TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 36 Chronograph Flyback Racing Watch - True Racing Values

Apr 29, 2013
The iconic TAG Heuer Carrera collection welcomes a newcomer – the Carrera Calibre 36 Chronograph Flyback “Racing” watch. The novelty is characterized by supreme elegance and powerful sporty nature.

The heart of the new TAG Heuer watch is the brand’s high-rate Calibre 36 automatic chronograph movement operating at a frequency of 36,000 beats per hour. The fly-back complication, inspired by automobile racing, allows to instantly reset the chronograph to zero with a simple click.

The 43mm case is sculptured from titanium Grade 2. The alloy, appreciated for its superb lightness and corrosion-resistance, is used in the fields of aerospace, automotive and architectural design. The titanium surface of the case has been sandblasted and treated with a black titanium carbide coating to acquire extra allure.

The face of the watch is shielded by a scratch-resistant curved sapphire crystal with double anti-reflective treatment. The case-construction is 100-meter water-resistant.

The anthracite dial of the Carrera watch is embellished with the brand’s signature sunray effect. The external chronograph scale is completed with black gold polished and hand-applied Arabic numerals. The time is indicated by polished black gold hour and minute hands featuring luminescent markers. The chronograph and small second hands stand out by their red tips. The date window is found at 6 o’clock. The snailed counters for chronograph minutes and running seconds are positioned at 3 and 9 o’clock respectively.

The case-back is equipped with a smoked scratch-resistant sapphire window giving a fine opportunity to admire the inner life of the watch – the parts of the high-precision movement beating inside.

The new TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 36 Chronograph Flyback Racing watch is teamed with a black leather strap fitted with a black perforated layer and a titanium folding clasp with safety push buttons. The fresh strap design has been inspired by motor-racing leathers and steering wheel covers.
