Behind the retro-style “glass box” domed sapphire crystal, also inspired by the original Heuer Carrera, the dial sports the emblematic Heuer logo and Carrera name.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Green Limited Edition features the Calibre Heuer 02 manufacture movement, which comprises This movement comprises 168 parts, including a column wheel and vertical clutch – a guarantee of outstanding chronometric performance. It also boasts an impressive 80-hour power reserve.
