Killer Chronographs: The TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 Full Review

Titanium itself is lightweight; this titanium chronograph is anything but.

You don't need to be a character out of the Fast and the Furious to wear a chronograph. Although it is considered a sporty TAG Heuer watch, it looks great when dressed casually or dressed for business. This TAG watch also has excellent legibility with luminous hands and high contrast dials and indexes just like the famous TAG Heuer Aquaracer.

The TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 Full Review

The TAG Heuer Carrera Caliber 16 is made with space-age TiC also known as Titanium Carbide, a lightweight but reliable material that is completely aligned with TAG Heuer's motto "Don't Crack Under Pressure." You'll see a stark contrast between its jet black dial and the silver-rimmed chronograph sub-dials. The TAG Caliber 16 Chrono has a Tachometer on its black ceramic bezel for people that take their speed very seriously. Additionally, this TAG Chronograph watch has an enlarged start/stop button on the stopwatch feature so you'll never miss a beat.

This TAG watch uses the ETA 7750 movement also known as the TAG Heuer Calibre 16 and is one of the most successful automatic chronograph movements ever made. You can find it in many high-end watch brands such as Hublot, IWC, Panerai and many TAG Heuer series such as the Link, Carrera, and the TAG Aquaracer.

The TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 has several models ranging between 41 mm and 43 mm. Some have a rubber strap, stainless steel brushed or polished dial. This particular model pictured on the right is the Carrera Caliber 16 Day Date Automatic Chronograph model# cv2a81.fc6237 and is a 43mm watch. It looks particularly sporty with its matte black leather strap which is perfect for the now trending black matte paint jobs seen on many high-end street racing cars.

The TAG Heuer Calibre 16 watches vary in price, most of the available models can be found on the TAG Heuer price list at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of between $4,000 and about $5,200 but as always, Prestige Time has them for a discounted price.

As they say, the devil is always in the details and one of the great things about this watch is the attention to detail that the watchmakers at TAG Heuer invested. The subtle red dial accents, the matching red stitching on the leather band, the silver hands, sub-dials and Arabic numerals. Everything minute detail about this watch puts your mind behind of the wheel of a supercharged car with the sound of screeching tires emerging from a cloud of exhaust that blinds the rivals in your wake and that indistinguishable smell of burning rubber.
