There are some wristwatches, as we like to say, that need no introduction, and the legendary TAG Heuer Carrera belongs in this lofty pantheon. From the race tracks of the 1960s onto the wrists and into the watch collections of enthusiasts and stylish men everywhere, the Carrera’s legacy lives on as a refined sport watch to be worn with pride and accessible luxury in mind. So, why improve something that’s already darn near perfect? It’s just the TAG Heuer way, after all, and things actually do get even better with the TAG Heuer Carrera “Dato” Limited Edition Watch for Hodinkee.
It’s certainly the kind of limited-edition watch you’d expect to unearth via the watch experts at Hodinkee, and it’s an incredibly fitting homage to Jack Heuer (the great-grandson of the company’s founder and the last family member to run the legendary company). How does this Carrerra Dato harken back to classic timepieces?
It’s an homage to the first Carrera timepiece with a rotating date wheel display, and in this case, it stands out handsomely against a black dial (black as in “noir,” a nod to the 1960s Carrera Dato ref. 3147N). A piece of wearable history updated for today’s modern man? Put that on your wish list ASAP.
