At Iconic Watches we like to occasionally obtain special editions and this month we are pleased to announce the Tag Heuer “ Ring Master ”.

Just recently, TAG Heuer introduced the Carrera Calibre 5 “Ring Master” as a tribute to boxing legend Muhammad Ali. This watch, a limited edition, is inspired by a 1957 Heuer called “Ring Master”. That 1957 (pocket) watch was a true sports timer, as it came with seven different rings that could be fitted. Each of these seven rings could be used for a specific sports type, and boxing was one of them.

The Calibre 5 “Ring Master” uses a similar ring, showing a red and black scale as well as a grey and black scale. The red and black scale can be used to time a heavy-weight boxing game. In Muhammad Ali’s days of boxing, there used to be 15 rounds (today it is 12) of three minutes each. After each round, there is a one-minute break. The other scale, the grey and black pattern, is for amateur and women’s boxing where there are two minute rounds followed by a one-minute break.

One model of the Calibre 5 “Ring Master” is made of gold, and originally came in a special box with a pair of gloves signed by Muhammad Ali. This set has been auctioned and proceeds are going to the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Centre. In total, $119,000 was raised for the Muhammad Ali Foundation.

The stainless steel model (Carrera Calibre 5 reference WAR2A11.FC6337)  is a limited edition, but not numbered. TAG Heuer does not disclose the number of total pieces for this watch. On the backside of the 43mm stainless steel case, you will find an engraved portrait of Muhammad Ali with the inscription “Tribute to Muhammad Ali”.
