Totally black and totally matt, TAG Heuer is unveiling its very first proprietary men's chronograph made entirely from ceramic, including the bracelet.
Presented for the first time two years ago at Baselworld, the Carrera HEUER-01 is the signature Chrono model from the TAG Heuer manufacture. In 2015, the watch formed the cornerstone of a burgeoning new collection, with a new design, a new HEUER-01 in-house calibre, and a new modular case design with 12 different elements enabling multiple combinations of materials and colours.
