Initially released in 1963, the Heuer Carrera chronograph has seen many variations and design changes. In celebration of its 60th anniversary, we’re presented with a new 39mm Carrera named “Glassbox”--derived from the domed sapphire crystal inspired by the hesalite crystals found on vintage Heuer’s of the 1970s. The new design allows the tachymeter scale to flow with the curvature of the crystal instead of laying flat like previous Carerras.
On Spec: The 2023 Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona
Synonymous with speed since its launch in 1963, the Cosmograph Daytona was designed for professional racing drivers. Its tachymetric bezel, in combination with its mechanical chronograph movement, was a track-side favourite in measuring time intervals and determining average speeds. Of course, a certain Hollywood actor may have helped drive the watch into legendary status. Nevertheless, today, it remains indelibly linked to the world of motorsport as it turns sixty years young.
On Spec: Omega Aqua Terra Shades
First launched in 2002, the Aqua Terra Collection from OMEGA was christened with a Latin name which celebrates the storied history and adventuresome spirit of the Seamaster line. It was a watch designed to be as steadfast on water as it was on land.
