Created, designed, hand-crafted and assembled in TAG Heuer’s workshops in la Chaux-de-Fonds in switzerland, TAG Heuer presents its emblematic manufacture movement in a full black version of the Carrera calibre Heuer 01 chronograph. With a skeletonized design, a modular case, an ultra-light material, the Carrera calibre Heuer 01 fits perfectly the « avant-garde » spirit of TAG Heuer.
Born in 1963 from the imagination of jack Heuer, the Carrera collection was inspired by the legendary “Carrera Panamericana Mexico road race.” In 2015, Carrera introduced its manufacture chronograph movement: the calibre Heuer 01 chronograph. In 2016, the Carrera calibre Heuer 01 chronograph comes back with a new case, made of ceramic with alternate finishings. TAG Heuer Carrera calibre Heuer 01 chronograph presents a supremely clean design revealing all the technical details of this movement. On the dial side the openworked date disc is visible. On the case-back, its red column wheel, the skeleton chronograph bridge and the back weight also draw the eye into the mechanism. The case is no longer the single piece traditionally used by TAG Heuer, but made of a steel container, on top of which a ceramic envelope is attached.
The movement is the TAG Heuer calibre Heuer 01 which is an automatic chronograph with date manufacture movement. The dial is black, skeletonized, with 3 counters. The indexes are hand-applied, polished and fine brushed with black luminescent markers. With a 45 mm diameter, the case is modular and made of polished black ceramic, giving the timepiece a unique and beautiful shine effect. Equipped with a scratch-resistant curved sapphire crystal with double anti-reflective treatment the chronograph has a water resistance of 100 meters. Finally it is adorned with a black perforated rubber strap and a black titanium carbide coated titanium folding clasp with safety push buttons.
The Carrera calibre Heuer 01 chronograph is a symbol of the «avant-garde» TAG Heuer spirit, always looking into the future and exploring possibilities.
