Named after the iconic 1950’s race across Mexico, the Carrera is renowned worldwide as one of the leading Tag Heuer’s sport watch collections. Ever since Jack Heuer created the first Carrera timepiece, back in 1964, the collection has been expended in the authentic motor-racing spirit, incorporating some of the most advanced technologies.
Eleven years after its withdrawn off the market, in 1985, the Carrera Collection was back to become an important part of Tag Heuer’s range. Today, it includes more than 40 models, with various automatic calibers and quartz movements.
Along with the latest reinterpretation of the iconic Carrera from 1964 (automatic and chronograph heritage edition with Calibre 6 and Calibre 16 movements), Tag Heuer is especially proud of Carrera 1887 Chronograph. This masterpiece with an in-house Carrera 1887 automatic mechanism won the most prestigious award of the Swiss watchmaking industry (Watch of the Year), at 2010 Grand Prix de l’Horlogerie de Genève.
However, the Swiss watchmaker did not stop here. Just one year later, celebrating its 150th anniversary, Tag Heuer launched Carrera Mikrograph 1/100th of a Second Chronograph. This technological breakthrough immediately amazed the world with the stunning mechanism that features the first ever column wheel integrated mechanical chronograph that shows the 1/100th of a second.
