LVMH Watch Week: TAG Heuer Revisits Carrera Dato

From JustLuxe content partner iW Magazine

TAG Heuer revisits its 1968 Carrera Dato with a monochrome teal green TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph that features the Dato’s signature minute counter subdial at the three o’clock position and date window at the 9 o’clock position.

The new TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph.

The new watch joins a slate of TAG Heuer debuts during LVMH Watch Week. Additional unveilings also include a Carrera Chronograph Tourbillon with a teal green dial that matches the new chronograph, an Aquaracer Solargraph, and a new Carrera Date Plasma model set with lab-grown diamonds.  

The new TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph joins an expanding collection of Carrera models topped with the domed sapphire Glassbox crystal first seen on many of the watchmaker’s 2023 debuts. The Glassbox pays homage to domed hesalite crystal designs from the 1970s.

The new 39mm steel watch nicely melds TAG Heuer’s vintage design with technical updates and a few modern touches. These include circular brushed finishing and a slightly curved flange that runs along the edge of the dial, enhancing marker visibility.

The watch also showcases TAG Heuer’s impressive in-house Heuer 02 (TH20-07), which offers a strong eighty-hour power reserve and bidirectional automatic winding.

TAG Heuer attaches the new Carrera Chronograph to a black alligator leather strap. 

Price: $6,550. 

Also new in 2024:

TAG Heuer unveils this TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Tourbillon (pictured below) with its own teal green circular brushed dial. The 42mm watch features a tourbillon cage at 6 o’clock and is cased within the watchmaker’s Glassbox crystal.

The curved sapphire crystal provides the wearer with a clear view of the tourbillon.

Inside is the Heuer 02 – TH20-09 with bidirectional automatic winding. Price: $24,050. 

Also look for a notable expansion of the Aquaracer Professional Aquaracer Solargraph collection, now with a series of 34mm steel-cased models, each with a different dial color and two with diamond markers.

The new size joins existing 40mm models. It comes with the key features of the full Aquaracer collection: a unidirectional rotating bezel, screw-down crown, water resistance to 200 meters, luminous markings, sapphire crystal, and a double safety clasp.

Of course, here the timekeeping is powered by light. Prices begin at $2,150. 

TAG Heuer also adds a new model to its glittering Carrera Date Plasma Diamant d’Avant-Garde series, adding a version with yellow diamonds.

The new 36mm white-gold-cased model, with a sparkling polycrystalline dial, features 4.8 carats of lab-grown diamonds and 1.4 carats of yellow lab-grown diamonds.
