Tag Heuer Reveals Revamped ‘Panda Dial’ Carrera Chronograph
Only 125 of the limited-edition Pandas are available.
When a silhouette is a design icon in its own right, it makes it easy to mine that illustrious past for new inspiration, as is the case with a rebooted take on the Tag Heuer Carrera from the timepiece masters at Watches Of Switzerland.
The company partnered with the famed watchmaker to bring back the two-tone ‘panda dial’ Carrera, a style popularized in the 1970s as the sporty-yet-sleek, dressy-yet-functional timepiece rose to prominence.
The refined, subtle watch features design cues that have made other limited-editions of the Tag Heuer Carrera so successful as of late, including a textured racing strap and the company’s in-house calibre 02 automatic movement.
The star of the show is the striking dial design set on a nicely sized 42mm case, which boasts a black chapter ring and two black sub-dials for precise timekeeping on the road (or anywhere on the planet, for that matter).
The crisp watch also comes with a durable stainless steel band, but it’s the perforated black leather strap that calls to mind so many other classic iterations of the Carrera.
The movement is visible through the caseback itself, and a date window on the dial sits striking at the 6’o-clock spot. As with other takes on the Carrera, the dial forgoes hour numerals for an especially streamlined look.
The watch is an exercise in speed, sharp design and subtle style at its finest, with the price tag to prove it: The newest version of the Tag Heuer Carrera starts at $6,350.
It’s even more exclusive than its price tag indicates, with just 125 limited-edition timepieces hitting the market.
Shop accordingly to secure a stylish new chapter in the storied history of the Tag Heuer Carrera.
