A watch to go with the Mclaren MP4-12C

There are certain things that go well together: peanut butter and jelly, suit and tie, and of course supercar and wristwatch. For the new owners of the 2011/2012 McLaren MP4-12C TAG Heuer has designed a watch to perfectly match their new supercar. TAG Heuer made certain this watch is very similar to the car including the design, aesthetics and feel.

You will quickly notice the carbon fiber face which replicates the body of the McLaren’s full carbon fiber composite monocoque. The signature orange stitching matches that of the first cars we have seen from the factory. The wristbands of the watch come with a perforated Alcantara (synthetic suede), which adds the sporty touch to such an iconic watch. This perforated look comes from the seats of this car. The buttons on the right side of the watch draw their design from the rods of the engine – the double rings represent the piston rings. With all this it’s very easy to see how well this watch will fit nicely into your collection. Sadly though only 1000 pieces will be produced and they are priced for those who wouldn’t have any trouble picking up their new McLaren. But it’s always nice to admire great things especially in the automotive world.
