Back in January 2020, as the first watch presented by the brand in this new year, TAG Heuer Replica introduced a pretty big watch… Really, the kind of watch that, at first sight, has all the elements to become a classic.
TAG Heuer introduced several watches paying tribute to early Carrera models. There was, for instance, the beautiful Carrera Calibre 18 Chronograph Telemeter and recently the Carrera Fragment made with streetwear designer Hiroshi Fujiwara.
The reason why it was necessary to mention the Fragment watch is simple. The new Tag Heuer Carrera 160 Silver Replica shares most of its specifications with this watch, including the case and the movement, yet with a different dial. And the result is extremely pleasant.
The case of this Carrera 160 Years Silver is, first of all, reasonably sized – which isn’t always the case with modern Tag Heuer Replica watches, often in the 42mm range or plus. Here, we have a classic Carrera steel case with a 39mm diameter.
These are classic chronograph proportions. Yet, with a restrained diameter, this gives the impression of a higher case than usual. Not particularly disturbing, admittedly, but just something to be aware of. The watch is worn on a black alligator strap with a steel folding clasp.
Apart from the vintage Heuer logo, the Carrera mention or the Swiss inscription, nothing disturbs the elegance of this classic Fake Tag Heuer Carrera look. From the hands to the sub-dials, the indexes or the track, everything has been designed with the old ref. 2447 in mind. Some light and discreet touches of fauxtina have been added on the hands and the hour markers – for a touch of vintage cool.
