Among the many TAG Heuer models, the Carrera series is undoubtedly the oldest and most classic series. Calera stands for passion, adventure and heroism in Spanish. This series is a tribute to the legendary ‘Carrera Pan Americana Mexico Race’, a tribute to true brave and highly skilled riders-a race that lasts 5 days and travels 3300 kilometers (2100 miles) ) Carrera Pan American Highway crossing Mexico. It was the most prestigious, the most rigorous, and the most dangerous endurance race of the time. This time I will introduce a flyback chronograph from this legendary series. The advent of this stunning chronograph will undoubtedly make the Carrera series more outstanding. The legendary Calibre 36 movement debuted in the Carrera case. The flyback function enables the chronograph to be started, stopped, and reset by touching the flyback button, even the child can operate it. Official model: CAR2B10.BA0799
The specific and avant-garde shape of the Tag Heuer Carrera series flyback chronograph is inspired by the design of racing cars, making the watch quite dynamic and attractive. The watch is equipped with a brand-made chronograph movement inside. The flyback function makes the chronograph more convenient. It is the representative of the fashion pioneer.
The unique dual dial design is inspired by the original TAG Heuer chronograph stopwatch. The wide dial provides clear field of view and can be seen at a glance every minute. The small second hand is displayed at 9 o’clock, the chronograph minute hand is displayed at 3 o’clock, and the date is at 6 o’clock. In contrast, the hour and minute hands are more prominent on the bright smoke-gray dial.
The dial is smoky gray with black, calm and dynamic, showing masculinity. The small red fire-second hand seemed to be descending on the chronograph, burning Calella’s spirit, and also symbolizing a forerunner who continued to move forward.
The case has become a stage showing the superb craftsmanship of Swiss watchmaking: the lower side, top corners, and sharp edges of the case have dynamic and delicate mirror polishing.
The side of the case is brushed, which is in contrast to the front polishing process, which makes the case more three-dimensional. The crown and timing buttons are located on the side of the case, and the crown is decorated with a monochrome brand logo.
The new ‘H’ strap is made of stainless steel, which allows you to watch fine brushing while also being ergonomic. The watch can also be paired with a black alligator leather strap.
Stainless steel folding clasp with safety clasp prevents accidental opening of the clasp, and the clasp is decorated with the TAG Heuer classic logo.
Through the sapphire crystal cover, you can admire the TAG Heuer Calibre 36 automatic winding movement, which completes 36,000 vibrations per hour and has a power reserve of about 50 hours. The skeleton pendulum is decorated with a ‘Geneva ripple’ pattern and engraved with the words ‘TAG Heuer — Calibre 36 — 31 Jewels Swiss Made’.
Summary: This Tag Heuer Carrera series flyback chronograph has a rich racing appearance. The polished case is matched with a new H-shaped bracelet, which has an extraordinary charm and shows the unique design and skill of Tag Heuer. Calibre 36, certified by the Swiss Observatory, shakes people’s hearts at a frequency of 36,000 vibrations per hour. The flyback timing function simplifies timing operations and reflects watchmaking skills. Official watch model: CAR2B10.BA0799; reference price: ¥ 64,600 (watch home figure / text source)
