Sneak Peek: TAG Heuer Carrera 160 Years Silver Limited Edition
The 2020 TAG Heuer Carrera 160 Years Silver Limited Edition in a stainless steel case (reference: CBK221B.FC6479) marks the 160th anniversary of the original Carrera lineup that was then inspired by the legendary Carrera Panamericana.
The movement — Heuer 02 — used is an automatic manufacture chronograph movement. It is comprised of 168 components — including a column wheel and a vertical clutch — and beats at the frequency of 4Hz (28’000 A/h) allowing for a very impressive 80 hour power reserve.
The dial shows the functions of hours, minutes, central chronograph seconds hand, 12-hour chronograph counter at 9 o’clock, 30-minute chronograph counter at 3 o’clock, and permanent second counter at 6 o’clock on a silver sun-ray brushed dial. (Please see our detailed review here for more info on the dial face).
The display case-back is engraved “LIMITED EDITION” and “ONE OF 1860”.
It comes on a black alligator strap with polished stainless-steel folding clasp with double safety push-buttons.
The water resistance is a good — 100m (10 ATM) — on this one.
Cost of these watches: 6450 USD.
Watch Ya Gonna Do About It?
