Carrera Heuer-01

Launched in 2015 by TAG Heuer, the Carrera Heuer-01 was a surprise for many with its new case design, modular construction and price positioning: a column-wheel chronograph with manufacture movement and openworked dial at under Swiss Francs 5,000.

Initially introduced with a 45 mm-diameter case emphasizing its sporty DNA, the Carrera Heuer-01 is now presented in a new size with a slightly reduced diameter of 43 mm and in a choice of three versions: intense black, deep navy blue and an elegant cognac brown.

The brilliance of the polished ceramic tachymeter bezel echoes the polished, satin-finished steel of the 12-part modular case which offers water resistance to 100 metres / 330 feet.

The skeleton dial and the sapphire case-back reveal the mechanisms of the 4 Hz (28,800 vph) Calibre Heuer-01 manufacture movement which offers a power reserve of 50 hours.

In particular, the chronograph operating levers and the date disc are visible on the dial side. On the case-back, the eye is attracted by the red column wheel as well as too the skeleton chronograph bridge and circular black PVD oscillating weight.

All of the movement’s Chrono functions are identified by the colour red, a colour often associated to the world of motor racing: the central seconds, the 30-minute counter, the 12-hour counter and the Start/Stop push-button.
