in Tag Heuer | Wednesday, August 19. 2009

Just in time for the back to school rush Tag Heuer is releasing a brand new Carrera Calibre 5. The Carrera Calibre 5 Watch wll be available in two variations one with a black dial and one with a brown dial. I personally like the brown dial, which does not happen very often as I prefer black to brown, but this watch seems to be complimented well by it. The dial of the new Carrera watch has a Clous De Paris pattern and an alphabetical time scale flange. The dial allows for great readability, even under reduced light conditions as it has hand-applied hour markers and polished baton-shaped hands coated with luminescent material. Its date display can be found at 3 o’clock position. The standard “Carrera” and TAG Heuer logo are at 12 o’clock position. The face of the watch is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.

The polished stainless steel case measures in at 39 millimeters in diameter and it incorporates either a black or brown aluminum bezel. Its see-through case-back is constructed from sapphire crystal which reveals the TAG Heuer Calibre 5 automatic movement. This popular and reliable movement has the advantage of a 42-hour power-reserve. The excellent case construction allows for a 100-meter water-resistant. The TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 5 watch completed by a 5-row stainless steel bracelet which has contrasting brushed and polished finishing which is kept securly on the wrist with its polished folding clasp with safety push buttons.
