An unique and highly collectible watch

Back of case engraved Mercedes 300 SLRRather than the standard silver or gold dials, Tag Heuer has created an orange second hand that stands out against the brown dial. This is a nice touch on an already classy looking watch.

The double anti-reflective treatment makes reading the watch easy in bright environments. If you should ever forget to take your watch off while swimming or showering, it is water resistant for up to one-hundred meters so you do not have to worry about your watch being damaged or ruined.

The luminescent faceted hands and indexes provide greater visibility either in the dark or under water. Most people fear that their watches will eventually scratch and get ruined, but this watch has an anti-scratch curved sapphire crystal that is cut from what’s known as polished slice of sapphire (solid) which is so durable that only a diamond can scratch it.

The straps of this watch are available in fabric and leather in addition to alligator or python skin—not an option you typically find on a watch. Finally, what makes this watch unique is the engraved mythical Mercedes-Benz 300SLR driven by Fangio that is engraved on the back of it.
