It is known to all of us that there are many reasons why Switzerland became so famous for the creation of accurate and desirable timepieces. The main reason why so many Swiss craftsmen became watchmakers is because the wearing of jewellery was banned in the country in the mid 1500s by Jean Calvin. This left jewelers with a choice of either shutting up shop or turning their hands to the new craft of watchmaking instead , it required the same attention to detail and working with precision so many craftsmen chose this new path instead.
One of the many companies to appear as a result of this ban on the wearing of jewels was when Edouard Heuer opened his first workshop in St. Imier in 1860 and Uhrenmanufaktur Heuer AG continued their fine family traditional of making exceptional timepieces until 1985 when the company joined forced with the TAG Group and the TAG Heuer brand name was born as a result. Heuer Watchmaking already enjoyed an enviable reputation as a Swiss watch manufacturer of note but the amalgamation with the TAG group took the company to a whole new level.
So stick with us while we proceed with our review of the TAG Heuer Carrera Automatic Chronograph Watch CV2A10.BA0796, a pinnacle of TAG Heuer design skills
Swiss Chronograph. TAG Heuer have long been the darlings of the motor sports and racing industry as a whole and this affiliation dates back to around 1910 when Heuer Watchmaking Inc. created and released the first dashboard stopwatch for racing drivers. Since then TAG Heuer timepieces have become the firm favorite timekeeper for multiple high-speed sports from skiing to high octane sports such as track racing and a lot of this is due to the earliest achievements of this company, such as creating the first stopwatch which was accurate to 1/100th of a second. The TAG Heuer Carrera Automatic Chronograph Watch CV2A10.BA0796 has 3 sub dials which have a 12-hour, 30-minute and 60-second function and you can see from the very first moment you hold this watch that it’s styled for the sports and racing market where split-second timing is the difference between utter defeat and absolute victory.
Automatic Movement. You’ll never need to worry about winding this TAG Heuer men’s watch as it features an automatic, self-winding movement. So instead of having to remind yourself to wind your watch instead you can simply put it on your wrist and allow the motion of your body to “charge” your watch for you. One thing to bear in mind is that if you’re not going to wear this watch on a daily basis you should leave it in a winder to stop it from causing you any problems. Even if you do wear your Tag Heuer Carrera watch on a daily basis it’s important to understand that how you place your watch when it’s not being worn can and will affect whether or not it gains or loses time each day. Finding out which resting position works best for your watch is a matter of trial and error however. Please also note that although this TAG Heuer Chronograph watch is automatic and self-winding it will still require a full service at least every 5-years or so.
Stunning Looks. Even by TAG Heuer stands this TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph is a beautiful looking watch and it will immediately catch your eye, even from a distance and it will no doubt have the same effect on your friends and colleagues. The black dial and bezel provide a perfect, and very stylish, contrast to the brushed and polished stainless steel case. The watch dial itself features large silver-toned Arabic numerals and several red accents on key features of this watch create a very visually appealing appearance.On top of the various sub-dials the main watch dial also has a calendar function in the usual 3 o’clock position and each of the silver-toned hands on this watch are also luminous in nature so you shouldn’t have any problems using this watch in the dark or dusk for example. The dial window is made from the ever-reliable, durable and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal but if you turn this watch around you’re in for yet another visual treat because of the “Exhibition Back”; which is another layer of sapphire crystal in place of the case back. Although this is a novelty to some it never ceases to charm us when we see the inner workings of such a fine timepiece as the TAG Heuer Carrera range.
Color Choices. The TAG Heuer Carrera Day Date Men’s watch CV2A10.BA0796 comes in a stainless steel finish on the watch case and bracelet band but the bezel and watch dial are manufactured from black aluminum instead.
Dimensions. You’ll find that most gent’s luxury watches tend to share the same basic measurements and the TAG Heuer CV2A10.BA0796 is no different in that regard, although the case thickness is about 1.5mm more than you’d find on other watches of this type:
In Conclusion, this TAG Heuer Chronograph watch is also water-resistant to 330-feet (100 meters) so ideally you should never expose it to water for prolonged periods of time or at all if you can help it.This is a watch with truly stunning looks, the jet black dial and bezel with red accents being the perfect contrast to the stainless steel case.If you need absolute timing accuracy then a TAG Heuer Carrera Men’s watch CV2A10.BA0796 is a great investment to make for yourself.The “Exhibition Back” is always a wonderful inclusion on a watch such as this. An automatic movement means hassle-free enjoyment of this Swiss work of chorological art. Although the TAG Heuer Carrera Automatic Chronograph Watch CV2A10.BA0796 is styled and designed for sports use it also makes a perfectly acceptable and functional day-to-day watch. Although it may seem too “sporty” to wear as a dress watch you won’t fail to get admiring glances from anyone who does notice you wearing it.
