TAG Heuer: Carrera Calibre CH 80

Codenamed 1969 at the time of its launch in November 2013, TAG Heuer has christened its new calibre CH 80 in honour of the brand's Chevenez site where it is made, and its 80 hours of power reserve. The 3-6-9 subdial configuration is joined by a date aperture and a high level of finish: Côtes de Genève and snailing on the blackened tungsten oscillating weight; nickel-plated minutes and gear-train bridges revealing finely bevelled and polished angles. The escapement parts and four-spoke balance are by Swiss manufacturer Atokalpa.
