This Iconic Timepiece Is The Best Christmas Gift You Can Give Yourself

Fact: A watch is one of the wisest investments you can ever have—not just because of the value it acquires over time, but because of its inimitable uniqueness as an heirloom for the next generation. The watch you sport also speaks volumes about who you are; hence, your timepiece selection is crucial. The good news is, your taste for the finer things in life that always goes hand in hand with your penchant for things functional now has its match in the exciting new iteration of a beloved timepiece.


A 45 mm Skeleton Manufacture Chronograph with a contemporary sports design, and coming in at under 5000 CHF, the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-01 has been winning hearts since its release in 2015 for succinctly combining form and function at utmost value for money. It will make you swoon anew with its recently unveiled slightly smaller diameter of 43 mm, in a choice of three versions: intense black, deep navy blue, and an elegant cognac brown.


As stellar as the satin-finished steel of the iconic 12-part modular case is the polished ceramic tachymeter bezel, while the skeleton dial, the trademark of the Heuer-01, along with the sapphire case-back perfectly showcase the exquisite mechanism. A timepiece that will render any recipient speechless, this is a wonderful present for yourself that just keeps on giving. There are the chronograph operating levers and the date disc that are open-worked on the dial side. The case back’s red column wheel, the skeleton chronograph bridge, and circular black PVD weight also draw the eye into the mechanism, which is equipped with a clutch with oscillating pinion.


The power of red couldn’t be any more apparent in the movement’s Chrono functions: the central seconds, the 30-minute counter, the 12-hour counter, and the Start/Stop push-button. An ode to motor racing, its sporty exterior complements the exciting Heuer-01 Manufacture Chronograph movement, named in honor of the brand's founder, Edouard Heuer. While it was an instant charmer when it was first launched in 2015, this highly improved and optimized TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-01 is sure to capture even more hearts, and be a staple on many wrists the world over, for its sleekness and versatility.

You wouldn’t want to get left behind—propel yourself forward with a timepiece that’s as hardworking and stylish as you are this Christmas and beyond.
