People are often somewhat overloaded when looking to buy a new Tag Heuer carrera Carrera watch. There are several series available with many very different looking Carrera watches available in each series. While each of the different Carrera collections is special in its own way, some have more historical importance. Our blog covered quite a few of the TAG Carreras in the past recently with the new TAG Heuer gran carrera Carrera Heuer 01 Bones watch which uses the new Heuer 01 movement but let’s work with this series back in time a bit when the TAG was making headlines with their first in-house movement …the TAG Heuer Calibre 1887. Let me take a look at what makes the 1887 tick. The 41mm Carrera 1887 brought about a beautiful limited and using edition view the LABEL Heuer 41mm Carrera Mercedes SLR 300 (Model #: car2112. fc6267 shown below)
As the trend for Profesión watches treatment larger so can be the watches themselves. TAG Heuer’s design team also picked up on the growing demand for rose gold in horological industry and accented many of their Carrera models with rose gold colored giving each of them a very classy look.
While some models of the Tag Heuer carrera Carrera caliber 1887 Automatic Chronograph 43mm were later discontinued leaving room for some newer versions, TAG Heuer gran carrera fans around the world still have lots of love for the Caliber 1887, TAG’s 1st in-house mechanical movement.
The actual TAG Heuer Carrera 1887 Chronograph uses what numerous would think about a historical motion. The 39 jewel high beat movements offers excellent precision that tests results that rival C. O. S. C. certified chronometers. So why would not they go beyond the basics to get officially certified by COSC? MARKING Heuer simply didn’t think that the added expense was worth the trouble. They could keep the 1887 at a more competitive price and still have all the benefits as a COSC certified chronometer and be attainable to more people. It is now known that INDICATE outfitted several chronographs with their 1887 activity over the years.
The beauty of this mobility didn’t just end with the chronometric precision; TAG Heuer carrera used Côtes de Genève finishing on the movement itself making it as beautiful to look at through the see-thorugh case back (on most models) as the watches on their own.
There was much debate in the horology community a while retrace if the quality and reliability 1887 had been, in fact , made 100% under one building. The debate began when a post on WatchUSeek (a discussion forum for enjoy enthusiasts) mentioned that it’s basically the identical to a Seiko caliber. Another website, Calibre11 (a POINT Heuer fan website) published article addressing this concern, ironing out any details of this allegation. Of all people to comment on it was former TOP DOG of DRAW Heuer himself (now BOSS of BVLGARI) Jean-Christophe Babin. Hearing information from an insider is always much more credible. Babin writes within the comment that the 1997-1999 Seiko patent has been granted to TAG as you see fit in their personal movement.

TICKET Heuer started with that base and completely re-engineered and redeveloped all core components and made every one of them in Switzerland either by the TAG Heuer gran carrera in their subsidiary, the Cortech factory or by a top Swiss supplier such as Nivarox. The 320 part competence is then put together entirely in TAG Heuer’s manufacture within La Chaux-de-Fonds. The dimensions of the action are very different from the original SII (Seiko Instruments Inc) particular. In fact , 20 out of the twenty component suppliers are Swiss and the only connection that it has to SII is that they still supply a few “nuts & bolts” elements such as levers, pins, as well as screws however no major horological parts.
That’s not to imply that there aren’t movement manufacturers that use non-Swiss components. Most of them do but the things that make it a Swiss Made caliber are all made in Swiss, re-engineered through TAG and also assembled 100% by MAKE Heuer.
