Go for Gold: TAG Heuer unveils a new Carrera Chronograph

As part of the Carrera’s 60th anniversary celebrations and as tribute to the vintage era, TAG Heuer introduces the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph

The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph represents more than just a timekeeping instrument; it stands as a testament to TAG Heuer’s commitment to crafting watches with a profound connection. The story of this design traces its origins to Jack Heuer himself: the visionary who introduced the concept of gifting gold timepieces to racing drivers. This act cemented an unbreakable bond between TAG Heuer and the world of motorsports. These timepieces transcended their role as mere rewards; they became loyal companions on the quest for victory.

This element of vintage charm is also reflected in the 18K 3N yellow gold dial of the new Carrera Chronograph , with contrasting black “azuré” subdials at 3 and 9 o’clock, reminiscent of the iconic reverse panda configuration. However, the definite highlight of this timepiece is the golden case with the innovative Glassbox design that encompasses the watch’s overall aesthetics. Viewed from the side, the new TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph exhibits smooth curves, thanks to the domed sapphire crystal. Its sleek case and avant-garde lugs add fresh and elegant touches to the 2023 Carerra collection, making it a standout piece.

The curved flange not only enhances visibility but also simplifies the reading of the 60-second/minute scale encircling the edge of the dial. To ensure optimal legibility, the black lacquered central hand creates a striking juxtaposition against the luxurious gold dial, while the vertical brushed finish evokes the spirit of racetrack markings.

Inside the 39mm diameter case, the new Carrera Chronograph is powered by the TH20-00 movement, which features bi-directional winding and an impressive 80-hour power reserve. To complete the luxurious yet sporty look, TAG Heuer pairs the watch with a classic perforated rally strap in deep black calfskin, secured with an 18K 3N yellow gold pin buckle.

With its racing-inspired heritage and a touch of exclusivity and luxury, the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph serves as a symbol of accomplishment, inspiring wearers to embark on their own paths to success, much like the legendary drivers throughout history.
