Carrera is a cornerstone of the TAG Heuer brand and one of former CEO Jack Heuer’s finest achievements. 2020 marks the 160th anniversary of TAG Heuer, which is already a very important year for Carrera. TAG Heuer has released a new replica TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph 44 mm Calibre Heuer02 Automatic (ref. CBN2A1A.BA0643) to mark the anniversary.
Case & Dial
The rich blue visage of this replica TAG Heuer Carrera carries that same tangible weight of color — stretched from the perimeter of its full ceramic tachymeter bezel outer, across the very cool matte textured chapter ring bezel to the cheerful sunburst center, every layer bearing its own finish to create a symphony of blue tones that jump alive on the wrist. Furthermore, nearly every surface on the watch’s dial has either a specific texture, an indentation, a bevel, or a snailed recess, creating a visually dynamic and staggeringly detailed execution that’s rarely seen at this price point. Perhaps most importantly, though, the visual updates have done little to diminish the Carrera’s legibility and sporty character as a modern driving watch.
In a strange way, the TAG Heuer Carrera Sport watch copy feels a little bit like the Tesla. It’s a quantum leap forward, no doubt, but it got here by going back to the basics — timekeeping and locomotion, each openly acknowledging the analog past while warmly embracing a technological future. Past iterations of the Carrera tried to do this but used skeletonized dials, dramatic forged carbon cases, and cutting-edge Nanograph technology of TAG Heuer’s own engineering — all great innovations in their respective rights but bombastic in their approach, and arguably quite niche in the scope of their appeal.
The replica TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph 44mm Calibre Heuer 02 Automatic comes in four variations that range from a classic black dial and black tachymeter bezel version to more color-forward options that pair a green dial with a steel tachymeter bezel or a blue dial with a blue ceramic tachymeter bezel. These three versions all come with a new H-shaped link bracelet, which reinforces their sporty vibe. The bracelets are thinner and slightly lighter than previous versions, and this promises a more ergonomic wearing experience. They’re joined by a fourth option (above) that trades the bracelet for an alligator strap while pairing a black ceramic bezel with a black dial. The more dressy vibe is driven home by its 18-karat 5N gold crown and pushers and gold-plated dial furniture. The cases of all four examples have short lugs, which should also enhance comfort; the alternating polished and fine-brushed finishes are intended to make the new Carrera appear sleeker and thinner too.
TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph replica is powered by the in-house calibre Heuer o2. The 168 components movement is entirely Swiss made in the brand’s Chevenez manufacture.
The movement boasts a generous power reserve of 80 hours. That means you can enjoy an entire extended weekend at the races without taking care of winding (by moving or winding).
The watch beats at 4Hz and has a single barrel design. As architecture, Heuer 02 uses a column wheel and a vertical clutch system.
