A Japanese designer who founded cult streetwear label Fragment Design, Hiroshi Fujiwara is also a vintage watch aficionado (who sometimes shares his watches on Instagram). Mr Fujiwara has just worked with TAG Heuer to bring back the 1960s Carrera ref. 2447 NT in a 500-piece limited edition.

A relatively uncommon variant of the vintage Carrera, the ref. 2447 NT – “N” is short for noir, or black, while “T” is for tachymetre – has been reproduced in a fairly faithful manner as the Carrera Heuer 02 by Fragment Hiroshi Fujiwara.

The dial is black-on-black with a tachymetric scale, along a white outer seconds track, while the fragment design logo is unobtrusively placed at both 12 o’clock and five o’clock. And naturally the Super-Luminova on the dial and ivory is a faux-vintage ivory tone.

The polished steel case is 39mm in diameter, larger than the 36mm original but still compact by modern standards, and small enough for a vintage feel in the hand.

Inside the Calibre Heuer 02, an in-house automatic movement with an integrated chronograph mechanism that relies on both a column wheel and vertical clutch. It has an 80-hour power reserve.

The movement is visible through the sapphire case back, which also has the fragment design double lighting bolt logo printed on its underside.

The watch is delivered on both a crocodile “Bund” style strap as well as a black and grey fabric NATO-style strap.

Limited to 500 consecutively numbered watches, the Carrera Heuer 02 by Fragment Hiroshi Fujiwara (ref. CBK221A.EB0171) is priced at US$8100 and is available at TAG Heuer boutiques but also on tagheuer.com.
