In this particular case, it is more a design request than a technical aspect. We thought it could be more different than we can already see on the market and more in line with the brand's car racing DNA such as this would remind a sports car [steering wheel].
It's a good quality watch. It's expensive to design, manufacture, and market a luxury replica watch. Purchasing a TAG Heuer Carrera is considered by some to be a rite of passage. It's a "I've made it" kind of feeling when you can purchase the Carrera. A fake Rolex for others can serve the same purpose.
The first and also the most expensive of the two is in our opinion also the most beautiful. This is a Carrera Heuer with very subtle hints to the British car brand. Where the Tag Heuer Formula-1 Aston Martin special catches the eye, this Carrera is a lot less screaming. It is still a chronograph with a 'shitload' of details, but the color scheme and design make this watch more complete (in our view). The Tag Heuer Carrera Caliber Heuer 01 replica costs $250 and comes with a skeletonised dial (reminiscent of the grille of an Aston Martin) and lugs that reflect the shape of an Aston Martin. The latter, incidentally, requires a somewhat creative look, but - give the animal a name.
The watch comes with a sapphire caseback, so you can watch the clockwork well. The caliber is a fully automatic caliber and has about 50 hours of power reserve. There are also details such as cabinet coated in black PVD and the rubber band that emphasizes the sporty character. Like the Formula-1 version. Admittedly subtly, in the sub-dial at 9 o'clock. The watch measures 45mm in diameter.
What's new about this watch and a first for the Tag Heuer Formula-1 collection, is the fact that the watch is delivered on a leather strap. The Tag Heuer Formula-1 chronograph is considerably cheaper than its Carrera brother. The replica watch costs $135 and comes with a Quartz movement. The watch is a bit smaller than the Carrera, namely 43mm. The case is made of steel and has a subtle finish. According to Tag Heuer, the timepiece itself has an accuracy up to one tenth of the second. What is striking about this watch compared to the other special is the fact that a lot of use has been made of a fluorescent yellow / green color. This makes the watch immediately more than the Carrera does.
As perhaps already became clear in the text above, the Formula-1 version is the most striking - and also the most accessible. The watch has a very sporty character due to the striking design (partly because of the lime color). In addition, it is considerably cheaper than the Tag Heuer Carrera Caliber Heuer 01. For enough people a reason to choose the Formula-1 version. He who prefers something more 'replica watch', will probably choose the Tag Heuer Carrera Caliber Heuer 01 replica. Something for everyone.
