At the 2023 Dubai Watch Week, TAG Heuer reveals a new watch dedicated to the event’s host city, a Carrera Tourbillon H02T in a black PVD titanium case with carbon tachymeter fixed bezel and distinctive decorative elements, setting this limited series apart. While it is yet another rendition of the watch that made waves in 2016, bearing a sticker price below EUR 20k, the TAG Heuer Carrera Tourbillon H02T Dubai Skyline is worthy of a look as it retains its avant-garde appeal and impressive specs.
With skeletonization and a 45mm blackened Carrera case, coupled with the use of carbon and dark ink-blue accents on the indices and sub-dials counter rings, the Carrera Heuer 02T Dubai Edition is designed as a cutting-edge sports watch, lightweight and with 100m water resistance, with a unique allure. The anthracite dial has an outer flange featuring a second/minute track. For chronograph functions, activated by pushers at 2 and 4 o’clock (with a blue joint matching other coloured elements), use the minute counter positioned at 3 o’clock. At the same time, the elapsed hours are measured at 9. All hands, including the central hour, minute, and second, are rhodium-plated. Blue, faceted applied hour indices and polished hour and minute hands are treated with Super-LumiNova for enhanced visibility.
The caseback reveals a blue sapphire window providing a partial view of the movement, albeit somewhat obstructed by the printed Dubai skyline motif and a centrally positioned logo of the city. Powering the watch is the self-winding Calibre Heuer 02T Tourbillon with an integrated column wheel chronograph, delivering COSC-certified chronometer precision. The tourbillon regulator beats at 28,800vph, and a single barrel provides a good 65-hour power reserve.
The New TAG Heuer Carrera Tourbillon H02T Dubai Skyline is paired with a black alligator and leather strap, secured with a black PVD carbon titanium grade 2 folding clasp featuring double safety push-buttons and adorned with the TAG Heuer Shield. Priced at approximately EUR 22,000 (exact price to be confirmed), this exclusive edition is limited to 12 pieces. For more information, please visit tagheuer.com.
