TAG Heuer revealed the 2022 edition of its iconic TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph – a watch of choice of some of Formula 1’s greatest teams and drivers. The timepiece features a sophisticated deep black dial with golden gilded subdials. Watch lovers will appreciate and recognize the two-tone palette of the legendary John Player Special livery which stood out in Formula 1 in the 1970s and 80s. TAG Heuer ambassador and world champion Ayrton Senna’s 98T Lotus sported the world-famous livery at the beginning of his career.
The classic 42-mm case is made of solid 18K 3N yellow gold, with gold pushers and crown. The rich black sunray brushed dial brings subtle play of light to the wrist. Contrasting against the deep black dial are two “azuré” and gilded gold chronograph subdials at 3 and 9 o’clock. At 6 o’clock a permanent second indicator and date window finish the harmonious tricompax layout. The indexes and hands are plated in 18K 3N yellow gold and polished, enhancing the dial’s legibility and elegance.
The case back features a sapphire crystal through which the movement and custom black oscillating mass can be admired. The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph is powered by the Calibre Heuer 02, the brand’s in-house chronograph movement. With its vertical clutch and column wheel, it offers excellent timekeeping precision and performance along with a power reserve of 80 hours. The piece is presented on a large-scale black alligator strap with a gold pin buckle.
The black and gold design evokes all the excitement, glamour, and thrills of racing and carries on Jack Heuer’s vision faithfully into a resolutely modern piece.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph is available exclusively in TAG Heuer boutiques, on the brands’ e-commerce websites, and at select retail partners.
