The stainless steel case of the TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph Special Replica is carried over more or less verbatim from the standard production Carrera Sport Chronograph series. While the 44mm case size sounds hefty on paper, the short lugs and clever case side geometry help this case to wear far smaller than the numbers suggest.
The ceramic tachymeter bezel, rendered in black or navy blue depending on the dial variant, is also carried over. The sapphire display caseback gains a special limited edition serial number engraving, but keeps the standard Replica Carrera Sport Chronograph’s 100 meters of water resistance.
The Tag Heuer Replica mirrors this signature touch with a 12 o’clock date window of its own, and looks to further emulate vintage Carreras with its panda dial layout and host of subtle vintage inspired touches.
The red accents and de-emphasized funning seconds subdial of the Tag Heuer Replica Watch white dial version are echoed here, but this blue dial model changes the overall balance of the dial thanks to its sharply contrasting white rehaut.
