First Look: Carrera Heuer-02t Tourbillon Baguette Diamonds

Worried that your new Carrera Heuer-02t tourbillon won’t stand out sufficiently from the crowd? Never fear, because new for 2017 is the Carrera Heuer-02t Diamond collection. There are two new models in the range, the first with diamonds on the bezel, and the second that takes things even further, with diamonds on the lugs and bracelet.
