The Swiss luxury watchmaker TAG Heuer fights back against COVID-19 with the introduction of the a special edition of its iconic COSC-certified tourbillon chronograph Carerra. This special timepiece will be auctioned as a part of the “ODD BALLS Charity Auction” with proceeds of the auction being donated to the WHO COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
“As the COVID-19 pandemic spread, all of us at TAG Heuer have been deeply touched by the heroic efforts displayed daily and with such grace by those at the forefront of this crisis, working tirelessly to keep us safe. We’re gladly contributing this exclusive piece which expresses our admiration and gratitude, via the ODD BALLS Charity Auction, to the WHO programs worldwide which will directly aid the people in need.” says Stéphane Bianchi, CEO of the LVMH Watchmaking Division and CEO of TAG Heuer.
The TAG Heuer Carerra Chronograph Calibre Heuer 02 Tourbillon “ODD BALLS” Edition is a striking wristwatch crafted in a 45mm black sandblasted ceramic case and fitted to a black leather-on-rubber alligator strap. Its contemporary black opalin skeletonised dial features rhodium-plated chronograph subdials at 3 and 9 o' clock. What further makes the dial interesting is the TAG Heuer logo that has been inverted to represent the #StayHome spirit necessary to fight COVID-19. The black flying tourbillon at 6 o' clock makes an impression instantly. The open caseback houses a special engraving of the name of the donator and “REVOLUTION – COVID-19 SOLIDARITY AUCTION – UNIQUE PIECE” epitomises the extraordinary circumstances which led to the creation of this unique timepiece.
The watch is powered by the COSC-certified Calibre Heuer 02T with a power reserve of at least 65 hours.
