Hands-on Review: Carrera Heritage Series

Published by:

While the Mikrotimer Flying 1000 and Monza re-edition may have been the stars of TAG Heuer’s Baselworld releases, without a doubt the most important commercial model is the new Carrera Heritage range.

The Carrera Heritage line is a range of automatic watches and Chronographs that take the base template of the Carrera 1887 and add a “flinque” dial finish, bold coloured numerals and hands and a “heritage” font to the sub-dials and tachy bezel. In addition, TAG have designed the pushers of the Carrera Heritage to something closer to the original 1964 Carrera. read more

Hands-on Review: Carrera Mikrograph

Published by:

There aren’t many watch companies today that don’t speak of their heritage- sepia photos of the famous watches from the past, the technological achievements and of course the stars who owned them. All of this is nice, but in the end meaningless unless the company of today is building watches worthy of that legacy and not just milking an old name. read more

Hands-on Review: TAG Heuer Monaco Vintage Calibre 11

Published by:

While TAG Heuer released a re-edition of the famous 1133B Blue Monaco only five years after bringing the Monaco back, it has taken another 13 years for a re-edition of the grey 1133G Heuer Monaco to appear- the TAG Heuer Monaco Vintage Chronograph.

This new watch- Ref CAW211B (The watch shown for this review is pre-production and still has the old Reference number as shown at Basel- CAW2115)- is basically a grey version of the 40th Anniversary Monaco released last year, with two important differences. Firstly, the case of the Monaco Vintage is finished in a subtle charcoal stainless steel and secondly, the Monaco Vintage will sell for almost half the price. read more
