The sleek TAG Heuer Grand Carrera CAV5115.FT6019 keeps accurate time with its Calibre 36 RS Caliper Automatic Chronograph, which is the world’s first mechanical chronograph. This watch measures and displays time to 1/10th of a second, always keeping you on time. The GT race car engine inspires its dashboard style discs, which gives optimum at-a-glance reading and an avant-garde design. This timepiece is exquisitely made with its fine-brushed polished steel case, black dial, and black openwork waterproof rubber strap. Some of the luxury features of this one-of-a-kind watch are:

– Scratch resistant sapphire crystal
– Anti-reflective watch face
– Tachymeter scale that measures average speed
– Hands and indexes that illuminate
– Water resistant up to 100M
– Safety button on the bracelet that prohibits unintentional release
– Shows seconds, minutes and hours at 9 o’clock
– Shows chronograph minutes at 3 o’clock
– Shows chronograph hours at 6 o’clock

There are a few aspects of the TAG Heuer Grand Carrera CAV5115.FT6019 that you should be aware of before purchasing. One, for instance, is that the water-resistent technology is not designed to last forever. It’s recommended that the watch be tested annually to guarantee that its rubber seal is intact and keeping water out. Eventually the outer coat of the dual-antireflective finish will naturally begin to wear off, and while the numbers displayed on the watch are readable, it can be difficult to distinguish the needles for each other since there are only two colors for three different needles (the 1-20 second needle is black as is the 21-40 second needle. The 41-60 second needle is red). There are also a few technical difficulties syncing the time to automatic time, for instance, some users have had trouble resetting the hour disc to zero.

All in all, however, the TAG Heuer Grand Carrera CAV5115.FT6019 is a stylish, elegant choice that keeps excellent time and does not need to be adjusted regularly. This watch has won the Grand Prix de L’Horlogerie de Geneve Award as well as other notable awards and is undoubtedly both a luxury and state-of-the-art timepiece.
