This watch is a rare find.

It was one of the most eagerly anticipated TAG Heuer watches in years when it was released and this particular watch was purchased in February 2015.

It has only be worn twice leaving it in perfect, 'as new' condition. The styling plays to Tag Heuer's historic roots and will draw endless glances from envious onlookers.

This Carrera is made to mark the 80th Birthday of Jack Heuer, the grandson of the TAG Heuer founder and CEO of company during its dynamic period of innovation in the 1970s. 

This sporty and stylish Tag Heuer Chronograph is a fine example of everything you would expect from the brand and its current approach.

The silver dial has an enchanting finish that gives the dial a different appearance depending on the angle of the light. This 'star-bust' style dial finish is really attractive.

The dial has two large, recessed sub-dials, which record running seconds and a 30-minute chronograph. Both are finished with a radial pattern and bordered by a thin, angled silver frame.

The red “80” on the dark-grey inner tachymetric bezel in recognition of Jack Heuer's personal milestone. The strap also has a bright red-lining which you get a suggestion of when wearing the watch - it makes for a descrete, but defining detail.

Outer and inner box and all singed papers included.

The 2012 Carrera Jack Heuer 80th Birthday Edition is a Limited Edition of 3000 watches. TAG Heuer have resisted the temptation to increase the numbers of the watch, with the number staying as was originally announced. The demand for this watch has far exceeded the production run of 3000, making this a sort after watch.

This watch represents Jac Heuer's final gift to fans of TAG Heure. Jack Heuer has a given everything, including his name, to the brand and was was involved in the design of many production watches, including the Grand Carrera series and this watch. 

The Carrera 80 is perhaps the most “complete” design that TAG Heuer have released over the last few years. It’s a beautifully resolved watch that feels and looks special. These may not be easy to get hold of, but it will be worth the effort for 3,000 lucky collectors.
