Since Eduard Heuer opened his first workshop in Saint-Imier, Switzerland in 1860, many collections have been designed and added to an impressive list of Swiss artistry. The Carrera family, named after the great Pan Americana race was released to the world in 1963 and since then, it has broken boundaries of the watch making world and this year is no exception.
The Tag Heuer Carrera Heuer 01 is crafted from a 43mm black ceramic and stainless-steel case with an array of impressive finishing’s including, polished stainless-steel lugs with a fine brushed ceramic bezel and a brushed stainless steel case. Ceramic is an incredible material as its very light, highly scratch resistant, hypoallergenic and warms to the wearers wrist making the watch feel at one with the wearer and perfect for all occasions. All finished off perfectly with a sapphire crystal glass, helping your Tag Heuer to stay pristine.
The beautiful dial shows off the attention to detail that Tag Heuer give to every timepiece, with hand polished and applied indeces and markers all set with superluminova offering maximum readability. Two buttons either side of the crown control the chronograph sub dials and central hand measuring, seconds, 1/10th of a second and minutes.
Equipped with a skeleton dial, offering maximum visibility of the ingenious Tag Heuer 01 in house, fully Swiss movement, boasting an impressive 50-hour power reserve, 40 hours with the chronograph in motion. Set with 39 rubies to reduce friction and to aid in the flow of the watches movement, this Tag Heuer contains one of the most precise and reliable automatic movements, ever made.
We think that this watch is something of true magnificence and for that reason is on the list of our favourite timepieces.
