TAG Heuer Carrera Three Hands Calibre 5 and Twin-Time Calibre 7 – In Depth Review

Last Updated on October 15, 2021 by Calibre 11

It’s not all that often that TAG Heuer launches a new 3-hand or “non-Chronograph” Carrera series. In fact, since the arrival of the first 39mm Calibre 5 Carrera in 2003/4 (the “WV” series), the Carrera watch has remained fairly constant, with a refreshed collection (“WAR”) arriving in 2014 and now in 2021 the new WBN Carrera Three Hands series. The reason that these Carreras have such longevity is down to their timeless design- no outlandish dials, stripes or modular lugs to be found here.

The changes to the new collection bring the three hand Carreras into line with the upgraded design of the 2020 Carrera Sport and Carrera Elegant series and offers three distinct men’s models- a 39mm Calibre 5 date, a 41mm Calibre 5 Day-Date and a 41mm Twin-Time Calibre 7 (which technically speaking has a fourth hand if you want to be pedantic). There is also a 29mm Lady’s offering featuring the Calibre 9 automatic movement.

We’ve managed to get our hands on four newcomers from the updated range- two 39mm Carrera Date watches and two 41mm Day-Date models- to step through all the changes and upgrades.
