The Tag Heuer Carrera line of watches is impressive enough in its own right, and it’s difficult to improve upon an already-classic design, is it not? That’s precisely what the legendary watch is doing with the launch of the Tag Heuer Carrera Red Dial Limited Edition, and the results couldn’t be cooler or more stylish.
The watch brand worn by Ryan Gosling always seems to have a few tricks up its sleeve (or rather, on wrist), and the brand notes that the bold color scheme “breathes new energy into the heritage-inspired design” of the Carrera.
The silhouette, which debuted in 1963, has been improved upon and scaled up in a few crucial ways, starting with the 39mm case diameter and signature lugs and pushers in a nod to the Carrera reference 2447.
The tri-compax layout is another brand signature, this time done up in a sleek, smooth red colorway that’s been part of the brand in ways both subtle and stylish over the years (just check out the Tag Heuer logo, after all).
The newest Tag Heuer Carrera features hours, minutes and a permanent seconds counter on the crisp, flashy-yet-refined dial, and is presented on a dressy black alligator leather strap for style that works on an off the road.
Each new Tag Heuer Carrera is worthy of any collection of luxury watches — only 600 units of this covetable timepiece are on the market as of today, available at Tag Heuer boutiques and online.
To mark the occasion, each watch is fittingly adorned and engraved with the phrases “ONE OF 600” and “Limited Edition.”
It’s a nice reminder that watches like the Tag Heuer Carrera don’t come around all that often, so you’d do well to get one on your wrist ASAP — we have a feeling one Mr. Ryan Gosling would approve.
