The Carrera collection has long been synonymous with TAG Heuer’s dedication to excellence since its inception in 1963. At this year’s Watches and Wonders, the brand continues to pay homage to the iconic Chronograph with several new additions to this revered collection. 

The Carrera Chronograph Panda Dial takes inspiration from the famed 7753 SN model, featuring a striking contrast between its silver sunray-brushed dial and black azuré subdials to enhance readability. Equally, modern advancements such as the Glassbox design and the integration of the Heuer 02 movement ensure that this watch stands out in form and function. 

For those seeking understated elegance, the Carrera Date 36mm series offers a symphony of luxury and refined taste. These exquisite timepieces are an exhibition of femininity and luxury, offering exquisite timepieces crafted from precious materials like 18K 5N rose gold, Mother-of-Pearl, and diamonds. Reflecting on the heritage of the Carrera collection, the 36mm editions pay tribute to the original design ethos while offering a seamless blend of masculine and feminine design cues. Powered by the Calibre 7 automatic movement and featuring a 56-hour power reserve, these timepieces combine elegance with enhanced ergonomics, making them a coveted addition to any collection.

Finally, the Carrera Skipper Chronograph makes a grand return to the world of yachting with an elegant twist. Designed for enthusiasts of sailing and fine watchmaking, this timepiece embodies TAG Heuer’s longstanding connection with maritime sports. Drawing inspiration from the historic Skipper Reference 7754 of 1968, this new iteration is crafted in 18K 5N rose gold combined with a sea-blue main dial with vividly contrasting sub-dials, ensuring optimal legibility in critical moments. With its vibrant colour scheme and luxurious construction, the Carrera Skipper Chronograph is a testament to TAG Heuer’s rich legacy in competitive sailing.

These three additions to the illustrious Hall of Carrera Chronographs will debut in June 2024.

Alongside the latest iterations of the Carrera Chronograph, TAG Heuer also unveiled the Monaco Split-Seconds Chronograph. Celebrating 55 years since its debut, the Monaco Split Seconds Chronograph is a direct descendant of the pioneering spirit that drove the brand to achieve remarkable feats in precision timekeeping. Available in dynamic red or timeless blue editions, this timepiece is crafted from a mix of sapphire and grade 5 titanium, resulting in a visually stunning and lightweight design. What truly sets the Monaco Split-Seconds Chronograph apart is its TH81-00 mechanical split-second chronograph calibre, granting it the ability to measure two time intervals simultaneously. Developed in collaboration with Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier, this latest iconic Monaco iteration will be available in June 2024, with prices ranging from $211,646 to $279,865.
