TAG Heuer reinterprets the timeless design of the iconic Carrera Chronograph in a stunning black and yellow gold execution.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph was born in 1963. It has taken on many celebrated expressions, yet the yellow gold pieces of this collection always stand apart. With its sophisticated deep black dial, the 2022 gold edition continues to build on this rich lineage of legendary racing timepieces.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph was designed for racetrack thanks to its highly legible, uncluttered dial, sleek lines, and high- performance movements. In 1970 the first yellow gold automatic models were introduced, the Heuer reference 1158 CHN, which were then-CEO’s Jack Heuer’s personal favorite.
TAG Heuer continues to build on this unique legacy and introduces a novel dial design, black with golden gilded subdials, an inverted version of the famed Heuer reference 1158 CHN.
The classic 42-mm case is made of solid 18K 3N yellow gold, with gold pushers and crown. The rich black sunray brushed dial brings sophistication, depth, and subtle play of light to the wrist.
The deep black dial comes with two “azuré” and gilded gold chronograph subdials at 3 and 9 o’clock. At 6 o’clock a small second indicator and date window complete the harmonious tricompax layout. The indexes and hands are plated in 18K 3N yellow gold and polished, enhancing the dial’s legibility and elegance.
The case back features a sapphire crystal through which the movement and custom black oscillating mass are clearly visible. The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph is powered by the Calibre Heuer 02, the brand’s in-house chronograph movement. This high-precision vertical clutch and column wheel chronograph movement provides a power reserve of 80 hours.
The new Carrera Chronograph in yellow gold is presented on a large-scale black alligator strap with a gold pin buckle.
Available from 17 November 2022, the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph will be sold exclusively in TAG Heuer boutiques, on the brands’ e-commerce websites, as well as at select retail partners.
