We were actually the first to debut the watch, and I recall at the time being very impressed with a watch that clearly took equal inspiration from the iconic design of the TAG Heuer Carrera and the modern materials and design elements of the automotive world. OK, so that was in 2011, but once again, in 2014, TAG Heuer Carrera MP4 replica watch-12C Chronograph McLaren watch at the Baselworld trade show for us to look at. What is odd about that is that most of the time, watch brands only show new watches at the trade show events.
During our meeting with TAG Heuer at Baselworld 2014, I actually thought that this was a new Carrera McLaren model, but I realized only later that it was the same type of watch as the one I saw more than three years earlier. This was curious not only because it was shown in 2014, but also because it was a limited edition model of 1000 pieces. So what is the deal?
I don’t know how that is going to effect sales of the Carrera MP4-12C watch, but I have a feeling McLaren dealers aren’t going to be thrilled about stocking a timepiece for a car that they either no longer have, or are selling off with any available final inventory. So the story is a bit funny, but the watch is still cool, even though it was initially debuted a few years ago. At the very least the TAG Heuer Carrera MP4-12C is not only handsome, but also very unusual from a collector’s standpoint, when it comes to Carrera watches.
The most “Carrera” part of the watch is the 43mm wide Carrera-style case. However, it is produced in grade 2 titanium, and not steel, like most other Carrera watches. It also has a slightly different looking aluminum bezel insert for the tachymeter scale. The case is sandblasted, which is how grade 2 titanium looks its best, and it is water resistant to 100 meters. The TAG Heuer Carrera MP4-12C also happens to look really nice in pictures.
When it comes to the dial, you can see where TAG Heuer took a total departure from most Carrera watches outside of a familiar font. Pretty much everything else is different, as well as the movement and materials used. The dial is mostly made from a piece of carbon fiber and sapphire crystal – much of which is smoked.
