More than just a reissue, TAG Heuer has given the vintage model a few upgrades. Keeping with its classic triple subdial configuration, the company has reworked the case into a more modern, larger size of 39mm in stainless steel, at the same time making the watch more dress-watch friendly with a thinner construction largely thanks to a thinner, upgraded Calibre Heuer 02 movement, replacing the old Valjoux 72. The new movement boasts an impressive power reserve of 80 hours and comes complete with an engraved rotor celebrating the 160th anniversary of the brand. The faceted hands are now also coated with beige SuperLuminova for a vintage aesthetic whilst increasing the performance of the watch’s lume.
For the watch collectors out there, the TAG Heuer 160 Years Silver Limited Edition will be available some time in June, with a limited run of 1,860 pieces only — a nod to the year the Swiss company was born.
