TAG Heuer Men's WAV5112.BA0901 Grand Carrera Grand Date GMT Watch

Written By: Caitlin Rojas

The Grand Carrera series, inspired by Motor Racing heritage, is a unique and avant garde approach to watchmaking. It is one of the first watches to include rotating discs, like a car engine, instead of hands to help record movement. This impressive design is unique to the WAV5112.BA0901 Model, and is similar to that of the GT race car engine design.

While the watch itself is manly enough to be inspired by GT racing cars, the design is anything but macho. With a sophisticated Stainless-Steel band in the iconic TAG Heuer style, the watch also includes hand polished hour and minute indicators with a luminescent finish. The hands are also polished and finished with a luminescent coating. There is a second time-zone feature directly above the 6th hour, and a Grand-Date calendar feature directly below the 12th hour.

The Grand Carrier series is also geared for divers and swimmers, as it is waterproof up to 100 Meters (330 Feet,) and faced with Double-AntiReflective Sapphire Crystal for easy readability in and around the water and sun. Additionally, the watch is powered by Caliber 8 RS technology, using the natural movements of your arms, hands and wrists, and never needing to be wound.

The only potential downside to this watch as I can see, is its price. The lowest price currently online is $3,300 – and the list price that TAG Heuer gives is around $4,200. However, if you’re even getting anywhere near¬†this watch in your searches, I can presume you know what you’re getting yourself into. This is, indeed, a luxury item of the highest quality, and if watches are your thing, then this is just for you. And hey.¬†Brad Pitt is a fan.

This watch is incredibly luxurious, yet not showy in its display. Additionally, it is so elite, it comes with its own certification from TAG Heuer, guaranteeing its superior components and precise timekeeping. The Sapphire Window protects the Silver dial, and the Silver Clasp Displays the TAG Heuer Logo. After all, if you’re wearing a $4,000 – wouldn’t you like people to know it?
