Discover how the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche Orange Racing, and the paintings inspired by it, evoke the fire and thunder of motorsport.
Fire is a mystical element. Its heat, its sparks, its ferocity have captured mankind’s imagination for centuries. That’s why people still seek to play with fire. You see this often on the racetrack. Racing drivers, the gladiators of motorsport, battle and thrive in the heat of the moment. Sparks fly across asphalt, and the adrenaline goes through the roof. Fire, heat, and the color orange are key parts of the racing universe. And we pay tribute to these elements with the new TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche Orange Racing. Discover how the timepiece, and the paintings inspired by it, capture the heat of the moment.
The new TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche Orange Racing is marvelously molten. The color vibrant orange is celebrated throughout this chronograph. Inspired by the color of the sparks made by racing cars screaming over the tarmac, the watch sizzles on your wrist. The color sears itself into your mind, firing up your passion for racing. From the color to the textures to the orange stitching and lining that evoke tire marks, every detail on the timepiece is an homage to the racing universe.
To commemorate the release of the timepiece, Hanna Schönwald has created a collection of paintings that evoke the elegant and electric nature of the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche Orange Racing. A breakout talent from the area of Hamburg, Hanna is an industrial designer, artist, and car enthusiast. Much like us, she understands the red-hot emotions triggered by motorsport. In fact, Hanna says that her credo is Schnelle Kunst, which can be freely translated as ‘fast art’. This makes her an ideal choice for capturing the essence of the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche Orange Racing.
In many ways, our timepiece and Hanna’s art pieces have come full circle. The racing universe influenced the watch and the watch has inspired Hannah’s ‘fast art’ paintings. Both harness the mystical fire and heat of racing, transporting you to your happy place - the blazing cauldron of the racetrack.
Produced as a special edition, the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche Orange Racing will be sold in TAG Heuer boutiques, on the brand’s e-commerce website, and at select retail partners.
