TAG Heuer is welcoming the upcoming Year of the Dragon with an unveiling of a limited edition pair of Carrera Chronographs, each capturing elements from the Chinese culture, and the dragon which symbolises power, luck, and prosperity.
The first is a steel version which features a sunray-brushed silver dial. The second is a gold version with a sunray-brushed 18K 5N pink gold-plated dial.
Both are adorned with rhodium-plated and 18K 5N pink gold plated indexes accentuated by a sumptuous red lacquer creating a harmonious blend. The distinct red “azuré” subdials at 3 and 9 o’clock add a captivating contrast with the dial, accentuating the iconic reverse panda design of the timepiece.
A central red lacquered hand centers the dial, with a calligraphic dragon character at 6 o’clock.
On the caseback is a printed Chinese Dragon figure on the sapphire glass. Around it, are special engravings to indicate the watch’s limited release, “Limited Edition” along “One of 300” for the steel version and “One of 50” for the more exclusive 18K 5N pink gold version.
In addition, the watch’s movement, the Calibre Heuer 02, is visible through the open caseback. Developed and produced in-house by TAG Heuer, it offers great timekeeping precision and performance thanks to its vertical clutch and column wheel, and offers an 80-hour power reserve.
An alligator leather strap in an elegant red complements the steel and 18K 5N pink gold cases’, enhancing the watch’s sophisticated and racing allure.
A special box was imagined to house this exceptional TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph, Year of the Dragon, in the same profound red colour as the watch, and elevated with the Chinese Dragon symbol in an elegant beige.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph, Year of the Dragon, is available exclusively in TAG Heuer boutiques, on its website for select countries, as well as at select retail partners.
