The new tag heuer grand carrera calibre 17 rs chronograph watch replica embodies TAG Heuer’s unique motor-racing heritage and passion for Avant-Garde design and technologies. Amongst its many premium features is the ingenious GT car engine-inspired Rotating System, making it possible to replace conventional hands by a disk displaying functional information even more clearly on the dial.
Combining timeless elegance with high-performance functionality and unprecedented readability, the coveted chronograph worn by F1 icons such as Joe Siffert, Jacky Ickx, Emerson Fittipaldi, Clay Ragazzoni, Mario Andretti, Carlos Reutemann, Jody Scheckter and Nicky Lauda later in the 1970s, embodied TAG Heuer’s unique combination of avant-garde design and technology. But the legendary Carrera wasn’t the first example of TAG Heuer drawing inspiration from motor racing.
In 1911, TAG Heuer introduced the “Time of Trip”, the first dashboard for sports cars. In 1933 with the “Autavia”, a name standing for Automobile-Aviation, TAG Heuer introduced a revolutionary dashboard it would manufacture for more than 30 years. In 1964, TAG Heuer unveiled the first tag heuer grand carrera chronograph calibre 17 rs replica mechanical chronograph, a stunning masterpiece inspired by professional motor racing’s most grueling road race, the legendary Carrera Panamericana.
First watch brand to develop dashboard chronographs for sports cars at the beginning of the 20th century, first watch brand to partner racing drivers, first watch brand to partner a Formula 1 team, first and only watch brand to crack and master all time barriers, creating luxurious chronographs precise to within 1/10th of a second as in the Link Calibre 36, 1/100th of a second like the Carrera Calibre 360 and the Link Calibre S, and 1/1,000th of a second for the Microtimer. With these three levels of precision, TAG Heuer has set an unprecedented record and demonstrates its high-octane motor-racing DNA more powerfully than any other watch brand.
The tag heuer grand carrera replica is a new premium collection of superlatively sophisticated timepieces inspired by the spirit of modern GT cars. Innovative and contemporary, its draws its DNA from the classic TAG Heuer Carrera collection born in 1964 and consistently reinterpreted ever since to become a TAG Heuer icon.
The goal was not to substitute the iconic tag heuer replica watches swiss, but to expand it into new watchmaking territories and technologies, bringing it more in line with contemporary motor-racing styling and performance in general, and GT cars in particular. The result is the new GT engine-inspired Rotating System, a breakthrough technology that marks a completely new way to display time, powered by a new generation of exclusive movements : the TAG Heuer Calibre RS movements encompassing several Calibres from the simple and timeless mechanical watch to complex mechanical chronographs.
