TAG Heur launched a new in-house movement in its new Carrera Heuer 02. The watch is being released as the brand's pre-Baselworld 2018 reveal, which all feature the brand's new movement with hit chronograph designs. The TAG Heur Carrera Heur 02 features an exclusive 43mm case, except for the GMT version, which uses a 45mm case. The Heur 02 replaces the Heur 01 -- which was based off the Seiko cal. 6S37 -- and unlike its predecessor was created with in-house design and was built at TAG Heuer’s facility at Chevenez.

The Carrera Heuer 02 uses an open worked dial and mechanical elements, which are TAG Heur design elements. The modular construction of TAG Heur is seen in this watch, giving users the ability to mix and match the lugs and middle of the case. The timepiece is powered with a self-winding 75-hour power reserve and features a low number of 168 components. The lower component count was done to keep production costs down and make serviceability a breeze.
