Synonymous with two uniquely exciting worlds: horology and motorsport, TAG Heuer first infused the two with the brand’s coveted Carrera Series. With a title derived from the Spanish word for “race” (or “career”), the signature watch launched itself from the mind of Jack Heuer in 1963.

Paying tribute to one of the world’s most dangerous races, Carrera Panamericana, which ran from 1950 to 1954, TAG Heuer returns once more to the professional thrill these drivers experienced.

Honouring Jack’s symbolic birthday, the sleek design of the limited edition vintage Heuer Carrera uses Jack’s favourite material – 18K Rose Gold. Specially chosen to be presented to racing drivers.

Each of the 188-limited-edition Carrera features Jack’s motto “Time never stops, why should we?” on the oscillating mass of its in-house manufacture Heuer 02 movement.

Upon hearing about the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Jack Heuer 88th Birthday Gold Limited Edition, Jack was immediately touched by this reimagining of his favourite watch. Reminding him “of many dear friends and thrilling years on the race track,” Jack is looking “forward to seeing it on the wrist of new generations of daring characters.”

Equipped with the 168 component Calibre Heuer 02 manufacture movement, the limited-edition Carrera boasts an impressive power reserve of 80 hours. Open for pre-orders from 19 November 2020; this exclusive tribute timepiece will be available in TAG Heuer boutiques and online in March 2021.
