TAG Heuer the Carrera Calibre 16 Chronograph Day-Date - 43mm Grand Prix de Monaco Limited Edition


The one and only CARRERA, the first sports chronograph designed for professional drivers and sports-car enthusiasts, is the standard-bearer of TAG Heuer’s unrivaled motorsports heritage. Created by Jack Heuer in 1963 and named after the dangerously grueling “Carrera Panamericana Mexico Road Race”, it 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 driving great: Alain Prost, David Coulthard, Kimi Räikkönen, Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button...

This newest addition to the CARRERA legend is standard issue for Vodafone McLaren Mercedes drivers and pays tribute to the most grueling and dangerous race in contemporary racing-- the MONACO GRAND PRIX. The words are lettered in red on its bezel and tachymetre scale, and the race’s logo is engraved on the sapphire caseback, along with the edition number (x/4,000). The black rubber strap is embossed with a unique tire design inspired by the F1 tires of 1963. The wide-open dial is anthracite gray with hand-applied indexes outlined in black luminescence and three counters— chronograph minute at 12, chronograph hour at 6, running second at 9. Fire red touches on the hands and pushbutton dynamize the design, which is classic racing chronograph and cutting-edge Swiss avant-garde.
