When  luxury timepieces collide with high impact sports, a genuinely unparalleled sort of timepiece emerges. Enter the Tag Heuer Carrera collection, a constellation of automatic chronographs inspired by motor racing. The Carrera lookbook is chock full of genuine surprises, providing a series of timepieces that stand up to your most turbulent kinds of shock, offering dynamic elite performance while remaining faithful to a look that sets it apart from other sports watches.

These aren’t delicately wound or overly blinged, nor the understated watches one finds at a golf tournament. No, timepieces like the Calibre 6, the Calibre 18 and the Calibre Heuer 01 are alphas in a sea of betas.

The Calibre Heuer 01 rounds out a more muscular 45 mm that showcases a black titanium bezel and case, black skeleton dial and black rubber strap. Water resistant up to 100 meters, it retails for $5300.

TAGHeuer-INTERIORThe Calibre 6 and the Calibre 18 are much more svelte models of the Carrera line, clocking in at 39 mm. Both come with leather straps (blue and black, respectively) and silver dials. Polished steel case? Check. Polished dial? Check. Swiss made movement and water resistance up to 100 meters? Check and check.

These two options will transition more readily from your white knuckle sports to your high brow galas with their sleek, pristine look. All three boast a level of confidence and swagger that oozes from the Tag Heuer DNA.
