Increased in size from 43mm to 44mm, this newest Fake Tag Heuer Carrera generation retains the chiseled exterior of its many predecessors, though Bove ensured that its overall wearability was improved through the use of a thinner case footprint and shorter lugs.
The rich blue visage of this 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.
Past iterations of the Tag Heuer Replica 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 Fake Cal. 02 Carrera Sport keeps things relatively traditional, with 30-minute and 12-hour totalizers on lap timekeeping duty. The date aperture has also been moved to a more visually appealing position at 6 o’clock, where it’s nestled inside the running seconds counter. Everything is where it should be — cleanly defined, readily legible, and supremely classic.
