Watch Review: Calibre 1887 Automatic Chronograph

LEGEND OF THE TRACK. TAG Heuer has long been linked to the world of motor racing, and their Calibre 1887 Automatic Chronograph sports watch is a tribute to the legacy.

In 1887, Edouard Heuer made history with the oscillating pinion, a development that revolutionized watchmaking. For the company’s 150th anniversary, TAG has given the oscillating pinion a contemporary redesign, re-engineering it in-house to create the Calibre 1887 movement. The watch highlights the unique beauty of this movement — with its blue column wheel, top quality Swiss balance spring with micro-blazed finishing, and TAG Heuer oscillating weight — through its stunning sapphire crystal case-back. The tachymeter scale on the satin-polished bezel identifies its motor-racing heritage, and the high-end finish and optimized proportions of the silver and black dial distinguish it instantly as a classic Carrera.
