Today, TAG Heuer released a Carrera Chronograph to celebrate Jack Heuer on his 88th birthday.
The Carrera Jack Heuer Gold Limited Edition features a 42 mm solid 18K rose gold case with a silver opaline dial and dual black sunray brushed counters like the Ref. 1158CHN which TAG Heuer loosely based this modern Carrera on.
Gold-plated applied indices and gold-plated hands indicate the time and chronograph elapsed time. The date at 6 o’clock also has a gold-plated frame. Just under the center hand stack, a gold-plated “88” has been applied in a vertical orientation to pay homage to Jack Heuer.
TAG Heuer’s ubiquitous caliber Heuer 02 power the functions for up 80-hours. Visible through the sapphire caseback, the oscillating weight is engraved with Jack Heuer’s motto “Time never stops, why should we?”.
This 2020 tribute timepiece will be open for pre-orders from 19 November 2020 and will be available in TAG Heuer boutiques and online in February 2021.
Retail is $18,450.
