TAG Heuer Replica unveiled the new Formula 1 Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Special Edition 2020.
A 43-mm brushed steel case with large, polished pump pushers, a screw-down crown protected by subtle crown guards, and a fixed, toothed aluminum bezel featuring an enlarged blue tachymetric scale with silver and red accents.
On the Tag Heuer Replica Watch blue dial we see a simple outer minute ring, with applied hour markers that vary in length depending upon their intersection with other dial elements.
Inside the new special edition is the Ronda 5040D movement, which is used for all quartz chronograph models in the Formula 1 series. The Tag Heuer Replica movement is protected behind a solid, screw-down caseback with a special Aston Martin Red Bull Racing engraving, while the entire watch is secured to the wrist using a brushed steel bracelet with a folding clasp that uses a double safety feature and a driving extension.
Among the multiple icons in watchmaking, when it comes to chronographs, Replica TAG Heuer holds a special place in collector’s hearts, with models such as the Autavia, the Monaco, the Camaro and, of course, the Carrera.
The new model, the Carrera 160 Years Silver Edition, shares a lot with the recently presented and much-applauded TAG Heuer Carrera Replica Watch. Same case, same movement, same overall appearance but a different dial, in this case, a dial that pays tribute to the original silver Carrera from 1963.
In terms of shape, the new Fake TAG Heuer Carrera 160 Years keeps all the attributes of the original design of the Carrera. This means flat flanks, a thin polished and bevelled bezel, which is fixed and flat, pump pushers and an unprotected crown and, of course, the signature faceted lugs so typical of the model.
The Tag Heuer Replica watch is worn on a classic black alligator strap – even though a more casual strap would have made the watch even cooler.
The original Tag Heuer Carrera Replica had a number of key features. Heuer constructed the model with a diamond polished stainless steel 36mm case, giving it a bright finish. It had prominent beveled lugs reminiscent of the brand’s 1940s chronographs.
The dial layout was clean and straightforward, particularly compared to other chronographs at the time. It featured thin, beveled baton hour markers and fifth-of-a-second calibrations on the ring around the Tag Heuer Replica dial. Of course, it also came equipped with three registers.
However, it’s worth noting the Carrera didn’t have contrasting registers. Instead, the dial color was completely uniform. Finally, inside it housed a Valjoux 72 movement.
It was nearly an exact replication of the Fake Tag Heuer Watch with the same dial layout and measurements. The reissue even went so far as to place the original Heuer logo on the dial. However, there were two key differences.
