Tag Heuer Debuts Limited-Edition Green Carrera Automatic Timepiece

From Rolex's Datejust 36 watch inspired by the forest, Ferragamo's F-80 Skeleton that we covered, to Breitling's Premier B21 Chronograph in "racing green," it seems that the green fever has recently caught up the most renowned watchmakers. TAG Heuer couldn't miss the chance to roll out a fair amount of limited-edition timepieces that come in the trending hue.

This green dial pays tribute to the original 1963 model by subtly incorporating Riviera style accents. It adds a deep tone to the Carrera chronograph line, combining the vintage look with a modern aesthetic design.

Its teal dial, which is its most prominent feature, can be found under the dome-shaped sapphire crystal. Combined, they give the watch an elegant and luxurious look.

Its stainless-steel 39mm clean and simple case highlights the traditional '60s model while sizing up slightly from the 36mm dimensions of the first Carrera. The heart of this timepiece lies in the Heuer 02 in-house automatic chronograph movement, which is hidden under the sapphire crystal window and dial. The mechanism stores up an 80-hour power reserve and a good 100 meter (328 ft) resistance.

The bridge is decorated with the iconic Heuer shield logo, with a touch of teal to the rotor and column wheel for a more striking and dramatic touch. In tone with the retro-modern look, TAG Heuer completed the whole package with its classic black alligator leather strap.

While the blend of blue and green reminds us of the shade of British Racing Green like we've seen a while back on a Porsche 911 GT3, the collection's name also hints at the recent collaboration between the German car manufacturer and the Swiss luxury watchmaker, which certainly will bring out more auto-inspired timepieces.

In a sea of green watches, the TAG Heuer Carrera Green is not just a regular dial. This chronograph is limited to 500 pieces and can be purchased for $7,930, making for an excellent accessory for any watch collector, be it a little more pricey than its siblings in the collection.
