Breakthrough the boundaries, open up new realms, develop innovative technology, and move to more distant places-this is the driving force behind China’s Lunar Exploration Program (CLEP); in 2016, the plan chose TAG HEUER is a strategic partner and official timekeeper.
TAG HEUER collaborates with China’s Lunar Exploration Project to launch two watches, the Aquaracer Calibre 5 and Carrera Heuer 01 watches
TAG HEUER is holding a ‘Sounding. Monthly’ roadshow in China to share these shared values. The Long March V rocket model, detection robots and even space capsules let the public experience the technology and knowledge of China’s lunar exploration project.
Aquaracer Calibre 5 features a solid caseback with a lunar rover engraved on the caseback
Taking advantage of this opportunity, in 2018, two special edition watches commemorating the cooperation between the two parties came out, namely the Carrera Heuer 01 watch and the Aquaracer Calibre 5 automatic watch.
Although the Carrera Heuer 01 is a transparent bottom cover, half of the side is still printed with a lunar rover and a lunar pattern. It is not only memorable, but you can also enjoy the appearance of the Heuer 01 movement. In addition, the timepiece of the watch is also decorated with yellow and red.

The strap, face dial, chronograph dial and bezel are all black, and the unique craftwork movement-Heuer 01 is made by Tag Heuer.

The Aquaracer Calibre 5 mechanical watch is specially designed for conquering space and inherits the characteristics of the Aquaracer series. The watch is water-resistant to 300 meters and can withstand heavy pressure. The 43 mm case and unidirectional rotating bezel are made of black ceramic.
