TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887 Chronograph - High Performance and Elegance

Mar 26, 2010
The famous motor-racing inspired Carrera collection from the watchmaking brand TAG Heuer has been recently enriched with the new Calibre 1887 Chronograph. The timepiece has been presented at Baselworld 2010.

The impressive novelty boasts both artistic and mechanical excellence. The timeless yet modern TAG Heuer watch embodies all the elegance of a classic watch enhanced by a progressive design. It is the slender polished and satin-finished bezel, which ensures a perfect legibility of the dial.

The company’s new brainchild is constructed around a manufactory-made self-winding calibre 1887 chronograph movement, equipped with an oscillating pinion and a column wheel. This complicated mechanism serves to animate the functions of hours, minutes, small seconds, as well as those of date, and chronograph. The watch also provides the tachometer function.

The heart of the novel Carrera Calibre 1887 Chronograph is placed in a polished steel case, which measurers 41 mm in diameter. The bezel of the TAG Heuer watch features a tachometer scale.

The case is also outfitted with a polished steel crown and push-pieces. On the dial side it is protected by a curved sapphire crystal with internal and external glare-proof treatment. The manufacture’s craftsmen have equipped the chronograph watch with a scratch-resistant sapphire back. The water-resistance of the timepiece is assured down to 100 meters.

The TAG Heuer watch has been created in two dial variations: silvered or black. The time is indicated by hour and minute hands, coated with a luminous compound. The display also includes hour, minute and small seconds sub-dials, positioned at 6, 12 and 9 o’clock correspondingly. They are kept company by a date exhibition window, located at 6 o’clock.

The TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887 Chronograph watch is accompanied by a 5-row polished and satin-finished steel bracelet or a black alligator leather strap. Both straps terminate in a folding clasp fitted with a safety button.
