Introducing the TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph

Elevated to the rank of watch icon through decades of striking renditions, the TAG Heuer Carrera - original racing chronograph since 1963 - has once again been reimagined in a range of contemporary yet timeless models. Available to buy online or at our Eastbourne, East Sussex store, the new models mark the beginning of a new era for the TAG Heuer Carrera collection. 

The Unique History of Jack Heuer's Proudest Creation

In 1962, CEO at the time Jack Heuer heard the story of the legendary Carrera Panamericana race. Spanish for 'road', 'race', 'career' and 'course', the name Carrera caught his attention and he knew immediately that it would be a perfect name for a timepiece. The following year, the first TAG Heuer Carrera chronographs left the factory. With their bold and confident design reflecting his passion for action and his understanding that, in racing as well as elsewhere, legibility is crucial. Supremely reliable and exceptionally elegant, the TAG Heuer Carrera chronograph soon became the instrument of choice for driving legends such as Jo Siffert and the entire Scuderia Ferrari, and Jack Heuer's proudest creation.

A New Era of Iconic TAG Heuer Carrera Watches

Embodying the spirit of endurance, with a refined and timeless yet still bold and striking design, the brand new TAG Heuer Carrera chronograph watches showcase a 44mm stainless steel case which features alternating polished and fine-brushed finishes that make the watch appear sleeker and thinner. With shorter lugs for enhanced comfort, the improved integration of the glass and the slight bevel also improves its aesthetics.

The dial of the new TAG Heuer Carrera has a circular brushed finish and is available in deep blue with a matching ceramic bezel, muted olive green with a stainless-steel bezel or one of two black versions, each with a sleek, black ceramic bezel. The flange is bevelled and the indexes slant towards the centre of the dial, drawing the wearer’s eye to the time and allowing them to read it at a glance. The three subdials are perfectly legible, as is the date window at 6 o’clock. The hour counter at 9 o’clock now features the numerals 12, 4 and 8, offering a visual balance to the minute counter at 3 o’clock. The new H-shaped bracelet is thinner, making it slightly lighter and more ergonomic.

Exceptional Performance with the Calibre HEUER 02 Manufacture Movement

The TAG Heuer Carrera line has always featured the brand’s most advanced watchmaking technology. The redesigned models are powered by the Calibre Heuer 02 movement, visible through the transparent caseback. This sophisticated in-house innovation is entirely Swiss-made in TAG Heuer's Chevenez manufacture. This movement comprises 168 components, including a column wheel and a vertical clutch – signatures of improved chronograph timekeeping and high-quality manufacture movements –, and boasts an impressive power reserve of 80 hours.

A pillar of the brand’s collections since its creation in 1963, the original TAG Heuer Carrera was a high-precision “race-car dashboard for the wrist”, designed to meet the unique technical demands of the world’s top drivers – and to reflect their elegant style. Today, the new TAG Heuer Carrera collection is an authentic and contemporary tribute to this timeless icon, featuring an unprecedented level of luxury at the cutting-edge of watchmaking innovation. Simple, refined and legible: rarely do aesthetics and functionality so flawlessly intermesh as with the new TAG Heuer Carrera chronographs.
