Carrera Calibre 1887

2010.03.19

 

The 1887 movement, engineered in-house to ensure Tag Heuer’s successful future, deserved an iconic timepiece design.

 

 

In designing for Tag Heuer’s future, we delved into the origins of the Carrera for inspiration. Informed by the 1964 Heuer Carrera’s intentional simplisticity and highly readable dial, this became our intention for the new Carrera 1887 by Christoph Behling Design.

 

 

Several prototypes were developed and optimised to create the precise balance between the face, the indexes and the counters. Removing the tachymeter from the bezel, making the dial more open, applying counter rings for subtle refinement; with each iteration, we strived to achieve a purity unseen in the current Carrera collection.
