TAG Heuer is marking its 150th anniversary in 2010 with its re-edition the famous Silverstone Chronograph. One of the most coveted collector's TAG Heuer watches, the original Silverstone chronograph was introduced way back in 1974. Known for its cushion cut-shaped case, a shape chosen to resemble the Silverstone Circuit, a famous English racing track. The Silvertone Chronograph is similar in design to its predecessor, the Monaco who's square shaped case helped inspire the brands patented water-proofing system. Both the original Monaco and Silverstone featured the Chronomatic Calibre 11, a revolutionary movement that was the first movement that was a self-winding automatic chronograph with micro rotor.

The re-introduced version of the TAG Heuer Silverstone watch features an updated version of the Calibre 11, incorporating Dubois-Depraz module. The watch has a throwback to the brand's original Heuer logo displayed on the dial. The dial itself is available in blue or brown and has two silver counters at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions. The date can be viewed with the hand-applied date window at 6 o'clock. The watch has two stainless steel pushbuttons at the 2 and 4 o'clock positions. The watch is completed by a perforated alligator leather strap in brown or blue. TAG Heuer Silverstone is a limited and numbered edition of 1,500 pieces or each color.
