TAG Heuer – Carrera Calibre Heuer 01

Tag Heuer - Carrera Calibre Heuer 01

Presenting new TAG Heuer Carrera watch. It is completely new, starting with the case, movement and an incredible design. This watch is symbolically called ‘Heuer 01′ to pay homage of the founder – Edouard Heuer. ’01’ represents the horological growth of the Calibre 1887, on which the spine of the new collection will be based.

Fresh and dazzling design exposes the sophisticated chronograph with an openworked date mechanism on the dial side. New, massive case made of light titanium to provide a greater shock-resistance. This watch is the big step into the future. It shows how the TAG Heuer design should look like. Carrera collection is the TAG Heuer’s iconic one with the long design tradition. But, this watch interprets the Carrera into the modern times.

We still can notice the classic Carrera signs, but the new timepiece is more complex and its case consists of more parts assembled together. It is no longer constructed with the single piece traditionally used by TAG Heuer, but with the 12 different components. It gives the broad range of possibilities concerned with customization including the colours, materials, finishes and treatments.

The Heuer 01 movement is the progressive development of the Calibre 1887. It features the power reserve of 50 hours and consists of 39 jewels. The novelty about this movement is red wheel column – the eye-catching thing of this movement and the skeleton chronograph bridge with the black weight giving this watch and additional edge.

The chronograph features complications presented in 3 sub-dials. At 12 o’clock we can find a 30-minute indicator, 12-hour counter is situated at the 6 o’clock and the small-seconds are displayed in black sub-dial at 9 o’clock. Besides these complications we get a date display at 3 o’clock with the openworked date disc visible on a dial side. New Carrera Heuer 01 is completed by black perforated rubber strap for a sporty and stylish look, which is characteristic for TAG Heuer.
