The Swiss watchmaker just unveiled its new book, TAG Heuer Carrera: The Race Never Stops, on Tuesday.

Naturally, the $113 book doubles as eye-candy for your home. A faint black checkered print, reminiscent of the Carrera Panamericana race that inspired the watch’s name, envelops the cover. Its spine, meanwhile, dons a bright-red hue—similar to something you’d see on a classic Porsche Carrera GT. Stacked white pages, contrasted by a red-stripe effect, liven up its moody appearance, along with an image of a sleek Carrera watch on the front.
