Carrera 'Tete De Vipere' Chronograph Tourbillon Chronometer

Tag Heuer


1 212 935 1869


In celebration of 55 years of its famed Carrera watch, TAG Heuer unveils a limited-edition chronograph that combines the chronograph tracking function with the brand's tourbillon escapement. Crafted in a midnight blue ceramic 45mm case with ceramic bezel, the new Carrera timepiece features a tachymeter scale for measuring speeds and a domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating. Even the movement, the Heuer-02T caliber with a 'Viper's Head' tourbillon, features touches of blue for a cohesive and contemporary look. The dial is black skeletonized and the chronograph counters are blue. The watch holds the 'Tête de Vipère' certification of excellence, as issued by Besançon Observatory. This prestigious stamp has only been awarded to 500 watches since 2006, when Besançon Observatory (originally founded in 1897) relaunched its certification. It is given only after the watch (as a whole and not just the movement) is subjected to and passes 16 days of intense testing in five positions and at three different temperatures.

Life's best moments are often unscheduled, instinctive, within the last second of time. Tag Heuer believes that it is these moments that are also the most significant, and hence time should always be precise and dependable to ensure that you can seize it. To achieve this end, the brand has kept pace with evolutions in the sporting industry, one that also values the spontaneity and speed of life. Its timepieces make it possible to capture sporting performance to the very smallest fragment of time.Tag Heuer's success in exactitude crowned it the first watchmaking brand to sponsor the Formula 1 World Championship. From its Mikrograph chronograph that is five times more accurate than any other to the Tag Heuer Carrera Plasma - the first watch to feature lab-grown diamonds - its watches are indicative of horology's best triumphs and remarkable milestones. The watchmaker exemplifies that innovation can be eco-conscious and conflict-free, having employed the Kimberly process since 2003 to ensure that all of its diamonds comply with UN resolutions.
