The Carrera is praising its 55th commemoration this year. To observe, TAG Heuer isn’t looking at the past however rather stays consistent with its “avant-garde” character. They might have decided to go vintage. All things considered, they gold strong and current. After the introduction half a month prior of the new Carrera Heuer 02 Chronograph with a refreshed development , Baselworld 2018 presents to us the traveller’s rendition, the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 02 GMT Chronograph.
The current variant of the Carrera, dispatched at Baselworld 2015 , immediately turned into a hit for TAG Heuer. With its profoundly reworked plan, its strong plan, its skeletonized development and many potential variants – on account of a secluded engineering where parts can be exchanged effectively to make new models – the Carrera Heuer 01 addressed the “avant-garde” side of TAG. Half a month prior, the brand reported an advancement of this watch , which will before long fuse TAG’s new in-house development, the Caliber 02, just as a more adjusted 3-6-9 design for the chronograph counters.
For Baselworld 2018, another complication is added to this watch – effectively reported without being officially introduced. The TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 02 GMT Chronograph, as you’ve speculated with its name, presently adds an advantageous traveller’s work, because of a halfway mounted GMT hand and a 24h bezel.
For the debut version of this Carrera Heuer 02 GMT, the people at TAG have chosen to go old style, with a full tempered steel case and drags. No differentiating materials here – despite the fact that other adaptations, with dark DLC-covered parts, titanium or gold will absolutely be introduced. This new release will be accessible with a steel arm band or an elastic lash and is introduced in the biggest case, at 45mm in diameter.
The curiosities compared to the standard Carrera Heuer 02 , notwithstanding the bigger case, are noticeable on the bezel and the dial. The bezel is here made of two-tone fired, in beat up (appears to be very natural, isn’t it?) and engraved with a 24h scale. The dial additionally gets an additional GMT hand, in red. The subsequent time-region can be easily adjusted by the crown.
The chronograph development, equivalent to other Carrera Heuer 02, is as yet obvious through the open-worked dial – which has a decent design, with two sub-counters in silver and one in blue. This Heuer 02 development, created and produced in-house, is an incorporated chronograph with vertical grip, section haggle power reserve.
