Meet Tag Heuer Carrera Heritage Calibre 16 Automatic Chronograph and Formula 1 Lady Ceramic Chronograph Watches

Aug 25, 2011
Two special occasions - the Singapore Grand Prix, held for the fourth consecutive year, and Tag Heuer’s “Mastering Speed for 150 years” celebration - motivated the watch brand to launch two limited edition models. To be issued in September, the new Carrera Heritage Calibre 16 Automatic Chronograph and the new Formula 1 Lady Ceramic Chronograph watches will be available solely and exclusively in Singapore.

The release of the new Tag Heuer Carrera Heritage Calibre 16 Automatic Chronograph watch is restricted to 250 pieces. It is delivered in a 41m polished steel case. The fixed bezel is just as well made of steel. The case is assembled with a top curved scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, glare-proofed on both sides. The scratch-resistant sapphire glass is also used for the bottom. The case is 100-meter water-resistant.

The new Tag Heuer watch demonstrates a black dial with “flinque” effect. It is completed with protruded polished silver Arabic numerals, colored Tag Heuer logo and “Carrera automatic” lettering.

The display is controlled by the in-house calibre 16 automatic chronograph movement. It indicates central hours and minutes. The small seconds tick away in a counter at 9 o’clock.

The chronograph features are presented through a 30-minute sub-dial at 12 o’clock, a 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock as well as a central seconds hand. The date indication is arranged in an aperture inside the 12-hour sub-dial.

Fitting the model is a black alligator leather strap with green stitching. It is finalized by a solid steel folding clasp with safety push buttons.

The new Tag Heuer Formula 1 Lady Ceramic Chronograph watch is offered in a limited edition of 200 pieces.

The item is delivered in a 41mm case, crafted from polished stainless steel. It carries a fixed ceramic bezel with 60 black diamonds, totaling to 0.44 carats. At 3 o’clock, the case features a polished screw-in crown, protected by polished stainless steel bumpers. The front of the case is covered by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The model is water-resistant down to 200 meters.

Housed in the case is a black dial. It is equipped with 12 black diamond indexes, with the overall weight equal to 0.9 carats. The central hour and minute hands are fitted with luminescent markers. They are joined by a chronograph seconds hand.

The small seconds are shown in a counter at 3 o’clock, while the chronograph minutes are displayed in a counter at 9 o’clock. The date is arranged in an aperture between 4 and 5 o’clock. The watch face also features a protruded monochrome Tag Heuer logo and “Tag Heuer Formula 1” lettering.

The new Tag Heuer watch is mounted on a 5-row alternate steel and ceramic bracelet. It terminates in a solid steel “butterfly” folding clasp with safety push buttons.
