Tag Heuer continues its passion for racing with a new Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph in striking black and gold.

Inspired by the brand’s famed yellow gold Heuer reference 1158 CHN (a personal favourtite of Jack Heuer), which were traditionally awarded to winning drivers, Tag Heuer has created a bold new take on its acclaimed Carrera, with a never before seen dial and black and golden gilded subdials.

The new timepiece’s 42-mm case is made of solid 18K 3N yellow gold, with gold pushers and crown, while the rich black sunray brushed dial brings sophistication, depth, a subtle play of light to the wrist. Contrasting against the deep black dial are two “azuré” and gilded gold chronograph and a subtle at 3 and 9 o’clock, while at 6 o’clock a discreet permanent second indicator and date window complete the harmonious tricompax layout.

The indexes and hands are plated in 18K 3N yellow gold and polished, enhancing the dial’s legibility and elegance.

Connoisseurs might also recognize the two-tone palette of the legendary John Player Special livery, which stood out in Formula 1 in the 1970s and 80s. Tag Heuer ambassador and world champion Ayrton Senna’s 98T Lotus also sported the world-famous livery at the beginning of his brilliant career.
