2023 Geneva Watch Fair “Watches and Miracles”: At the 60th anniversary of the birth of TAG Heuer Carrera, at this year’s Geneva “Watches and Miracles” Haute Horlogerie Fair, the brand brought us a new TH20-09 tourbillon self-made movement.

The birth of the Carrera series is closely related to racing: Carrera Panamericana was held five times in the early 1950s. This race full of speed, passion and romance deeply inspired the brand. The word “Carrera” has multiple meanings: “race”, “career” or simply “road”.
The first Carrera chronograph was released in 1963. The design of this watch was carefully considered and clearly expressed the philosophy of Jack Heuer, the brand CEO at the time. On the one hand, it serves as a tool, built with practicality and functionality in mind. Therefore, its design is simple and easy to read, without superfluous embellishments, and will never distract the wearer. On the other hand, it is also modern and innovative.
The pure, simple and practical, but also beautiful design has made the Carrera series enduring for 60 years and has become the brand’s favorite choice. To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the TAG Heuer Carrera collection, TAG Heuer’s designers and watchmakers have recreated and enhanced the shape of the new product, with an eye toward continuing its legacy in its seventh decade.
The watch follows the same design principles as other works in the series and has a consistent basic shape. Only a small hole is opened at the 6 o’clock position of the dial to display a tourbillon frame. 42mm stainless steel case, signature Carrera blue dial with ring-brushed finish and blue calfskin strap. The back of the sapphire case shows the TH20-09 movement, which is the finishing touch.
Every part of the watch has been carefully crafted to reflect the mechanical beauty of the tourbillon. Thanks to the curved sapphire crystal and smooth contours of the new Carrera series Glassbox, the beauty of the tourbillon can be appreciated from a wider perspective. The outer edge of the dial and the hour markers are slightly curved, which complement and complement each other with the edge of the mirror, enhancing the elegant texture of the watch.
The dark ‘azuré’ sub-dials are surrounded by a high-contrast silver ring, making the chronograph readings easy to read. The minute scale surrounds the outer edge of the dial, and fire orange details adorn each hour markers. The central chronograph second hand is a clean and neat triangle, which is inspired by the racing dashboard of the 1960s, adding an almost nostalgic style to the watch.
The TH20-09 movement is a self-made movement, the automatic rotor can be wound in both directions, and the power reserve is 65 hours. The movement is certified by the Swiss Observatory (COSC) and also has a timing function. It is worth mentioning that this is currently one of the few tourbillon movements certified by COSC. The TH20-09 tourbillon movement was developed by Carole Forestier, TAG Heuer’s movement director, and the brand’s technical team, which has been improved in terms of efficiency, precision, and finishing technology.http://www.wristclone.ru/
