Hands On: TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 43mm Black Watch Replica

TAG Heuer, one of the most recognized names when it comes to motorsports inspired watches. Carrera is a model family that deserves not only mine but all watch enthusiasts’ respect by being a major part of Heuer’s 150-year history. The success of the brand mostly with its sporty models makes it one of the first brands that come to mind when it comes to chronograph watches. Today, we have the opportunity to review the values of the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 Men’s Watch replica (Ref. CV2A84.FC6394) here.

The Case

The new TAG Heuer Carrera watch fake model comes in a 43mm diameter Grade 2 titanium case that is equipped with a bright black ceramic bezel. It is good thing to know that the frontal look of the model will keep its brand new look for years due to the scratch-resistant nature of ceramic. The sapphire display case back is also made of black PVD coated titanium like the case. The domed front sapphire crystal is double AR coated which guarantees a legible dial even under intense light. The case is water resistant to 100 meters.

The Dial

This latest TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 replica presents all information on a sea of black. Thanks to the vintage looking Super LumiNOVA phosphor material applied, the dial offers two different but beautiful images are captured in both day and night. The hour and minute hands are lined with beige SuperLuminonva and pronounce time with clear tone. Arabic numerals sans serifs indicate the hours. Interestingly, ‘5’ is presented in double digit form i.e. ’05’ . This provides a notable cohesion to the dial layout.

At 6 o’clock, a 12-hour chronograph register resides. A black applied ring encircles the subdial, accentuating the information presented and augmenting ease of read off. 

The Movement

The model is powered by the Caliber 16 which is based on the famous ETA Valjoux 7750 movement as careful readers would already notice due to the dial lay-out. 21 jewels self-winding chronograph movement beats at a frequency 4Hz (28.800vph) and offers a power reserve of 42 hours in addition to its day and date indicators. 

Summary

The model comes on a soft and comfortable aged calf leather strap that is secured by a TAG Heuer signed folding clasp made of black PVD coated titanium. The strap offers a comfortable use on average and above sized wrists. I think, TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 watch replica CV2A84.FC6394 is a noteworthy model with its beautifully arranged color palette and relatively accessible price tag.
