A MUST 7 DAYS A WEEK
The mission of this collection, unveiled a few months ago by the Le Locle-based brand, is to provide a watch with all the displays you need for everyday use, and a case that fits comfortably on your wrist.
With a modern approach, TAG Heuer presented four new models in its Carrera Date collection last spring. Far from the gigantic diameters in vogue in the 2000s, far from gender clichés and style categorizations, these watches are first and foremost multi-purpose tools, comfortably worn on the wrist, that deliver useful indications, everyday companions that can be relied on to find one’s bearings in time.
Halfway between a classic allure and a sporty temperament, the new watch from the Le Locle-based watchmaker boasts an ergonomic silhouette machined in steel, from its 36mm-diameter case to its link bracelet fastened by a folding clasp. Beneath this metal case beats the Calibre 7, a reliable automatic movement delivering 55 hours of power reserve, whose oscillating weight can be glimpsed through the transparent caseback. Protected by a slightly domed glass, the face of the Carrera Date bursts with color. Indeed, the range of colors offered by TAG Heuer contributes to the expression of each individual’s personality, whether the spirit is more traditional (silver-gray, royal blue), more gentle (almond green) or more assertive (fuchsia pink). Displays are clearly marked on the dial, with centrally-placed Super-LumiNova® baton-type hour and minute hands and a second hand hovering over raised hour-markers, all in golden or silver depending on the reference chosen, and the date in black on a white background in a window at 6 o’clock.
