Carrera TAG Heuer Calibre 17 Chronograph Special Editions: reserved for shops

While last year, in 2013, the famous watch Carrera from TAG Heuer celebrated its 50 years, the attractive man in his fifties was apparent in two limited series (reserved for the brand shops) in its version Carrera Calibre 17 chronograph (41 mm, steel), which also paid tribute to the 80 years of Jack Heuer, its creator.

This chronograph history dates back to the 1960s... And more specifically, in 1963! It is indeed this year that Jack Heuer, man to the origin of some of the most revolutionary in sports timing advances, focused on the specific needs of race drivers professionals.

Avid race car and himself practicing in her hours, Jack Heuer knew exactly what he was looking for: a dial by large easy to read Replica watch; a housing waterproof and shock-resistant, strong enough to withstand the heaviest use.

He was also under the eyes the ideal source of inspiration: the "Carrera panamericana", a Mexican racing endurance rally-considered the most demanding of the world. Over the five decades that followed this chrono underwent countless versions and variants...

The declension of the model celebrating the 80th anniversary of Jack Heuer - Carrera Calibre 17 chronograph - drawn in 2012 by Jack Heuer in person has emerged at the end of 2013 in editions special shops. In the program, inevitably a classic format of 41 mm in diameter, a wide-open clean dial and certified self-winding COSC to two meters located at 3 h 00 and 9 h 00 that recall the time style.

These two editions are special shops TAG Heuer also variants of colors on the dials: meters and silver gray flange on anthracite grey background, in contrast to the elder, for one; blue silver gray background for the other counters and flange (our favorite version). There is also the Red keys that echo the vintage Heuer logo printed not only on the face but also on the bottom of the housing. The bracelets are perforated blue leather or leather perforated black and red lining. As any wrist watch driver self-respecting!

On the occasion of the the six Nations 2014 rugby tournaments, the Swiss watch brand Tissot has presented a racetrack version of its iconic T - Touch II Titanium Special Edition RBS 6 Nations 2014 final. A technical hublot big bang replica watch that does not fear shock. With this innovation, Tissot pays tribute to its partnership with the RBS 6 Nations tournament.

The style of this Tissot T-Touch II Titanium Special Edition RBS 6 Nations 2014, mixing beautifully matte gray of the titanium to the bright red of the index and the bracelet, reflects the dynamism and passion for sport which anime Tissot (many disciplines partner) and the players in this tournament.

Another common point between this model and the discipline to which he pays homage, with button, key phase of the game and here, a gesture of absolute simplicity to access the range of capabilities of the Watch: compass, thermometer, Chronograph, dual time zone, two alarms, backlight and perpetual calendar! What in fact the watch ideal sports adventurer.

The watch is also equipped with a seal to a pressure of 10 bar (100 m/330 ft). For absolute comfort and great resistance, this timepiece is mounted on a red silicone strap him too, like indexes and by by Superluminova numerals on the dial. The bottom of this special edition box is it adorned with the logo of the RBS 6 Nations tournament.

Alpina continues the development of its model 'pilot', with the arrival this year of the Startimer pilot Chronograph Black Star. A chrono bicompax equipped with a mechanical automatic calibre integrated into a beautiful black 44mm in diameter covered by PVD steel case. Successful landing.

Generous in size with its 44 mm in diameter, black PVD coated steel watch case fits perfectly with the anthracite of the Sunray dial. The image of a dashboard, it ensures optimal visibility thanks to its large needles and its towering figures Arabs, all, luminescent for perfect readability even in reduced lighting conditions.

Available bicompax counters 30 minutes to 3 hours and 60 seconds at 9 o'clock enhances browsing and precise data. Important in flight. Also note the second hand sealed of the iconic red Alpina triangle that points to a timer placed on the flange.
