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: http://carrera.calibre11.com

The Carrera today is available with a wide range of movements- Calibre S, Calibre 5, Calibre 16, Calibre 17, Calibre 49, Calibre 1887 and Mikrograph.

In Depth review- Carrera Heuer-01 Black Ceramic Edition

As the Carrera Heuer-01 range continues to expand, we’ve been able to get our hands on one of the most anticipated models in the new range- the Black Ceramic Edition. Yes, we’ve had a phalanx of “blacked out” Carreras over recent years, but those have either been coated steel, titanium or carbon fibre, rather than ceramic.
