TAG Heuer Carrera Heritage Collection

Swiss watch brand TAG Heuer expands its popular Carrera range with the new Heritage Collection. This new series is comprised of two models: Carrera Calibre 6 Heritage 39mm and CARRERA Calibre 16 Heritage Chronograph 41mm.

In 1963 Jack W. Heuer, the son of Charles-Edouard Heuer, started work on a new chronograph specifically designed for drivers and motor-racing enthusiasts. A life-long fan of the sport himself, he knew what it was needed: a wide-open, easy-to-read dial and a shock-resistant and waterproof case tough enough for road wear.

The following year he launched the result, a mechanical, manual-wound chronograph called the Carrera. For the name, he reached back to a racing legend from the 1950s, the Carrera Pan Americana, a five-day, 3,300 kilometers (2,100 mile) race across Mexico.

The most prestigious — and dangerous — endurance race of its day, the Carerra, which in Spanish mean “competition of the highest order” remains synonymous with excitement, danger, adventure, and heroism.

It was the perfect name for Jack’s most ambitious creation to date. The elegant simplicity, purity and sobriety of the optimized dial design made the Carrera a huge success and launched a golden era of creativity and innovation for the Heuer brand. Among their first wearers were every Ferrari Scuderia driver — legends like Carlos Reutemann, Clay Regazzoni, Jacky Ickx, Niki Lauda, Mario Andretti, Gilles Villeneuve and Jody Scheckter.

Other 70s greats also wore the watch, including Jo Siffert, Ronnie Peterson, Emerson Fittipaldi, Denis Hulme and John Surtees. Jack W. Heuer’s all-time favorite watch, the extremely rare Carrera 18 Karat Gold, dates from this era.

New editions and innovations continued through the 1990s and into the 21st century. Motor racing will always be the inspiration of the Carrera, but watchmaking savoir-faire drives it forward. The most recent example of its avant-garde position is last year’s Carrera Calibre 1887 Chronograph, TAG Heuer’s first high-volume fully integrated column-wheel chronograph movement produced in-house. It won the “La Petite Aiguille” 2010 Best Watch of the Year Award at the Grand Prix de l’Horlogerie de Genève

This year, once again challenging existing rules and conventions, TAG Heuer again surprises with the Carrera Heritage Collection, a watch and a chronograph with classic looks, yet deeply rooted in the Carrera legacy.

The Carrera Heritage Collection reinterprets the most iconic timepiece of motor racing through the prism of 150 years of horological tradition. It is not retro but vintage: the classic codes of a golden age of watchmaking are respected and lovingly reinterpreted.

The case is polished to a glowing luster, as is the monochrome TAG Heuer logo. On some versions, the hands are a deep and burnished blue. Exquisite “flinqué” engraving texture adorns the dial; for the flange and counters, vintage minuterie. Even the hand shape is historically accurate.

The polished and raised Arabic numerals come from an earlier source in the TAG Heuer library: a Heuer watch from 1945. The pushbutton, digits, crown and index designs are also from this earlier “muse”.

The Carrera Heritage Collection is available in a 39mm watch edition equipped with an automatic Calibre 6 movement with an azurage embossed small second counter and the date at 6 o’clock.
