First introduced in 1972, the Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7 was developed in response to the original 911’s flagging performance in racing competition. This “race car for the road” instantly revitalized the 911’s reputation in Group 4 sports car racing, while reinventing the 911 platform as one of the most effective roadgoing performance cars on Earth – complete with the now-iconic Carrera side stripe and ducktail spoiler. The new Popular TAG Heuer Carrera x Porsche RS 2.7 Replica line combines the familiar Carrera silhouette with clean, sporting new colorways, alongside racy and distinctive touches that immediately set these models apart from the pack.
The line’s signature inwardly faceted lugs, narrow polished smooth bezel, and robust piston-style pushers should all be familiar to fans of the brand here, but the Swiss Tag Heuer Replica Watches sets itself apart on the 9 o’clock case side. The stainless steel model takes the bolder approach of the pair, with a lacquered accent stripe in vibrant blue running from lug to lug.It’s a vivid and unapologetically bold addition that might not serve everyone’s tastes, but the positioning on the 9 o’clock side helps to hide this design from most angles, particularly when wearing long sleeves.
TAG Heuer does add matching blue accents to the crown and 10 o’clock pusher, which help to give the design a bit more visual punch when viewed from different angles. By contrast, the rose gold variant offers a subtler, more refined variation on the theme. Rather than lacquering the stripe onto the case side, the brand instead engraves the stripe directly into the case itself. Coupled with the contrasting brushed finish inside the engraved segment, this technique gives the case a wealth of visual depth, markedly adding to the sense of overall quality on the wrist. Like the standard Carrera, Best Tag Heuer Replica Watches fits these models with sapphire display casebacks and rates them for a solid 100 meters of water resistance.
For the stainless steel model, TAG Heuer continues the case’s blue motif, with pops of cobalt blue against an optic white opaline base dial. Accents like the contrast ring surrounding the applied indices, the blue outer minutes scale, and the blue central seconds hand give this design a more sporting character than the standard 42mm highest quality Carrera Replica Watches, but it’s the 3 o’clock chronograph minutes subdial that steals the show on the wrist. The raised outer scale is strikingly simple and graphic here, with alternating one-minute blocks of blue and white forming the full 30-minute register.
The addition of azurage to the center of the subdials at both 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock helps to visually break up the broad negative space of the main dial surface, while also lending a greater sense of complexity to the overall design. Like the standard Carrera, the Carrera x Porsche RS 2.7 downplays its 6 o’clock running seconds subdial, reducing it to a minimalist crosshair pattern intersected by the 6 o’clock date window.
TAG Heuer equips the Carrera x Porsche RS 2.7 Replica from the best factories in China with its in-house Heuer 02 automatic chronograph movement. The Heuer 02 has become the brand’s de facto flagship movement over the past few years, making its way into the majority of TAG Heuer’s upper-echelon chronograph offerings. The Heuer 02’s performance certainly backs this up, with a hefty 80-hour power reserve at a 28,800 bph beat rate alongside a column wheel and vertical clutch chronograph actuation system.
TAG Heuer fits the two Tag Heuer Carrera x Porsche RS 2.7 Replica with exacty quality with markedly different strap options. The rose gold variant offers a more classical look, pairing the watch to a deep red alligator leather strap with a matching 18K 5N rose gold pin buckle. For the stainless steel model, TAG Heuer instead offers an eye-catching bespoke NATO strap. This strap continues the blue-on-white Carrera stripe theme, complete with unique engraved Porsche-branded hardware. It’s a decidedly casual look, but one that suits the overall design well.
