TAG HEUER CARRERA CHRONOGRAPH GMT: TRAVEL FOR DNA

TAG Heuer presents a new version of its in-house movement with a GMT function. A tool matching the young generation’s hunger for travel and adventure.

Epitomizing the Avant-Garde from its creation in 1963 right up to the brand new line, and including innovative pieces such as the ultramodern Connected Modular, the TAG Heuer Carrera collection celebrates its 55th anniversary in 2018.

A fantastic occasion for the Swiss watch brand to unveil a new chronograph version equipped with a GMT function. This new model adopts the design codes and DNA of the Heuer Carrera, featuring the original "3-6-9" counter layout from 1963.

The chronograph minutes and hours are at 3 and 9 o'clock, with the permanent small second at 6 o'clock and the date window at 4:30, completed by the GMT function. It is the first time that TAG Heuer has added this complication to its prestigious manufacture movement.

The second time zone, an ultra-practical feature that can be adjusted with the crown, is read using the lacquered red hand and the black and blue ceramic bezel, which has a 24-hour GMT scale. To ensure optimum legibility, the GMT hand has been ingeniously mounted in a secondary position — between the hour and minute hands — enabling it to pass over the indexes and skim the GMT scale.

The manufacture movement, visible through the skeleton dial, is housed inside a solid 45 mm steel case, water-resistant to 100 metres. As daring as it is refined, this model boldly demonstrates the height of the Swiss watch brand's avant-garde technology.
