TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer- 02T
For too long traditionalists have had their heads in the clouds convinced of the unshakeable value of high complications, but now TAG Heuer has brought the lofty tourbillon back down to Earth, as far as pricing is concerned. The Carrera Heuer02T is the most affordable Swiss- made tourbillon chronograph yet, with neither precious materials nor hand-finishing usually associated with the revered complication (the titanium tourbillon cage is topped with carbon fibre!). Rather, it is simply a solid tourbillon movement that’s able to pass COSC certification, developed directly from the brand’s defunct CH- 80 chronograph and housed in the latest generation Carrera Heuer case (same as the Heuer 01) made of titanium with 12 modular components. Sporty, techy and obviously appealing to a younger audience, the Carrera Heuer- 02T is everything Jean- Claude Biver envisioned the brand to be as a gateway into luxury watchmaking.
