TAG Heuer expands its emblematic Carrera collection with the all-new Carrera Heuer 02 44mm Sport Chronograph

TAG Heuer expands its famous Carrera collection with the new Carrera Heuer 02 44, which offers a new -and sophisticated- take on the brand's racing chronograph. At first it looks like a closed-dial version of its openworked siblings, but there's more than meets the eye. For one, it comes in 44mm only rather than either 43 or 45mm. But the case has also been subtly redesigned, with shorter lugs for increased comfort no matter the size of your wrist. The H-link bracelet too has seen a total redesign.

The dials of the 2020 TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 02 44mm feature a circular brushing pattern, which is a welcome change for the more common sunburst finish - and one not seen that often. The minute and hour counter clearly take center stage. The running -small seconds- at 6:00 has a less prominent presence. Power of course comes from TAG Heuer's Calibre 02, an in-house chronograph movement with column wheel and 80 hours of power reserve. The movement can be admired from the back.

In addition to the blue and black, there's also a rather stunning green dial version, which will be available for a limited time only - though it is not a limited edition per se. This features a stainless steel engraved tachymeter bezel in lieu of the ceramic one found on the others. Like a bit of bling? The stainless steel + rose gold is your choice.
