Tag Heuer Carrera Heritage timepieces are inspired by the iconic racing model from 1964. They present the beautiful interpretation of vintage components - a extremely polished case, striking hour numerals and a nicely developed black dial, with a "flinque" effect. It functions three chronograph sub-dials: the 30 minutes counter is at the 12 o'clock position, the 12 hours counter requires the 6 o'clock position, whilst the little seconds sub-dials is situated in the 9 o'clock position. A date window is in the six o'clock position.

A fixed bezel can also be made of steel and it is highly polished. Curved, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective therapy covers each sides of the case. This makes the caseback transparent, which allows you to get pleasure from the open view around the Calibre 16 self-winding mechanism.
