In a remarkable fusion of Japanese racing heritage and contemporary culture, TAG Heuer, Team Ikuzawa, and Bamford Watch Department have come together to craft a timepiece that is as exquisite as it is meaningful. This collaboration has birthed a watch that is a tribute to Team Ikuzawa and the rich culture it represents, encapsulated in a design that is both sporty and sophisticated.
A Dial that Tells More than Time
At the heart of this watch lies a dial that is a visual representation of speed and precision. The white opaline finish of the dial is a canvas on which the red 60-second/minute scale boldly stands out, embodying the spirit of racing that Team Ikuzawa is synonymous with. The chronograph counters at 3 and 9 o’clock, contrasting in white and red, add a layer of functionality and aesthetic appeal to the design.
The rhodium-plated, polished indexes and hands are adorned with white Super-LumiNova® and red lacquer, creating a beautiful interplay of colors that is both sporty and elegant. Every element on the dial is a nod to the avant-garde culture that this collaboration represents.
Encased in Excellence
The excellence extends beyond the dial, encased within a finely brushed and polished 42mm steel case is the in-house Heuer 02 movement that powers the watch. This robust casing is not just a protective shell, but a statement of the craftsmanship that has gone into creating this masterpiece.
A Back that Bears Legacy
Each timepiece is further distinguished by a special steel screw-down sapphire case back, which proudly displays the “XXX/100”, “Team Ikuzawa” logo, and “BAMFORD WATCH DEPT.” imprint. This is a hallmark of authenticity and a tribute to the legacy and the collaborative effort that has gone into creating this timepiece.
