As part of our capsule collection with RUF, we are releasing an exclusive TAG Heuer Carrera chronograph that would look good on your wrist while behind the wheel of a CTR or with your garage-inspired fit for the gram.

For the uninitiated, chronographs are mechanical stopwatches that exist within a watch along with its timekeeping function. Only the world’s best watchmakers produce this type of complication. But, even more so, this is not TAG Heuer’s first rodeo. The Swiss brand has been attributed with creating the world’s first self-winding chronograph in 1969 with their Calibre 11. Since then, collectors have kept many of the brand’s high-end chronographs in their watch rotation.

Today’s TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph pulls up in a beautiful and very wearable 42mm stainless steel case. Coming in with the assist, London’s Bamford Watch Department remixed and tailored the historic TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph for our RUF collection. Looking at the dial, the chronograph includes a customized Bamford green face with yellow accents, complete with branding from RUF, TAG Heuer, and Higsnobiety.
