The brand has released a fashionable version of its Carrera model that will attract both sports-oriented city-dwellers and globetrotters with its second time zone.

For 55 years, Carrera has been measuring split-time measurements using a high accuracy mechanism. This year, at the official presentation of the new Heuer 2 calibre at Baselworld, TAG Heuer unveiled a new version of its legendary watch to attract a generation that jumps on a plane just as easily as their elders got on a train. Its strong point? A combination of practical daily complications. So alongside the chronograph function of the original model, the Carrera Chronograph GMT also displays a second time zone. This is the first model since 1963 to have this feature, with a 24-hour GMT scale located on a bi-coloured black and blue ceramic bezel. A lacquered red hand with a triangular tip coated with white Super-LumiNova® points towards the figures around the disc. For greater ease of use, the hand can be adjusted using the crown.
