The TAG-Heuer Carrera Automatic Chronograph Tachymetre watch is a mechanical chronograph whose fine technical elements and rich historical lineage are equally impressive. Tracing its design back to the iconic Carrera chronograph introduced by Heuer in 1963, the new TAG-Heuer Carrera Automatic Chronograph watches are sure to appeal to those who value rich history – as well as performance and style – in a sports timepiece.
The heart of the TAG-Heuer Carrera Automatic Chronograph Tachymetre watch is the precise and reliable Calibre 16 movement. In addition to the normal functions of time, subsidiary seconds, and date, this mechanism also incorporates a chronograph that can record time intervals of up to 12 hours in duration. As suits a watch which was originally created for race-car drivers, the tachymeter bezel enables the chronograph to be utilized in the measurement of average speed or rates. Extraordinarily consistent in both its timekeeping and its mechanical reliability, the Calibre 16 movement winds efficiently upon the wrist of an active wearer, and has a power-reserve of more than 44 hours.
In terms of style, the TAG-Heuer Carrera Automatic Chronograph Tachymetre watch has a design which is timeless in its masculine appeal. The 41-millimeter stainless steel case, which is water-resistant to 50 meters, unifies a classic shape with the sophistication of angled surfaces on the case lugs; a matching stainless steel bracelet with five rows of alternating brushed and polished links, compliments the case design perfectly. A diverse array of options allow considerable scope in the personalization of the Carrera Automatic Chronograph Tachymetre watch. Dials can be chosen in black, silver, blue, or brown, with the tachymeter bezel coordinated to match; for those who don’t prefer a bracelet, a strap in perforated rubber or padded calfskin makes for an exceptionally attractive and very casual alternative.
