New Video: 24-hours of Le Mans with TAG Heuer
The 24 Hours of Le Mans is the world’s oldest car race, held annually since 1923. It’s also one of the toughest events in motorsport history.
Not only must teams handle driving their cars for more than 24-hours without stop, but engineers must keep the car physically going on the track.
But it’s not without its positives; Le Mans attracts some of the biggest names in the world of motorsports, as well as brands who value motorsport pedigree and heritage.
This year Esquire teamed up with TAG Heuer to visit the 24-hour race in Le Mans, and document some of the more interesting aspects of the race.
We also had a chance to check out the brand new limited edition Monaco wristwatch, developed in celebration of the 50-year anniversary of the watch.
The new Monaco features a red-dial inspired by the 1980s, but with the same chronograph function that made the original such a draw to those involved in motor racing.
But don’t take our word for it, check out the video below:
