Introduced in 1996, this special watch was nearly identical to the original Heuer Carrera from 1963, featuring the same 36mm polished case, pump chronograph pushers, acrylic crystal, and dial design. It marked Tag Heuer’s first time pulling directly on the design of a historical model, and the move did not go unnoticed by the watch community. Following the success of the Carrera Re-Edition, Tag Heuer went on to produce re-editions of its other storied models including the Monaco, Monza, and Autavia. Nearly thirty years after its launch, the Carrera Re-Edition remains a popular watch on the secondary market and, despite rising prices, continues to provide collectors an affordable alternative to the scarce and expensive originals.

The only notable imperfections to the case include a small scuff on the upper part of the lug at 4:30, two very small dings to the bezel at 8:30, some small scratches on the back of the lugs from strap changes, and some minor scratching and dings to the case side at 9 o’clock.

Functions: All functions including the crown-winding, time-setting, and chronograph start/stop/reset are working as expected.
