Baselworld 2014: The TAG Heuer novelties

TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 80 Chronograph

I will show you two watches that impressed me. It´s the new TAG Heuer Monaco V4 Tourbillon and the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 80 Chronograph

Of course the brand also launched several other new watches, but I liked these two models here most.

Let´s start with the TAG heuer Monaco V4 Tourbillon: To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the meanwhile legendary, belt-driven V4 TAG Heuer manufactured the first belt-driven Tourbillon of the industry. Four notched micro-thin (0,07 mm) transmission belts are replacing parts of the essential gear train of this movement…

Its price: 150.000 CHF including VAT

  • Isn’t the Monaco V4 a rehash? Looks awful familiar. Perhaps it is the tourbillon that makes it a novelty.

  • I like the Carrera chronographs with their nicely balanced dial and the Panda look. Eighty hour power reserve is a plus. I also like the way the calibre 80 fills the entire watch back and not sitting forlornly in the middle like some. I would wear the chronograph, although it is a bit on the expensive side. I agree with most other commentators about the V4. Don’t see the point of it!

  • The V4 is ridiculous in both looks and price. The Carreras look like they could have possible been the winning design among all those handed in during a design contest open to all third graders in Switzerland. If I were working the Basel fair for Tag, I’d do it with a paper bag over my head.

  • Who would buy a watch like this? I always liked Tag Heuer but this one must be the ugliest ever not even during Heuer’s time they came out with something like this. They want to compete with Richard Mile??
