Over the past 160 years, much has changed but the brand’s commitment to innovating and developing cutting-edge watchmaking creations has remained constant. One collection that is set to receive special attention this year is the TAG Heuer Carrera line, which features the brand’s most elegant chronographs: iconic timepieces since their introduction almost 60 years ago, and which have carried the brand’s racing heritage and daring spirit through the decades.
