When a company decides to create a watch in honor of a certain personality, it has to make sure that the result captures the essence of the man or woman to whom it is dedicated. Well, TAG Heuer managed to go through this process with excellence when they designed the Jack Heuer Edition Carrera Caliber 1887 Chronograph, which brings ode to the Honorary Chairman of the company, Jack Heuer himself.
This stunning timepiece was inspired in its design by the two-part stopwatches that Jack used during pro racing circuit events. That being said, the overall look of the watch includes some vintage elements here and there, but rest assured the intricate mechanisms that can be found within are as cutting edge as they can get. Moreover, the company used only high quality materials in the manufacturing process of this masterpiece, including a mix of titanium and steel for the 45mm case as well as titanium carbide coating for the fixed black bezel.
The two-part dial was made using an inner silvery dial complemented by an outer anthracite one, both featuring an exquisite sun burnt finish for a hint of elegance and sophistication. For a touch of exclusivity, the smoked sapphire caseback boasts the coat of arms and the signature of Jack Heuer while allowing the user to peek into the workings of the complex Calibre 1887 movement and its 39 jewels.
With its stunning looks, outstanding performance and rich heritage, the Carrera Calibre 1887 Jack Heuer Edition Watch is without a doubt one of the most incredible timepieces in existence.
