Week of big presentations by LVMH in Singapore… Today we analyze the new “analogue” Tag Heuer models.
TAG Heuer Aquaracer Solargraph
A few months after the launch of its innovative TAG Heuer Aquaracer Solargraph at Watches and Wonders 2022, TAG Heuer is pleased to announce the arrival of the new TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 200 Solargraph, also powered by a solar movement. This new timepiece joins the carefully curated TAG Heuer Aquaracer collection with new model strengths such as lightness and durability, features that make it the perfect companion for outdoor activities.
As with last year's version, the traditional horizontal-line sunray-brushed dial is semi-transparent to allow light to feed into the solar movement TH50-00. Made in collaboration with TAG Heuer e La Joux-Perret (owned by Citizen), the movement will never need to change its battery: two minutes of sunlight powers the watch for a full day, and 20 hours of solar charging provides six months of energy. The date is always at three o'clock and the white hour markers continue to glow bright green (or, for the minute hand, polar blue, at the five minute markers on the outer track) with the same Super-LumiNova. Case from 40mm in sandblasted grade 2 titanium like the bezel and bracelet. List price: €2.950
TAG HEUER CARRERA 60TH ANNIVERSARY
The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph 60th Anniversary Edition is a throwback to the late Sixties, a watch inspired by the Carrera reference 2447SN (silver dial, noir registers), which represents the second series of the family with panda and inverted panda dials.
The watch is presented in a stainless steel case 39 mm (polished) with a retro-looking raised profile sapphire crystal with just the right amount of vintage. The old-fashioned polished pushers, the ring on the periphery of the sun-brushed silver dial, the hour markers with the characteristic black stripe in the center for better readability, the double index at 12, the hour markers and hands and the beige luminescent minutes to indicate the time in the dark look like a carbon copy of the 60s original. The caliber to animate is HEUER 02, in-house automatic chronograph with 80-hour power reserve. Limited edition di 600 pieces: €7100
TAG Heuer Monza Flyback Chronometer
The Monza model returns in a contemporary guise for a tribute to the indissoluble link between TAG Heuer and motor racing: this carbon version with an ultra-sporty look embodies the essence of the Maison.
With a diameter of 42 mm, the carbon case of the TAG Heuer Monza Flyback Chronometer it features steel pushers and crown with black DLC coating and a PVD-coated titanium case back secured by 4 screws. As in some Heuer racing chronographs of the past, two different scales are engraved on the rehaut. The tachymeter is essential to a racing chronograph and allows you to measure speed. The pulsometer scale helps determine heart rate. Highlighted in blue, it is graduated for 15 seconds and is located in the first quarter of the rehaut. The skeleton dial showcases the automatic caliber in all its beauty Heuer 02 in one version flybacks rarely used (previously only for Autavia).

Here it is customized with a blackened rotor with red markings and a red column wheel. Its accuracy is certified by the COSC.
