A popular timepiece among motor sports drivers, professionals and fans since its inception in 1963, the TAG Heuer Carrera collection marks its 55th anniversary this year.
Now, TAG Heuer revisits the best-selling Heuer Carrera chronograph model to produce two new stylish, vintage-inspired timepieces. The TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 chronograph with a 41mm diameter steel case is available in a black version with a black leather strap and a blue version with a steel bracelet. With touches of red, the colours, contrasts and position of the counters are all clear references to motor sport.
Two sporty models with a vintage signature produced by the three white counters, which stand out starkly against a dial featuring a white flange with a 60-second scale. The seconds counter is at 9 o’clock, the minute counter at 12 o’clock and the hour counter at 6 o’clock. The bezel is made from ceramic, and features a tachometer scale – a crucial component on an automotive chronograph.
The black version is adorned with a magnificent perforated black leather strap with red stitching. The blue version features a steel bracelet for maximum comfort.
