The new Tag Heuer Carrera Heuer-01 Special Edition Replica Watches share a few elements, like black PVD-coated cases and generous applications of red. While not always the case for co-branded watches, those attracted to the overall look will also need to be pretty ardent Senna fans as his logo and/or name appears on the dial, bezel, and caseback of all the watches. Then, there are the Link-style bracelets – on non-Link-collection watches, of course – that are associated with TAG Heuer watches Senna prominently wore.
With the introduction of a version in ceramic, as well as a welcome 43mm version of the Fake Tag Heuer Carrera Watches, it kind of makes me think we could have had a 43mm version in black ceramic, which would have been cool. Instead, we are back up to a formidable 45mm in black PVD-coated, brushed steel. A domed and anti-reflective-treated sapphire crystal, of course, protects the dial. The dial is horizontally brushed, and it’s cool how the automotive-looking skeletonization pattern incorporates the hour markers.
The Swiss Tag Heuer Watches Carrera Heuer-01 is powered, of course, by TAG’s in-house Heuer-01 movement which we have discussed in detail in previous articles and reviews. It features a column wheel for smoother chronograph operation and runs at 4Hz with a respectable 50 hour power reserve. It’s a good looking movement but you’ll have to try to appreciate it through, once again, the Senna and TAG Heuer logos printed on the sapphire crystal plus the large black PVD rotor – but what did you expect?
The Luxury Tag Heuer Watches are both 43mm wide and feature a minute track on the brushed steel bezels. No “S-link” steel bracelet here, but they come with black and red rubber straps that mimic that look. The Senna logo again appears on the steel casebacks.
