TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887 Chronograph Monaco Grand Prix Limited Edition
A newest addition to the Carrera legend, this chronograph is standard issue for McLaren drivers.
Created by Jack Heuer in 1963, Carrera was the first sports chronograph designed for professional drivers and sports-car enthusiasts. It was named after the dangerously grueling “Carrera Panamericana Mexico Road Race”, and was standard issue for Ferrari drivers. In 1970, every member of the 'scuderia' - Jackie Ickx, Clay Regazzoni, Mario Andretti, Carlos Reutemann and Jody Scheckter - wore a solid gold Carrera engraved with his name and blood type. Since, it has been worn by every TAG Heuer driver: Alain Prost, David Coulthard, Kimi Räikkönen, Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button.
Paying tribute to the famous race, the Carrera Calibre 1887 Chronograph Monaco Grand Prix Limited Edition bears the name of the Monaco Grand Prix, lettered in red, on the ceramic bezel with tachymetre scale, and its official logo is engraved on the sapphire caseback, along with the limited edition number (0001/2,500).
Beneath the glass beats TAG Heuer’s 100% in-house manufactured Calibre 1887 movement. The fetching dial is in black, with two grey stripes and a red line. The hands and hand-applied Arabic numerals are in special “black gold” plating. The 43mm case is in sandblasted Titanium Grade 2 with black titanium carbide coating.
The black rubber strap is embossed with a unique tire design inspired by the F1 tires of 1963, the year the Carrera was born.
