Tag Heuer brings out a brand-new edition of their heritage inspired line of elegant chronograph- Tag Heuer Carrera. This latest edition comes in an unexpected but extremely attractive looking colour, deep red. Red has always been the brand’s signature colour, usually in small spots, but this time the redness has flooded the entire 39mm sized dial.
What makes it even more tempting to own is the fact that it is a limited edition watch with only 600 pieces for sale. It still draws from the same aesthetics that made it such a hit amongst racing pilots and it still retains the silhouette of the original Heuer Carrera reference 2447. The indexes and the hands are rhodium plated with Super-LumiNova® coating for maximum readability. That means you can read the time easily on this timepiece in darkness as well.
With its tri-compax layout, the dial is easily recognizable, especially to the eye of a watch enthusiast. The crimson, almost fiery looking dial creates a beautiful background for the three sunray chronograph counters. This creates a mesmerizing play of lights that would make it hard for anyone to take their eyes off it.
The watch also comes with an impressive power reserve of up to 80 hours, which is over three days. A good amount of time, considering the wearer doesn’t wear her watch all the time. There’s no question of doubt when it comes to precision, Tag Heuer has its own in-house high precision chronograph.
The black alligator strap does a good job of complimenting the steel-colored dial. The fiery red dial is what makes this watch truly unique in my opinion. Perfectly aimed to be a collectors watch; it is certain any watch enthusiast would be eager to own this elegant piece of art.
The watch can be purchased at the TAG Heuer boutiques or through the brand’s e-commerce website for INR 5,61,000 + taxes. If this hits your vibe, make sure you do get your hands on it.
