2020 marks the 160th anniversary for Swiss luxury watchmaker TAG Heuer, and earlier this year, the brand had released a 1964 Carrera chronograph reissue to celebrate the occasion. Now, it’s following up with yet another limited edition, this time combining the iconic Carrera chronograph with a rather surprising watch: the first-generation Montreal.

Taking a ’70s Carrera chronograph as its base, the brand applied the design sensibilities of the first-generation Montreal, creating a truly bold chronograph filled with whites, blues, reds, and yellows, adorning all parts of the watch including the dial, indices, minute and hour hands, the vibrant seconds hand, as well as all three subdials. The case itself is stainless steel and measures in at a more classic 39mm, with a windowed caseback on the rear so you can admire the Calibre HEUER 02 automatic chronograph, capable of holding a power reserve of 80 hours and operating at 28,800 vibrations per hour. Finishing the limited edition off is a blue alligator strap with a polished steel clasp to match the timepiece’s case.

For those interested, the TAG Heuer Carrera 160 Years Montreal Limited Edition is now available over on the watchmaker’s website, limited to just 1,000 pieces and retailing for $6,750 USD.

Elsewhere in watches, IWC is celebrating the accomplishment of the Spitfire world circumnavigation with a limited edition bronze Big Pilot’s Watch Big Date.
