TAG Heuer Celebrates Old Gold With Its New Watches In 2024

In similar fashion to many of its highlights from Watches & Wonders 2023, the La Chaux-de-Fonds-based watchmaker has served up a collection of elevated classics this year.

From an all-new Monaco chronograph and solid-gold Carrera Skipper, to fresh takes on underrated members of the Carrera family, there’s a lot to love about what TAG Heuer has brought to the table in 2024. Let’s get into it.

Our Favourite Watches From TAG Heuer In 2024

TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Skipper In Gold

Kicking things off with a watch that’s sure to get collector’s hearts racing, the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Skipper makes a return, but this time in a solid 5N rose gold case. It features the overarching dimensions as its stainless steel predecessor, but takes things to another level with carefully brushed lugs and a mirror-polished bezel.

The 5N rose gold case contrasts brilliantly against the deep blue dial — featuring the multi-coloured chronograph registers that have made the Skipper so collectible — with hands and hour markers that are solid gold and gold-plated respectively. The blue fabric strap provides another reminder of the watch’s nautical origins.

Beneath the dial you’ll find the same automatic Calibre Heuer 02 (Ref. TH20-06) movement, with a column-wheel activated chronograph and robust 80-hour power reserve.

TAG Heuer Monaco Split-Seconds Chronograph

While 2023 saw the launch of several skeletonised Monaco references, this year TAG Heuer has well and truly leveled up in that area, with the addition of two Monaco Split-Seconds chronographs. Consisting of a red and blue edition, they are crafted from Grade 5 titanium; weighing just 85g on the wrist, burnishing the Monaco’s reputation as a true sports timer.

“TAG Heuer has always been committed to pushing the boundaries of timekeeping, and with the introduction of the Monaco Split-Seconds Chronograph, we are not only embracing our rich heritage but also redefining the future of Haute Horlogerie d’Avant-Garde,” said Julien Tornare, CEO of TAG Heuer. “This timepiece is the epitome of precision and innovation, a perfect fusion of tradition and cutting-edge technology, showcasing our expertise in watchmaking craftsmanship.”

To create such a lightweight timepiece, not only has the case been manufactured in titanium, so has the newly launched calibre TH81-00. Thanks to innovations led by TAG Heuer movements director Carole Forestier-Kasapi, it’s the lightest automatic chronograph movement the brand has ever created; beating at 36,000 vph, with a 65-hour power reserve at full wind.

Framed by the 41mm titanium cases (15.2mm in thickness) are two sapphire crystal dial variations, with the red enjoying a darker DLC colour scheme; and the blue, a gradient-style finish along the bridges.

Paired with matching textile straps, the new Monaco Split-Seconds Chronograph references are a technical masterpiece that put the “AG” (avant-garde) in “TAG”.

TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph “Panda”

In addition to the box-fresh Skipper, the mainline Carrera has also gotten an update; with the new version taking inspiration from the 7753 SN of the late 1960s.

Reportedly one of Jack Heuer’s favourite Carrera references, the silver and black “Panda” dial (the SN prefix stands for “Silver” and “Noir”) was designed to be extremely legible when worn — a concept which remains front of mind for TAG Heuer in contemporary times.

It features a 39mm case (13.86mm thick) with the popular domed “Glassbox” crystal over the dial — meaning the tachymetre bezel is subsumed beneath the crystal — with the enduringly sharp lines that the Carrera is already beloved for.

Powered by the automatic Heuer 02 movement, expect an 80-hour power reserve; 100m of water resistance; and for the first time with the “Glassbox” design, a stainless steel bracelet.

TAG Heuer Carrera Date

Last, but certainly not least, is this extension of the TAG Heuer Carrera Date collection — consisting of three new references in total. All feature 36mm cases (10.60mm thickness), arrive on bracelets, and are powered by the self-winding Calibre 7, but that’s where their similarities stop.

The first new reference features a charming copper dial, complemented by a 5N rose gold bezel and crown; while the second enjoys a white Mother-of-Pearl dial and a total of 76 diamonds set around the watch’s rehaut.

The third and final new reference combines the details of the first two, boasting 76 diamonds around the Mother-of-Pearl dial perimeter, diamond hour markers, as well as a 5N rose gold bezel and crown.
