This year, designers at the Swiss brand have re-styled the 36 mm version of the Carrera Lady model in order to offer the full range with an automatic caliber or a quartz movement.

Although the styles are all geared towards the Monaco, this year celebrating its 50th anniversary, or the new growing Autavia collection, the range is, nevertheless, turning heads and mainly those of women: Carrera Lady. This watch, inspired by the legendary men’s timepiece, worn by the TAG Heuer ambassador, Cara Delevingne, 27-year-old British model and actress, has been freshened up to better appeal to women.

Presented in a curved steel case, water-resistant up to a depth of 100m, the watch is crowned with a polished bezel set with 54 brilliant-cut diamonds. The back is complete with a sapphire-crystal window to view the caliber 5, an automatic movement that offers a power reserve of 38 hours, or for the model powered by a quartz movement, a metal disc stamped with the TAG Heuer logo and the name Carrera Lady.

A timer circles the watch face that has either silver or gold markers. In the center, two dauphine-style hands and a second hand show the hours, minutes and seconds respectively. The date is displayed in a trapezoidal-shaped window at 3 o’clock.

This new TAG Heuer watch has a large variety of straps available: steel links, alligator leather in purple, taupe or gray, or black or white quilted leather.

Price: from 2,550 (mother-of-pearl dial and polished bezel) to 4,550 CHF (mother-of-pearl dial and set bezel)
