LVMH WATCH WEEK: TAG Heuer 2022 novelties overview

Ricardo Sime

Editor’s Note: We get that this LVMH Watch Week there is a ton of ground to cover, with four brands all releasing a range of novelties to kick off the year. So, for your convenience, we’re offering a quick overview of each brand’s new novelties – touching on each new reference or collection and their headlining points. Stay tuned throughout the week for deeper coverage, some of which will include live pics and our hands-on perspective. But for now let’s run through each of the new watches – here are the TAG Heuer 2022 novelties of LVMH Watch Week.

 

TAG Heuer Autavia 60th Anniversary COSC Flyback Chronographs

The Monaco and the Carrera are two chronographs that often get the most limelight when we think TAG Heuer. But the Autavia is one of the brand’s most storied collections. Yes, it gets lost sometimes with all the noise made by the Monaco and Carrera, but with this latest release in celebration of the Autavia 60th anniversary, it’s going to be hard to lose sight of this line any longer. TAG Heuer has blessed us with a set of yin and yang COSC-certified Flyback Chronographs in honor of the significant birthday. Both are 42mm in diameter, and 15.68mm thick, but one has a blackened stainless-steel case and black dial with stealth appeal, and the other a classic and timeless silver panda dial in a standard stainless-steel case. Stay tuned for our video and written hands-on reviews later in the week.

TAG Heuer Autavia 60th Anniversary – The GMT

To round out the 60th Anniversary collection, TAG Heuer has also introduced a GMT watch to the Autavia line. The TAG Heuer Autavia COSC GMT presents in the classic black and blue colour scheme. At first glance, one may assume TAG Heuer just swapped the bezel on their older blue dial Autavia. Yet, this isn’t the case. This new version of the dial really brings home the whole design. It’s classic and casual with just enough dressiness to set this watch up as a nice daily wearer in the collection of anyone looking for a GMT.
