Celebrating 60 years of existence, this TAG Heuer Carrera revives the highly sought-after Glassbox 2447 SN model, famed for its iconic panda dial. The two black “azuré” subdials match the luxurious black calfskin leather strap of this 39mm watch, epitomizing the Carrera’s timeless design. Limited to 600 watches.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph 60th Anniversary fires up the ignition ahead of a year of Carrera 60th Anniversary celebrations. Limited to 600 pieces, it’s a faithful reinterpretation of the Carrera 2447 SN.
The colourways are lifted directly from vintage to new, including the black stripes down the central hands and hour markers, the double stops at 12, and of course the black counters with high-contrast white markings.
The vintage Heuer logo is in place, too, with the name Carrera above it on a silver sunray-brushed dial. Even the counter at 6 carries over the word ‘Swiss’, marking the watch’s Swiss Made status. In a game of spot the difference, some observers will note the 60-minute and 12-hour counters are reversed, as well as the subtraction of the T from the dial which designated radioactive tritium on the original watch. This has been replaced with contemporary Super-LumiNova on the new model.
