TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 02 To Debut At Baselworld 2018

by Administrator | post a comment

TAG Heuer got so excited about the new Heuer 02, they just simply couldn't hold it back any longer. Behold, the pre-Baselworld 2018 debut of the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 02 and with it the combination of a familiar look with some notable updates, a new-for-the-collection caliber, and an inexplicably dismissed hyphen, all thrown at the competition – and the watch buying masses – at some highly competitive prices.

First, let's talk size. The TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 02 Chronograph replica comes exclusively in a 43mm wide case – note that there will be a 45mm version with a GMT function that TAG Heuer hints at in their press release, but doesn't tell us more for the time being. Rumor has it, the new Heuer 02 will replace the 43mm Heuer-01, while the 45mm Heuer-01 will continue to live on. This, neatly, leads us to the movement: the Heuer-02, which we have seen in the generally well-received Autavia (reviewed here), marks the long-forgotten CH80's return and now finds its way into the Carrera collection.

We'll get to the important bit soon, just let me go on a quick rant first. I see that the hyphen from Heuer-01 and Heuer-02 is now gone – even the Heuer-01 is now Heuer 01 on TAG Heuer's website. I, personally, got used to the hyphen, it just looks tidier; plus I really don't get these inexplicable changes in established product names. If I am still in possession of my sanity when we get to our TAG Heuer meeting at Baselworld, I'll ask why this had to happen. Moving on to something not just those with a developed phase of pedantry care about, the Heuer 02 is an entirely in-house designed and manufactured (I believe springs and jewels notwithstanding) automatic chronograph.

The Heuer 02 also offers 75 hours of power reserve. That, for some reason, is 5 hours down from the CH80 – another thing to ask the kind people at TAG about – but well into the range that offers the sort of comfort all modern luxury watch movements should provide, in my opinion. The Heuer 02 features an impressively low number of 168 components, something that should lower production and servicing costs – compare that to the 416 in the Grand Seiko SBGC001...

The 43mm wide case carries on TAG Heuer's modular construction where the lugs and the middle of the case are separate pieces, allowing for some mix-and-match to happen, as it does with the partially gold piece with the black PVD steel case band, black ceramic bezel, and 18k 5N rose gold lugs (this model wasn't included in the press kit, but low-resolution pictures of it can be found here). The case of every TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 02 is water-resistant to 100m, as it should be.
