The new TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche Orange Racing watch showcases the enduring passion for racing shared by both brands. This new model is based on the famous Carrera Sport Chronograph and follows the TAG Heuer Carrera x Porsche Limited Edition.
It is power by the in-house Calibre Heuer 02, a movement manufactured entirely at TAG Heuer’s Chevenez facility. It has 168 parts, including a column wheel and a vertical clutch. Noted for its exceptional chronometric performance, this self-winding chronograph offers an impressive power reserve of 80 hours.
Black DLC Exterior with Orange Highlights
The design of the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche Orange Racing keeps with the unmistakable Porsche aesthetic but also the racing universe that surrounds it.
The vibrant orange color highlights are inspired by the color of the heat sparks made by the car on the asphalt. It also nods to the color of fire, an emblematic symbol of speed. This orange color can be seen on the Porsche logo on the bezel, as well as on the lacquer on the crown and the graphic details present in small touches on the dial, with “azuré” counters and an orange seconds hand.
The black color elegantly reinforces the brightness of the orange by contrast. To create this harmonious finish with tasteful touches of color, the TAG Heuer designers have used black in various textures and finishings.
The case has been given the highest-quality black treatment possible – diamond-like carbon (DLC). The black dial finishing is inspired by kinetics and speed.
The custom- designed oscillating weight, which pays homage to the Porsche steering wheel. The weight is visible through the sapphire glass case back and is labelled with “Porsche” and “TAG Heuer” and features black and orange touches.
The black carbon-like calfskin strap with vivid orange highlights evokes the racing inspiration of the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche Orange Racing. Its stitching takes inspiration from the seat upholstery of Porsche cars.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche Orange Racing comes in a co-branded TAG Heuer x Porsche black packaging with vibrant orange details.
Available from February 2023, this new timepiece will be sold in TAG Heuer boutiques, on the brand’s e-commerce websites, and at select retail partners.
