TAG Heuer’s Carrera Tachymeter Racing

Tag Heuer Carrera

Since its creation by Jack Heuer in 1964, the Carrera chronograph has been one of TAG Heuer’s most iconic models, celebrated as much for its design as for its technological prowess. It derives its name from the Carrera Panamericana Mexico, a famously difficult car race of the 1950s.

TAG Heuer has recently released several new models of this emblematic timepiece, all in keeping with the elegant, sporty and authentic character of the original. Two new Carrera tachymeters were launched at the end of 2005: a model with chocolate-brown dial, tachymeter and bracelet; and a model with blue dial and tachymeter and steel bracelet.

This new sporty chronograph is available from April 2006.

"The brand-new Carrera Tachymeter Racing is targeted at fans of strong sensations. Furnished with a tachymeter on its fixed bezel for calculating speed, it pays homage to the great motor racing legends and “gentleman drivers.” Its rubber bracelet, partially perforated, is inspired by the mythic universe of racecar driving in the 1950s, and the red needles and massive beveled indexes on the black dial call to mind the speed counters on classic racecar dashboards."


"More than a new version of a model that already enjoys cult status, this new addition to the distinguished line perpetuates its historic heritage and the passion that fuels it. More sporty than ever, the Carrera Tachymeter Racing is, like all Carrera chronographs, an object of desire and audacity, timeless and indispensable."
