Here we have a 2017 TAG Heuer Carrera Caliber 6, a contemporary nod to the Heuer watches of the 1960s with a 38.5mm polished stainless steel case, a subtle curve of the case leads to twisted tapered lugs, a lug-to-lug length of 46mm and a case thickness of 11.5mm gives the watch an impressive wrist presence. On the right side, is a signed crown. A smooth-stepped polished bezel holds a bevel-edged sapphire crystal above a sunburst silver dial, a raised blue 60-minute chapter ring surrounds applied steel baton indexes with chamfered edges marking the hours, at 6 o’clock a blue sub-seconds with a red hand and a date window, a nice contrast to the silver dial. Slender sword hands infilled with luminance complete this contemporary sports watch. At 12 o’clock we have the HEUER motif, a nod to its heritage “Carrera Chronometer”, and at 6 o’clock “Cal 6” was printed inside the sub-dial. On the reverse a screw-down case back with a red “HEUER” motif engraved in its centre, inside an automatic TAG Heuer Cal. 6, 27 jewels, beating at 28,800 beats per hour, the movement has a base of the ETA 2895-2. The watch comes fitted with a 19mm black sports-style strap with a signed double folding clasp and the watch comes with its TAG HEUER presentation box and paperwork.
This is a fantastic reference by TAG Heuer and really captures the vintage charm of a Carrera whilst bringing modern design and standards to the table, plus at 38.5mm it is a perfect middle ground for everyone and would suit most wrists. Then we come to value, in my mind this is a great value-for-money purchase from a brand that is, unfortunately, often over looked by collectors.

Featuring many models and configurations, expanding the possibilities to the full. In 1958 Jack Heuer, Edouard’s son, joined the company. In 1962 the first generation of Autavia was launched.
