The Swiss made replica TAG Heuer Carrera is a classic racing chronograph that has been the staple of their catalogue for decades. Carrera references have found a home on the wrists of many drivers throughout the years, some of which were awarded to champions on the circuit. That is why I commend TAG for taking a risk and carbonizing their classic chronograph, and further modernising the aesthetic with an openworked dial. As a result the movement is visible from both the front and back of the watch thanks to its titanium exhibition caseback.
The watch features a carbon-fibre case, bezel and lugs while under the bonnet lurks a caliber HEUER02 automatic movement with 80 hours of power reserve and a column-wheel operated chronograph complication. Sized at 45mm in diameter and water-resistant to 100 metres, the watch is paired with a sporty rubber composite strap fastened by a titanium folding clasp.
