Additional Info: The Grand Carrera collection presents several new models, paying homage to the original 1964 Carrera design, advancing it with a breakthrough complication called the TAG Heuer Calibre RS movement. The new RS movement marks a new method of time display. The indicators of this exclusive, GT engine-inspired rotating system enable wearers to read the chronograph time effortlessly, providing them with at-a-glance access to precision timing. This model hosts 'Cotes de Geneve' screw and polished beveled edges. It is complimented by curved, faceted horns on both case sides, a curved, sapphire crystal with double anti-reflective treatment and a double sapphire crystal case back. The dials feature a hand-applied TAG Heuer logo and curved faceted markers. Oversized screw-in crown and push-button clasps complete the sophisticated look of the piece which is also water resistant to 100 meters.
The entire Grande Carrera RS series is certified with the Controle Officiel Suisse des Chronometres (COSC).
The dial of the Caliber 17 RS is equipped with two rotating systems with Cotes de Geneve treatments and diamond polished facets: seconds at 3; chronograph minutes at 9
The case is made of Titanium Grade 2 (Ti2), a pure hypoallergenic metal that offers three times more resistance than steel but which is twice as light.
The red of the seconds hand, echoed on the crown, in the stitching and on the back of the strap, is the crowning achievement in aesthetics dedicated to ultimate performance.
