TAG Heuer revealed the innovative TAG Heuer Carrera Plasma Diamant d’Avant-Garde embellished with 124 custom-made lab-grown diamonds of a total on 15.5 carats on the aluminum bezel and bracelet, as well as on the chronograph case, crown, dial, and indexes. The timepiece is powered by the Calibre Heuer 02 Tourbillon Nanograph movement, delivering exceptional levels of anti-magnetism, shock resistance, and stability across temperature ranges.
The new TAG Heuer Carrera Plasma Diamant D’Avant-Garde is a matte black chronograph features highly legible, uncluttered bicompax dial, facetted lugs, sporty elegance, reliability, and a timeless spirit. The 44-mm case, bezel and bracelet are made of sleek black sandblasted anodized aluminum, set with lab-grown diamonds of various imaginative shapes throughout. The case includes 48 lab-gown diamonds for 4.3 carats, the bezel features 26 for a total of 1.9 carats, while the bracelet holds 34 for a total weight of 1,9 carat.
The crown is a 2.5-carat single lab-grown diamond, cut specifically for this watch. The two steel chronograph pushers at 2 and 6 o’clock have been enhanced with a black DLC coating, to match the watch’s modern matte aesthetic and boldly frame the bright diamond crown.
The dial is made of 4.9 carats composed of 12 diamonds and 3 polycrystalline diamond plates. The brilliant result is achieved by growing a vast number of diamond crystals as one as well as creating breathtaking reflections and light effects in a single diamond entity. This unique dial features 12 indexes made of white gold set with lab-grown diamonds. The hours and minutes hands are rhodium-plated with matte black lacquer and white Super-LumiNova® for optimal legibility, joining the fine rhodium-plated central hand. Two elegantly contrasting minutes and hours chronograph sub-counters are located at 3 and 9 o’clock. They are made of black polycrystalline diamond and garnished by finely polished rhodium-plated hands.
The black aluminum bracelet is decorated with 34 avant-garde diamonds of a total 1.9 carats ; it is fastened by a steel double folding clasp with safety push buttons, in matching matte black.
The Calibre Heuer 02 Tourbillon Nanograph is developed and manufactured in-house. The COSC-certified chronograph movement features a tourbillon, beating through the dial at 6 o’clock. It offers a 65-hour power reserve in a unique version especially developed for the TAG Heuer Carrera Plasma. This special edition has been hand-finished and features the oscillating weight in the form of the TAG Heuer shield.
A limited number of CHF 500’000 pieces will hit the TAG Heuer stores worldwide in September 2023.
