Key guests including brand pal Scotty James, social media influencer Elle Ferguson, design guru Neale Whitaker and actor Lincoln Younes had a fun Q&A between MC Allison Langdon and Hemsworth about his favourite TAG Heuer Carrera series watch. As a special piece for the event, Hemsworth presents a one-of-a-kind TAG Heuer Carrera watch, co-designed and manufactured exclusively for the event. Inspired by Chris’ own unique style, the Carrera Calibre Heuer 02 watch features a 43mm case, in-house Calibre Heuer 02 movement, a black perforated rubber strap and a unique blue skeleton dial. With Chris’ signature on the back of the case, and a special edition watch box included, it was auctioned off for the Australian Children’s Fund that night, raising a total of $35,000 for the charity. As a father with over 20 years of experience as a social worker with his parents, Hemsworth is a passionate supporter of the foundation.
