TAG Heuer’s Grand Carrera range is inspired by the design of GT race car engines. This TAG Heuer Grand Carrera model combines sleek design and a signature element common to the Grand Carrera range, the TAG Heuer Rotating System. Not only does it offer a unique aesthetic appeal, but it also offers higher legibility than a dial.
The Rotating System uses dashboard style discs, with a second time zone at the 6 o'clock mark. A large date window is placed at the 12 o'clock mark. From the sapphire crystal caseback, you can admire the movement of the timepiece. The Tag Heuer Grand Carrera WAV5152.FC6231 is not a conventional Carrera watch at all. For one, it is not overtly masculine with its use of dark colors for contrast. However, the brown leather strap successfully blends with the color scheme to add a bit of masculine depth to the design. The dominant and defining color of the Grand Carrera is rose gold. Clearly, it is meant for a man willing to experiment with his color choices. That said the combination of the luminescent rose gold and silver dial is a refreshing change from most men's watches. The Grand Carrera's design, in combination with its rich brown leather bracelet and fine-brushed/polished steel case makes it an excellent accessory for formal and semi-formal wear.
An oversized screw-in crown enables the watch to offer water-resistance of 330 feet. The movement is the TAG Heuer Calibre 8 RS with 21 rubies. It ticks at a balance frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, and offers an approximate power reserve of 42 hours. Double anti-reflection treatment on the anti-scratch sapphire crystal ensures that the watch doesn't reflect light and lets you see the time easily.
The launch of the Grand Carrera series in 2007 marked a crucial turning point for TAG Heuer as they had to overcome the difficult task of reaching out to a new segment of older buyers, many of whom had never owner a watch by the brand before. TAG Heuer met this challenge with an undaunted spirit and went on to position the Grand Carrera as one of the world’s leading high-end watch collections. The Grand Carrera range is a premium design series combining many bestselling features to give watches that are extensive in functionality and outstanding in aesthetics.
Signature aesthetic elements comprise a hand applied logo, applied hour markers, rotating system disc, extensive Cotes de Genève finishing, double Sapphire case back and a double-crown. Each model in the series is available in a stainless steel bracelet, rubber strap or a crocodile leather strap. The standout design element of this series is the Rotating System (RS) disc used in all the models. The discs replace the traditional sub-dials. These discs have been elaborately decorated with semi-circular polished frames and impart the collection with a unique touch.
The Grand Carrera is the only one of TAG Heuer’s watches that is not available as a quartz version. All the models are automatic and their automatic movements have been COSC (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres) certified to guarantee precision and durability.
