TAG Heuer launched the Carrera Heuer-01, a modern reinterpretation of its classic Carrera chronograph watch, at Baselworld 2015. The watch, now a flagship of the brand as well as its current best seller, will soon be available for the first time in a matte black ceramic version. Here’s a sneak peek at the new Heuer-01, which officially launches later this month in Geneva during the SIHH watch fair.
Hublot has long been known for its bold use of non-conventional materials and combinations of materials in its watch cases; several years ago, the brand even created its own scratch-resistant “Magic Gold” alloy that it has since used in several watch models. This year, Hublot makes horological history with the first large-scale series of watches with cases cut from pure sapphire blocks.
