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:

The Carrera today is available with a wide range of movements- Calibre 5, Calibre 16, Calibre 17 and the in-house Calibre Heuer 02.
