We’re calling it: these are the best two vintage Carrera re-issues since the real thing. But which one is your favourite? And are you going to pull the trigger?Zach Blass
We’ve all likely seen these two glorious new Carrera references by now, but there are two hot questions remaining. Do you like either or both enough to pull the trigger? Because we have it on good authority that they’re just about done. You can pick them both up here until they’re gone. The second question is, which, in the end, is your favourite?
TAG Heuer celebrate their 160th anniversary with two limited edition chronographs that each celebrate the essence of the brand in their own way. The TAG Heuer Carrera 160 Years Silver Limited Edition and the TAG Heuer Carrera 160 Years Montreal Limited Edition. The Carrera chronograph line has been a staple of the racing chronograph category, with drivers and automotive enthusiasts everywhere touting them on their wrists. These stainless steel chronographs present fans of the brand with two great options to choose from. Some may even opt to add both to their collections, with each being such solid entries into the collection that many will wish the TAG Heuer Carrera 160 Years Anniversary models were standard production.
They are both housed in 39mm cases, a nice compromise between modern and classic sizing, with sharp angular lugs that taper down around the wrist. While both pay direct homage to the brand’s heritage, utilising a case that is almost 1:1 with the Carrera 2447 in profile, the Silver edition maintains an aesthetic of the past while the Montreal limited edition looks to the future with bold splashes of colour – without forgetting where it came from.
