The TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 02 Chronograph Replica Watches comes exclusively in a 43mm wide case – note that there will be a 45mm version with a GMT function that TAG Heuer hints at in their press release, but doesn’t tell us more for the time being. Rumor has it, the new Heuer 02 will replace the 43mm Heuer-01, while the 45mm Heuer-01 will continue to live on.
It’s not just any chronograph though. It has all the goodies you’d want these days from a properly modern mechanical chronograph, namely a column wheel and, more importantly, a vertical clutch. A vertical clutch makes all the difference in the world. Should it be fitted to your Swiss Tag Heuer Replica Watches, you’ll discover that everyone treats you differently, somehow. Your watchmaker gives you a special hug at every service, the waiters invite you to the best table at the restaurant, the sun always shines, your childhood friends reach out to you again, and so on.
As far as looks are concerned, the Best Tag Heuer Replica Watches now features a 3-6-9 sub-dial layout, unlike the 6-9-12 of the Heuer 01. Although the sub-dials are close together in the 31mm wide movement, they appear to reach just enough into the 3-6-9 indices to not make the case appear too large or the movement underneath too small… And yet, I personally would still love to see a new Carrera somewhere around the ~40mm range, give or take a little.
The 43mm wide case carries on Tag Heuer Replica Watches modular construction where the lugs and the middle of the case are separate pieces, allowing for some mix-and-match to happen, as it does with the partially gold piece with the black PVD steel case band, black ceramic bezel, and 18k 5N rose gold lugs. The case of every TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 02 is water-resistant to 100m, as it should be.
Although TAG Heuer goes on about the Carrera’s long-standing – 55-year-long, in fact – connection with motor sports, I can’t really see that much motor sportiness in this Heuer 02 line. What it is, is a cool-looking, competitively priced, refreshing watch, perhaps arguably for a younger generation of buyers.
