Introducing the TAG Heuer Carrera Green Special Edition 39mm Calibre Heuer 02 Replica

TAG Heuer released a new TAG Heuer Carrera Green Special Edition 39mm Calibre Heuer 02 replica CBK221F.FC6479.

TAG Heuer released a new special edition of Carrera Green. This is a vintage-style limited edition blue-green timepiece that pays homage to the brand’s chronograph tradition. Just one month after TAG released another green watch: TAG Heuer Carrera Green Special Edition 39mm Calibre Heuer 02 replica CBK221F.FC6479, to celebrate the Monaco History Award. Not only can the new Carrera simply reuse the same dégradé dial as Monaco, but it also has a unique appearance with a blue-green or “brown” color. Despite this, TAG Heuer still refers to the watch replica as a “green special edition”, so we also use it with green.

The Case

The replica Carrera Glassbox case is a vintage-styled 39mm case launched in 2015, taking its name from the domed sapphire crystal that gives the watches using this case a 1960s look and feel. The 2021 TAG Heuer Carrera Green replica is the eighth time that we’ve seen a Glassbox chronograph, and we love all eight of these watches. Other than the very first TAG Heuer re-editions from 1996, the Glassbox series are the most true to the look and spirit of the original 1960s Carreras.

What sets the 2021 Glassbox apart from its siblings is the dial- a totally fresh look for the Carrera (there was no Green first-generation 1960s Carrera). It’s not the same green dial as offered on the Green-dial Formula 1, nor the green Aquaracer, nor the green-dial Monaco- it’s a unique dial for this watch only.

The Dial

What’s new this year is the dial, well its colour to be precise. The whole design is, just like the case, intended to be as close as possible to the spirit of early models, with the sleek style of the 2447. This means a dial without tachymeter, without date, without modern applied logo… The essential only. The sober tricompax dial only displays the time and the chronograph, and all the elements are made to make its use simple and legible. The watch features applied baton indexes and hands with a rhodium-plated and polished surface, and the simple “Heuer-only” logo and “Carrera” name are found at 12 o’clock.

For this 2021 TAG Heuer Carrera Green Special Edition replica, the brand has selected a surprising colour, named teal, with a blue-green hue. Fresh and creative, yet relatively subtle in most conditions, it is paired with a sunray-brushed pattern that makes the colour more vibrant in sunlight. The sub-dials are snailed to detach from the rest of the dial. The watch is worn on a classic (too classic maybe) black alligator strap closed by a steel folding clasp with safety buttons.

The Movement

Under a sapphire caseback is the brand’s classic in-house Heuer 02 movement. A modern integrated architecture, it features a column wheel and a vertical clutch. This movement, which powers most of the brand’s higher-end chronographs, is built to be robust and offers an extended power reserve of 80 hours. Through the caseback, it shows a blackened oscillating weight as well as teal-coloured touches on the inscriptions and the column wheel.

The Price

The replica TAG Heuer Carrera Green Special Edition 39mm Calibre Heuer 02 (ref. CBK221F.FC6479) is a limited edition of 500 pieces. It will be priced at EUR 6,300, CHF 6,500, USD 6,650 or GBP 5,500.

Hands-on TAG Heuer Carrera x Fragment Design Calibre Heuer 02 Automatic Chronograph Replica

TAG Heuer Carrera x Fragment Design Calibre Heuer 02 Automatic Chronograph replica CAZ201A.BA0641 is a contradictory table.

Following the launch of the minimalist Carrera model in 2018, TAG Heuer launched a new watch in 2020 that not only looks great, but is also likely to become a trailer for a new permanent racing style watch. TAG Heuer Carrera x Fragment Design Calibre Heuer 02 Automatic Chronograph replica CAZ201A.BA0641 is a contradictory table. This is not a reversion, nor a new design. It looks like Autavia, but in fact, it is part of the extended Formula One family.

DESIGN

Hiroshi Fujiwara is an internationally renowned Japanese streetwear designer, influencer, musician and founder of Fragment Design. He’s also a watch lover and has been working with TAG Heuer since 2018, to create special edition watches infused with its unique sense of design, mixing boldness and minimalism.

The first watch resulting from this collaboration was based on a Carrera, fitted with a minimalistic black dial and discreet connection with the brand Fragment. Not only the watch was stunning in terms of design, but it was also the base for the Silver and Montreal editions to come next. And for 2020, both brands are teaming up again and bring an unprecedented watch, which isn’t based on something existing yet in the permanent collection.

CASE

Certainly, this new TAG Heuer Carrera 44mm Chronograph replica will feel familiar to Heuer and TAG fans. Arguably, its shape and design are somehow close to both vintage watches or existing models. Yes, the mechanics inside the case aren’t new and have been used in multiple TAGs already. And yes, there’s an undeniable motorsport inspiration in this watch, and that’s not a surprise for a TAG Heuer. However… the combination of all these elements is not something we’ve seen before. This second TAG Heuer x Fragment Design watch replica is new and not just a different colour on an existing watch. That’s already quite interesting.

The base for this new TAG Heuer x Fragment Design Chronograph replica CAZ201A.BA0641 is named the “C-case”, a large and robust tonneau-shaped block of steel that easily refers to 1970s Autavia watches – specifically, the third generation ref. 1163. Indeed, we find here the typical pilot’s case with integrated lugs and highly raised bezel on top of the watch. Almost entirely brushed, the case, as some would have remarked, is also in line with the current Formula 1 watches, yet larger and built with more details (polished bevel on the side) but also more robustness… Maybe you can figure out what’ll be coming in the next month at TAG… This watch could easily become the top-tier extension of the F1 range.

The references to the Autavia or the Formula 1 don’t end there. The bezel’s insert, made of polished ceramic, includes a tachymeter scale with the same graduation (70-66-63) and deep notches as glorious 1970s racing models. The right side of the case features the crown, well-protected with guards, and recessed pushers for the chronograph. The screw-down crown and caseback allow for a comfortable 100m water-resistance.

DIAL

Fujiwara’s touch is particularly visible on the dial of this replica TAG Heuer x Fragment Design Chronograph, which has been treated in a very minimalistic way – which mostly comes down to the absence of applied hour markers, creating strong negative space on the dial. This bi-compax chronograph plays on monochromatic tone – black and white – only with red accents on the markers and hands. A discreet “Fragment” inscription is found between 4 and 5 o’clock, as well as the two brands’ logos at 12 o’clock.

There’s something really special to this dial, and even though simplistic and flat, it has a great personality. Legibility is also perfect in daylight, while slightly compromised during the night – only the hands feature SLN. 

The watch is delivered on a new 5-link steel bracelet, with polished and brushed surfaces. As a personal note, I could easily see this watch worn on a 1970s-inspired perforated black leather strap, just to reinforce its classic appeal – and to make it more comfortable too, as the case is quite large and heavy.

CASEBACK

The back of the watch offers two surprises. The first is the red sapphire caseback. It looks fantastic and should become a signature of the Fragment X TAG Heuer replica series. In fact, we wished that the Fragment Carrera had the same bright red treatment as a contrast to its sober, monochrome dial.

The second surprise is the movement- the first time that TAG Heuer has fitted the Heuer 02 movement to the Formula 1 case, but we’d guess not the last time, given the cost of engineering a new case/ movement combination. The choice of the Heuer 02 was an inspired one, as it would have been very easy to simply use the standard Calibre 16 movement- but what makes the Fragment Heuer 02 special is the number of changes- including the movement- that set this model apart from the rest of the Formula 1 range.

It’s also worth noting that this is the second TAG Heuer replica model using the Heuer 02 movement to have only two-registers. There is no 6 o’clock register with running seconds, as you’ll find on the Monaco and Carrera watches using the same movement.

BRACELET

The bespoke theme continued with the bracelet, with a unique design that is a modern twist on the vintage bracelet fitted to the Autavia and again a design that is only available on this watch. Like the new 2020 Monaco bracelet, this new bracelet reference BA0641 uses a butterfly clasp and has alternate polished and brushed links.

PRICE

The TAG Heuer x Fragment Design Calibre Heuer 02 Automatic Chronograph replica is a limited edition of 500 pieces and it is priced at CHF 6,000. More information, please visit our latest replica Tag Heuer watch listing, we are the largest and most reliable replica of luxury watches store, copy watches such as Rolex, Patek Phillippe, Panerai, Cartier, Hublot, IWC and more.

The TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph 44mm Calibre Heuer 02 Automatic Watch Replica

Now, the Swiss brand is taking the process a step further by bringing four new vintage models powered by the Heuer 02 to the regular production lineup. TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph 44mm Calibre Heuer 02 automatic watch replica series is likely to form the backbone of the high-end Carrera range

The 160th anniversary of TAG Heuer is now over 2020, and for the The Carrera was launched in 1963 and was one of Jack’s most important projects. So far, we have seen two limited editions influenced by history – the Carrera 160 Years! Silver Limited Edition and Carrera 160 Years Montreal Limited Edition – it seems Totally aimed at the enthusiast watch collector. Now, the Swiss brand is taking the process a step further by bringing four new vintage models powered by the Heuer 02 to the regular production lineup. TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph 44mm Calibre Heuer 02 automatic watch replica series is likely to form the backbone of the high-end Carrera range, combining old-fashioned glamour with total The modern dimensions and powerplant come together perfectly.

44mm Case

While the 44mm case design of these new replica TAG Heuer Carrera watches is instantly recognizable as a Carrera, the proportions have been altered throughout to reflect changing tastes. The trademark Carrera beveled lugs are shortened, featuring a more dramatic inward taper than previous iterations. The tachymeter bezels also receive a rework in ceramic, bringing these models in with the competition at this price range, although for the green dial model a more retro stainless steel treatment. In addition to the three core variants in stainless steel, a fourth two tone model is also available with an 18k rose gold crown and matching pushers. A sapphire display caseback finishes off the new design, while still allowing for a decent 100 meters of water resistance. While the slightly altered Carrera shape balances handsomely between vintage and modern cues, the sheer size of this case is something of a potential stumbling block. Even with shorter lugs, 44mm is undeniably beefy, which may turn off some potential buyers. It’s difficult not to imagine this design working far better at around 42mm or even 40mm.

The new dials

I’m a big fan of circular graining on a dial (I like how it draws the eye to the center point of the display) and I think it has been well-deployed here. I particularly like the way the raised indices slope towards the middle of the dial, accentuating the focal point while also providing nice depth in contrast to the domed sapphire crystal.

A 6 o’clock date window is a subtle addition and the sub-dials retain the legibility for which they are known. The hour counter sits at 9 o’clock, the sub-register at 3 shows the chronograph minutes, and the 6 o’clock sub-dial houses the going seconds hand.

Calibre Heuer 02

Naturally, the TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph 44mm Calibre Heuer 02 Automatic watch replica is powered by the in-house Heuer 02 automatic chronograph movement. This is the movement’s first appearance in a classically styled regular production Carrera, but the technical specs remain the same from previous, more specialized offerings. This vertical clutch, column wheel-equipped powerplant boasts a massive 80 hour power reserve at a smooth 28,800 bph beat rate.

The base dial designs of the new replica TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph Automatic models are timeless reinterpretations of the core Carrera layout, with large applied rectangular indices, faceted baton hands with a central contrast stripe in black, and snailed chronograph subdials sitting slightly below the main dial level. The sunburst finishes help to inject life into these traditional elements, providing a dynamic and coarsely brushed surface that adds a sense of rugged sportiness. The black sunburst is naturally the most conservative and versatile of the bunch, followed by a slightly desaturated medium blue, but the real winner of the collection is the verdant British racing green dial. While green dials are becoming more common in certain niches of watchmaking, the racing chronograph segment has yet to see many models in the color. It’s an immediately eye-catching tone, one that demands attention without being ostentatious, and immediately sets this new model apart from other entries in TAG Heuer’s catalog.

The three models without gold accents will set you back $5,750, and two of these come with stationary ceramic bezels that look like real quality in the supplied press images from TAG Heuer. To me, the blue and the black steel models on bracelets are the best lookers in the new Carrera lineup, though I also think there is something a bit low-key about the green number with a plain steel bezel. (CBN2A10.BA0643, CBN2A1A.BA0643, and CBN2A1B.BA0643: $5,750; CBN2A5A.FC6481: $6,550)
