Crown on the left, pushers on the right. A stainless steel tonneau-shaped case Chinese Replica Tag Heuer with black dial and twin bi-compax white registers, completed by a framed date aperture at 6:00.This special variant embellished the standard 1163 a bit, adding red inserts and red triangle tips to both the brushed steel hour and minute hands.Everything else between the two versions – case, Cal. 11 movement, applied dial markers, etc. was otherwise the same.
TAG Heuer seems to be leaning into the sportier partnership variant for this reissue, but with a few light updates – namely with the bezel, which is a bidirectional 12-hour aluminum bezel with oversized numerals, differing a bit from the original which overlaid both 12-hour and 60-minute scales on the same bezel.
It also borrows the same chunky case silhouette as the other Autavia re-issues that we’ve already seen, measuring 42mm wide and around 17mm thick. Inside beats the Fake Heuer Calibre 02, an automatic column wheel chronograph with 75 hours of power and a 4Hz beat rate.
Since it’s just a twin-register design, the running seconds counter at 6:00 has been omitted, while preserving the 30 minute and 12-hour counters at 3 and 9:00, respectively. The silver-framed date window at 6:00 persists here – and for once, its presence helps balance out the dial, preserving the integrity of the original.
