In September last year, on the occasion of the 160th anniversary of the establishment of the brand, TAG Heuer launched the new replica Carrera chronograph. There are a total of four models in this series. The new series of watches is derived from the original racing chronograph. Design inspiration, restoring its elegant and classic design, combining it with modern style and reinterpreting it with modern watchmaking technology. Today, I will give you a detailed introduction to the 2020 TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph 42mm black dial replica CBN2010.BA0642 in this series, let us enjoy it below.
The Newcomer shares the same basic case design as the replica TAG Heuer Carrera Sport, but in a smaller 42mm diameter. What this means is a case that keeps the traditional replica Carrera look, but with re-profiled lugs that flow around the case and a slimmer, re-profiled mid-section.
The result is a case with thickness of 14.4mm, meaningfully less than the outgoing watch, which was 15.9mm. The 160 Years Silver replica and Montreal editions are 14.7mm, despite being 39mm diameter cases.
The reduced thickness makes the 1mm increase in diameter easier to accept- but yes, it would have been even better if TAG Heuer had held the case dimensions at 41mm, but we can live with the increase, which really isn’t noticeable on the wrist.
The black opal dial of the new TAG Heuer Carrera watch copy has 3 sub-discs. Unlike the three round sub-discs of the original watch, TAG Heuer has incorporated a new design for it, the horizontal layout of the two chronograph sub-dials are also reminiscent of the bi-compax layout of the 1963 Carrera replica (the first Carrera had a small seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock and a 45-min elapsed time sub-dial at 3 o’clock). Instead of housing the small seconds in a prominent third sub-dial (altering the configuration from a bi-compax layout to a tri-compax layout) this indicator, with just two horizontal markings at 3 and 9 and hand, is expressed with extreme subtlety and even houses the discreet date window just above the 6 o’clock marker.
The rhodium-plated hour and minute hands of the watch are coated with white Super-LumiNova fluorescent paint, and the overall disc surface also conforms to the design concept of the original watch, so that the racer can clearly distinguish the time with a single stroke when driving the vehicle.
The performance-driven Heuer 02, TAG Heuer’s in-house chronograph movement appeared in 2017 boasting a thinner movement and an increased power reserve over the Heuer 01 movement of 2009. A modern calibre with integrated architecture, Heuer 02 has a column wheel and a vertical clutch, a combination that ensures a smooth and accurate run of the chronograph. Beating at a 4Hz frequency, it can store up to 80 hours of power. Another advantage over the Heuer 01 is the more elegant and legible 3-6-9 layout of the counters. The movement can be seen through the sapphire glass with its openworked rose gold-coloured rotor.
The 2020 TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph 42mm replica with black and blue dials come on a streamlined stainless steel bracelet with rounded links for a more fluid appearance and a clasp with double safety push-buttons. The models with silver and anthracite dials are paired with a classic brown alligator strap, making them slightly dressier than the bracelet versions.
