The partnership between Aston Martin and Tag Heur has finally spawned another watch known as the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre Heuer 01 Aston Martin Special Edition. Designed as the second collaborative timepiece between the automaker and watchmaker, this new timepiece comes with a 45mm solid steel case that also features a ceramic black brushed tachymeter bezel with Aston Martin engravings. The lines of the watch take clear inspiration from Aston Martin sports cars and were specifically designed to "evoke speed, the race track and pistons."

Other design elements on the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre include a skeletonized patter on the visible movement, which is meant to mirror the designs of the new Vantage car. The lugs of the watch are meant to evoke the bodywork of Aston Martin cars and are meant to capture the feeling of handling an Aston Martin vehicle.
