Hands-on Tag Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph 44mm Calibre Heuer 02 Automatic Replica

These four new watches are different variants of the Tag Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph 44mm Calibre Heuer 02 Automatic replica CBN2A5A.FC6481.

As part of the 160th anniversary celebration of TAG Heuer, TAG Heuer released four new flagship models. These four new watches are different variants of the Tag Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph 44mm Calibre Heuer 02 Automatic replica CBN2A5A.FC6481. This new model is based on the brand’s iconic 1963 racing chronograph “Carrera” and has been updated with modern style and performance.

The Dial

TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph replica comes in four dial variants. There is a black brushed dial with matching black bezel, blue brushed dial with matching blue bezel and for something a little different, a muted olive green dial with a stainless-steel bezel. We had the opportunity to go hands on with the fourth variant; the 18K 5N rose gold edition.

Before we get into the specifics of the rose gold, it should be noted that the main changes between the other three variations are dial and bezel colour. All three variations include Rhodium-plated central hand, Rhodium plated TAG HEUER applied logo, Rhodium plated hour indexes and also the hour and minute hands with white superluminova. 

The TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph replica in 18K 5N rose gold features a 44mm steel fine-brushed/polished case with a black ceramic bezel. The crown and chronograph pushers on the case are made from 18K 5N solid pink gold. The case also has a water resistance of 100m.

A 44mm case size is ideal for this new Carrera model, as any smaller and the features shown on the dial can start to get a little overcrowded. I think personally the 18k 5N rose gold is the pick of the four different variations. The different colour variations on the watch come together nicely to make it aesthetically pleasing and very easy on the eye. 18k 5N rose gold accents are shown aplenty on the dial. 

The hour, minute, chronograph seconds hands, as well as the chronograph counter hands, all use the material. The Tag Heuer logo at 12 o’clock along with the applied hour indexes all use 18K 5N rose gold as well. This is rounded off nicely with the tachymeter scale on the bezel being done in the same material. The white Superluminova on the hands and hour indexes add the extra colour and makes the legibility of the dial easier thanks to the direct contrast against the black dial. 

The TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph 44mm Calibre Heuer 02 Automatic replica features a simple tri-counter layout. Firstly we have a 30 minute counter at 3 o’clock position, a constant second counter at 6 o’clock and 12 hour counter at 9 o’clock position. A simple date window is also added just above the 6 o’clock hour marker. 

The Case

This particular 18k 5N rose gold model features a black alligator leather strap and a steel folding clasp that matches the watch perfectly. The alligator strap really makes the watch perfect for formal/formal wear, as the watch will undoubtedly bring a certain class. From a distance, the rose gold accents throughout the watch stand out and give this watch a very striking look.

The case measures 44mm, which can be quite large for some wrist sizes, but we found it to fit very well on a 6.5 inch wrist. This is thanks to the short lugs on this new model that prevent the watch from overstretching on the wrist. 

As mentioned, the three stainless steel models are fitted with an integrated steel bracelet that is thinner and lighter, and closed with a steel folding clasp with double safety push-buttons. The steel-and-gold version comes with a dressier black alligator strap and a steel folding clasp. 

The Movement

The movement used inside the TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph 44mm replica is as the name suggests the brands performance-driven Heuer 02 movement. The Heuer 02 movement was initially released in 2017 as an upgrade from the predecessor movement Heuer 01, which was released in 2009. The Heuer 02 movement was designed to be a thinner movement than the Heuer 01 movement.

It was also made to have a more significant power reserve whilst retaining the same precision as the predecessor. The new movement also has a frequency of 4Hz (28, 800 Vph) and the power reserve has increased 30 hours from the Heuer 01 movement to a total of approximately 80 hours for the Heuer 02 movement. To showcase this, Tag Heuer made a bold choice to add ‘Heuer 02 80 hours’ on the dial at 6 ‘clock.
