TAG Heuer Carrera 1964 Re-Edition of 1996

Post by Racer-X » September 9th 2018, 6:41pm

"TAG Heuer’s chronographs enjoyed greater success in the mid 1990s than ever before, but there was a growing demand for historical flair. The result was a high-fidelity replica of the Carrera from 1964.

After an eleven-year hiatus, the Heuer Carrera chronograph returned in 1996 as a high-fidelity re-edition original Carrera from 1963/64. Only the name “Carrera” was missing on the dial because of a conflict between brands. The reproduction encased hand-wound Lemania Caliber 1873. The first Heuer Carrera chronographs were still equipped with Valjoux Caliber 72.

Ever since the birth of the Carrera, Heuer had always been closely affiliated with motorsport. In the 1990s the brand seamlessly continued this liaison under its new name “TAG Heuer” in partnership with Formula One racecar driver Ayrton Senna. The palette of models changed. They were now arranged numerically."
