TAG Heuer is presenting today four new, updated Carrera models, all controlled by the in-house fabricated Caliber Heuer 02 development.
In 1962, CEO at the time Jack Heuer needed a perfect and proportional chronograph intended for drivers and roused to the universe of engine dashing.
At the point when he heard the Spanish word Carrera, utilized for the famous Carrera Panamericana race, he adored the sound and the numerous implications – including street, race, course and vocation – such a lot of that he immediately concluded that the item must be classified “Carrera”. The Heuer Carrera was dispatched in 1963 and from that point forward it has been an image of the brand and perhaps the most famous sport chronographs at any point planned (you can peruse the complete history of TAG Heuer here ).
With the new Carrera Sport Chronograph 44 mm Caliber Heuer 02 Automatic, the Swiss brand returns the assortment to the roots with a smoothed out plan that is complemented by the remarkable exhibitions conveyed by the Heuer 02 type.
The new Carrera models come in 44 mm hardened steel cases substituting cleaned and fine-brushed completions that feature the sporty lines. For improved comfort on the wrist, they include more limited drags. They offer water opposition up to 10 bar (100 meters/330 feet).
Ensured by a domed and inclined sapphire gem with twofold enemy of intelligent treatment, the dial of the new Carrera has a round brushed completion and is available in dark blue with a coordinating ceramic bezel, quieted olive green with a tempered steel bezel or one of two dark forms, each with a dark earthenware bezel. The most valuable rendition includes a dark artistic bezel loaded up with rose-gold-shaded veneer – a first for TAG Heuer – and the crown and press catches are produced using strong 18K rose gold.
The chronograph hour and moment snailed counters are situated at 9 and 3 o’clock separately while, at 6 o’clock, we locate the more modest running seconds counter and the date opening. The outcome is an even and symmetrical 3-6-9 format.
The applied records and the hour and moment hands are treated with white Super-LumiNova for improved intelligibility in helpless light conditions.
