While they’re most certainly best known for their automotive-related timepieces that came out in the last half-century or so, the watchmakers at TAG Heuer have actually been in business for a whopping 160 years. And now, to celebrate that jaw-dropping milestone, they’re reviving and updating an iconic 1964 chronograph watch in the form of the TAG Heuer Carrera 160 Years Silver Limited Edition.
Limited to only 1,860 examples in total, this redux shares plenty of styling details with its decades-old predecessor — including its distinctive monochrome silver dial and stainless steel case. However, it also has some noteworthy alterations. That includes the addition of a brand-new Manufacture Calibre Heuer 02 movement with its 80-hour power reserve, a slightly larger 39mm case (up from 36), a domed sapphire crystal, and a beautiful alligator leather strap rather than a perforated racing-styled one. The Carrera 160 Years Silver Limited Edition will be available starting in June of 2020.
