This is the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887 Automatic Chrono, which comes in a “Bullhead” configuration, meaning the pushers and crown are mounted on the top of the case instead of on the side.

The small seconds display, located directly above the date aperture at 6, has a sweeping hand but no sub-dial.
The Cal. 1887 manufacture movement is self-winding, has a 50-hour power reserve and beats at 4Hz. Curved sapphire glass on the front and smoked glass on the back. Black titanium grade 5 folding clasp. The price is $7800. (Ref. CAR2C12.FC6327)
