TAG introduces a Carrera chrono, but there's a less pricy alternative..

Post by Thunder1 » February 4th 2021, 7:49am

With Hodinkee's assistance, it looks like TAG has brought to market a nice looking chrono..it features its' 80 hour power reserve..

Only available in the HODINKEE Shop or through TAG Heuer itself, two motorsport legends have officially teamed up for the compelling, new Carrera Porsche Chronograph.

From its humble beginnings as a producer of stopwatches and timers to its present-day sponsorship of a Formula E race team, no watch brand is closer aligned with racing than TAG Heuer. And with its distinctive asphalt grey dial and the in-house Calibre Heuer 02 movement inside, this new chronograph doesn't disappoint.

On the other hand(wrist?), Olko watches has this Steinhart 3-hand alternative at a much lower price point..what do you guys think?..

I don't recognise that dial typeface, which apparently is a Porsche typeface. Porsche has used several instrument binnacle fonts over the last 20 years; the current digital one is different to this one. And it's not the 911 script on the back of the car. So where's it from? The owner's manual?

Still, for Heuer fans, it's a nice addition. Not sure I'd put the Porsche bit on the bezel.

Steinhart can produce another similar cartoonish watch, call it the Ocean One Modern and print the dial with a four door 911 image............... or not
