Tag Heuer released this new timepiece at BaselWorld 2009 – a collector’s edition in homage to the original one Steve McQueen wore in Le Mans.
Tag Heuer is going to limited the release to 4,000 pieces.
Here’s an excerpt from an article on wristdreams.com:
The larger (39mm) case gives the watch a more contemporary look, while the orange and blue meteor dial design, inspired by the Porsche Gulf 917K driven by Steve McQueen in Le Mans, expresses its professional racing heritage. Vintage “Gulf” logo and date window at 6 o’clock, small second at 3 and chronograph minute at 9, faceted and a stylish grey alligator strap with grey stitching – the 5,000-pieces edition is a racing purist’s dream machine.
