Most Popular

One of the enduring icons of the golden era of Formula 1, James Hunt was the rockstar racing driver and playboy who, along with Nikki Lauda, was also one half of one of the greatest rivalries in sport.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Hunt's 1976 Championship winning season, TAG Heuer have collaborated with the Hunt estate and the late champion's son Freddie Hunt, himself a racing driver, to produce a pair of limited edition timepieces that will be launched at the Goodwood Festival of Speed from 23 – 26 June 2016 before a wider general release.

Available with either a stainless steel bracelet or fabric NATO strap, both models feature a black sunray dial and red, white and yellow stripes emblazoned across the face; the same colours  that appeared on Hunt's racing kit and helmet. While the underside of the case features the watch's limited edition number along with Hunt's signature.

The watches are priced at £1,300 for the polished steel bracelet version, while the NATO strap model comes in at £1,150.

Time for a road trip to Sussex this June then?
