At this year’s Baselworld show, the avant-garde Swiss watch brand presents a luxurious 18K rose gold version of its signature chronograph, the CARRERA HEUER-01, featuring the famous TAG Heuer shield on its full-grain calfskin leather strap.
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.
Having benefited from five years of continuous improvement and optimisation, the HEUER-01 calibre has attained a very high level of quality while its production costs have been carefully managed, making it the only 45-mm Chronograph produced entirely in-house with these types of materials available for under 10,000 CHF.
