 +Sports watch by [[TAG Heuer]]
 +===== History =====
 +The now legendary **Carrera**, which was launched [[1964]] on the occasion of the //Carrera Panamericana// in Mexico, the then most dangerous road race in the world, is the first [[chronograph]] specifically developed for the time measurement of car racing and thus a true classic. In addition to the functionality and ease of handling also the elegant and timeless design of this watch with its large, perfectly legible silver dial was impressing. The above picture shows one of the first models, here in the version with [[Tricompax]] arrangement of the stop hand.
 +The Carrera became one of the most famous sports [[chronograph]]s in watch history. Even today it still remains topical and convincing due to its clear and at the same time friendly aesthetic. Its dial captivates with its harmonious balance.
 +Forty years after the introduction of the first Carrera TAG Heuer offers some variations which are faithful to the original design this watch, but present more powerful features. Most models are now equipped with [[automatic]] movements and have a [[domed]], scratch-resistant [[sapphire crystal]], hand-applied [[luminous]] indexes and a fluted [[crown]], which facilitates the winding.
 +On the occasion of the historic car rally //Ennstal Classic// through the Austrian Alps, a special limited edition of 50 pieces of Carrera was presented. This model appears particularly athletic in conjunction with the black dial and the red stop hand and with one [[totaliser]] dial marked in red. The additional date display at 6 h preserves the dial symmetry, for which the original classic from [[1964]] was already known.
