yellow — denoting 1-minute sections on the original Yacht-Timer, and reimagined for the Rowing Blazers Carrera as register colors for the Chronograph. The Rowing Blazers Carrera also adopts the Yacht-Timer’s use of cross-hatching on the colors — an effect reminiscent of the “Ben Day dots” used in comic book art and Pop Art.
“I’ve always loved the Heuer Yacht-Timer — both for its sporting origins and its very Rowing Blazers color scheme, but also because there’s something very Roy Lichtenstein about the way the colors are rendered,” explains our founder Jack Carlson, who designed the watch with Bamford and vintage watch expert (and friend of the brand) Eric Wind of Wind Vintage. “Eric loves vintage Heuer stopwatches too, and we’ve dreamed of producing our own watch in the style of these amazing pieces. It's a dream to work with TAG Heuer and Bamford to make this a reality.”
