To create its new Carrera Calibre 18 Chronograph, TAG Heuer has drawn inspiration from a true icon: the first chronograph specially designed for racing drivers, made by Jack Heuer in the 1960s.
It’s all there: the original Panda effect with two anthracite counters standing out against a silver-toned dial; robustness together with tried and trusted functionality, and even the historic Heuer logo. Topped by a spherical sapphire crystal inspired by the original model, this vintage-touch automatic chronograph is also equipped with a telemetric scale on its inner bezel ring.
This function was formerly used by the military to measure their distance from artillery fire based on the speed of sound.
Modern-day adventurers can use it to see how far they are from a storm. Mechanical automatic TAG Heuer chronograph calibre 18. Polished steel, 39 mm case.
