The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche Orange Racing is based on the famous TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph and follows the TAG Heuer Carrera x Porsche Limited Edition.

It upholds the quality and performance offered by the in-house Calibre Heuer 02, a movement manufactured entirely at TAG Heuer’s Chevenez facility and consisting of 168 parts, including a column wheel and a vertical clutch. These features allow for exceptional chronometric performance and offer an impressive power reserve of 80 hours.

The design of the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Porsche Orange Racing keeps with the unmistakable Porsche aesthetic but also, most importantly, the racing universe that surrounds it. The vibrant orange colour can be found throughout the watch, inspired by the colour of the heat sparks made by the car on the asphalt. It also nods to the colour of fire, an emblematic symbol

of speed. This orange colour can be seen on the Porsche logo on the bezel, as well as on the lacquer on the crown and the graphic details present in small touches on the dial, with “azuré” counters and an orange seconds hand.

Another key colour in this special edition is black, which elegantly reinforces the brightness of the orange by contrast. To create this harmonious finish with tasteful touches of colour, the TAG Heuer designers have used black in various textures and finishings.
