TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche 963: A Modern Racing Tribute

2024-06-14 // LePodium.NET
Introducing the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche 963, a bold and contemporary tribute to the iconic endurance race.

An ultra-modern twist on the classic Carrera Chronograph, TAG Heuer has released a new version of its racing watch in collaboration with Porsche. Dubbed the Carrera Chronograph x Porsche 963, this timepiece pays homage to the upcoming 24-hour race, 24h of Le Mans, with its sleek and sporty design.

The Carrera line has always been associated with motorsport, and this collaboration further solidifies its connection to racing. The large and angular case of the Carrera Chronograph x Porsche 963 gives it a bold and contemporary look. The openworked dial adds to its modern appeal, with its intricate design inspired by the structure of Porsche's racing car chassis.

The case of this timepiece is made of stainless steel, with recessed sides and a black PVD-coated surface. The left side features a signature Porsche emblem, while the right side has a black coated crown and pushers. The fixed bezel is crafted from forged carbon and features a luminescent Porsche logo. The Carrera lugs are present, with a central link engraved with "963," a nod to the endurance race.

The dial of the Carrera Chronograph x Porsche 963 is openworked, showcasing the intricate movement underneath. The white Super-LumiNova block indexes provide visibility in low light conditions, and the chronograph hands have red accents for a touch of sportiness. The date revealer is coated with Super-LumiNova as well, ensuring legibility even during the race at night.

This timepiece is powered by the in-house calibre TH20-00, also known as the Heuer-02 movement. It features a column-wheel and vertical clutch architecture, ensuring a smooth start of the chronograph function. With a power reserve of 80 hours, this watch is both reliable and practical for a 24-hour race.

The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche 963 is a limited edition timepiece, with only 963 individually numbered pieces available. It comes with a black integrated rubber strap and is delivered in a Porsche-styled packaging, complete with a travel pouch.

Prepare to experience the thrill of the race with the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche 963, a modern and daring tribute to the world of endurance racing.
