Tag Heuer SLR for Mercedes-Benz Limited Edition of 3.500 pieces

The partnership with Mercedes-Benz grew from the shared association that TAG Heuer and Mercedes-Benz had with the McLaren F1 team, which in the early 2000s had sealed a deal with Mercedes-Benz to produce a Supercar that would be the spiritual successor to the famous Mercedes-Benz 300SLR of the 1950s.

The first SLR Calibre 36 was released in 2004 to mark the release of the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, the first McLaren car since the famous McLaren F1, although one that was developed without the genius of Gordon Murray.

Following the success of the second series, TAG Heuer released a third SLR watch the following year in 2007. The third series uses a similar case design, but now in a 45mm case and a bezel finished in black fine-brushed titanium carbide and not polished stainless steel. The double crown and 45 degree chrono. pushers are also carried over, but the watch featured only two sub-dials.

The dial is where the third series stands out, with single-block hour markers, a red-tipped second hand, a “triple-date” window and with a circular patterning on the dial. The watch featured a sharp-looking rubber strap, with ridges that again mimic the shape of the side-gills of the SLR, or a stainless steel bracelet.

The third series is my favourite of the SLR series – in fact, the only aspect of the design that I don’t like is the Mercedes-Benz name on the dial, which I guess many people would see as a plus. Not sure why I don’t feel the same way about the AudiSport name on the AudiSport Heuer of the early 1980s, but I’d prefer the watch without the “Mercedes-Benz” on the dial- perhaps instead engraving the logo on the back of the watch.

The third series was also sold as a limited edition of 3,500 watches.
