DESCRIPTION

Back to the watch. The watch has a round 41 mm diameter case and comes with a choice of a black or white dial. Both dials can be had with a bracelet or a black leather strap. The watch is your basic two-button three sub-dial chronograph which has two counters (at the 12 and 6 o'clocks) to measure intervals of time of up to 12 hours. Continous seconds is displayed in a third sub-dial. The date has move to the 6 o'clock position from the 3 o'clock position in the TAG Heuer Carrera Automatic Chronograph. The bezel of the watch has a Tachymetre scale which is used for measuring the speed of a moving object moving through a given distance. All in all, your basic chronograph. Coming in the same size as the older Carrera's, looking too much like the older model and it's in-house movement being less than ground breaking... well, lets just hope it does not cost much more than the older watch.
Heritage. The Carrera line of watches is not named after the Porsche Carrera but after a race called the Carrera Panamericana. After the Mexican section of the Panamerican Highway was completed in 1950, the Mexican government sponsored a nine-stage, five-day race across the country. The race called, Carrera Panamericana, was intended to attract international business into Mexico. The race was ran along the new Panamerican Highway, which crossed Mexico from north to south for a total distance of over 3,000 kilometers. The race was limited to stock sedans with five seats. While many professional drivers joined, many of the competitors were regular Joe's who ran as privateers.
To commemorate this race, TAG Heuer launched a new line of chronograph watches in 1963 called the "Carrera."
