TAG Heuer welcomed for the first time in its headquarter in La Chaux-de-Fonds, the new Friend of the Brand, the mesmerizing Raha Moharrak. This young Saudi lady made history in 2013, when she was 25 years old, when she became the first Saudi lady and the youngest Arab to climb Mount Everest, which culminates at 8’848 meters above sea level!
The long, angular lugs are a defining Carrera attribute, at least in my own mind, and the change here was likely essential to accommodate the curvy Link-style bracelet — that is important. It’s important since this appearance is closely associated with Senna, and you’ll discover it in some form or another in the a variety of TAG Heuer Ayrton Senna watches. Such as the circumstance, it’s brushed, black PVD-coated steel and this Link bracelet — with more angular edges compared to older Connect stools had — seems contemporary and trendy. It is intriguing how multiple well-known elements from various TAG Heuer watches have come together without feeling like a collage.That said, the sporty minute-indicator-style of the hour markers as well as other TAG touches keep the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-01 Ayrton Senna unmistakably a Carrera. Even the skeletonization style of this dial differs from the typical Heuer-01, and together all these elements constitute a fairly fresh take on the Carrera. Have a look at Ariel’s comparison review of the Carrera 1887 Automatic Chronograph along with the Carrera Heuer 01 to receive a more detailed look at the differences and commonalities between these two sides of the TAG Heuer Carrera coin.With that the introduction of a variation in ceramic, as well as a welcome 43mm version of this TAG Heuer Heuer-01, this sort of makes me think we might have had a 43mm version in black ceramic, which could have been cool. Rather, we’re back up to some powerful 45mm in black PVD-coated, brushed steel (water-resistant to 100m). A domed and anti-reflective-treated sapphire crystal, of course, protects the dial. The dial is brushed, and it’s cool how the automotive-looking skeletonization design comprises the hour markers.

Raha Moharrak is a source of inspiration, who keeps on pushing boundaries by always taking on challenges more daring than the last one. She chose to join the TAG Heuer Family by becoming a friend of the brand, perfectly illustrating the brand’s motto #Dontcrackunderpressure. Traveling for the first time through the mountain of Neuchatel, the young sportswoman had the opportunity to visit the TAG Heuer manufactory as well as the TAG Heuer museum. Dynamic and committed, Raha Moharrak was very interested in the mechanics of the pieces and the know-how of the watchmakers.
