TAG Heuer Grand Carrera Calibre 17 RS2 Limited Edition
© TAG Heuer
As part of the range “Grand Carrera”, presented by TAG Heuer in 2007, the company launched this chronograph, which is limited to 1.000 pieces, at the Baselworld in 2008. The case is manufactured of titanium grade 2 (Ti2), a metal which is three times stronger than steel but weighs only half as much. The bracelet in mat black alligator leather is coated with soft-touch material and has an ergonomic folding clasp. A black titanium carbide coating prevents scratching of the case. The red of the seconds hand is perfectly contrasting to the black of the case and the dial and also appears on the crown, on the strap seams, and on the back side of the strap.
The display mode enables intuitive reading of the elapsed time The time displays rotate around a fixed hand - the small second at 3 o'clock and the minute counter of the chronograph at 9 o'clock. The “Côtes de Genève” decor with polished edges on the rotation system, the hands, the logo, the hand-applied indexes in black gold as well as the double caseback with sapphire crystal, which is sharing the view of the engine, all give the watch an exclusive note.
