TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-01 Full Black Matt Ceramic
For the first time, TAG Heuer unveils a totally black and matt ceramic men’s chronograph.
The Carrera HEUER-01 was presented for the first time two years ago at Baselworld. In 2015, the watch formed the cornerstone of a burgeoning new collection, with a new design, a new HEUER-01 in-house calibre, and a new modular case design with 12 different elements enabling multiple combinations of materials and colours.
For this 2017 version, the sleek chronograph has been entirely produced using matt black ceramic. The case, bezel, lugs and case middle are made from black ceramic. This material offers unparalleled scratch-resistance. It presents a micro-blasted finish for a flawless deep black design. Technically, to guarantee perfect water resistance to 100 metres, steel is always present on all the functional parts of the watch (inner box section, screw-down case back, push-pieces, etc) to enable the gaskets to fulfil their function.
The watch has a modern look and is very comfortable thanks to the H-shaped ceramic bracelet. The ceramic is a very tough material yet with a very soft touch. It resists scratching, retains its original color and will know no oxidation.
After five years of continuous improvement and optimisation, the HEUER-01 calibre has reached a very high level of quality while its production costs have been carefully managed, making it the only 45 mm Manufacture-made Chronograph using this type of material available for between 5000 and 7000 CHF, depending on the version.
Over 150 years of watchmaking savoir-faire and technical innovation have made TAG Heuer a global reference in avant-garde sports watches. As it tracked the rise of sports demanding increasingly precise timekeeping, TAG Heuer continually developed its unique capabilities through a long-term vision of what watchmaking is today, and what it will look like tomorrow.Find out more >
