Tag Heuer launched the original Carrera Chronograph in 1963 as a tribute to the epic road race known as the Carrera Panamericana. Though thoroughly updated, this modern version echoes the clean lines and sober elegance of the original. The large polished steel case holds a black dial with luminescent diamond-set hands, hand-applied indexes, and an automatic date display at the three o'clock hour. Three circular subdials display chronograph hours and minutes and small seconds. The dial is capped with a virtually scratch-proof sapphire crystal and framed by a black bezel with tachymeter readings. A fluted crown, identical to that on the original model, is designed for easy handling. This watch is showcased on a handsome and durable brushed steel bracelet with polished accents. Calibre 16 automatic chronograph movement, visible through the see-through caseback, delivers excellent precision.
