LVMH Watch Week: See 6 New Watches From TAG Heuer

Half of the new models introduced this week are versions of the Connected, the brand’s smartwatch.

An updated version of its popular Connected Calibre E4 Golf Edition smartwatch was one of the timepieces TAG Heuer introduced during LVMH Watch Week, held this week in Singapore.
New York—TAG Heuer introduced six new models during LVMH Watch Week and, notably, half of them were smartwatches. 
 
The LVMH-owned brand debuted the TAG Heuer Connected Calibre E4 Sport Edition, a Connected E4 in black titanium, and a slightly smaller (42 mm) version of the Connected golf watch.
 
The Connected Calibre E4 Golf Edition is like a “perfect caddie on the wrist,” TAG Heuer said.
 
Made smaller to appeal and both men and women and lighter by the use of black titanium for the case, the smartwatch has Full Shot Tracking functionality, tracking each stroke from tee to green including putting, and allocates each shot to a club. 
 
Using machine learning, the watch is then able to monitor the wearer’s club statistics over time and make personalized recommendations on which club to use.  
 
The Connected Calibre E4 Golf Edition will be available in the spring.

Like the golf watch, the new black titanium Connected Calibre E4 has been sized down—to 42 mm from 45 mm—for more unisex appeal and is lighter.
 
It also is being offered in all black for the first time with a black strap, black dial, and black crown version.
 
It will be available in mid-February. 
 
Rounding out the trio of Connected offerings is a new version of the 45 mm Connected Calibre E4 Sport Edition. TAG Heuer has redesigned the strap to be more aesthetically pleasing and breathable.
 
With a new software update that will be available in mid-February, it also will be adding a “Trail & Hiking” application aimed at runners and hikers who love the mountains. 
 
The Connected Sport Edition is slated to launch at the end of January.

What would a rollout of new watches be without some sort of anniversary model? 
 
For TAG Heuer this go-round, it is marking the 60th anniversary of the Carrera Chronograph, the Jack Heuer-created watch inspired by the dangerous-yet-short-lived Carrera Panamericana road race in Mexico. 
 
The anniversary timepiece is limited to 600 pieces and features a 39 mm polished steel case, silver dial with black subdials (a.k.a., a “panda” dial), and vintage pushers.

TAG Heuer said the inspiration for this anniversary edition Carrera was the Carrera 2447 SN (silver and noir) from the late 1960s.  
 
It is a “faithful reinterpretation” of the model, the brand said, minus a few small differences, like the use of Super-LumiNova to light up the dial instead of radioactive tritium, which was designated by a “T” on the dial. 
 
It is powered by the Heuer 02 in-house movement with 80-hour power reserve and will be available in January. 
 
A new version of another racing watch introduced decades ago, the Monza, also got an update.
 
The new special edition 42 mm Monza Flyback Chronometer is a modern take on a model first introduced by TAG Heuer in 1976 to celebrate legendary driver Niki Lauda’s Formula One World Championship in 1975.
 
TAG Heuer introduced the Monza model in 1976. It revived it in the early 2000s and has brought back versions intermittently ever since.
TAG Heuer introduced the Monza model in 1976. It revived it in the early 2000s and has brought back versions intermittently ever since.

It features a case made of ultra-lightweight carbon and is powered by the in-house Calibre Heuer 02 Flyback movement, a COSC-certified chronograph. This marks the first time TAG Heuer has offered the flyback function on a modern watch outside the Autavia line. 
 
It will be available in January. 
 
Finally, TAG Heuer created a titanium version of the Aquaracer Solargraph, the model introduced at Watches & Wonders Geneva last year.
 
The Solargraph is TAG Heuer’s first solar-powered watch. The company says it can be fully charged in sunlight in less than 20 hours and, once completely powered up, will last up to six months even if it has no exposure to light. 
 
It is powered by the caliber TH50-00 movement, created exclusively for TAG Heuer by Manufacture La Joux-Perret in Switzerland.

The new 40 mm titanium Aquaracer Professional 200 Solargraph was designed to be more durable and of higher quality. 
 
It will be available in February.
 
LVMH Watch Week kicked off Tuesday and continues through today in Singapore. 
 
The other LVMH-owned watch brands—Bulgari, Zenith and Hublot—will debuting their new timepieces during the event as well.
