TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Year of the Rabbit watch details
The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Year of the Rabbit is a special timepiece launched to commemorate the Chinese New Year celebrations. Limited to only 500 pieces, the watch comes in black, red, and golden chronographs that are redefined yet sporty but also infused with delicate symbols representing the cute animal. The watch also consists of a distinctive striped dial full of contrasting details, making for a bold style statement.
The back of the watch face is fully customized to reveal a printed red rabbit placed on the sapphire glass. Surrounding it are special engravings to indicate the watch’s limited release – “One of 500” and “Limited Edition”. In honour of the Lunar New Year, the watch box also comes in red, is adorned with a rabbit silhouette, and features the golden TAG Heuer logo.
The significance of the Year of the Rabbit
In the Chinese zodiac, the rabbit represents wit, prudence, and skill, positive attributes that undoubtedly resonate with a discerning clientele. Since ancient times, the colour red, present in subtle touches in this limited-edition timepiece, represents luck, joy, passion, and boldness in Chinese culture. Closely linked to the fire element, it is also the colour of choice for most revered spaces and possessions.
