TAG Heuer - Carrera Heuer-01 Full Black Matt Ceramic

| 2 Comments
TAG Heuer unveiled the Carrera Heuer-01 Full Black Matt Ceramic, its very first men's chronograph made entirely from ceramic, including the bracelet.


Introduced at Baselwordl 2015, the Carrera Heuer-01 became the cornerstone of an entire new collection characterised by a bold new design, a new in-house calibre, and a new modular case design with 12 different elements enabling multiple combinations of materials and colours.

In the latest iteration of the model, the case, bezel, lugs and case middle are made from black ceramic, a material offering exceptional scratch-resistance. Incredibly hard but soft to the touch, ceramic also maintains its original colour over time and does not oxidise. Moreover, it is hypoallergenic and lighter than steel.


Black ceramic is used also for the bracelet with H-shaped links and matt finishes. The folding buckle is made in steel and coated with black titanium carbide, with double push-piece safety mechanism.


To guarantee perfect water resistance to 100 metres / 330 feet, steel is still used on all the functional parts of the watch (inner box section, screw-down case back, push-pieces etc.) to enable the gaskets (crystal gasket, case-back gaskets, push-piece gaskets and crown tube) to perform their function.

The skeleton dial made from black ceramic has 3 counters with black snailed ring: chronograph minute at 12 o'clock, chronograph hour at 6 o'clock and small second  at 9 o'clock.


Like the hour and minute hands, the satin-finished and polished hand-applied indices are treated with luminescent black markers.

The visible skeleton date disc allows to read the current date in the small window at 3:30.

The 45 mm case houses the 4 Hz (28,800 vph) Calibre Heuer-01 manufacture movement whose red column wheel and skeleton oscillating weight are visible through the transparent case back. Guaranteed power reserve is 50 hours.


The price of the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-01 Full Black Matt Ceramic (Ref. CAR2A91.BH0742) will be around Euro 6,000 / US$ 7,000. tagheuer.com
