TAG Heuer and Porsche teamed up once again to cerate a new sporty timepiece, a nod to the racing universe – the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche Orange Racing. The new watch is based on the famous TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph and follows the TAG Heuer Carrera x Porsche Limited Edition. It is fitted with the in-house Calibre Heuer 02, a movement manufactured entirely at TAG Heuer’s Chevenez facility and consisting of 168 parts, including a column wheel and a vertical clutch. These features allow for an impressive power reserve of 80 hours.
The design of the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche Orange Racing features a vibrant orange color that can be found throughout the watch. This hue is inspired by the color of the heat sparks made by the car on the asphalt. It can be seen on the Porsche logo on the bezel, as well as on the lacquer on the crown and the graphic details present in small touches on the dial, with “azuré” counters and an orange seconds hand. Black is also key color in this special edition. The TAG Heuer designers have used this color in various textures and finishings. The case received the highest-quality black treatment possible – diamond-like carbon (DLC), with its extremely deep, elegant color and unfailing resistance. The black dial finishing is inspired by kinetics and speed.
The custom-designed oscillating weight of the watch pays homage to the Porsche steering wheel. The weight is visible through the sapphire glass case back and is labeled with “Porsche” and “TAG Heuer” and features black and orange touches, such as the column wheel.
The timepiece comes on a carbon-like calfskin strap. Its stitching is a subtle nod to the seat upholstery of Porsche cars, with the dramatic contrast of the orange stitching and lining hinting at the racing marks cars make at high speed.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche Orange Racing is housed in specially designed co-branded TAG Heuer x Porsche black packaging with vibrant orange details. Available from February 2023, the new watch will be sold in TAG Heuer boutiques, on the brand’s e-commerce websites, and at select retail partners.
