Keeping an eye on time on land and water - the Day Date function
The special feature of this watch is the particularly large day and date display. This hand-applied feature lets you keep track of your everyday life. Thanks to its water-resistance, in some cases up to 300 metres, this stainless steel version of the watch remains your permanent companion. For those who prefer leather watch straps, the TAG Heuer Calibre 16 Day Date also offers a choice: various designs with padded soft-touch alligator leather give the watch several faces. The stainless steel case back and scratch-free sapphire crystal symbolise the passion for racing (e.g. reference CV2A1R.BA0799).
The Calibre 16 Day Date - symbol of the avant-garde TAG Heuer brand
In 1963 Jack Heuer developed the first watch made for professional racing drivers: the Carrera Panamericana was the first chronograph with a simple and elegant design that made the watch a companion for long journeys and everyday life, thus breaking the existing watchmaking conventions. The combination of functionality and fashion made the Carrera a tribute to motorsport fans and dreamers always in a race against time. Founded in 1960, TAG Heuer has been a trendsetter and remains the Swiss avant-garde brand for high-quality manufactory movements. The most reliable caliber on the market, TAG Heuer has been setting new standards in quality and precision since 1887 with its Calibre movement.
