TAG Heuer releases blue-green edition of its iconic Carrera model
The Swiss watchmaker evokes its original 1963 Carrera with new enlarged design
Iconic Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer has launched a new limited edition green version of its classic Carrera model.
Limiting the new model to just 500 pieces, the watchmaker has given its Carrera a deep blue-green makeover, paying homage to the brand’s motor racing heritage and harking back to the original 1963 model of the watch, boasting the same signature lugs, stylish case, polished push buttons and dial.
However, with an enlarged 39mm diameter, a minute chronograph at 3 o’clock, hour chronograph at 9 o’clock and permanent second indicator at 6 o’clock, the new design features contemporary flourishes that keep it up-to-date with the latest trends.
The watch also contains the Calibre Heuer 02 manufacture movement, a cutting-edge automatic chronograph movement made exclusively in Switzerland at the TAG Heuer factory in Chevenez, comprised of 168 parts including a column wheel and vertical clutch.
