TAG Heuer revisit a brand classic to celebrate the Chronograph Carrera Calibre 16’s 10th birthday. The iconic watch has undergone a transformation to mark the decade introducing the design to a modern market. The TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 Day-Date Chronograph Black Titanium brings a contemporary, elegant aesthetic to the timepiece attracting the attention of loyal TAG followers and the style conscious gent.
The instrument balances a sporting edge with a sophisticated, vintage charm due to the black dial with desert beige detailing; a beautiful design in its 43 mm. A distressed brown leather strap effortlessly fits to the wrist bringing comfort and elegance to the forefront. To bring the timepiece into a contemporary setting the titanium case is robust and light for a modern audience. The black Grade 2 micro-blasted black PVD titanium case adds a distinctive, masculine look to the device.
The Carrera was originally realised in the 1960s becoming a design easily identified as a TAG Heuer model. The initial aim was to bring a clear, clean dial to the wrist, which continues to be at the forefront of the latest design released this year. The Swiss watch brand appreciates both classic tradition and contemporary innovation, which is very evident with the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 Day-Date Chronograph Black Titanium; a celebratory piece that values the brands heritage and future.
