Elegant simplicity and pure femininity are the main characteristics of Tag Heuer’s Carrera range for ladies. With a new mellow, rose gold model (Ref WV1440.FC8179), these characteristics are even more stressed. This exquisite, ultra-feminine timepiece is a perfect gift for a modern woman who remains elegant even in the most casual situation.
Inspired with the motor-racing, the Carrera Collection is primarily known by high-end diving watches from the men’s range. However, glamorous women have always been a part of the racing world, as well as Tag Hauer has always known how to find the perfect balance between sport and glamour. This balance is nicely shown through the Ladies’ Formula 1 Collection and it seems that the Swiss watchmaker keeps the successful course by extending its premium range.
The new Carrera 27mm watch for ladies comes in an ultra-petit size, which demonstrates pure feminine beauty and provides a doze of every-day stylishness. A round case is crafted in 18-karat rose gold with an exquisite polish treatment that perfectly emphasizes the stunning, creamy mother-of-pearl dial. You can notice different shades subtly melting into each other, from the darkest shade of the outer rim to the white center of the dial. Between these two parts, there is a beautiful circular pattern with highly polished, applied hour indices, crafted in rose gold, just like hands and a crown. A small date aperture is located at the 3 o’clock position.
The wonderful feminine theme is completed with a sophisticated white leather strap that nicely matches the mother-of-pearl dial. The Rose Gold Carrera is also available with a contrasting black leather strap. The watch is protected with scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with double anti-reflecting treatment that significantly increases readability.
Inside the new Carrera 27mm Rose Gold timepiece, there is an ultra-accurate and reliable Swiss quartz movement. In general, this is the most promising watch in the collection. Off course, stainless steel Carrera Diamond Dial 27mm watch (Ref WV1411.BA0793) also looks stunning. Although it features thirteen top Wesselton diamonds around the dial, which makes it even more glamorous, I always prefer to see a leather strap on the lady’s wrist. For those who adore a beautifully polished stainless steel bracelet, Tag Heuer has created several variations of this diamond dial model. I like the pink mother-of-pearl dial version (Ref WV1417.BA0793) that gives a gentle feminine touch to the watch, while I am not so thrilled with a choice of a black dial.
