TAG Heuer CARRERA Calibre 1887 Chronograph “Racing” (43mm)

The Carrera Calibre 1887 Racing Chronograph is an authentic racing timepiece with serious design flair. New detailing include a sandblasted black titanium case, ceramic bezel with tachymetre scale, re-engineered black folding clasp for the high-tech “soft-touch” alligator strap. The caseback, now in smoked sapphire, offers full viewing of the impressive Calibre 1887. The counter-inspired numerals are in hand-applied black gold, as is the date window.
