This latest Carrera timepiece will take your breath away

Our 60th anniversary celebrations for the TAG Heuer Carrera are about to go up a notch. You have probably seen, or have been looking forward to seeing, our glorious parade of Carrera releases. But just when you thought you’ve got a second to breathe, the new TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Tourbillon is here to take your breath away. Here are 3 reasons why you should consider spoiling yourself with this timepiece.

1. It’s a TAG Heuer Carrera tourbillon

Yes, this timepiece is another finely crafted marvel. Yes, it’s another ode to the design principles of the TAG Heuer Carrera. But the thing that elevates this watch is the tourbillon cage. Delightfully visible on the dial at 6 o’clock, you’ll want to show it off at every opportunity. Our elite watchmakers have mastered the tourbillon’s complex form. The proof, and the power, of their know-how lies in the in-house tourbillon movement, TH20-09. The chronometer-certified automatic also has a chronograph function and is backed by a 65-hour power reserve.

2. Beauty from every angle

Thanks to the design of the timepiece’s curved sapphire crystal, you can soak in the beauty of the tourbillon from a wider range of angles. Even the flange and indexes on the dial have been subtly curved to mirror and complement the crystal’s edge. In short, every element in this timepiece has been refined to reflect the mechanical beauty of the tourbillon.

3. Delicious details

Another reason to fall in love with this watch is its overall look and readability. The deep ‘azuré’ subdials are surrounded by high-contrast silver rings. This makes the chronograph’s read-outs clear and legible. The minutes scale running across the outer edge of the dial is punched up by fiery orange highlights over each hour marker. One particularly nostalgic touch is the watch’s seconds hand. Its triangular shape is inspired by the needles on ‘60s race car dashboards. 

The watch allows for bi-directional winding with increased efficiency and accuracy. You’ve also got the sapphire case back through which you can admire the TH20-09 movement. The signature Carrera blue dial is stylish and timeless. It comes with a circular brushed finish and a blue calfskin leather strap. 

Gorgeous, isn’t it? Go forth, spoil yourself with the new TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Tourbillon. The timepiece will be sold in TAG Heuer boutiques, and on the brand’s e-commerce website.
