TAG Heuer's newest timepieces

TAG Heuer has crafted and perfected the art of linking race cars and watches. The newest timepieces by the luxury chronograph-makers are a fine example of intricacy in design and unmatched style.

     CARRERA (43mm) Calibre 1887 Chronograph                   MONACO (37mm) Calibre 6 Automatic 2014                        CARRERA “Dashboard" (45mm) Calibre 1887 

TAG Heuer CARRERA (43mm) Calibre 1887 Chronograph - Monaco Grand Prix Limited Edition

Jack Heur first designed Carrera for professional drivers and sports-car enthusiasts back in 1963. The newest addition is standard issue for McLaren drivers and pays tribute to the Monaco Grand Prix. The race’s name is lettered in red on its ceramic bezel with tachymetre scale, and its official logo is engraved on the sapphire caseback, along with the limited edition number (0001/2,500). Beneath the glass beats TAG Heuer’s 100% in-house manufactured Calibre 1887 movement. The fetching dial is in black, with two grey stripes and a red line. The hands and hand-applied Arabic numerals are in special “black gold” plating. The 43mm case is in sandblasted Titanium Grade 2 with black titanium carbide coating. The black rubber strap is embossed with a unique tire design inspired by the F1 tires of Carrera’s birth year 1963.

TAG Heuer MONACO (37mm) Calibre 6 Automatic 2014 – Full Black

The 2014 Monaco Calibre 6 is a daring new edition to the classic Monaco design, which was first launched in 1969. It is truly a beauty in black with black titanium carbide-coated case (with special fine-brushed and polished finishings) and crown, black dial with white luminescent markers and high-contrast red small second hand, and a black sub-counter with opalin finishing. The perforated calfskin leather strap with red lining adds that final touch of masculinity.

TAG Heuer CARRERA “Dashboard" (45mm) Calibre 1887 Chronograph

This spectacular chronograph takes its design cues from TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrogirder, winner of the “Aiguille d’Or”— the highest award in Swiss Watchmaking—at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève in 2012. Classic stopwatch and car-racing aesthetics inspire its black dial with sunray effect and hand-applied Arabic numerals, and chronograph sub-counters with silver polished outlines. The 45mm case is in polished, fine-brushed and sandblasted steel and titanium, with black titanium-carbide coated fixed bezel and sides. The smoked sapphire caseback puts the daring in-house Calibre 1887 movement on display. The strap is in soft-touch black alligator, with black titanium folding clasp and safety pushbuttons.
