Ahead of the Lunar New Year, Swiss luxury watchmaker Tag Heuer has created the Tag Heuer Carrera Chronograph Year of the Rabbit.
If you were born in the year of the rabbit – born in 1999, 1987, 1975for example – chances are you’re gentle, quiet, elegant, and alert as well as quick, skillful, kind, patient, and very responsible, although you might also be reluctant to reveal your minds to others and have a tendency to escape reality. Something else you might have in common is an attraction to the newest timepiece by Tag Heuer, which is dedicated to your Chinese Zodiac.
Limited to only 500 pieces, the brand’s stunning new black, red and golden chronograph is refined yet sporty and infused with delicate symbols of the cunning leporidae. The color red, present in subtle touches throughout the piece, represents luck, joy, passion and boldness since ancient times in China. Closely linked to the fire element, it is also the colour of choice to adorn the most revered spaces and possessions.
Based on the 44-mm TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph, the limited edition release features an elegant steel case, deep black ceramic fixed bezel with tachymeter scale echoing its racing origins, and, featuring a balanced tricompax layout, a never-seen-before black dial with printed lines representing a rabbit’s fur.
The chronograph sub-counters at 3 and 9 o’clock are azuré, with their structured concentric lines contrasting against the gentle waves of the background while the indexes and hours and minutes hands are 18K 5N rose gold plating and covered with sophisticated dark red lacquer.
The case back design, known only to the wearer, is fully customized to reveal a printed red rabbit figure centered on the sapphire glass. Around it are special engravings to indicate the watch’s limited release, “One of 500” and “Limited Edition”.
Within in the Calibre Heuer 02 movement, visible through the case back and which delivers great timekeeping precision and performance thanks to its vertical clutch and column wheel. With its 80-hour power reserve it is intended to support any thrilling lifestyle.
The watch features a strap in smooth black calfskin with contrasting beige stitching, and is presented in a special box in the same deep red colour as the watch, and lined with anthracite Alcantara.
