Pre-Basel: Tag Heuer announces 43mm Carrera Heuer-01

Tag Heuer announced its original 45mm Carrera Heuer-01 sports chronograph at Baselworld 2015, it was the first watch the brand released under the watchful eye of Jean-Claude Biver (our story here). Two years on Tag Heuer has announced a new Carrera Heuer-01, this time with a smaller 43mm case.

We reckon Tag Heuer has widened the Heuer-01’s appeal with this new case size.

Tag Heuer introduces two Manchester United chronographs

Last year English football club Manchester United appointed Tag Heuer as its official timekeeper, so it comes as no surprise that the brand has now announced two new watches. Both are chronographs, and both feature the Premier League club’s logo on their dials and casebacks.

Introducing the Tag Heuer Carrera Mikrograph Anniversary Edition: 1916-2016

December 2014 was when Jean-Claude Biver stepped in as CEO of Tag Heuer, and since then the brand has focused on offering accessible timepieces that tug at heart strings. It has been a successful formula and now, with the introduction of the Carrera Mikrograph Anniversary Edition: 1916-2016, the brand is proving that it can do haute horology while keeping its focus on value.

The timepiece features a white lacquered dial, and looks like a vintage Heuer stopwatch.

Every so often you come across a watch that rewards a keen eye, a timepiece that packs in so many minute details that it speaks directly to the loupe-wielding watchnerd in you. We reckon Tag Heuer’s 2016 Carrera Calibre Heuer 01 is one such piece, and we’ve got the pictures to prove it.

It’s a Carrera the likes of which have never been produced before.

Tag Heuer takes over MOE’s Ski Dubai

That is a bit of a sensationalist headline but, for one day at least, it was absolutely true. Tag Heuer chose Mall of the Emirates’ Ski Dubai to launch its 2016 collection on the 30th of May, and we were in attendance to check out the new timepieces.

Tag Heuer introduces the Carrera Calibre Heuer 01

Just a few short months after Jean-Claude Biver stepped in as CEO, Tag Heuer has added a striking new timepiece to its iconic Carrera collection. The Carrera Calibre Heuer 01 is unlike any Carrera that the brand released in the past, and is said to mark a new direction for the company, under the leadership of Mr. Biver.

We've heard rumors that this piece was conceptualised in January 2015, and ready for BaselWorld in March. Impressive.
