Being a significant part of Formula One’s evolution, the luxury timepiece professionals at TAG Heuer pride themselves on playing a role in competitive racing since the start. Operating as a true tool watch for racing drivers to time laps, the Carrera Chronograph pioneers itself as one of the earliest automotive-inspired timepieces. TAG Heuer is proud to continue that legacy with a new limited-edition gold model that derives inspiration from one of F1’s most influential race cars.
The new TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph features a black and gold colorway, mimicking the iconic Lotus racing livery of the John Player Specials race car. In a stunning 18K 3N yellow gold execution, it’s 42mm case design contrasts beautifully against a black sunray brushed dial with matching gold chronograph counters.
While the vintage Lotus F1 car is powered by a high-horsepower race engine, the Carrera Chronograph is driven by TAG Heuer’s in-house 02 Automatic movement. The caliber is visible through a sapphire backcase, also showcasing engravings that signify the special edition release from TAG Heuer.
Adding a classic touch to the motorsport watch, TAG Heuer fits the Carrera Chronograph with a black alligator leather strap and pin buckle. The all-new 18K yellow gold TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph is currently available through an authorized dealer for $21,500.
