TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Team Ikuzawa

A Limited-Edition Statement PieceTag Heuer Carrera Ikuzawa

The TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph x Team Ikuzawa by Bamford is a limited-edition watch that captures the clean, graphic, and indelibly Japanese style of Team Ikuzawa in a modern racing chronograph.

The watch features a 42mm stainless steel case with a sapphire display caseback that features a limited edition serial number, along with logos for both Team Ikuzawa and Bamford Watch Department.

The dial is where the watch adds its own character to the Carrera formula, with a stark, razor-sharp, and Supreme-esque priority towards labels above all other visual detail. The main dial surface, along with the outer chapter ring and 3 o’clock chronograph subdial chapter ring, are finished in bright, matte snow white. The pure matte red used on the striped baton handset, dial text, and 9 o’clock chronograph hours subdial offers a classic, sporty contrast, without disrupting the pared-back feel of the design at large.

Of course, the most striking nod to Team Ikuzawa and its proudly Japanese heritage is the 9 o’clock subdial itself, which forms a cleverly integrated rising sun emblem across much of the dial.

The watch is powered by the Heuer 02 automatic chronograph movement, which provides a beefy 80 hour power reserve at a 28,800 bph beat rate.
