The Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph Returns
And this watch is now more elegant than ever
The Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph has cemented its place in history by being the first choice of some of the best teams and drivers in Formula 1 and now, this timeless design from 1963 is going golden with the all new 2022 gold edition of the watch. Let’s see why this is the definitive diver’s watch.
The all new 2022 gold edition Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph takes inspiration from iconic racing livery and reinforces its connection to motorsports with its stunning new black and yellow gold look. Featuring a black dial and a yellow gold watch case, this watch pays homage to its rich racing lineage and racing timepieces.
Moreover, the Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph was designed to be perfect for racing, which is why it is so popular among drivers. This is because the watch features a highly legible and uncluttered dial as well as sleek lines and high performance movements and this new iteration builds on that perfectly.
Additionally, this is not the first time the Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph employed a golden tinge to the watch as in 1970, the first yellow gold automatic models were brought. This was when the timepiece became a must have on the racetrack and also became synonymous with success.
On top of that, the current 2022 gold edition builds on the unique legacy of the Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph by introducing an all new dial design which is black with golden gilded subdials, this is an inverted version of the original 1970 version, the 1158 CHN. This was also then CEO, Jack Heuer’s favourite.
Furthermore, the classic 42mm watch case on the Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph 2022 god edition is made from solid 18K 3N yellow gold and the pushers and crowns are also gold while the rich black sunray brushed dial, adds a touch of class to the watch which allows for the watch to subtly play with light.
The black dial also sees two contrasting azure and gilded gold subdials which are at the 3 o’ clock and 9 o’ clock positions while at the 6 o’ clock position we see a discreet permanent second indicator and date window. The indexes and watch hands are also plated in the same gold as the watch case itself.
