Even at first glance, the green looks very handsome. Makes one wonder why it is not used more often by TAG Heuer replica. But it is here now, and though only one of the many to join the green dial brigade this year, it does well to complement the classical proportions of the Carrera’s case. Made as a tribute to the Heuer Carrera Ref. 2447, the case shape retains the traditional Heuer design. The signature long lugs, faceted with the crease, combine with polished round pushers, a polished sloped bezel and protected by the box sapphire crystal (replacing the plexiglass in the historical model. to complete the vintage vibes. The modest size increase from 36mm to just 39mm shows good restraint, and the new luxury copy TAG Heuer watch is now in the “Goldilocks” just-the-right sized camp.
The original Heuer Carrera 2447 had the Valjoux caliber 72 hand wound movement, but this new iteration carries the Heuer 02 movement which is perhaps fitting as an update to the classic. This is a proven movement with a vertical clutch mechanism controlled by a classical column wheel. A small but nice touch is that the column wheel is anodized in the same hue as the dial.
The aaa quality copy TAG Heuer Carrera collection pays homage to the brand’s motor racing heritage with a line of timeless, sporty and elegant chronographs. Since their introduction more than 60 years ago under the visionary Jack Heuer, these timepieces, with their clean lines and perfect proportions, have become an instantly recognisable icon. And this expertly reworked new edition is a worthy successor to the original 1963 model.
The stainless steel case replica TAG Heuer Carrera Green Special Edition chronograph has in fact plenty in common with the Heuer Carrera ref. 2447. The signature lugs, stylish case, polished push buttons and dial all chime pleasingly with its illustrious predecessor, but the details and broader diameter – enlarged from 36 to 39 mm – bring it right up to date. The dial layout is a tricompax structure with three snailed subdials: a minute chronograph at 3 o’clock, hour chronograph at 9 o’clock and permanent second indicator at 6 o’clock.
The hour and minute hands are faceted and coated with Super-LumiNova® for optimum readability. Behind the retro-style “glass box” domed sapphire crystal, also inspired by the original Heuer Carrera, the dial sports the emblematic Heuer logo and Carrera name.
And last but not least, the new feature that makes this watch stand out from the crowd: the dial’s stunning teal sunray-brushed colour. Rarely featured in TAG Heuer collections, this colour is a subtle blend of blue and green, giving this timepiece a fresh, creative flair and sophisticated boldness. On the caseback, there are touches of teal on the movement’s column wheel and in the “Calibre Heuer 02” and “Swiss Made” inscriptions on the oscillating mass, visible through the transparent case.
The cheap fake TAG Heuer Carrera Green Special Edition features the Calibre Heuer 02 manufacture movement, a cutting-edge automatic chronograph movement made exclusively in Switzerland at the TAG Heuer factory in Chevenez. This movement comprises 168 parts, including a column wheel and vertical clutch – a guarantee of outstanding chronometric performance. It also boasts an impressive 80-hour power reserve.
