TAG Heuer has revealed the first look at its 2021 Carrera Heuer 02 Tourbillon Blue Dial. The latest timepiece in the Swiss luxury watchmaker’s repertoire combines the best of its Carrera Sport and Carrera Tourbillon. The model comes together with a splash of blue on the brand’s first-ever Heuer 02T model with a conventional dial.
The blue, arguably a main highlight of the piece, accentuates the dial, different from the previous Skeleton dial/plate that quickly became a TAG Heuer hallmark in the era of legendary watchmaker Jean-Claude Biver. The change to the dial sees a large cut-out aptly situated at 6 o’clock in place of the usual running seconds register to ensure the Tourbillon can be seen working its magic.
This latest model of the Heuer 02T utilizes the same 45mm case as the other Tourbillon models, but this time the case is made from Grade 5 Titanium and also “featuring a ceramic fixed blue bezel.” The main selling point of the newest Carrera is its beautifully blue star-burst dial. Blue details highlight the tips of the sub-dial hands and also appears on the crown. Those with a keen eye for detail may also see the slight blue accent on the tip of the central chronograph hand.
This Heuer 02T combines the in-house Heuer 02 with a Tourbillon regulator, allowing the flagship to offer the model as its most affordable Tourbillon watch yet. The watch features a blue oscillating rotor and the movement is a certified Chronometer.
