TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre CH 80 Chronograph: The Classic Carrera Reinvented


While everyone will readily admit that a thin dress watch is the way to go, this point is rarely considered with sports watches. This is why the introduction of the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre CH 80 Chronograph is such an event.

The Carrera Calibre CH 80 is inspired by the first generation of TAG Heuer Carrera chronographs and remains faithful to the design created in 1963 by Jack Heuer. One of the main differences is the in-house Calibre CH 80 movement which despite its very slim 6.5 mm thickness, has an unprecedented 80-hour power reserve.

The displays are arranged in a classic and easy-to-read layout, with the chronograph minutes counter at 3 o’clock, the chronograph hours counter at 9 o’clock and running second counter at 6 o’clock. The black and white colour scheme is again a tribute to the first TAG Heuer Carrera the “Panda”.

Available with either a steel bracelet or sportier black perforated leather strap with red lining, the 41 mm TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre CH 80 uses some of the best style elements of the 60’s Carreras coupled with current innovation to produce the best of the past and the present.

No price has been confirmed but the word is that it will come in at just under $6000 USD.
