The TAG-Heuer Carrera Automatic watch is an elegant reinterpretation of the classic Carrera chronograph watch, which was introduced by the company in 1963. Ideal for those who admire the rich history of TAG-Heuer and the famous Carrera watch, but don’t prefer or require a chronograph complication, the TAG-Heuer Carrera Automatic watch is sporty, yet extremely refined – a precisely crafted companion which demonstrates elegant understatement upon its owners wrist. The 39-millimeter stainless steel case of the TAG-Heuer Carrera Automatic watch is classical in its proportions, with the subtle angling on the edges of the case lugs providing a gentle visual contrast that is striking against the more flat planes. Precisely machined and polished, it is also tough, and warranted water resistant to 50 meters.
Beyond the attractive yet rugged exterior of the TAG-Heuer Carrera Automatic watch lies an equally distinguished mechanical heart; the automatic-winding Calibre 5 movement has been carefully adjusted by TAG-Heuer’s watchmakers to be precise and extremely reliable, in both timekeeping and function. Fully wound, this mechanism has a power reserve of more than 42-hours, and a date display is also incorporated, which can be easily adjusted forward to account for the varying lengths of months. The TAG-Heuer Carrera Automatic watch is available in several attractive variants. The dial of the Carrera is distinguished by its recessed center section, slim baton hour markers, and impeccable overall detailing; mirror-polished baton hands with luminous applications ensure that the time can be easily read by day or night; visibility through the domed sapphire crystal is exceptional.
The watch is completed by a black or a tan calfskin strap, which joins to the wrist via a precise deployant buckle bearing the TAG-Heuer logo. For those who appreciate the durability and visual brilliance of a bracelet, a finely crafted link band is optional; with five alternating rows of brushed and polished elements, this bracelet is a perfect match to the timeless profile of the Carrera’s stainless steel case, infusing it with casual elegance.
