The Grand Carrera series was a major milestone for TAG Heuer Replica, being the first all-new new series released in almost 20 years. Launched in 2007 after four years of development, the Grand Carrera was designed to appeal to an older, more affluent demographic.
The Fake Grand Carrera Calibre 360 was planned to be the flagship of the TAG Heuer range, and a development of the Calibre 360 movement first launched in 2005. The photo above has never been published before, and we thank TAG Heuer for allowing this look into their design vault.
The Grand Carrera Calibre 360 was to have the same basic dial layout as the Tag Heuer Carrera Replica, meaning 60 seconds sweeping time at 3 o’clock; 30-minute chronograph register at 9 o’clock; and 1/ 10th and 100th second chronograph at 6 o’clock. Across the top of the dial is the power reserve for the Chronograph, which must be wound by hand via the crown.
It’s a handsome watch that would have been a worthy successor to the Carrera 360 and flagship to the Best Tag Heuer Replicarange back in 2010/ 11 when this watch would have been launched had development continued.
TAG Heuer launched the Carrera 01, setting a new direction for the famous racing chronograph. The Carrera Heuer-01 Replica is large, somewhat bra and not a sleek, black-and-white look that shows movement through a mostly transparent dial. But today TAG is launching the TAG-01, shrinking it to a slightly higher 43mm.
When I first appeared, I was sure to surprise some people. Few people remind classic TAG Heuer Carrera Replica retro lovers of the 1960s and 1970s, which is a considerable departure from other models such as Carreras of 1887. Nicholas Manousos, our technical editor, talked to the TAG Heuer after the watch debuted for the first time, exploring in depth the very different and special details of the TAG-01.
Our new watch here today is a very TAG Heuer-01 chronograph Replica. They still have a modular housing with 12 parts, and they still have a polished ceramic tachometer border, of course, they still have the TAG Heuer 01 movement inside. No one is changing. Although the change is the scale. The original Cheap Tag Heuer Replica measures 45 mm and so far the rest of the range has been updated. The size of these new models is slightly smaller than 43mm, and I really want to make them penetrate to a whole new audience.
There is no doubt that the 43mm is still very large – these are not violet shrinking – but for more people, this is at least something approachable. I know that many fans of large watches still can not stand the 45 mm case. In other words, these are complements to the series, 45mm models will not go anywhere.
There are six new models in all. Blue steel dial with steel bracelet or blue leather strap, brown dial with steel bracelet or brown leather strap, black dial with steel bracelet or black rubber strap. All three colors have a matching ceramic border and red accents and chronograph hands. One of the reasons for the original 45mm fuselage is to provide a lot of room to watch the hollow movement, and these new 43mm Carrera movement still has enough space.
