Now celebrating its 60th anniversary, TAG Heuer presented a new generation Carrera Chronograph Glassbox which worshiped the “racing” icon of 1963, but with notable technical improvements such as a new manufacturing caliber. To close this tribute to 60 years of life, the signing of La Chaux-de-Fonds launches a special piece made of yellow gold.
TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph 39 mm
TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph 39 mm It is a beautiful vintage golden age watch. A tribute that recalls the Carreras that Jack Heuer himself gave on the track to great drivers, such as Ronnie Peterson and Niki Lauda, who wore on their wrists the first watches that began to attract attention at the motorsport grand prix. That visionary spirit of Jack Heuer transformed the value of watches and, therefore, chronometry and the search for excellence amidst the roar of engines. A luxury totem to achieve maximum performance and break speed barriers.
