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.

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.
