Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887 Chronograph
Introduced during this years’ BASELWORLD tradeshow, and in celebration of Tag Heuer’s 150th year anniversary, the new Carrera Calibre 1887 Chronograph timepiece is a brilliant example of why the Swiss brand is among the premier luxury watchmakers in the world. The watch features a historic technological revolution, the oscillating pinion mechanism first developed and patented by Edouard Heuer in 1887, which remains a key component in high-end Swiss watches today.
Technological innovations aside (and there are many), the main attraction of the Carrera Calibre 1887 is its timeless, yet stunning elegance. With clean, fluid lines and a stainless bracelet or alligator strap, the dial features a robust array of counters encased in a surgical-grade steel body. Flip it over and you’ll gasp over the exceptional intricacies of the movement viewable through the scratch-resistant caseback. Perhaps without the stigma attached to a Rolex, or the rugged utilitarian functionality of an Omega Seamaster, its uncompromising beauty sets it apart from all the rest.
Available soon in Canada & the U.S. for $3900.
