Analysis: The Future of TAG Heuer’s Calibre CH80

Major news last week, with TAG Heuer announcing that it would focus its manufacturing efforts solely on the Calibre 1887 movement and postpone the launch of the first watch intended to use the new Calibre CH80. For collectors, this was a disappointing development, given both the excitement around the new movement and the positive reaction to the Carrera CH80 that… Read More

Up Close: Carrera 1887 Carbon Matrix Composite (Ref. CAR2C90)

I’ve always found the use of different case materials to be interesting. It’s one reason why I enjoy the second generation of Carrera so much, as it used such a range of materials.[1] The majority were steel, of course, but it also came in gold-plate, 18K yellow gold, black PVD (Monza and Modena) and chrome-plate (also Monza).

Live Photos: Carrera 1887 Blue Dial 41mm (Ref. CAR2115)
