New York—TAG Heuer’s original racing chronograph, the Carrera, has gained four new models this month.
The Carrera originally launched in 1962, inspired by the Carrera Panamericana road race.
The four new Carrera Sport timepieces are powered by the Calibre Heuer 02 movement, entirely Swiss-made in TAG Heuer’s Chevenez manufacturing facility and visible through the transparent caseback.
The movement features 168 components, including a column wheel and a vertical clutch for improved timekeeping.
It boasts an impressive 80-hour power reserve and a thinner movement for more comfortable wear.
The Carrera Sport has a 44 mm stainless-steel case with choice of deep-blue dial with matching ceramic bezel, olive-green dial with stainless steel bezel, or a black dial with a black ceramic bezel.
Each sells for $5,750 except for a special rose gold version, which sells for $6,550.
The black ceramic bezel on this watch features rose gold-colored lacquer—a new design detail for TAG Heuer—and the crown and push buttons are rendered in 18-karat rose gold. It comes on a black leather strap.
