Tag Heuer makes it to the Caliber Corner this time with an interesting and robust variation on the El Primero movement from Zenith: the Calibre 36. This variation is a “Flyback” meaning you can’t break it with the wrong button sequence. You can also re-start the chronograph with one push. The vibrations per hour takes a tall leap for Tag at 36,000 vph – a Zenith specialty and always a Flipr favorite, more beats more accurate. This model is cased up to resemble a Heuer stop watch and does a nice job on the wrist as well. Easy access pushers, side by side sub-dials and contrast all make the look. Pricing is just shy of 8 thousand, so obtainable and sporty at 43mm.
Watch shown is a Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 36 Flyback Chronograph (Ref: CAR2B11.BA0799).

Ah Zenith in a Tag. No surprise, like the Seiko in a Tag. Clear the fog and we all see that Tag doesn’t really have an in-house movement at all.
Obtainable at $8,000? Oh the vanity.
