Tag Heuer is celebrating the birthday of Jack Heuer with a special edition of his iconic creation, the Carrera. The newly relaunched model has been updated in 18K gold for his 88th birthday and those lucky numbers have been stamped on the center of the watch as a double infinity loop. The 42mm case frames an opaline dial with a silver flange, "azurage" counters, and rose gold hands and indexes. The watch is powered by their in-house Calibre Heuer 02 automatic movement, which features an 80 hour power reserve and each watch is fitted with a black alligator leather strap with an 18k rose gold pin buckle. 

The watch will be limited to 188 examples and is available next March.
