TAG Heuer has launched a special edition, gold-cased Carrera chronograph with a first dial design that echoes the famous Heuer reference 1158 CHN. Collectors can also spy a two-tone color palette of the John Player Special livery from Formula 1 in the 1970s and 1980s.
New 18-carat gold TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph.
The new TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph features a 42mm yellow gold case with matching gold pushers and crown. Its impressive black sunburst brushed dial plays beautifully with the prominent gilded dial elements.
The most spectacular of these elements are the two gilded gold chronograph sub-dials at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock. TAG Heuer also plates the matching hands and indexes with yellow gold to heighten the retro luxury factor of the entire piece.
Through the clear sapphire back, TAG Heuer displays its own Caliber Heuer 02, equipped with a customized black oscillating mass. With a vertical clutch and column wheel, the movement offers a power reserve of an impressive eighty hours. Finally, TAG Heuer matches the gold watch with a black alligator strap with a gold pin buckle.
