TAG Heuer Carrera Replica Watches: The Carrera will always be synonymous with Jack Heuer, the great grandson of the founder of (TAG) Heuer. It was under Jack Heuer’s leadership that the Carrera was developed and launched in 1963. Taking its name from the Spanish word for “Race”, the watch has been linked with Motorsports from the very beginning. The Carrera Panamericana was a race held between 1950-1954 on the newly Panamericana highways in Mexico. Run over 6 days, the event was born in the same spirit as the Targa Florio and Mille Miglia races in Italy.
