When the Carrera Heuer 02T was introduced to the world at the prestigious Baselworld in 2016, it would quickly become synonymous with its self-winding chronograph movement complete with a flying tourbillon. Five years on and Swiss luxury watchmaker TAG Heuer introduces its latest iteration, one that enmeshes the worlds of the Carrera Sport and Tourbillon. And while the debut model sported hues of gold, its successor is a sight to behold in a rich, blue hue – complete with a titanium make.
First things first, the model's unique feature is undoubtedly its blue star-bust dial. The pop of cerulean colour also presents itself throughout the timepiece – such as on its bezel, the crown, the tourbillon cage and even the rubber coating that encases its push buttons. Taking the timepiece's new look full circle, however, is its momentous swapping out of its alligator straps. In its place is a titanium grade 5 H-shape bracelet, accompanied with a clasp – a feature seen on the model for the very first time.
