To celebrate 55 years since the Heuer Carrera was created, TAG Heuer created a new edition of this iconic watch equipped with the Heuer 02 manufacture chronograph movement featuring a GMT function.
This new model adopts the design codes and DNA of the Heuer Carrera, featuring the original “3-6-9” counter layout from 1963. The chronograph minutes and hours are at 3 and 9 o’clock, with the permanent small second at 6 o’clock and the date window at 4:30, completed by the GMT function. It is the first time that TAG Heuer has added this complication to its prestigious manufacture movement.
The second time zone that can be adjusted with the crown is read using the lacquered red hand and the black and blue ceramic bezel, which has a 24-hour GMT scale. To ensure optimum legibility, the GMT hand has been ingeniously mounted in a secondary position — between the hour and minute hands — enabling it to pass over the indexes and skim the GMT scale.
The Heuer 02 manufacture movement, visible through the skeleton dial, is housed inside a solid 45 mm steel case, water-resistant to 100 metres.
