This is another Carrera chronograph being marketed under the much more attractive name Heuer and not TAG Heuer. I invite you to discover the timepiece…
You of course all know that the today well-known brand TAG Heuer originally was founded under the name Heuer by the family Heuer. The name TAG Heuer was created when Heuer was reintroduced to the markets in the late 1980s after the quartz crises that had literally whipped out the brand Heuer.
After all the years of being marketed under the name TAG Heuer I personally very much welcome the fact that since quite a while the brand introduces more and more chronographs that “only” show the traditional Heuer-logo on its dials. Well done!
The new Heuer Carrera (39 mm) Calibre 18 – Chronographe automatique very much looks like the wonderful “Panda”-chronographs manufactured by Heuer in the 1960s. And with a diameter of 39 mm the timepiece also comes closer to the original size of 36 mm from the past.
The Heuer Carrera (39 mm) Calibre 18 – Chronographe automatique is powered by a Sellita SW300 base combined with a DD 2223-chronograph-module from Dubois Dépraz.
Don´t let yourself be fooled… This is not a black and white picture!
Since everything on the dial is grey it is hard to believe that this first computer rendered picture shows the correct colours. A later live taken picture of the chronograph will for sure show us the absolute correct colours…
I was told the Heuer Carrera (39 mm) Calibre 18 – Chronographe automatique will be delivered in June 2015 to the retailers and will be priced at around 5900 Swiss franc.
