Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer has re-issued one of its most coveted creations, the Silverstone Chronograph.

The Heuer Silverstone chronograph was originally introduced back in 1974, emulating the curvature of the famous English racing track, hence the name.

The original Silverstone timepiece housed the Chronomatic Calibre 11, the first-ever self-winding automatic chronograph with micro rotor.

This revolutionary movement provided wearers with precision timing comparable to the standards of professional chronometer instruments.

The new Silverstones will be released in brown and blue colorways with perforated alligator straps and an updated Caliber 11 movement with a Dubois-Depraz module.

Only 1500 examples will be offered, with an asking price at $6,500 apiece.
