Carrera Calibre 1887 is rising above whims of fashion trends
Mar '10
Long the standard bearer for chronographs in the luxury watch industry, TAG Heuer underscored its pre-eminence with the introduction of the Carrera Calibre 1887 Chronograph. A premium timepiece that is a true collaboration of timeless elegance and technical innovation, the Carrera is the first TAG Heuer watch to be powered by the brand's new Calibre 1887 chronograph movement.

The mechanism comprises 320 components, including the ground-breaking TAG Heuer oscillating pinion, patented in 1887. The hallmark of this integrated, column wheel chronograph is its capacity to store energy as needed. Unlike traditional movements, which continuously amass energy, the Calibre 1887 only stores as much power as needed. This ensures that there is less stress on the movement, thereby ensuring its longevity.

Boasting contemporary style and cutting-edge mechanics, the Carrera Calibre 1887 Chronograph evokes TAG Heuer's grand watchmaking tradition. The robust engine is viewable through the Carrera's scratch-resistant sapphire caseback, allowing wearers to appreciate the exceptional intricacies of this movement. Available in either black or silver, the Carrera's dial hosts three counters: a chronograph hour at 6 o'clock, a permanent running second at 9 o'clock and a chronograph minute at 12 o'clock, each of which offers at-a-glance access to precision timing. Additionally, the 41 mm model's domed sapphire crystal with double-sided antireflective treatment and luminescent hour and minute hands provides optimum readability.

With its clean, fluid lines – complemented by either a stainless steel bracelet or black alligator strap – the Carrera 1887 Chronograph is an instant classic, rising above the whims of fashion trends. Made of 316L surgical-grade steel, the hardest, most scratch-resistant metal, the Carrera's case can withstand the rigors of daily wear, making this a versatile timepiece you'll never want to take off.

The Carrera 1887 Chronograph will retail for approximately $3900 in the U.S. and Canada.
