Whereas the timepiece makers tend to follow the conventional method and design in luxury watch production, Hiroshi Fujiwara thinks different from the mass. Since the 1980s, his unique and path-breaking ideas have created the sensation in the fashion world with immense impact. Being known for his versatile talent, this time one of the biggest players of the industry TAG Heuer have partnered with him to reinvent the famous Carrera Heuer series with a completely new charm and feel.
Namely, Carrera Heuer, 02 Fragment Special Edition features a metallic 39 mm dia dial. As far as the rigidity and toughness is concerned, this timepiece got a water resistance of 100 meters (330 feet). The classic look of the dial has a resemblance with the 3-6-9 counter layout of 1963. At 3 o’clock position, the minutes subdial is situated. Similarly, the hour dial and the permanent second’s dials are installed at 9 o’clock and 6 o’clock respectively.
Built by 168 discrete and tiny components, this timepiece runs with unmatched accuracy in terms of time and chronology. Oscillation at the rate of 4 HZ empowers the watch to be able to create a power reservoir of 75 hrs back up. There are only 500 pieces of limited edition watches are available for sale in the market, priced at 7900 Swiss Frank each.
