5 min

A round-up of every TAG Heuer Carrera released in honor of the collection’s 60th anniversary.

1 collection. 6 decades. 12 glorious watch releases. This year we’ve celebrated the 60th anniversary of the TAG Heuer Carrera in grand style. You’ve seen the film, you’ve read about its roots, you’ve heard all about its history. But can you remember every single Carrera watch released in 2023? Well, let’s refresh your memory with a quick round-up.

  • TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph, reference CBS2212.FC6535

Enter the glassbox

The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph is a landmark timepiece. Its revolutionary glass box case reframes the Carrera story, giving you a glimpse of the collection’s past while breaking through to the future. The watch comes in two styles. The first one features the signature blue dial. The other is graced with a black and silver ‘reverse panda’ dial, an ode to the Heuer Carrera 2447 NS, probably the rarest Carrera of them all.

  • TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Skipper, reference CBS2213.FN6002

Comeback king

The Skipper is back, and how. Few watches have captured the imagination of collectors and enthusiasts like the Heuer Skipper, first released in 1968 to commemorate the Intrepid’s victory at the America’s Cup in 1967. The TAG Heuer Carrera Skipper revisits all of the details that made the original so unique. The iconic color palette, its legacy, and most importantly, TAG Heuer’s relationship with sailing. Welcome back to the high seas, Skipper.

The gold standard

When you think of gold Carrera watches, your mind drifts back to memories of ‘70s racing drivers holding their trophies aloft. Ever since Jack Heuer gifted gold Heuer Carreras to Formula 1 drivers, these timepieces have become synonymous with success. That’s why the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Gold is the perfect finish for the Carrera’s 60th anniversary. This piece is the very definition of the idea that, when it comes to the Carrera, the race never stops.

Colors of Carrera

Pink was the color of the summer. And it’s no surprise that the TAG Heuer Carrera Date made its way to the top of the fashion charts. The 36mm timepiece was seen on the wrists of Alexandra Daddario and Ryan Gosling (who starred in the summer blockbuster Barbie). Of course pink wasn’t the only show in town. The timepiece comes in four shades. What’s your favorite hue?

  • TAG Heuer Carrera Chronosprint x Porsche, reference CBS2011.FC6529

Time, accelerated

The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronosprint x Porsche captures the enduring legacies of both the TAG Heuer Carrera and the Porsche 911. Both of these icons were born in 1963. To draw a parallel between the two, we’ve created a one-of-a-kind movement that’s inspired by the acceleration time of the iconic sports car. The very first Porsche 911 took 9.1 seconds to go from 0 to 100km/h. A thrilling experience. And this piece, with the red hot section on the dial, recreates that same exhilarating feeling.

Racing into the future

A highly legible 3-6-9 subdial layout, searing splashes of color, the gradient orange ring around the dial, the retro dashboard-inspired subdial hands — all of these elements come together to create the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph. Its cutting-edge aesthetics take all of the things we love about the Carrera, and races the collection into the future.

  • TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Tourbillon, reference CBS5010.FC6543

TAG Heuer Carrera, uncaged

A TAG Heuer Carrera with a tourbillon? Yes, of course you can have one. In fact you’ll want to show off the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Tourbillon everywhere you go. The tourbillon cage, clearly visible at 6 o’clock, is a thing of beauty, and watchmaking mastery. Powered by our in-house tourbillon movement, TH20-09, the chronometer-certified automatic also has a chronograph function and is backed by a 65-hour power reserve.

  • TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche, reference CBN2A1M.FC6526

A flash of orange

Inspired by the color of the sparks made by racing cars screaming over asphalt, the TAG Heuer Porsche Orange Racing lights up your passion for motorsport. A nod to fire and heat, this eye-catching timepiece makes heads turn. It’s yet another symbol of TAG Heuer and Porsche’s inextricable links with racing. Fancy taking it out for a spin?

  • TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Team Ikuzawa by Bamford, reference CBN201F.EB0356

A spot of red

This timepiece brings together a dream team: Team Ikuzawa, Bamford Watch Department, and TAG Heuer. The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Team Ikuzawa by Bamford is designed at the intersection of legacy and precision. Its minimalist lines are inspired by Japanese design. The white color palette adds a sense of timelessness. The red dot on the dial infuses playfulness, something that Mai Ikuzawa’s designs are known for.

  • TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph, reference CBK221H.FC8317

The return of the panda

We started 2023 with a bang, reinterpreting one of the most sought-after Carreras: the Heuer Carrera reference 2447 SN. The TAG Heuer Carrera 60th Anniversary isn’t just an homage; it’s a modern take on a timepiece that perfectly captures the essence of the collection. Lovingly known as ‘the panda’ by collectors, this piece was the ideal catalyst to a year packed with surprises.
