TAG Heuer Carrera Automatic
Chronograph Men's Watch
Exclusive to Beaverbrooks in the UK, this TAG Heuer Carrera Day-Date Calibre 16 Chronograph takes sport inspired style to the next level. The leader of the Carrera pack, the Carrera Day-Date Chronograph model is bigger, bolder and more intricately designed than most of the Carrera range and is perfect for those looking for statement style and something more modern than the standard Carrera chronograph.
Iconic Design Influence
Borrowing its impressive design cues from the TAG Heuer Carrera 360 which launched in 2006 as well as the Carreras of the 1960’s, the Carrera Day-Date Chronograph is the grown-up big brother of the Carrera Calibre 16 date model. Taking an already iconic aesthetic and making it even more impressive, the day-date model goes for the ‘more is more’ approach, creating a more technical and sporty style with an array of patterned surfaces, applied markers, printed text and intricate detailing.
Design flourishes borrowed from the Carrera Calibre 360 include the imposing oversized 43mm stainless steel case which is also slightly deeper than others in the collection such as the calibre S, lending it a reassuringly heavy feel on the wrist.
With plenty of information on display on this striking watch, the minute and seconds hash-marks have been located on an angled inner-bezel, freeing up plenty of room on the sunbrushed anthracite dial for the signature applied rhodium plated minute markers, which are arranged in 5-minute increments and accentuated by small triangles on the inner-bezel.
Also inspired by the Carrera 360 as well as the Grand Carrera and the Monaco V4, is the distinctive double crown which accentuates its bold design.
Attention To Detail
Showcasing an undeniably busy aesthetic, surprising little design cues reveal a supreme attention to detail which is characteristic of TAG Heuer.
The black ceramic tachymeter scale matches beautifully with the anthracite sunray brushed dial, which is given a hint of adrenaline with red-tipped central, hour and minute hands.
Texture is added to the design with the hour and minute subdials being finished with the characteristic circular ‘record’ azurage, whilst the slightly recessed permanent second indicator at 9 o’clock features a sunray brushed finish.
Absolutely nothing has escaped attention in this beautifully finished timepiece – the day and date window has a cleverly angled window which increases the sense of depth, and even modest features such as the crown and chronograph pusher have been finished with a black and red band respectively.
Retaining the clear sapphire crystal caseback that was missing from some of the earlier Carrera Calibre 16 models, the calibre 16 automatic chronograph movement can be clearly seen in action in this edition. Arguably one of the most famous and versatile automatic chronograph movements ever created, this year sees the 10th anniversary of its creation.
