Carrera (TAG Heuer)

The TAG Heuer Carrera is in many ways the classic TAG Heuer watch. It all started with the Heuer Carrera introduced in 1963 by Jack Heuer, and was discontinued by Heuer in the early 1980s. Initially ignored by TAG Heuer, the brand reintroduced the Carrera in 1996 as part of the re-edition series. On this page you can read all the Calibre 11 reviews and articles featuring Carrera watches and Chronographs. To read about the history of the Carrera, check out our dedicated website here: http://carrera.calibre11.com

The Carrera today is available with a wide range of movements- Calibre S, Calibre 5, Calibre 16, Calibre 17, Calibre 49, Calibre 1887 and Mikrograph.

While some thought that TAG Heuer’s haute horlogerie ambitions would be cast aside with the change in the brand’s pricing and positioning strategy, the unveiling of the Carrera Heuer-02t demonstrated how the two ideas could work together.
