Gold has always been associated with success, particularly when it comes to sporting endeavours. Similarly, few things represent success more than a fine gold watch. This is something that Heuer's maverick former CEO Jack Heuer knew very well, with the ever-savvy salesman coming up with a brilliant idea to promote his watches back in the day. 1970 saw the arrival of the first yellow gold automatic Carrera, the Heuer ref. 1158 CHN. Jack decided to gift examples of these luxe Carreras to winning Formula 1 drivers, with stars like Niki Lauda, Jacky Ickx and Ronnie Peterson eagerly toting their gold Heuers.

Soon, gold Heuer Carreras became a real status symbol among drivers - as well as among motorsports fans. To this day, there’s something inextricably glamorous about wearing a gold Carrera. That brings us to 2023, where TAG Heuer has recaptured that golden glamour with the new Carrera Chronograph Glassbox in yellow gold: a gloriously retro and sumptuous piece that absolutely oozes glory.

Reminds me of this dial. Stan aka Pacco17 just added one of these Formex beauties to his collection.








The vertical dial brushing texture reminds me of this one.



TAG Heuer knocked it out of the park in 2023​

Die-hard fans of any hobby are often the hardest to please, but even the most hardcore WIS seem to have softened to the prospect of TAG Heuer. Since Frédéric Arnault took up the reins in 2020, the brand has displayed a refreshingly clear sense of direction, and one that was much needed. 2023 was an important year, as the Carrera - a model that lays rightful claim to the term iconic - celebrated its 60th anniversary. To pay tribute, TAG Heuer introduced the brand-new Glassbox, and it's been a much-needed breath of fresh air - there's a reason why two of the five picks from today's list sport the 39mm Glassbox case. Further refinements followed with a slimmer time-only Carrera, some fun twists on the equally iconic Monaco, and a more everyday-friendly Solargraph. Here's a short recap of our favourites.

QUICK LOOK: This TAG Heuer Carrera Glassbox Dato Green Is Another Hit in the Carrera Lineage​

Feb 26, 2024

A striking green TAG Heuer Carrera Dato strengthens the rise of the Glassbox Chronograph range... In what was a celebratory year of this iconic racing-inspired collection, TAG Heuer presented a whole range of very handsome and superbly built chronographs, such as the 60th Anniversary Panda Edition. But the highlight of the year beyond a shadow of a doubt was the Carrera Glassbox, with its highly domed sapphire crystal and multi-level dial. The Glassbox came in several different iterations, and there's a new one for 2024 with a green edition inspired by the second-generation Carrera Dato Reference 3147 from 1968.

Here's a closer look at the new Dato-Inspired TAG Heuer Carrera Glassbox Chronograph Green.
