Replica TAG Heuer Debuts Matt Black Ceramic Carrera HEUER-01

Under the capable leadership of Jean-Claude Biver, TAG-Heuer is quickly reclaiming the position of being an innovative and creative manufacture, a quality which made them famous in the first place. An important watch to do so is the Carrera HEUER-01. The Carrera has been throughout its history an important model for TAG-Heuer, but the version that was introduced in 2015 not only revamped the watch but was also used to debuted the manufacture caliber HEUER-01. Since that moment the Carrera has become one of the best-selling watches within the top replica TAG-Heuer collection, which is now also available in matt black ceramic.


Truth to be told, this material gives the watch a very technical, almost sinister, look. This is, of course, thanks to the micro-blasted matt finish that exact fake TAG-Heuer applied to the ceramic case and bracelet. While it is an imposing watch, with a diameter of 45mm, it is surprisingly light to wear thanks to the ceramic. When on the wrist, the ceramic warms up to body temperature very quickly increasing the wearing comfort even more. Although also available on a rubber strap, the ceramic strap does add something to it. Not only in the way the watch looks but more so in the wearing experience, you have as an owner. It really gives the feeling that you are wearing something high-tech.


Through the partially skeletoniced dial you can admire the front of the HEUER-01 caliber that cheap replica TAG-Heuer makes in-house. It are the smaller details that turn this watch into an experience, like the skeletonized date wheel, and at the back the red details on the column wheel. Biver has been adamant about TAG-Heuer not only expanding its manufacture movements but also to keep the prices in check while doing so. Even with the matt black ceramic Carrera, they uphold this, as the retail price of US$6.300,- is very competitive for a watch made out of ceramic, with a manufacture chronograph movement and the pedigree of a brand like TAG-Heuer.

Replica Luxuey TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 Day-Date Chronograph Black Titanium Watch Hands-On

TAG Heuer is one of the most popular brands for people who are looking to get their first Swiss-made luxury watch, or as TAG calls them, “modern hipsters.” And amongst all of the cheap replica TAG Heuer watches, the Carrera Calibre 16 Chronograph watches have some of the broadest appeal to the entry-level demographic. 2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the Carrera Calibre 16 Chronograph and TAG Heuer is bolstering the line with a lighter-weight new model in black titanium. Join us as we take a closer look at the new TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 Day-Date Chronograph Black Titanium watch.


As you can see, the new exact fake TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 Day-Date Chronograph Black Titanium does not deviate greatly from the existing models. What’s new is the introduction of the titanium with a black PVD coating along with a black ceramic bezel and the beige font tachymeter scale.


Case size remains the same at 43mm, but it is now rendered in the previously mentioned Grade 2 titanium with a micro-blasted black PVD finish. The bezel is still just as thin, which accentuates the dial even more, and it is made of black ceramic and features a beige tachymeter scale, which complements the dial very nicely (more on the dial later). The lugs have thick bevels and arch downwards steeply to give a better fit for those with thinner wrists. Water resistance also remains the same at 100 meters, which means wearers can take the watch swimming with no problems. Thanks to its titanium construction, the new TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 Day-Date Chronograph Black Titanium watch feels light and comfy on the wrist.


For those familiar with TAG Heuer’s Carrera Calibre 16 Day-Date Chronograph watches, you will see that not much has changed on the dial. The numerals, arrangements, and wordings all remain intact, but it is now mostly rendered in vintage beige – or you could look at it as sandy tan. It seems like TAG Heuer is taking this color scheme and running, as one can’t help but be reminded of the TAG Heuer Aquaracer 300 Caliber 5 Titanium WAY208C (reviewed here) with a very similar set of colors and materials. Can we look forward to more such sandy versions in other TAG lines, perhaps?


One unique thing about the Carrera Calibre 16 Day-Date Chronograph is that it has large minute indexes in place of the more usual hour markers. This is to help wearers time events under an hour more conveniently. On this watch, minute indexes are hand applied and have been coated with a thick paint of beige Super-LumiNova. The hands are faceted and have a mix of polished and sandblasted finishes, and they too are painted with beige Super-LumiNova.


This beige color scheme extends elsewhere around the dial too. The chronograph hands, and the words “automatic chronograph” around the running seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock, along with the phrase “Calibre 16” denoting the movement within just under the day and date windows are painted in beige as well. So to offer contrast and ensure legibility, the running seconds hand is white, and so are the markers in all three sub-dials. The markings on the minute track around the flange is white as well. To complement the watch, it comes with a dusty brown distressed calfskin strap with a matching micro-blasted black PVD Grade 2 titanium folding buckle.


The result is a somewhat monochromatic look, but one that is quite harmonious and attractive, since black and beige go well together. One could say that it looks somewhat vintagey, but for me, it comes across as sandy and it gives the watch a very nomadic and desert vibe.


The TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 Day-Date Chronograph Black Titanium watch features a sapphire case back that allows wearers to gaze into the watch’s innards and admire the Calibre 16 movement. The Calibre 16 is TAG Heuer’s own designation for the ever reliable ETA 7750 automatic chronograph movement. Though it may not be an in-house movement, the ETA 7750 is a movement with all the niceties one would expect from a modern watch – including rapid day and date correction and a rate of 4Hz. It has also been in service for decades and has been proven to be a very reliable and accurate movement, and can be regulated to run within COSC specifications. For me, its somewhat short power reserve of 42 hours is a little on the low side.


This new TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 Day-Date Chronograph Black Titanium watch looks drastically different from the other Carrera Calibre 16 Day-Date Chronograph watches and is clearly a sign of TAG Heuer’s intent to appeal to a different and younger crowd. I’m not sure if I belong to TAG Heuer’s target demographic, but the colors used here are very atypical and unorthodox, and I think it works. For me, this is a really handsome watch. The new fake TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 Day-Date Chronograph Black Titanium watch will likely be priced just around $4,500.

Replica Luxury TAG Heuer Connected Smartwatch In Rose Gold

As was mentioned in the original introduction article for the TAG Heuer Connected, it was all but inevitable for the Swiss brands to get into the gadgety world of smartwatches. Admittedly, the cheap replica TAG Heuer Connected did do a good job of looking like the mechanical watches that came before it, and the titanium gave it some feel of luxury, at least more so than steel. What do you do when you want to up that luxury look? Why, you go for gold, of course. In this case, 18k rose gold.



Yes, that’s right – if the most expensive Android Wear watch to date (at $1,500 for the titanium version) was not luxe enough for your Instagram feed, you will soon be able to get the exact fake TAG Heuer Connected in rose gold. Now, in the right context, I am all for rose gold, much more than I would be for the good old yellow gold. In terms of a smartwatch, though? It’s a new concept and one that is certainly a matter of taste. Just not sure if that taste matches mine…



Then again, that is because I find myself at an odd place. As a gadget and watch guy, I like the idea behind smartwatches, even if I do not have a solid use case for them in day-to-day wear. As something that would be a secondary device (worn for specific parts of the day), or even a second device worn on the off-wrist, I can see them having a home, especially when they are only a few hundred bucks. When you get into the world of four figure watches? For me, it becomes a harder sell.


Then again, I am very much not the target audience for the nearly $10,000 replica TAG Heuer Connected Rose Gold watches. No, this is a different breed of watch buyer, one that I am guessing is picking up this particular Android Wear implementation for the name on the dial and the build quality that it carries along. Interestingly, the information around this watch states that it carries the same two-year trade-in guarantee that the titanium version does. If you recall, that allows the buyer to put another $1,500 down at the end of two years to trade the TAG Heuer Connected model in for a mechanical version. No word as to whether or not rose gold buyers will be paying the same or more, or what material their mechanical watch will feature. I like the idea of the trade-in, and it’s interesting to see a brand hedge their bets with the new technology like this.


I have to admit, I am sort of morbidly curious to see how this rose gold fake TAG Heuer Connected moves. The titanium version seemed at a bit of a high price point, but apparently it must be doing well enough for this higher-end version to come out at a price of $9,900. Then again, Mr. Biver certainly has a better read on the industry than I likely ever will, so perhaps he is on to something here that I am just not seeing. If that is the case, dear reader, please do let me know in the comments below!

Luxury Replica TAG Heuer Introduces Connected Smartwatch in 18k Rose Gold

The watchmaker goes where Apple tried and failed, with a smartwatch in solid gold priced at just under US$10,000.


Introduced late last year, the TAG Heuer Connected is the most successful, and arguably the only, smartwatch from a traditional watchmaker.

Originally available with a titanium and plastic case, the replica TAG Heuer Connected now goes upmarket with a 18k rose gold (and plastic) case.

All else about the watch remains the same, including the Android operating system, Intel processor and 4GB of built-in memory. Like the titanium version, the rose gold smartwatch can also be traded in, plus a payment of US$1500, at the end of its two-year warranty for an automatic TAG Heuer Carrera wristwatch in titanium.

With the cheap fake TAG Heuer Connected in rose gold, the watchmaker is attempting what Apple did with its Apple Watch Edition, the 18k gold version of the first Apple smartwatch. Starting at US$10,000, the gold Apple Watch had a brief life, having been discontinued with the introduction of the second generation model in September 2016.


TAG Heuer’s 18k gold smartwatch would imply that the watchmaker only needs a sell a relatively small number of them to make it financially viable, and also that exact replica TAG Heuer watches has much stronger brand equity for luxury goods the Apple does.

Price and availability

The TAG Heuer Connected in rose gold is priced at US$9900 or €9300, and will be available at stores starting the last quarter of 2016.

BREAKING: TAG Heuer release a tribute to Muhammad Ali – the Carrera Calibre 5 ‘Ring Master’

On the third of June this year, one of the greatest sportsmen of our times passed away at the age of 74. And though Muhammad Ali’s legacy encompassed more than boxing – his civil rights activism is particularly noteworthy – it’s his style, his personal swagger and success in the ring that will remain his greatest legacy.


It’s a legacy that TAG Heuer, along with the Muhammad Ali Centre is celebrating in Gleason’s Gym, Brooklyn, where Ali trained. In tribute to the great man, cheap replica TAG Heuer watches has created two versions of the Carrera Calibre 5 ‘Ring Master’ a regular steel version and a one-of-a-kind gold model that will be auctioned off, raising funds for the Muhammad Ali Centre.


But what, you might be asking, exactly is a ‘Ring Master’, and how does it relate to boxing? Well, as you may know, exact fake TAG Heuer watches has a long and distinguished history of specialised sports timing, including some specialised instruments made to time boxing matches. In particular, the timing scale on the 1957 stopwatch called, you guessed it, the ‘Ring Master’ directly inspires the distinctive ‘roulette’ style internal bezel on the Calibre 5 Ring Master model. This bezel indicates 15 three-minute intervals, each separated by a minute – the exact number and duration of heavyweight bouts in Ali’s time (these days it’s 12 three-minute rounds). The second scale shows 15 two-minute bouts, used in other weight divisions.


TAG Heuer has taken this distinctive design, and placed into what is essentially the Carrera Calibre 5 Drive Timer, a watch with an internal bezel, operated by the crown at 10. Should you wish to use the Ring Master to time one of Ali’s great fights (say the Rumble in the Jungle or the Thrilla in Manila), all you need to do is rotate the internal bezel so that the start of the first round lines up with the current position of the minute hand.

TAG-Heuer Ringmaster

The replica TAG Heuer watches dial also bears Ali’s signature, and the caseback an engraving of the man himself. The solid gold Ring Master also comes with an elaborate presentation box and a unique pair of signed gloves.

While this 43mm Carrera will obviously appeal to fans of Ali and boxing in general, thanks to the strong retro styling you don’t need to know your rope-a-dope from your peek-a-boo to appreciate the Ring Master.

Luxury Replica TAG Heuer Monza 40th Anniversary Calibre 17 – Baselworld 2016

The TAG Heuer range of watches is now composed mainly around two axis. The modern watches first, with the Carrera 01 & 02 Tourbillon, for example. The vintage-inspired watches then, with the Monaco or the Carrera Telemeter. We also know that TAG Heuer will offer collectors a very cool re-issue of the Autavia next year (and you probably chose it via the Autavia Cup). However, this year was the jubilee of the Monza, another icon of the Heuer collection. And as a celebration, here is the cheap replica watches TAG Heuer Monza 40th Anniversary Calibre 17. Is it a proper vintage reedition or a modern watch with vintage accents. Let’s find out.


The original Heuer Monza was launched in 1976 to mark Ferrari’s World Championship in 1975 with Niki Lauda and Clay Regazzoni, and was on sale until the early 1980s (source: Calibre 11). For collectors, the original and real Monza is the limited edition with Black PVD case, black dial and red accents. A watch with a cushion-shaped case, almost like an egg, with the Calibre 15 (an automatic chronograph movement from Heuer, close to the calibre 11, but with the small second oddly placed at 10), with the distinctive crown at 9 and a black dial mixing two scales: a tachymeter and a pulsometer. This is the watch that inspired the 2016 TAG Heuer Monza 40th Anniversary Calibre 17.

TAG-Heuer_ TAG-Heuer

Later, in 2000, the Monza was re-edited with a very different look and case, still cushion-shaped, but bulkier, more modern and less race-oriented. The watch measured 39mm and was available in several editions (time-only, chronograph, small second, gold or steel…). This case, that most modern collectors know as the Monza, is still, more or less, the one used for the 2016 TAG Heuer Monza 40th Anniversary Calibre 17. Thus, it’s a mix of vintage and modernity that TAG Heuer offers is this year.

TAG Heuer

If the design of the TAG Heuer Monza 40th Anniversary Calibre 17 might appear rather similar to the 1976 edition at first, it is nonetheless full of noticeable differences. Yes, the overall result is appealing and made quite a strong impression during Baselworld 2016, but we’re more in front of a modern interpretation of a vintage watch rather than a proper re-issue. First, the case is closer in style to the 2000s editions of the Monza than to the original egg-shaped one. It has this squared / cushion shape, with a strongly raised bezel, together with a round aperture for the dial. The 42mm case (that’s 3mm more than before) is now made in grade 5 titanium (sometimes modernity has some advantages…), with flanks polished and flat surfaces brushed. A good point for the choice of material. Usually, watches under 5,000 Euros are using grade 2 titanium. Here, fake watches TAG Heuer went for the more expensive and hard to machine grade 5 titanium – the only one that can be polished. The case is then coated with black titanium carbide – much more resistant than the PVD used in the vintage edition.

-TAG Heuer

Just like the vintage one, it also keeps the pushers and crown raw, without black coating. Some will find it rather strange but on the other hand, it brings an interesting vintage look to this TAG Heuer Monza 40th Anniversary Calibre 17 – most early coated watches were like this, without coating on the crown and pushers. The strap is also an ode to the vintage edition, showing the same racing-style, with large perforation. It is made here in full-grain leather (and not in synthetic material like the vintage one… again, modernity has advantages) and comes on a folding buckle, also in titanium and black coated. On the wrist, the watch feels large (like most cushion-shaped watches) and could be seen as too large by hardcore collectors. However, as this cheap replica TAG Heuer Monza 40th Anniversary Calibre 17 isn’t a proper vintage reedition but a modern interpretation, the 42mm case remains pleasant on the wrist (and light of course).


Another noticeable (and major) difference is the placement of the crown and of the small second indicator. While the 1976 Heuer Monza featured a crown at 9 and a small second at 10 (two strange but iconic features), due to the use of the Heuer / Buren Calibre 15, the modern TAG Heuer Monza 40th Anniversary has a modern automatic movement (calibre 17), meaning a small second classically located at 3 and a crown located at 3 too. That’s actually rather sad that TAG did not used the modern calibre 11, which features the crown at 9… a matter of choices and tastes. This automatic chronograph movement is based on a modular construction and features a 30-minute counter at 9 and a date window at 6 – also faithful to the original 1976 edition.

_TAG Heuer

The dial, even if differently arranged, remains close to the 1976 edition. The inner flange feature the combination of two scales (pulsometer from 12 to 3 and tachymeter from 3 to 12) as well as the same type of decorum for the 30-minute sub-counter – red areas and white inscriptions. The hands, as well as the indexes, are again faithful, in terms of design, to the vintage edition and perfectly fit the 1970s inspiration of this exact replica TAG Heuer Monza 40th Anniversary. Finally, inscriptions and logos are close to the original, with for example the use of the historic Heuer logo – that TAG uses on all historical pieces.

_TAG Heuer_

Overall, the TAG Heuer Monza 40th Anniversary Calibre 17 is a surprising watch. It mixes a modern appearance with lots of vintage accents. Thus, it is difficult to call it a real reedition of the original Monza, but at the same time, it is immediately identifiable as a successor of this watch. And in the end, the result is rather cool. Finally, the price is reasonable, as is will be available against 4,950 Euros – not that bad considenig the added-value of the grade 5 titanium case.

New Luxury Replica TAG Heuer Aquaracer Black Titanium Watches For 2016 Hands-On

Under the leadership of Jean-Claude Biver, TAG Heuer has been making some moves that are helping to reenergize the brand. Some recent highlights include the much-discussed Heuer 02T Tourbillon as well as the new cheap replica TAG Heuer Connected watches and the revival of an old classic, the Heuer Monza. All help affirm TAG Heuer’s strategy as a bit of a rule-breaker while firmly remaining in the entry-level category of the luxury Swiss watch market. The TAG Heuer Aquaracer keeps getting better, and these new models improve on the previous version with cool black PVD titanium cases and hip, vibrant colors.


While they have run the gamut with new, revamped, and reintroduced watches this year, TAG Heuer did not disappoint with this release either, again spicing up their bread and butter Aquaracer diving watches. Like last year, the updates to the range come at a 43mm diameter and use the TAG Heuer Calibre 5 movement, aka the ETA 2824-02 movement. This movement is a TAG workhorse and operates at 28,800bph with a 38-hour power reserve. Nothing new here, and the main changes this year are in adding even more bold styling and colors to the line.


Tan joins red and black this year, providing a slightly softer but still masculine look to the classic diver style. All use black ceramic bezels and black PVD-coated titanium cases, and these actually deviate a little from the 2015 TAG Heuer Aquaracer models by accentuating the red in the ceramic bezel as well as having a matching blue strap for the blue option. The dial also had an upgrade using the red and blue to accentuate the indices and flat hands. The red is brash, the blue a bit more brooding, and the sandy tan is just very effortlessly cool. It may sound like I’m fawning a bit here, but TAG obviously put a lot of thought into each color option, and they all work.


New for 2016 is the aforementioned tan-accented TAG Heuer Aquaracer Black Titanium model and it’s perhaps my favorite. This one uses cues from the blue and red but with (obviously) tan coloring instead, which works brilliantly against the black case, dial, and bezel. The strap is also tan with a replica TAG Heuer black deployant clasp. The dial is like the blue and red but with a yellow seconds hand that helps the contrast against the black ceramic and matches the TAG Heuer logo and Aquaracer branding.


As we mentioned last year, while these make for excellent entry-level desk divers, their specs allow them to still be considered as a real diver with 300m water-resistance rating and a bezel that rotates in one direction for timing events. The problem with considering these as serious dive watches is that the coloring (e.g., blue) will not help one bit in murky or deep dive conditions, and the strap – while excellent for day-to-day – hardly feels like something that would resist the harsh conditions of a dive boat and has no easy way to extend to fit over a wet suit.


So while the new 2016 TAG Heuer Aquaracer Black Titanium watches are mainly a sharper and bolder evolution of the line, I think they will do well in the market that TAG Heuer is targeting. It’s a difficult segment that is positioned between the obvious lower range divers that are now also joined by the crop of connected/smart watches and pricier dive watches like the Tudor Pelagos and Sinn T1, for instance. As Zen mentioned in his Omega Cost of Entry piece, the lowest-priced mechanical Omega watch is the Seamaster Diver 300M Co-Axial that starts at $4,400. That’s a number that won’t work for a lot of buyers, so these exact fake TAG Heuer Aquaracers are a solid alternative.

TAG-Heuer Aquaracer-Black-Titanium-

It’s also worth noting that TAG Heuer also added two more conservative models to the line. First, a steel model that has a classic blue bezel and dial reminiscent of the Omega Seamaster 300M. And then, there is a ceramic model with a gold bezel. Personally, it’s my least favorite of the lot but one that might appeal to those less looking for a diver’s watch but rather more of a day-to-day wear that would fit one’s fashion sense.

These cheap replica TAG Heuer Aquaracer Black Titanium watches bring a lovely palette of colors to TAG Heuer’s entry-level watches, keeping the brand accessible to new and younger watch-wearers while giving new buyers a potential route to the other models. The blue (WAY208B.FC6382) and tan (WAY208C.FC6383) TAG Heuer Aquaracer Black Titanium watches are available now, and the red (WAY208A.FC6381) version will be available from November 2016. All have the same price, which in North America is US$2,800.

Replica Luxury TAG Heuer Mikrograph 100th Anniversary Chronograph Watch For 2016

In honor of their 1916 Mikrograph Stopwatch, cheap replica TAG Heuer has announced the new 2016 Mikrograph 100th Anniversary. This is the first Mikrograph we’ve seen in a couple years, and while it boasts the same impressive functionality, a new case and dial design manages to make direct reference to its 100-year-old lineage. With TAG pushing to expand their market with cheaper tourbillons and democratically elected Autavias, it’s exciting to see them revisit the exceedingly complex and rather special Mikrograph platform.


The Mikrograph, as an idea, is characterized by its history as the first stopwatch that offered 1/100th of a second resolution. The 2016 Mikrograph 100th Anniversary sports a bullhead layout (with the crown and pushers placed at 12 o’clock) and a unique two-section case that allows the inner case to be detached from the strap and lugs. Once removed from its wrist-borne platform, the luxury replica TAG Heuer Mikrograph 100th Anniversary watch can be mounted into a desk stand or a dashboard mount for further use as a stopwatch.


On wrist, the steel-cased TAG Heuer Mikrograph 100th Anniversary is 45mm wide with long sloping lugs, a thin bezel, and an expansive white dial. The dial design is inspired by the 1916 Mikrograph stopwatch and offers strong legibility with black markings and long blued hands. The chronograph functionality measures a maximum of 30 minutes, with a minute counter at 12, a seconds counter at 3, and the 1/100th scale surrounding the outer edge of the dial, read from the long central 1/100th seconds hand. Along with a standard hour and minute hand, we also find a power reserve indication at 9 and a date display at 4:30. As a further nod to the 1916 stopwatch, the 2016 exact replica TAG Heuer Mikrograph 100th Anniversary has a large onion crown at 12, which I assume will be a treat to use when topping up the power reserve.

All of this high-speed functionality is managed by a very impressive movement that boasts two balances, one regular 4Hz (28,800vph) balance for the time, and one 100Hz (360,000vph) balance for the chronograph. The Mikrograph movement is COSC certified, uses some 62 jewels, and can power the chronograph for up to 90 minutes or the timekeeping for up to 42 hours. The 90-minute autonomy of the chronograph is due to the huge amount of energy required to fulfill the demand of that 1/100th measure and its ultra high-speed heartbeat.


espite the relatively few versions they’ve ever made, the Mikrograph family seems like such an integral part of TAG Heuer’s line up. Its mix of performance, heritage, and eye-catching design is such a strong fit for TAG. The 2016 TAG Heuer Mikrograph 100th Anniversary will be available this fall with a list price of $21,000 USD. If you want to sport this mix of old-school aesthetic and avant-garde super fast watchmaking, act quickly, as cheap replica TAG Heuer is only producing 100 units.
