History of Tag Heuer Carrera watches
The original Carrera model, crafted by Jack Heuer in 1963, was inspired by the dangerous and adrenaline fueled Carrera Panamericana auto race. Built to withstand the vibrations and pressures experienced in the fast-paced event, the watch became the first chronograph to be worn by professional drivers.
Since this time, Tag Heuer has enjoyed a strong connection to the world of motorsport, whether that be through its watch designs, event sponsorships or brand ambassadors.
As a result, the collection we see today pays respectful homage to the brand’s roots. The Carrera collection in particular, features modern takes on the vintage classic. Among these is a wide selection of designs in various strap materials, precious metal cases and functional features, making the Carrera family one of Tag Heuer’s most diverse.
