TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 5 Mens Watch – WAR215B.BD0783

£3,250.00 £2,600.00

Jack Heuer designed the Carrera in 1964 as a tribute to the gruelling Carrera Panamericana Mexico road race. He said he wanted to encapsulate the bold spirit of the race’s gentlemen drivers. The Carrera Calibre 5 Automatic is directly inspired by this original design, with the retro case shape and uncluttered dial being reminiscent of 1960s understatement. Fastened with a fine-brushed 18 carat gold and steel strap, the solid polished steel case is topped with a magnificent solid gold bezel. Housed beneath a scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass coated on each side with an anti-reflective treatment, the sunray effect opalin silver dial features gold plated baton shaped hour and minute hands, along with gold plated indexes and a date marker positioned at three o’clock. A high quality Calibre 5 movement provides all the power, while rigorous manufacturing standards ensure that this piece is water resistant up to 100m. Harkening back to the golden days of watch manufacturing, this beautiful timepiece is the perfect embodiment of the Carrera model’s 50 year history.
