TAG Heuer Carrera Skipper chronograph in rose gold - Watches & Wonders 2024 #WatchesandWonders2024
By SENATUS Editor | 9 April 2024

First launched last year in steel with great aplomb, the TAG Heuer Carrera Skipper chronograph is now available in 18K 5N rose gold.

The timepiece is based on the best-selling ‘glassbox’ design launched in early 2023 to mark the 60th anniversary of the celebrated Carrera chronograph and is powered by the Heuer 02 (Ref. TH20-06) in-house calibre – a version of the Heuer 02 movement especially adapted for regatta timing.

Creating the 39mm case in 18K 5N rose gold, which combines fine brushed and polished finishes, elevates the Skipper to a level of sophistication that is sure to appeal to high-end collectors - but its usefulness as a fully-functional sailing watch remains uncompromised.

Like other variations of the glassbox Carrera – such as the Carrera Chronosprint x Porsche, the Carrera Tourbillon, and the Carrera Chronograph - the gold Skipper features an ingenious ‘curved flange’ dial beneath its crystal to ensure exceptional legibility in all conditions, especially when the watch is being used in a regatta situation for timing the vital 15-minute period before the starting gun is fired.

In terms of its colour scheme, the Skipper in gold harks back to the historic Skipper Reference 7754 of 1968 by combining a sea-blue main dial with two, sharply contrasting subdial – a 12-hour counter in ‘Intrepid Teal’ and a 15-minute regatta counter divided into three, five–minute segments of different colours.

The 18K 5N rose gold Skipper is supplied on a blue textile strap and secured by a pin buckle, also made from 18K 5N rose gold to match the case.
