- TAG Heuer is pursuing this
path further by equipping its
Carrera model with a Heuer 02
chronograph calibre featuring a
frequency of 4 Hz and a power
reserve of 75 hours. At 6.95 mm
thick, this automatic movement
comprises 168 components, a
pillar wheel and a vertical clutch.
Featuring traditional finishes
visible through the sapphire
case-back, this TAG Heuer
proprietary mechanism offers
maximum space for the counters
on the dial side, resulting in visual
harmony and perfect legibility.
Synonymous with the world of motor sport – it takes its name from the famous Carrera Panamericana race – the first Heuer Carrera was created in 1963 by Jack Heuer. Its revolutionary dial made it a ground-breaking model for the time. Thanks to its modernism and minimalism, it quickly became an international success.
Since then, the collection has been expanded year after year with the addition of new models renowned for both the creativity and technical innovation they represent. One such example is the TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrogirder, which offers accuracy to 5/10,000ths of a second and 7.2 million vibrations per hour. Others include the Calibre Heuer 01 manufacture movement and the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45, the first TAG Heuer high-end modular connected watch to carry the Swiss Made stamp. Swiss tradition connected to the future.
