Whether you are a seasoned professional driver or an enthusiast, TAG Heuer has created a series of sports watches for you. TAG Heuer Carrera is designed to offer unmatched comfort, luxury and legibility at top speeds. The sports-inspired design is also complemented by a unique rotating disc system that makes the watch look modern and futuristic.
The TAG Heuer watch case back is solid and made from stainless steel. The case is scratch-resistant. The remaining steel on the caseback is marked with a unique serial number and the TAG Heuer name. The caseback is secured by a folding buckle strap that can be angled multiple ways. This gives a satisfying click when the clasp is released.
The TAG Heuer Grand Carrera is the black sheep of the Carrera family. It is the only watch in the collection to feature the brand’s famous rotating discs instead of subdials. The small rotating discs give the watch a modern and futuristic look. They also allow the watch to measure times to within a tenth of a second.
The watch is large and heavy. It measures 43 millimeters in diameter. The lugs are elongated and parallel, which contribute to the watch’s sleek design. The bezel is black with a tachymetre marking and the crown is stamped with the TAG Heuer shield armor logo.
The TAG Heuer watch is water resistant to 99 feet, and has a screw-down case back. The dial is black with a recessed design that indicates time. It has visible hour markers and small markers for the 1/5th second. The seconds hand is polished steel. The dial is protected by Sapphire glass with an anti-reflective coating.
The Grand Carrera is available in 40, 42, and 43 mm diameters. The 40 mm version is available in dark brown or white. The 42 mm and 43 mm models are available in black or white.
The Grand Carrera Calibre 17 RS is the second chronograph in the series. It has a 43 mm case and a bicompax layout. The main difference between the two is that the Calibre 17 has a date display at 6 o’clock. It is powered by the Calibre 17 based on the ETA 2894-2 movement. The watch is available in a variety of metals and colors, including 18-karat rose gold with a dark brown dial. It is also available in matte black and white.
The Grand Carrera Calibre 8 RS is an attractive option for travelers between time zones. It is a chronograph, but it is a bit more affordable than the others in the series. It is also COSC certified, meaning it can measure time to an accuracy of 1/10 of a second. The window on the dial stretches from 5 to 7 o’clock, and the window has a large date display.
The Grand Carrera is offered in a variety of materials, including titanium, two-tone stainless steel, and gold. In addition to the standard configuration, which is daily waterproof, the watch is also available with a TT651 GMT module. In addition to displaying time, the watch is equipped with a rotating 24-hour disc that is displayed in the window.
LVMH, the owner of brands like Louis Vuitton and Chanel, bought TAG Heuer in 1999, pumping in a lot of capital. This allowed the Swiss watchmaker to re-imagine its collection with connected watches. The result was the CALIBRE 360 CONCEPT CHRONOGRAPH, a timepiece that measures 1/100th of a second. The company is also associated with motor racing and tennis. These associations help TAG Heuer to be an integral part of many important events.
TAG Heuer’s line of watches features sporty designs and bold symbols. Formula 1 watches are instantly recognizable because of the bold numerals and angular dial elements. Despite its association with sports, TAG Heuer also produces luxury and modern timepieces. These watches are designed with precision and robustness in mind. In addition, TAG Heuer invests in responsible sourcing and sustainable practices. The company is a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council.
TAG Heuer’s Grand Carrera is the sportiest series in the brand’s entire collection. This large and sturdy watch is available in stainless steel, titanium, and two-tone stainless steel. It can be worn on a variety of straps including an interchangeable rubber bracelet. The case back is made from 316L, a very strong and corrosion-resistant metal. The case back is also scratch-resistant.
The design of the Grand Carrera includes the Rotating Disc System (RS). Instead of subdials, the watch has small, rotating discs that can display the small seconds, date, and second time zone. This feature adds to the watch’s futuristic appearance. This technology also allows the watch to measure times to within a tenth of a second.
The Grand Carrera’s elongated lugs, refined hands, and uncluttered design make it an attractive choice for men. The watch’s crown is made from metal and features luminescent hands. The stainless steel case is scratch-resistant, and the sapphire glass with anti-reflective coating helps protect the dial. The crown is also adjustable, and the watch is able to be folded to provide different angles.
TAG Heuer is known for its chronographs, and these are used in many of the brand’s watches. Unlike other chronographs, the Carrera uses the brand’s in-house Heuer 02 movement. The movement features a semi-skeletonized look that was inspired by the former CEO of Hublot. This was done to revive the brand and give it a more “stylish” feel.
The company’s Aquaracer watches are water-resistant to 300 meters. This level of waterproofness requires additional waterproof services. The company also sponsors sailing, golf, and auto racing, and is an official timekeeper for the Manchester United football team.
TAG Heuer is a Swiss company founded by Edouard Heuer in 1860. He originally made dashboard clocks and began to manufacture mechanical wristwatches in 1914. Heuer’s early triumphs included the world’s first wrist-worn chronograph, as well as dashboard chronographs for aircraft. Heuer’s mechanisms are still used in modern mechanical wristwatches.
TAG Heuer’s timepieces are made for active lifestyles and measure seconds with incredible precision. These watches are made from durable materials, and are tested before leaving the factory. In addition to sports-related themes, the brand also has a collection of vintage-inspired timepieces.
