AF­FORD­ABLE LUX­URY

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.
