Analysis: The Future of TAG Heuer’s Calibre CH80

Major news last week, with TAG Heuer announcing that it would focus its manufacturing efforts solely on the Calibre 1887 movement and postpone the launch of the first watch intended to use the new Calibre CH80. For collectors, this was a disappointing development, given both the excitement around the new movement and the positive reaction to the Carrera CH80 that… Read More

Hands on Review- TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887 43mm Ceramic Bezel

There’s nothing quite like the pressure of replacing a highly successful watch. Sure, you can experiment with niche models and Limited Editions, where the cost of getting it wrong is minor and the financial fall-out quickly forgotten. But make a wrong move with a volume seller and it can be a “New Coke” case study all over again. And so… Read More

Hands on Review- TAG Heuer Carrera 1887 Jack Heuer Edition

The star of TAG Heuer’s 2013 Carrera range is the Carrera 1887 Jack Heuer Edition (Ref. CAR2C11), effectively a mainstream production version of 2012’s Mikrogirder concept that marks the 50th anniversary of the Carrera.

Up Close: Carrera 1887 Carbon Matrix Composite

I’ve always found the use of different case materials to be interesting. It’s one reason why I enjoy the second generation of Carrera so much, as it used such a range of materials.[1] The majority were steel, of course, but it also came in gold-plate, 18K yellow gold, black PVD (Monza and Modena) and chrome-plate (also Monza). It’s by no… Read More

And for good reason, these are colours (or, more specifically, tones) that aren’t subject to whims and the vagaries of fashion… Read More
