Pitch Watch alert again.
TAG Heuer has just launched the TAG Heuer Carrera Green Special Edition and as the name implies it is green, definitely green is the color of 2021, there are so many launches among the different brands that decided to choose green as the color of this year that makes us wonder how many more are going to appear and attention that we are only now in May, but we will wait to see what more is upcoming.
This new release is based on the Heuer Carrera ref. 2447 from 1963 and although it does not present the original 36mm case it comes with very interesting dimensions of 39mm which are more suitable for today. With polished angular lugs, domed sapphire glass, and polished pump pushers it oozes a vintage style.
But it is the dial that deserves more prominence since it is presented in a bluish-green tone or if we want to be precise a teal green dial. There we can find three sub-dials, a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, a small seconds at 6 and a 12-hour counter at 9, silver applied hour indexes and faceted hands all filled with Super-LumiNova in a warm tone and all the inscriptions on the dial including the Heuer logo and “Carrera” are in white.
Inside operates the automatic movement Caliber Heuer 02 developed entirely in Switzerland with 168 components that offer up to 80 hours of power reserve. The movement is possible to be observed through the sapphire glass case back.
The watch comes with a black alligator leather strap and will be limited to 500 units at a price of € 6,300.
