TAG Heuer has just introduced the new Carrera Chronograph, in four colors.  42 millimeter chronograph, powered by the Heuer 02 movement.  

Here is my Album, with loads of photos of the new watch, and some of the vintage predecessors --

And my initial impressions of the watch, here --

Quick Summary -- should be a home run for TAG Heuer . . . incorporating the Carrera heritage into a beautiful modern watch . . . Love it!!


Thanks for sharing

While I felt some excitement about the sport series this one leaves me a bit cold. Probably a compromise between the 160th and the sport, time will tell. As a side comment I find it interesting there wasn't a single shot of the caseback in the H article, a bit weird.

This series looks good to me

Putting on my corporate hat, this is a successful release. Safe, balanced layout, good size and in house Cal 02. These are far better than the ETA 7750 Carreras and I think they’ll age even better than the Grand Carrera line.

Putting on my enthusiast hat, the two Fragment watches are still my favourite new Heuer releases in the last while.

Always liked this watch in its various forms. Tempting. [nt]

I think they did a great job on this one.

Nice but two things don't seem right

One is the running seconds display and the other is the date.  The dials should have been like these models:

These are not bad looking,....but maybe also a bit boring ??? [nt]

No message body

I was looking at the new 44 ---

these are obviously very good looking watches, this one is very clean and the 44, pretty cool...
yet they still have a certain 'wannabe' aspect about them, the 44 more so than this one...

It occurred to me today, a simple partial solution:

Just lose TAG, forever.

It has little to no meaning (for almost everyone) and is always a subtraction from the HOLY NAME HEUER.


This alone would elevate ALL TH watches. Or, er, um... H watches.

Not only is the name TAG meaningless (mostly, in terms or relevance historically) but it also is associated with the emblem/logo that I dislike a lot, the Tag Heuer "mailbox' logo...
Which can be seen on most bracelet clasps...

Lose that.

I believe, and I mean this in dead serious earnestness... losing TAG and the 'mailbox' will enrich the brand exponentially...

Imagine every TH watch being called HEUER.

Man, it would mean a lot and change a lot of minds...

Only Heuer and everything associated with Heuer matters...
Tag is the 2nd wife.... not the mother.

if you will...

My 2c.
