THROWBACK RACE-DAY. If you’re new to TAG Heuer and are now inquiring which automatic timepiece should be your first acquisition, then look no further than this vintage-looking Carrera Calibre 18.
The 39mm watch incorporates some of Carrera’s original elements—designed by the brand founder’s, third-generation watchmaker Jack Heuer, himself—such as the dial’s two-toned combination and glass box-shaped sapphire crystal. This new Calibre 18 even goes as far as having the inscription of the old Heuer logo below 12 o’clock. Some of the decidedly more modern features include the telemeter function (which measures distance in kilometers), the date display at 6 o’clock and the perforated black leather strap.
