Former TAG Heuer CEO and current TAG Heuer Honorary Chairman Jack Heuer is no stranger to the watch industry. With a distinguished career guiding the Swiss brand during its glorious golden age in the 1960s, he helped establish some of the brand’s most iconic lines, including the Carrera in 1963, and now TAG Heuer is celebrating its 88th birthday with the release of the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Jack Heuer Birthday Gold Limited Edition replica CBN2041.FC8306 to celebrate its 88th birthday. This is a modern 42mm, 18k rose gold chronograph inspired by Jack Heuer’s favorite watch, the 1158CHN. The gold-cased 1158CHN (left) from the 1970s inspired the new limited edition.
The watch hails from the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph copy family, a somewhat dressier iteration of the motorsport-inspired original Carrera, which Jack Heuer famously created in 1963. This model traces its lineage to the all-gold Carreras of the 1970s (back when the company was still called simply “Heuer”), which Jack, then the CEO, would present as good luck charms to Formula 1 racing drivers such as Clay Regazzoni, Niki Lauda, and Ronnie Peterson, during the watch company’s partnership with Ferrari. These 1158CHN timepieces, which were engraved with a specific driver’s name and blood type (the latter in case of accidents on the track, presumably), are now among the most rare and collectible Heuer watches. Also significantly, this new birthday edition marks the return of 18k rose gold to TAG Heuer’s modern collection.
While the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Jack Heuer Birthday Gold Limited Edition replica draws inspiration from the classic Carrera 1158CHN, it’s an extremely loose interpretation and, as such, the dial design deviates markedly from its ‘70s forebear. The black panda subdials at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock remain, but most of the rest of the dial follows the current Carrera Chronograph template. The 6 o’clock running seconds subdial is cleanly minimalized to give a two-register look at a glance, while the raised gold trim around the 6 o’clock date window nicely echoes the look of the ‘70s original. While the opaline dial surface and slim rose-gold hardware create a timeless look, one of the most attention-grabbing elements of this dial is the applied twin infinity symbol just below the main handset. Symbolizing Jack Heuer’s endless contribution to the brand that bears his name, when viewed sideways it also reads as a number 88 to commemorate his birthday.
The 42mm case of the TAG Heuer Carrera Jack Heuer Birthday Gold replica watch follows the slim, elegant form of the Carrera Chronograph unveiled in September 2020, but renders the shape in 18K 5N rose gold. This is both a tribute to Jack Heuer’s beloved gold Heuer Carrera 1158CHN replica, which he used to gift as good luck charms to favored racing drivers like Niki Lauda, and is also his favorite metal. In initial images, the effect is striking, emphasizing the ‘60s design connotations of the narrow polished bezel, sharp-angled lugs, and piston pushers. Like its stainless steel counterparts, this case manages a respectable 100 meters of water resistance.
The movement inside the watch is the Calibre Heuer 02, an in-house, column-wheel, vertical-clutch chronograph movement featuring an impressive 80 hours of power reserve. The Jack Heuer Birthday Gold Limited Edition replica adds a special custom black rotor, incorporating both Jack Heuer’s signature and his motto, “Time never stops, why should we?”
