While the fake TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 02T is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year, the watch hasn’t lost any of its appeal: it remains, by far, the least expensive Swiss-made chronograph with a flying tourbillon – and it doesn’t show it.
That hasn’t changed with the latest edition of the top quality replica TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 02T, an automatic manufacture movement that is officially C.O.S.C.-chronometer certified and fitted with an ultra-light tourbillon cage made of carbon and titanium.
What has changed is the dial – in that this Carrera Heuer 02T is the first with a dial. TAG Heuer opted for a blue dial with sunray finish. And while I didn’t expect it, it does significantly change the look of the watch. While it is still a rather contemporary creation, the 02T gets a bit of a classic touch, and it suits the watch very well.
TAG Heuer matched the dial with a blue ceramic bezel secured to the titanium case.
Another first for the 45 mm copy TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 02T is that it comes on a titanium bracelet instead of a strap. Again, this is a welcome addition to the collection, and I am curious to learn whether this can also be retrofitted to previous models.
While clone TAG Heuer is limiting the production of this new model to just 250 pieces, I think that we can be fairly certain that the Carrera Heuer 02T will see more dial and bracelet variations in the future.
