According to the Forbes Rich List released in 2022, Elon Musk is the first richest person in the world with a wealth of $290.3 billion. Elon Musk owns Tesla Motors, SpaceX (the space development company), PayPal, in addition to companies about tunnels, solar energy and research related to the human brain. This watch is a Tag Heuer co-branded watch for his SpaceX company —- Replica Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887 Automatic Chronograph Space X 43 mm CAR2015.FC6321, based on Tag Heuer’s standard 1887 Carrera watch, but it has custom hands. I think the watch is like a souvenir for Musk personally, more like a career milestone.
The Case & Dial
This limited edition watch is called the Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887 SpaceX Chronograph replica, and will be part of a limited edition of 2,012 pieces. While it is branded SpaceX, the watch also celebrates the 50th anniversary of Tag Heuer’s status as “The First Swiss Watch In Space.” That same phrase is printed on the dial and caseback of the watch. In 1962, John Glenn wore a Tag Heuer stopwatch on his wrist over his flight suit when being launched into orbit around the earth. It was supposed to be a back-up clock or timer. This of course predated the Apollo XI mission to the moon later that decade.
I am not totally sure how SpaceX fits into that, but the little picture of a rocket on the front and rear of the watch is of a SpaceX rocket and capsule. The white dial with blued steel hands is very reminiscent of stopwatch-style dials, while also being quite instrumental in design. The Carrera SpaceX watch replica offers a clean, legible look that I think many watch lovers will appreciate. The SpaceX logo and rocket image on the rear of the watch is placed on the sapphire exhibition caseback window which is tinted.
The watch itself is 43mm wide and in steel. It looks good being polished and mixed with the more traditional looking dial. That gives it a nice tool/formal watch mix of aesthetic values. No doubt it has a bit of a retro flair. Inside the watch is the Calibre 1887 movement that the newer replica Tag Heuer Carrera watches contain. The 1887 is an in-house made movement using a base design that Tag Heuer modified from a high-end Seiko automatic chronograph caliber. It is a pretty good movement and feels a bit more interesting than the standard Swiss ETA 7750s contained in most Carrera timepieces.
Attached to the case is a brown suede-style leather strap with racing style perforations. The rugged looking strap helps give the instrument-style dial a bit more personality. The watch is also available on a metal Carrera bracelet – which will turn it into a watch that fits very well at SpaceX headquarters (I can imagine).
