The Carrera turns 55 this year, and TAG Heuer is commemorating this significant product offering with a tourbillon chronograph chronometer guaranteed by the Besançon Observatory, right over the border from Switzerland in adjoining France. The confirmation, whose name signifies “Snake’s Head,” is incredibly uncommon. As per TAG Heuer, it’s been applied to just 500 watches taking all things together to date. Here, you can see the stamp on the watch’s scaffold. The new watch comes in a 45mm blue clay case. It includes the Heuer-02T development, a type that preceded the Heuer 02 chronograph development that has seen widespread use at TAG Heuer of late, most strikingly in the company’s Autavia range.
This is a major artistic tourbillon chronograph that comes in the modern translation of the Carrera case, a watch design that I have just composed bears more than a looking likeness to the Hublot Big Bang. This 155-piece restricted release presumably isn’t the sort of watch design that is probably going to pull in numerous HODINKEE readers’ consideration, however it is a demonstration of where TAG Heuer has come regarding development creation. Because of the type in this watch, I took in a year ago from TAG Heuer delegates, the watchmaker is at present the biggest producer of tourbillons in Switzerland. Valuing isn’t presently accessible for this new watch, yet a comparable non-artistic cased watch with this development dispatched in 2016 with a cost underneath CHF 15,000.
