The TAG Heuer Carrera Porsche Chronograph uses a 44mm stainless steel case, which is the same as the 44mm “regular” sports chronograph. This makes sense, because the updated 2020 Carrera is indeed very refined. It consists of a highly polished and finely brushed surface. The latter makes the former more prosperous. Both types of finishes are placed in close proximity and therefore require a lot of time and skill to achieve. Indeed, each finish must maintain a clear outline and remain discrete. I am happy to report to you that TAG Heuer commends it not only for its ability to complete all tasks, but also for its unparalleled appearance on all surfaces, facets and sides.
The lugs are beautifully designed. At its outer edge, they slope down to the strap. It is not unique in itself, but has a sloped inner edge that slopes toward the strap or bracelet. This would have incurred additional processing costs, but in my opinion, the resulting aesthetic appearance is sublime.
The chronograph buttons have a winch-like outline, and the concave central part is invisible black shadow.
As mentioned earlier, the origin of the hour and minute hands can be traced back to Monaco in 1969. Likewise, the crown is very similar to that used in the popular Formula One racing car. The grooved grip of the Carrera crown is cut through a channel, presenting a refreshing shade of red.
A sapphire crystal glass window on the back of the watch gives an unobstructed view of the self-winding movement. There is a bright halo around the glass window. In addition, the bottom surface of the lug is highly polished again.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Porsche Chronograph comes with the company’s “H-shaped bracelet.” Consistent with other bracelets of the brand, its execution is excellent. Folding clasp and double safety buttons first appeared on Carrera in 2020, with sweet and positive actions that left a deep impression on people, strong and tight.
In addition, the watch can also be paired with an embossed calfskin strap, presented in black with eye-catching gray stitching. The appearance of the strap is similar to the stitched leather seat of the 911, where two pieces of leather are joined together by a protruding seam.
Finally, I deliberately saved one of my favorite details in the frame. It is made of black ceramic, fixed and marked with white numbers. It is used as a tachymeter and is very useful for observers by the track. However, unlike the regular Carrera, the word “Porsche” is replaced by “Porsche”. It is presented in the font of the car logo and the preferred shade of red.
The Swiss watch brand equips the fake TAG Heuer Carrera Porsche chronograph with the Calibre Heuer 02 movement. Recently, it has become a Swiss brand chronograph movement. This is not surprising, because it is great. Please allow me to elaborate.
Many chronographs are modular, including the basic movement and the top module, Caliber Heuer 02 is fully integrated. Not modified to meet requirements, Heuer 02 has always been designed as a chronograph. By adopting this method, “dragging” can be reduced. When the modular chronograph is activated, the additional energy requirement causes the amplitude of the balance wheel to decrease (drag), thereby reducing accuracy.
In addition, with the help of an integrated timer, the column wheel and vertical coupling proved the best match. Compared with the cam-actuated chronograph, the button feels better and the lubrication effect is smooth. Similarly, when the chronograph is started, the central chronograph second hand immediately starts its stroke without any movement.
The frequency of the balance is 28,800 vph (4Hz), and assuming that the clockwork is fully wound, the watch will automatically run for 80 hours. The column wheels are represented in red, and the bridge body is decorated with Côtes de Genève patterns. Finally, the weight design of the pendulum is similar to the appearance of a Porsche three-spoke steering wheel.sale replica watches
Last year, TAG Heuer released the new 44mm Carrera Sport chronograph, followed by the 42mm Carrera Elegant chronograph, which marked a new era for the brand. I have always admired the old Carrera models for their legendary readability, and today’s Carrera version contains countless pleasant little details. All these details are perfectly blended together, enriching the wearer’s experience.
The watch company’s design team has apparently spent a lot of energy evaluating Carrera’s per square millimeter and refining each component to a high standard. These new models are impressive, and I doubt they will remain attractive in the next few years.
However, the new TAG Heuer Carrera Porsche Chronograph may be my favorite racing-themed car so far, perhaps because it evokes my memories of the 911 moments. The gray asphalt dial looks amazing, the two-digit index is very attractive, and the Porsche brand bezel is another highlight. However, as most 911 owners have proven, a powerful engine is the key to performance. Rest assured, Caliber Heuer 02 is the champion. This latest watch deserves to be printed with the names of two outstanding brands and hopes to herald what is coming.
