While we have looked at the released Heuer Carrera Calibre 17 before, it’s nice to look at it again as part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations and see them in the context of the entire Carrera collection.When the Heuer Carrera Calibre 17 was introduced last year, it was to mark the 80th birthday of Jack Heuer and showcase the design principles that led him to create the early Tag Heuer Carrera chronographs. Designed for racing and sporting use, these chronographs had to be highly legible and be read quickly at a glance. The proportions of every element on the dial were studied relentlessly in order to come up with the famous Carrera look, which aside from being highly functional, is stunningly beautiful as well.
And notice there that I didn’t say Tag Heuer. As you can see on the dial, the red logo there is the original one used before Popular Tag Heuer Replica Watches manufacturers of high-tech items such as ceramic turbochargers for Formula One cars, acquired Heuer to become Tag Heuer.The other watch we are looking at is the Jack Heuer Edition of the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887 Chronograph. This watch is basically the product of a modern design and production sensibility with input from Jack Heuer himself on many aspects of its conception.
Unlike a typical Calibre 1887 Chronograph, this watch differs markedly by the fact that the movement is turned on its side to become a Bullhead chronograph, with the chrono-pushers sitting at the top of the case. The Swiss Tag Heuer Replica Watches other most noticeable feature is the asymmetrical case which is the same shape as the one used in the Mikrogirder. The combination of these two features means that the watch sits higher on your wrist and makes it markedly easier for your fingers to access the timing functions.
In this production watch however, it is black titanium carbide steel that is used for the case material, which itself is 45mm wide and should have a sturdy presence on the wrist. Add to that the same color scheme used on the Best Tag Heuer Replica Watches here on the Calibre 1887, and you can see that the two pieces are related, design wise. However, unlike the Calibre 17 with its closed case back, the Calibre 1887 bears Jack Heuer’s coat of arms and signature in red on the smoked sapphire case back, through which the movement can be seen.
