Replica TAG Heuer Carrera, the Heuer Carrera chronograph was launched in 1963, but the real story begins even earlier in 1950 when the Carrera Panamericana car race first ran. The Carrera will always be synonymous with Jack Heuer, the great grandson of the founder of (TAG) Heuer and the man who guided the company as CEO for twenty years, from 1962-1982. The 1887 is TAG Heuer’s basic in-house chronograph movement. The balance beats at 4 Hz, the power reserve is approximately 50 hours (40 or so if you’re using the chronograph a lot), and it is wound automatically by a full sized rotor. There are subdials for running seconds, a 30-minute chronograph register, and a 12-hour chronograph register, as well as a small date wheel. Importantly, the chronograph itself utilizes a column wheel instead of a lesser clutch.
