Is there any car cooler than a Porsche Carrera? The brand name “Carrera” goes as far back as 1963 – The name commemorates the company’s success in the Carrera Panamericana race. The official partnership between the TAG Heuer watch brand and the Porsche sports car manufacturer was, therefore, a natural choice. These two companies have been linked by a strong friendship with common history, stories and, above all, values for years.
The latest incarnation of this sporty watch can be viewed in beautiful detail on the official website at https://www.tagheuer.com/us/en/timepieces/collections/tag-heuer-carrera/44-mm-calibre-heuer02-automatic/CBN2A1F.FC6492.html. There, the brand explains “An authentic alliance between two icons of design, quality, and innovation, teamed up to craft this TAG Heuer Carrera Porsche Chronograph special edition. A sporty design full of references to two of the world’s favorite and most dynamic luxury brands, upholding both names’ excellence without diluting the essence of either, with proud red highlights and the manufacture Heuer 02 movement beating away inside.”

With its Heuer 02 manufacture movement, with an impressive 80-hour power reserve, and the famous steering wheel Porsche-inspired oscillating mass, the watch proudly pursues the legacy of motor racing of two of the world’s favorite and most dynamic luxury brands.
The media buzz, not surprisingly, has been incredible. Hypebeast writes, for example, “The celebratory timepiece is a remake of a late ’60s Carrera model, the Glassbox 2447 SN. Leading the charge is a signature 39mm silver sunray brushed dial alongside contrasted black subdials, which creates the “panda” style. Additionally, the watch includes a black leather strap, a vintage TAG Heuer logo and is powered by a HEUER02 automatic movement” (https://hypebeast.com/2023/1/tag-heuer-carrera-60th-anniversary-watch). Luxuo writes, “In its presentation for the Carrera Chronograph 60th Anniversary Edition, TAG Heuer plays up the legibility focus of the original design. We also know from TAG Heuer Creative Director Guy Bove that the brand works hard to hew close to that legibility focus, and this 60th Anniversary Edition reflects that by referencing the 2447 SN model of the late 1960s (as opposed to the actual first Carrera, because that was a manual-winder, but you may recall that reference 2447 SN was in production from 1963). ” (https://www.luxuo.com/style/watches/tag-heuer-carrera-chronograph-60th-anniversary-edition.html).
Finding Best-in-class TAG Heuer Repair in New York, NY
We don’t necessarily own a Porsche Carrera, as here in New York City, the Subway (https://new.mta.info/) is often faster (!). Even the fastest sportscar can only go so fast in New York City traffic – hence, we recommend owning one at your “summer house” upstate or on Long Island. You need an open expanse of freeway to enjoy a true Porsche. How about planning a road trip from New York City to Los Angeles? It might be the best five day drive you ever take. If you take it in a Porsche Carrera with this latest TAG on your wrist… and perhaps a beautiful wife, girlfriend, or “significant other,” it might be a “road trip to remember.”
But as for TAG Heuer watches, we know a lot. For one, you can wear them on the Subway and show off. You can wear them to parties, restaurants, and clubs in and around New York City and show off your passion for Swiss watches. If you’re lucky to purchase one of this limited edition set, be sure to bring it in to our New York City TAG Heuer repair shop for an evaluation. If you have an older model – perhaps bought years ago, inherited, or purchased on the pre-owned market – by all means, bring that TAG Heuer into our New York City repair and service center. Folks who are looking for TAG Heuer service and repair know that the place to go (by subway, Uber, or private vehicle) is Ron Gordon Watch Repair! Vroom, vroom!
