Calibre Heuer 01

The TAG Heuer Calibre Heuer 01 is an automatic chronograph movement based on the Calibre 1887, featuring a unique oscillating weight shape resembling a car steering wheel, fitting for the Carrera collection which is named after the motorsport race. Flashes of red, on the column wheel, hour markers, chronograph hands and case, hint once more to TAG Heuer’s motorsport DNA.

General Features

Legibility and durability are the watchwords here. Waterproof, shockproof, and anti-magnetic, the Carrera is made to last. As for legibility, the clean dial and well-spaced markers make it easy for drivers to read the chronograph accurately at a glance.

The chronograph versions of today’s Carrera reissue have what’s sometimes known as a “tricompax” layout, with subdials set at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock. Many find this the most attractive style of chronograph design, because it inherently looks more balanced.

Heuer initially made stopwatches for racing drivers. The original Carrera watch, launched a good decade before sport chronograph watches became mainstream, was intended as a tool for the racing community – hence the archetypal motorsports aesthetic.
