Celebrating 50 Years of Carrera

Posted by: David Chalmers   |   30 January 2013   |   One Comment  

Unless this is your first time to Calibre 11, you’ll already know that 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the TAG Heuer Carrera. Fifty is no mean milestone and so we wanted to celebrate in the right way- by creating a dedicated 50 Years of Carrera website

Screen Shot 2013-02-25 at 9.35.19 PMYou’ll find a review of each decade of the Carrera, which sets out the highs, and occasional lows of the Carrera, as the watch evolved from the simple 36mm model of 1963, all the way through to the latest 45mm Carrera 1887 Jack Heuer edition. We’ll step through 10 generations of the Carrera and look at the influence made by each decade. Oh yes…and Jack Heuer tells the story of how the Carrera came to be. In short, everything you’ve ever wanted to know about the Carrera, all in one place.

My sincere thanks to all the collectors who allowed their wonderful photos to be published, and of course to Mark Moss who made sure there were no (glaring) errors. Enjoy!

    Vivo en Venezuela, estoy interesado en obtener un modelo de los conmemorativos a los 50 años del modelo de reloj carrera, pero en mi país resulta demasiado costos y actualmente es muy dificil por no decir imposible obtener divisas para su compra; Pudiese haber alguna forma de obetnerlo directamente de la casa matriz? agradecido de antemano por su atención…. gracias.
