TAG Heuer has introduced a range of new watches at this year’s Watches and Wonders in Geneva, among them is the Carrera Date 36mm, capturing the essence of feminine sophistication, to the luxurious nautical-inspired Carrera Skipper Chronograph in 18K rose gold and the exciting Monaco Split-Seconds Chronograph with its avant-garde design and precision elements. TAG Heuer’s lineup is a celebration of tradition, innovation and the brand’s enduring legacy. Each collection, whether it pays homage to the rich heritage of racing, sailing or the avant-garde spirit of Monaco, showcases the watchmaker’s unmatched craftsmanship and its commitment to pushing the boundaries of timekeeping.

Carrera Chronograph Panda Dial

Kicking things off, the new Carrera Chronograph Panda Dial is the latest iteration of the iconic Carrera collection that pays homage to its storied past, while steering the line toward a future filled with innovative design and updated functionality. The Carrera Chronograph, known for its clear legibility and timeless style, has been a symbol of TAG Heuer’s commitment to excellence since its debut in 1963. Named after the thrilling Carrera Panamericana road race, this collection has consistently been at the forefront of technical prowess and aesthetic sophistication for the brand.

The 2024 Carrera Chronograph draws inspiration from the 7753 SN model, famed for its “panda” dial — featuring a striking contrast between its silver sunray-brushed dial and black azuré subdials. This design choice not only nods to the watch’s racing roots but also enhances readability, a hallmark of Jack Heuer’s original vision. Modern advancements such as the Glassbox design, a 39mm steel case with a sapphire crystal and the integration of the Heuer 02 movement, ensure that this watch stands out in terms of both form and function. The watch’s aesthetic is further enriched by a steel bracelet that complements the dial’s panda configuration, embodying TAG Heuer’s fusion of heritage and innovation. With features such as an 80-hour power reserve and a 5-year extended warranty, the Carrera Chronograph Panda Dial is set to be a landmark release for the watchmaker. Expected to be released in June of 2024, the new Carrera Chronograph Panda Dial will be priced at $7,200 USD.

Carrera Date 36mm

Additionally, TAG has introduced exquisite additions to its prestigious Carrera collection, each a beacon of feminine sophistication and luxury. The TAG Heuer Carrera Date 36mm series, launched with great anticipation, showcases the brand’s unparalleled commitment to superior design and craftsmanship. Utilizing precious materials like 18K 5N rose gold, Mother-of-Pearl and diamonds, these timepieces are a symphony of luxury and refined taste, embodying understated femininity.

Reflecting on the heritage of the TAG Heuer Carrera, the 36mm editions pay tribute to the original design ethos of the collection first introduced in 1963. This size nods to the watch’s origins and also represents a perfect canvas for the latest expressions of the Carrera legacy, offering a seamless blend of masculine and feminine design cues. The 2024 additions include models featuring a captivating copper dial with a snailed brushed finish, a radiant white Mother-of-Pearl dial with a gradient track and a third model that marries the luminous charm of Mother-of-Pearl with the luxurious sparkle of diamonds. These timepieces are complemented by the iconic Carrera H bracelet, available in steel or a mix of steel and 18k 5N rose gold. Powered by the Calibre 7 automatic movement, which offers a 56-hour power reserve and is designed with enhanced ergonomics, the latest TAG Heuer Carrera Date 36mm models are expected to be released in June of 2024, with prices ranging from $5,200 – $7,410 USD.

Carrera Skipper Chronograph

Next up is the Carrera Skipper Chronograph, now elegantly crafted in 18K 5N rose gold. This release marks a grand return to the world of yachting, enhancing the celebrated Carrera Skipper collection. Following the successful launch of the Carrera Skipper chronograph in steel, this luxurious iteration is designed for those who hold an appreciation for the art of sailing and fine watchmaking. Based on the acclaimed “glassbox” design that celebrated the 60th anniversary of the Carrera chronograph, the gold Skipper is powered by the specialized Heuer 02 (Ref. TH20-06) in-house caliber, tailored specifically for regatta timing. The construction of the 39mm case in 18K 5N rose gold, featuring both fine brushed and polished finishes, speaks to the high-end collector while maintaining its status as a fully functional sailing instrument.

Drawing inspiration from the historic Skipper Reference 7754 of 1968, the new gold version combines a sea-blue main dial with vividly contrasting subdials to ensure optimal legibility in the regatta’s critical moments. This color palette pays homage to the original Skipper’s design and also celebrates TAG Heuer’s longstanding connection with maritime sports, tracing back to its collaboration with the New York Yacht Club’s “Intrepid” in the 1967 America’s Cup. The watch’s color scheme – incorporating Lagoon Green, Intrepid Teal and Regatta Orange – is inspired by the vivid hues associated with sailing and designed for clear visibility against the backdrop of the sea. The introduction of the 18K 5N rose gold Carrera Skipper adds a luxurious dimension to TAG Heuer’s nautical chronographs and continues the brand’s rich legacy in the world of competitive sailing and is expected to be released in June of 2024 at a price of $21,500 USD.

Monaco Split-Seconds Chronograph

Last but not least, TAG Heuer once again demonstrates its prowess in the realm of Haute Horlogerie d’Avant-Garde with the introduction of the Monaco Split-Seconds Chronograph, available in both red and blue editions. This launch stands as a testament to the watchmaker’s dedication to combining its rich heritage with groundbreaking innovation. The Monaco Split-Seconds Chronograph is set to enchant with a blend of spectacular movement and exciting design. Drawing from over a century of expertise in split-second chronographs, TAG Heuer’s latest creation is a direct descendant of the pioneering spirit that drove the brand to achieve remarkable feats in precision timekeeping, like the Mikrograph’s 1/100th second accuracy in 1916.

Celebrating 55 years since the debut of the model, the Monaco Split-Seconds Chronograph innovates with its architecture, featuring a case half crafted from grade-5 titanium and half from sapphire, creating a watch that is not only visually stunning but also incredibly light, weighing in at just 85 grams. The heart of this masterpiece, the TH81-00 mechanical split-seconds chronograph caliber, is a testament to TAG Heuer’s commitment to excellence and innovation, crafted in collaboration with Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier. This caliber, entirely made of titanium, stands as the lightest automatic chronograph movement ever created by TAG Heuer, capable of measuring two separate time intervals simultaneously with its “rattrapante” function. The Monaco Split-Seconds Chronograph is a journey into the essence of watchmaking, pushing the boundaries of precision and design. Each timepiece, offered in dynamic red or timeless blue, is a nod to TAG Heuer’s racing DNA and its iconic Monaco collection’s original color scheme, expected to be released in June 2024 with prices starting at $138,000 USD.
