TAG Heuer Unleashes New Line of Carrera Sport Chronographs

The TAG Heuer Carrera was born on the race track in 1963 and has been synonymous with top-shelf performance ever since. Streamlined by design, the automatic chronograph never fails to strike a perfect balance between sportiness and sophistication. That theme continues with the brand’s latest collection, better known as Carrera Sport. It’s arriving just in time for Australia’s Father’s Day and we can’t think of a better gift, especially if Dad has a taste for iconic watches. Heck, even if he’s not a watch freak, this timepiece will turn him into one. That’s the power of Carrera.

TAG Heuer’s latest collection consists of four new models, each of which combines in-house mechanics with timeless design elements. In the Carrera tradition, they draw upon the essence of professional sport without relying on gimmicky gestures. That might be why they’re worn by actual race car drivers, who value quality and subtlety over dashboard-themed dial faces and other kitschy fares. Bold and assertive, these watches reap strength out of maximum performance and luxurious iconography, using prime materials and choice details to render massive impressions.

It goes without saying that each Carrera Sport makes for an instant triumph, but that doesn’t mean you won’t relish one over the others. Below are the four models making up the new collection:

TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 02 with Black Dial and Bezel on a Steel Bracelet

With its black dial, black counters, and ceramic black tachymeter fixed bezel, this Carrera Sport model delivers a uniform vibe and a dauntless one at that. The watch’s steel bracelet, fine-brushed 44mm case, and silver accents serve up just the right amount of contrast without compromising the piece’s bold aesthetic. A lume of vibrant green brings the indices to life under dark conditions. Under the skin is the brand’s own Heuer 02 automatic movement with an 80-hour power reserve. No one argues with black and we’re not about to start.
