TAG Heuer is one of those brands that get a LOT of flack from the watch community for a variety of reasons, some justified and others are just blatant ignorance. This Carrera is a throw back to an older time of Heuer, this pre-dating the more modern “Heuer” re-editions TAG has done, it is also the precursor the new “Fragment” that they released.
This watch ticks a lot of boxes for the watchman or woman who is looking for a 39mm Chronograph with heritage styling and still from a powerhouse of a name! The great thing about this size of the watch is it is perfect on the wrist for almost everyone, not too small and not too large! The sweet spot, I wish more brands to do this size!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold with its original box and paperwork including its original guarantee card dating the original purchase to be June 2011. The watch was then purchased by Watchfinder in 2013 where it was serviced by them. Since then it has no service history. The watch also comes with 2 TAG Heuer leather straps and the original TAG Heuer bracelet. The watch is pre-owned and showing signs of wear, the chronograph runs flawlessly, however, the central chronograph hand is slightly off alignment.
I love this watch, I think the value for money is insane and any true watch fan can look at this and truly appreciate it for what it is! I do not doubt it’ll go to a good home!
