Tag Heuer Carrera GMT

The Heuer Carrera is one of the most classic expressions of the racing watch. One of Jack Heuer’s most heartfelt passion projects, the Carrera is imbued with a design ethos of functionality and legibility. For a watch designed in the late 1960s, the Carrera remains a stunner, proving the brilliance of Jack’s design philosophy.

The Carrera ran from the 1960s to the 1980s, shifting slightly as trends changed, taking on the cushion case and automatic movements of the late 1960s and 1970s. In the 1980s, after Heuer was bought by the TAG Group, the Carrera was discontinued. However, in the mid-1990s TAG Heuer realized that its classic designs still held value in the commercial market, and decided to re-release two watches: the Monaco and the Carrera. 

The Carrera was re-released in 18k gold with a white dial, stainless steel with a black dial, and stainless steel with a white dial. On the whole, the Carrera 1964 Re-Issue remained true to the look of its predecessor, with the 36mm case and the bold, open dial. While the earliest Carreras contained the Valjoux 72, the reissued references used the Lemania Caliber 1873, most famously used in the Omega Speedmaster. 

This particular watch, a Carrera GMT (Reference WS2113), was part of the original batch of reissues in the 1990s and differs from the others with a subtle addition of a GMT hand.

The Carrera 1964 Re-Issue is important in that it set a precedent for Tag Heuer to reissue its most classic designs. This old design, rather than languishing in the brand's archives, is exposed to a new generation of watch collectors. It's a testament to Jack Heuer's foresight that the Carrera, with its bold new look, remains popular and will continue to be for generations to come.
