If you like the look of the recently released Carrera Calibre 18 Telemeter, but were hoping for something a little more….well, Gold, then this is the watch for you- the Heuer Carrera Calibre 7 Glassbox.
Over the past decade or so we’ve been lucky to see 1-2 “Heuer” branded models per year, whereas this year already we’ve had three, with a potential fourth on the way. Good news for those who love the Heuer heritage, and an important contrast to the modern, bold watches such as the Carrera Heuer-01.
Like the Calibre 18 Chronograph, the 39mm Calibre 7 has a domed sapphire crystal to give it that old school look and feel.
The watch has a beautifully thin profile too.
The open dial is somewhat reminiscent of some of the quartz Carrera models of the late 1970s, such as the model below.
Movement- Calibre 7
The Calibre 7 is what TAG Heuer call the ETA 2892/ Sellita 300, and while it hasn’t been confirmed which company provides this version of the Calibre 7, most of the recent movements have come from Sellita.

Price & Availability- Heuer Carrera Calibre 7 Yellow Gold Glassbox WAR2140
No confirmed pricing yet for the Carrera Calibre 7, but expect it to sneak under the CHF10,000 mark, which is about right for an 18k Gold watch.
