During the introduction of the TAG Heuer replica Carrera CH80, both dial configurations were shown to us. The high-contrast color combination of black and white on the dial with the sporty looking red accents makes the new TAG Heuer replica Carrera CH80 a very attractive TAG Heuer replica watch in our opinion. The perforated racing strap, that comes close to the design of the original leather Carrera straps, is made with a red lining, matching the red details on the dial.
Where the base design was kept as close to the original Carrera as possible, the case diameter has ‘matured’ to a more time-correct 41 mm. Although I personally, and as an owner of a late 1990s re-edition of the 35 mm TAG Heuer replica Carrera CS3110, would have opted for a bit more modest increase of the case diameter. The added date is a new feature and, with its position at 4:30 o’clock, leaves the original layout untouched.
The new TAG Heuer Carrera CH80 features an in-house manufactured movement. Made in the Chevenez (in the Swiss Jura region) workshop and has an impressive 80-hour power reserve. These two facts were the key components for the naming of this movement – the CH80 – which measures just 6.5 millimetres in thickness and consists of no less than 233 parts in total.
The new TAG Heuer replica Carrera CH80 will also be available on a metal bracelet.
