To celebrate the 80th birthday of TAG Heuer Honorary Chairman Jack Heuer, Swiss luxury watch brand has launched two special edition Carrera timepieces.
The first was designed by Jack Heuer himself and produced in a limited edition of 3,000 pieces. The second draws its inspiration from the groundbreaking Mikrogirder and Jack helped with the design. The editions are inspired by the original 1963 Carrera with leading-edge technical details from motor racing and aeronautics.
TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887 Chronograph Jack Heuer Edition 45mm
This timepiece has a TAG Heuer logo on its anthracite gray-inside-black dial, and the audacious 39-jewel Calibre 1887 automatic chronograph movement inside.
The asymmetrical case design of the Carrera Calibre 1887 Chronograph Jack Heuer Edition 45mm is based on the TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrogirder watch – slightly rising at an angle at the top, where the crown and chronograph pushers are located. Find more details about this timepiece here.
TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 17 Jack Heuer 80 years Edition 41mm
This model features a 41mm diameter stainless steel and has a vintage red Heuer logo on its anthracite dial, overtop a 37-jewels Calibre 17 automatic chronograph movement.
The leather strap on the Cal 17 edition is perforated black with red lining; the Cal 1887’s is solid black with a red back. Red second hands and red-tipped counter hands bring extra dram to the look. Date windows are at 6 o’clock, the counters at 3 and 9. Its reference number is CV2119.FC6310.
Jack Heuer’s coat of arms and signature in red decorate the smoked sapphire case-back, through which can be seen. In every way, these are stunning tributes to the singular vision of a pioneer in technology and design.
