TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph 160 Years Special Edition

Celebrating its 160th anniversary in style, TAG Heuer presents the third special edition anniversary watch from its signature TAG Heuer Carrera chronograph collection.

Also introduced this year, the first two models from the TAG Heuer Carrera 160 Years watch series are the Silver Dial and the Montreal Limited Editions. This third and final watch in the series is available in two versions: one with a blue dial and one with a white dial. Each version is powered by the Heuer 02 manufacture movement and limited to 1,860 pieces.

The TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph 160 Years Special Edition was inspired by the classic Heuer “Dato 45”, which in 1965 was notably the first Heuer wrist chronograph ever to feature a turning date disc. Like its famous ancestor, this special TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph has its date window positioned at 12 o’clock on the dial. The number of the limited edition – 1,860 of each version – is a nod to the year Edouard Heuer founded his watchmaking workshop in Switzerland’s Jura Mountains.

The TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph with the blue dial has a 44mm polished and fine-brushed stainless-steel case and features a blue ceramic bezel with a tachymeter scale. The blue circular brushed dial has contrasting white “azurage” chronograph subdials at 3 and 9 o’clock marking the elapsed minutes and hours, respectively. A blue opaline permanent seconds counter is positioned at 6 o’clock.

The white dial reference also has a robust 44mm polished and fine-brushed stainless-steel case, but its black ceramic bezel with a tachymeter scale offers a particularly bold contrast to the silver opaline dial. Black “azurage” minute and hour chronograph counters, at 3 and 9 o’clock, respectively, add to the striking look. A white opaline permanent seconds indicator is positioned at 6 o’clock.

On both versions, the applied rhodium-plated indexes and the rhodium-plated hour and minute hands are coated with white Super-LumiNova®, which offers outstanding legibility in all lighting conditions. The dial features a rhodium-plated TAG Heuer logo and is printed with the words “CARRERA HEUER 02 80 HOURS”.

The highlight of this model is the aperture at 12 o’clock displaying the red date on a white background – a nod to the original Heuer 3147N “Dato 45”, the watch that inspired the new timepieces. The red date is complemented by a red lacquered central chronograph seconds hand and red motion lines in the 3 o’clock counter. The dial is protected by a domed and bevelled sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on both sides.

The TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph has a stainless-steel screw-down caseback engraved with the words “ONE OF 1860”, indicating its limited-edition status. Through the sapphire crystal on the caseback, the Calibre Heuer 02 manufacture movement is on display with its specially dedicated 160th anniversary oscillating mass.

This chronograph model is water-resistant to 10 bar(100 metres/330 feet), and is presented on a stainless-steel H-shaped bracelet with a folding clasp secured by double safety push buttons. These outstanding limited-edition chronographs are delivered in a special box designed to celebrate TAG Heuer’s 160th anniversary.

The TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph Special Edition is powered by the Calibre Heuer 02 movement, visible through the transparent caseback. This sophisticated in-house calibre is entirely Swiss-made in TAG Heuer’s Chevenez manufacture. This movement comprises 168 individual components, including a column wheel and a vertical clutch – signatures of improved chronograph timekeeping and high-quality manufacture movements. This movement boasts an impressive power reserve of 80 hours.

The vertical clutch improves the precision of the chronograph start and stop functions as well as the running of the central chronograph seconds hand, which means that no time is lost when the chronograph is activated. And, with a column-wheel mechanism, the movement functions even more precisely.
