With a new automatic movement, Tag Heuer updates its Carrera range

 

The luxury watchmaker TAG Heuer unveiled its new Carrera range of watches only six months after the launch of the Carrera Heuer-01. The collection, which features a brand-new TAG Heuer watch mechanism, will be on display at Baselworld from March 22 through March 27.

TAG Heuer is commemorating its 55th birthday this year. The Caliber Heuer 02, a COSC-certified automatic chronograph coupled with a titanium and carbon flying tourbillon, is being released by the Swiss watchmaker to commemorate the event. The famed seven-day “Carrera Panamericana” road race that was staged in Mexico is whence the collection gets its name. It was regarded as the most hazardous race of any kind in the world and ran for five straight years, from 1950 to 1954.

The handcrafted timepiece is equipped with a brand-new TAG Heuer watch movement, according to the press release. A column wheel and a vertical coupling-clutch are two of the 168 parts that make up this. A single barrel houses the mechanical movement’s 75-hour power reserve. The 3-6-9 sub-dial configuration on the watch face displays the chronograph minutes and hours, and there is also a little date window.

Although a 45mm version with a GMT function may emerge later, the watch is now available with a somewhat skeletonized 43mm broad case. It has a steel case that is 100 m water resistant, is available in ceramic, carbon, or gold, and has a strap made of rubber, leather, ceramic, or metal.

There will be a total of 12 different designs available. Each timepiece will go through 21 days of testing before hitting the shelves. Pricing is still unknown but will be available in June. But it’s obvious that this will only be for people with substantial financial resources.
