Jack Heuer visits Laing the Jeweller to launch one-off piece
The honorary chairman of Tag Heuer visited Laing the Jeweller in Edinburgh to officially launch the brand in the new Laing Watch Gallery with a one-off timepiece, on August 9.
Jack Heuer, the great grandson of the founder of the luxury watch brand, Edouard Heuer, visited Edinburgh for the first time, as part of a tour of Scotland with his family to discover his Scottish roots, and unveiled a limited edition Carerra Calibre Jack Heuer 80th Birthday 41mm chronograph.
He designed the one-off limited edition 41mm chronograph to celebrate his 80th birthday. The exclusive design has a large opening with counters at three and nine o’clock – a feature from the original design – in a sunray grey dial with iconic Heuer logo and touch of red. In addition, the back shows Jack Heuer’s signature together with the Heuer family coat of arms dating back to the 15th century.
Jack Heuer said: “This Limited Edition Heuer Carrera chronograph has been created by me and is launched to celebrate my 80th birthday.”
Laing the Jeweller has the timepiece available for sale at £3,450 with the box personally signed by Jack Heuer himself.
