The case is 43mm, and with a thickness of 14.93mm, which to put in context is slightly slimmer than the Carrera 1887, which comes in at 15.78mm. There are two materials offered for the case, Stainless Steel and Titanium-carbide-coated Titanium. The steel models have a combination of brushed and polished finishes, which off-set each-other nicely, for example, the polished underside of the bezel. The pushers and crown on the steel models are based on the Carrera 1887 design.The crown features a rubber “over-moulding” and helps give the Titanium model its own look.
The dial has a two-element design, with the steel models offering a contrasting outer ring and centre dial- Silver (White) and Anthracite or Black and Anthracite. Note how the minute hand only extends to the edge of the centre dial rather than to edge of the dial as would be the case with a traditional watch. The Chronograph hand, however, is longer, again emphasising that this dial serves two purposes. The two registers are set inside angled surrounds and finished with an azurage pattern. The finishing on this dial is really special- you have the gloss finish of the outer ring, the beautiful star-burst finish of the inner dial and then the azurage pattern on the sub-dials.
While the Calibre 36 is essentially an El Primero 400, the Calibre 36 Flyback is based on the El Primero 405. The Calibre 36 is a beautiful looking movement, a view you can enjoy from the sapphire caseback.TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 36 Flyback quite rightly sits at the top of the Carrera range, with a distinctive design, beautifully finished dial, solid case- and of course, that movement. It’s designed for those who love larger cases, so if you are more used to say a 41mm case, it’s worth trying on before you buy to make sure you are comfortable with the size.
