The Carrera Chronograph “Blue Dreamer” comes via a partnership between TAG Heuer, The Rake and The Revolution. As the voice for classic elegance and discreet luxury, The Rake guides men through the world of style and lifestyle. The Revolution is a sister magazine that reports on luxury mechanical watches on a quarterly basis. TAG Heuer needs no introduction. Bringing these three together ensures that the watch you get will be stylish and luxurious. Such is the case with the Blue Dreamer.
The Blue Dreamer takes its inspiration from the French Riviera, with its blue waters, extravagant lifestyles, and nautical culture. The watch was created with notorious playboys, adventures, aristocrats, and scoundrels in mind, including Ian Fleming’s James Bond and Cary Grant’s John Robie.
The basis of the watch is TAG Heuer’s automatic Calibre 18—a 39mm steel cased watch with a boxed sapphire crystal. The rich blue face brings to mind the Riviera, whether you’re wearing the elegant black leather, the more relaxed and original blue calfskin, or the onboard blue and white striped textile strap. This particular Calibre 18 comes specially modified and date-less, making it unique to this offering.
Three powerhouses of the mechanical watch industry came together to produce the Blue Dreamer, and it’s evident in what was produced—a fine, high-caliber watch that fits in wherever you go.
