TAG Heuer unveil Carrera 160th Years Silver Limited Edition
TAG Heuer was strangely absent from last-week’s LVMH Watch Week, and now we know why.
The brand gave select journalists and creators a sneak peek at a very special watch, before properly launching it a few days after.
The new TAG has been created to honour both the first Heuer Carrera chronograph, as well as the company’s 160th anniversary. The brand has largely stayed true to its original aesthetic, including the monochromatic silver dial with sunburst pattern, and three chronograph counters.
Its size has been upgraded – from 36mm to 39mm – and the shape of the hands are bulkier to allow for SuperLuminova coating. It is now powered by TAG’s Calibre Heuer 02 movement, with a power reserve of 80-hours. It has been limited to just 1,860 pieces.
