To capture the style and personality of the new Carrera Lady watches, the Swiss watchmaker arranged a photoshoot with model, actress and TAG Heuer Brand Ambassador Cara Delevingne. A glance at the dial reveals refined indexes and hands. The dial is available in white mother-of-pearl, purple, blue, grey and black, and is perfectly legible thanks to its markedly pure design. A seconds scale is printed on the flange around the dial, and is surrounded by either a smooth or diamond-set bezel. A final detail that sets the new Carrera Lady wristwatches apart from their predecessors is the date window at 3 o’clock – the frame boasts an intriguing trapezoidal shape, as opposed to the square shape of the original.
The 36mm stainless-steel timepieces now feature curved lugs that are fastened to a brushed and polished stainless-steel bracelet, a calfskin strap or an alligator leather strap with a satin finish. The case size, coupled with the automatic movement, makes the Carrera Lady a contemporary watch that stands out from the avant-garde Swiss watchmaker’s other ladies’ timepieces. The 36mm case is larger than those of the women’s watches that TAG Heuer generally creates, but is ideal for a statement-making piece that is robust yet classy. TAG Heuer chose this collection to present its new folding clasp for leather straps, which is thinner than previous models and gives the overall aesthetic of the watch a wonderfully refined appearance.
