    Interestingly, I came across two recent articles on Elon Musk and his TAG Heuer Calibre 1887 SpaceX watch.

    Musk has been photographed wearing a special edition TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887 SpaceX Chronograph, branded with a SpaceX rocket on the front and rear of the case of the watch.

    Musk is not really a swanky watch kind of guy, instead, when he is seen with a timepiece, it happens to be his TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887 Space X chronograph.

    Signed with SpaceX rocket motifs on the front and caseback of the chronograph, TAG Heuer released the Carrera Calibre 1887 Space X as a limited edition of 2012 models, celebrating SpaceX’s lofty ambitions to have its maiden flight by 2022 and it’s first manned mission to mars by 2024.



    I like how calibre11.com referred to SpaceX back in this 2012 article:
    https://www.calibre11.com/tag-heuer-carrera-spacex-1887/

    There is a cool story to go with the new Carrera, with TAG Heuer sending the watch into Space as part of its association with a US company called SpaceX.

    In time, this might be likened to referring to Musk's other company as "a US car company called Tesla".

    I didn't think this model had anything to do with Elon Musk and his project.

    I class a spacex as pretty swanky, but maybe not for a billionaire

    hah, you’re right! I’d never heard of Space-X when I wrote that article.
