A Review of the UK Cheap Replica TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph Online

Carrera models encasing the manufacture Calibre Heuer 02 have been available since 2018, but the series lacked a classic version with a closed dial. Now TAG Heuer replica has closed that gap in the line in an attractive way. with the cheap fake TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph, which we review in this feature from our March-April 2021 issue.
A dial with counters at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions is called “tricompax” and is quite popular with chronograph fans, which is no surprise — the dial’s symmetry pleases the eye, which tends to seek order, and it’s also reminiscent of classic chronograph designs from the mid-20th century.

TAG Heuer’s current Carrera collection has included chronographs with tricompax dials since 2018 — powered by the recently introduced Caliber Heuer 02. But those Carrera manufacture models have a highly technical look, with openworked dials and metal components between the strap lugs, so they’re more likely to appeal to the tastes of the avant-garde than to lovers of classically styled chronographs. TAG Heuer fake followed the modern manufacture Carreras with the launch of two retro timepieces with closed dials, but still there were no contemporary serially manufactured models.

Now the Swiss watch brand has launched two collections: the black dial replica TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph and the Carrera Elegant Chronograph. Each line consists of four models. The Sport series differs from its elegant sister collection mainly because the cases are 2 mm larger in diameter, the bezels are wider and bear tachymeter scales, and the crown and push-pieces are more strikingly styled. In addition to three Carrera Sport Chronographs with metal bracelets, there is only one version with a leather strap. Our test takes a closer look at this model, which is an attractive combination of sporty and elegant design elements.
High-quality Workmanship
Even the critical eyes of our editors could discover no shortcomings in the craftsmanship of this watch. The multilevel dial with complex indexes and hands, the ceramic bezel, and the partly polished, partly satin-finished case are entirely free of flaws and fully worthy of a manufacture chronograph.

In addition to the excellent workmanship, the crown and clasp are very easy to use. The crown provides a good grip thanks to its deep fluting. And the clasp impressed us because it opens at the push of a button, snaps shut authoritatively and also includes a clamping mechanism that enables stepless adjustment of the length of the strap.

But with a retail price of $6,550, the version of the best quality copy TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph with the leather strap is considerably more expensive than the models with steel bracelets, which cost $5,750. The reason: the hands and indexes, as well as the crown and push-pieces, are plated with 18k rose gold. The gold creates a unique, sporty and elegant look and rounds out the new collection, but it probably won’t appeal to everyone who loves chronographs and sports watches.

These elegant accents go well with the new “closed” dial. All in all, the face of the watch is quite appealing thanks to its rounded surface with raised rings around the outer edge and on the chronograph’s elapsed-time counters at 3 and 9 o’clock. The subdial for the continually running seconds, on the other hand, is recessed. The hands, which combine ample luminous material and black lacquer, as well as the richly shaped and brightly luminous hour markers, stand out particularly well against the dial’s three-dimensional background.

After all these considerations, it seems almost ironic that the only detail on the dial that detracts from the impeccable styling is the last remaining aperture. The date window disrupts the harmony of the watch’s otherwise handsome and well-balanced face. The high quality copy TAG Heuer positioned the date display symmetrically at 6 o’clock, but it nonetheless strikes a jarring note because it partially overlaps the subdial for the continually running seconds and, above all, because the date’s numeral is written in a black typeface on a white background. A dark disk that matches the dial’s color would work wonders here.
A Modern Manufacture Movement
Regardless of the date display, the performance of manufacture Caliber Heuer 02 is impressive. It combines a high-quality ratchet-wheel control system with reliable vertical friction coupling, a large barrel for at least 80 hours of power reserve and a modern design with piercings in both the bridge above the self-winding mechanism and in the black-coated rotor. The caliber’s diameter of 31 mm is suitable for watches with modern dimensions, and its thickness of 6.9 mm is 1 mm slimmer than that of the classic Valjoux 7750 chronograph from Swiss high-volume manufacturer ETA. We were pleased to discover that TAG Heuer modified the lettering on the outer edge of the rotor for this special rose-gold model. The lettering here is rose colored rather than white, as it is on the rotors in Carrera watches with steel cases.

The rate values that we measured earned mixed reviews for Caliber Heuer 02. Our timing machine found that the tested movement ran with a slight daily loss of -0.7 seconds and a maximum deviation of 12 seconds among the individual positions. This large difference between the several positions is admittedly not ideal, but neither is it catastrophic. The disadvantages become apparent in daily use: depending on whether the watch was taken off at night, and on the position in which it was left lying down, the timekeeping suffered clearly fluctuating daily deviations between -1 and -5 seconds. The former is an acceptable value, but the latter is a sobering one for people who wear their watch every day and want to rely on it for weeks at a stretch.

INTRODUCING THE BEST UK FAKE TAG HEUER CARRERA GREEN LIMITED EDITION

Last month, Swiss watchmaker TAG Hauer replica surprised many in following the growing trend of green watches for the year, unveiling the now sold-out Monaco Green Dial LE. Today, the brand returns with its next limited-edition green dial design, applying the colorway to another famed collection, and introducing the new green dial fake TAG Heuer Carrera Green Limited Edition.


The new cheap TAG Heuer fake watch comes as the latest addition to the extensive neo-vintage vein of Carrera releases seen from the brand in recent years – for example the Carrera ‘Dato’ LE unveiled at the start of this year – and, as its name indicates, is a limited edition green dial version of the classic Carrera design. The look builds upon the growing movement towards green dials displayed across the industry, following up on other notable green chronographs not only including the Monaco LE, but also a verdant Hamilton Intramatic and Breitling Superocean Heritage among many others. At its core, the watch is a classically sized, familiar design, reworked into a novel, summer-ready style.
As is likely apparent, it’s the green-blue dial which is the new model’s primary draw. TAG Heuer, in sensing that green is experimental enough, seems to have kept the novelty relatively simple outside of its color, eschewing any additional date windows or superfluous dial accents, and letting the unique, deep green-blue look of the piece shine within the traditional style. In this way, the watch is essentially a green-dial encore to the 160th anniversary Carrera released last year, the only obvious difference between the two being today’s green, and 2020’s silver.
As for more of the details on the dial, the sunray look is accented throughout with faux patina, metal, and white accents, and when taken as a whole presents a vintage-inspired style drawing direct queues from the original from 1963. Along the outer edge, an angled chapter ring provides the outline, while applied and lume-dotted markers make up each of the hour positions. Towards the center, a vintage-style Heuer logo is found on one quarter, with a 30-minute counter, running seconds, and 12-hour counter found below it at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock spots, each slightly indented and featuring engine-turned accents. Like the vintage edition, the Green LE also features a pair of partially lume-filled sword hands to count the hours and minutes, the two accompanied by a simpler pointer for the chronograph seconds.
The steel case of the model is as conservative as the dial, albeit without any green accents. Sized at a solid 39-mm, the case follows in the vein of its vintage predecessor at only 3-mm larger, the size increase being an appeal by the brand to a more modernly inclined audience. Yet outside of size, the silhouette is much the same as the vintage edition, complete with pump pushers, sharp lugs, and a thinner bezel, and what appears to be primarily polished finishing throughout with accents of brushing.
Inside the 100-m water resistant case is the TAG Heuer Calibre Heuer 02 Automatic manufacture movement, produced in-house. Notably, the choice of this movement has required the TAG Heuer Carrera copy with black leather strap to adjust the sub-dials on the watch’s dial from the historical accurate positioning to what we see here, but that’s likely to be a deal breaker for many prospective buyers. As for specs, the caliber features an 80-hour power reserve, a column wheel and vertical clutch, and a beat rate of 28,800 vph, overall serving as a hardy, robust movement well-equipped on the sports focused modern Carrera. The movement is visible with its partially skeletonized rotor via a sapphire exhibition case back, the protective element engraved with “SPECIAL EDITION” marking the green-blue novelty.
