First Look: Carrera Mikrograph Anthracite
Following the success of the Carrera Mikrograph unveiled in Geneva earlier this year, TAG Heuer has released a second version of the watch- also a Limited Edition. but in Anthracite rather than Brown. There was no initial plan for a second Mikrograph- it was simply a case of the demand for the watch significantly outstripping the supply of the first version, which was limited to 150 watches.
Limited Edition I: Brown
Limited Edition II: Anthracite
The second model is also a Limited Edition of 150, with the only real change being that the brown inner-dial and leather strap are replaced by Anthracite (a slate grey). The new colour works very well on the dial, and has a great start-burst finish like the Carrera’s of the 1970s. I’m not as sure about the anthracite leather strap- I’d like to see the watch on a black crocodile strap to see which colour works better. While I think that TAG Heuer over use the Crocodile leather straps, they work perfectly with the Mikrograph- it’s the sports watches that I think look better on a Calf-leather strap.
Price and Availability
Like the first version, the Anthracite Carrera Mikrograph will retail in Switzerland for CHF 50,000 and is available in the next few weeks.
