A Brief History of TAG Heuer Carrera

TAG Heuer Carrera was born out of a passion for precision and a love for the thrilling world of motorsports. In 1963, Jack Heuer, the great-grandson of the brand’s founder, designed the Carrera collection as a tribute to the legendary Carrera Panamericana race in Mexico. It was an immediate success, capturing the hearts of watch enthusiasts and drivers alike. The Carrera collection quickly became renowned for its innovative technology, elegant design, and unwavering durability.

Over the past six decades, TAG Heuer Carrera has reached countless milestones and witnessed many iconic moments in the world of watchmaking. From pioneering the first automatic chronograph movement, the Calibre 11, in 1969 to introducing groundbreaking advancements such as the Calibre 1887 and the Heuer-01 in recent years, Carrera has consistently pushed the boundaries of innovation.
