At $16k the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T is the Tourbillion your wallet was waiting for

TAG Heuer has pulled out yet another surprise from its bag of tricks. Called the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T, this watch release closely follows the unveileing of the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-01, which showed up a handful of months ago. This COSC-certified automatic chronograph timepiece sports a titanium and carbon flying tourbillon and the watch is based on the CH-80 chronograph. The watch packs the automatic winding mechanism and the flying tourbillon in a 32 mm diameter case. This, however, hasn’t lead to a cramped appeal and the watch’s counters are well spaced and easy on the eye. The Carrera Heuer-02T wristwatch boasts of semi-skeletonized dials, with minute and hour counters at the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock mark.

The watch uses the new manufacture Calibre Heuer 02-T movement, beating at 28,000 vph. The watch will be made available in two versions, with the non-limited model with a price tag of $15,950, and the limited edition “Black Phantom” model priced at $23,100. The latter will be limited to just 250 pieces, making it a rare timepiece worth the attention of a watch collector. The TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T is water-resistant to 100 meters and will have a black rubber strap accompanying it.
