This TAG Heuer Carrera timepiece is a new limited-edition accessory created by the brand as a watch that celebrates the iconic original in a demure manner. The reissued 2447S timepiece celebrates the 160th anniversary of the watch model, but has been expertly updated with a number of accents to make it a model all its own. This includes a slightly larger casing, a domed sapphire glass and a case shape that's marginally different from the original to give it a bit of modernized styling.
The TAG Heuer Carrera timepiece is finished with a black leather alligator strap and limited to just 1,860 examples each priced at $6,450 each. The watch identifies the maintained popularity of classic timepiece styles, despite the rise in adoption rates of smartwatches and other wearables.
