50th TAG HEUER CAR­RERA

24-7 (Singapore) - - A For .... Anniversaries -

In­spired by the Car­rera Panamer­i­cana Mex­ico Road Race, re­garded as the world’s most gru­elling open-road en­durance com­pe­ti­tion, and con­ceived by Jack Heuer, en­gi­neer ex­traor­di­naire and de­scen­dant of the Heuer fam­ily, the Car­rera watch had plenty to live up to at the time of its launch. But just as well, since it en­sured that the col­lec­tion met the ex­pec­ta­tions of watch and mo­tor-rac­ing en­thu­si­asts alike, bran­dish­ing sleek curves, dash­board-style counters and high-per­for­mance chrono­graph move­ments. For the Car­rera’s 50th birth­day, the com­pany marches out a slew of cel­e­bra­tory mod­els, in­clud­ing two chrono­graphs – the Cal­i­bre 36 Chrono­graph Flyback, which beats at an ul­tra-high fre­quency of 36,000 vi­bra­tions per hour; and the Cal­i­bre 16 Day-Date – as well as the Cal­i­bre 8 Grande Date GMT two-time-zone vari­ant for the jet set.
