TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 01 made its debut two years ago at the international watch and jewellery show in Basel in 2015 and has since become the iconic timepiece model for TAG Heuer manufacturers – yes, this watch actually uses a movement made directly by TAG. The concept wristwatch’s main idea is to create a modern and bold collection in the Carrera series, which also includes some retro-oriented works such as Calibre 18 telemeter, and some sports versions such as Calibre 16 senna special edition. In order to distinguish this Heuer 01 sub-series from other Carrera models, the TAG Heuer replica watches adopts a new overall design (with some iconic elements, such as carved lugs), a new partially hollow inner core and a new modular design with 12 different elements of the watch case, which can realize multiple combinations of materials and colors. Some pointed to conceptual parallels with Hublot, however, when applied to TAG, the formula was widely accepted in the market because the model is now the brand’s bestseller (and, in the end, all that matters).
The striking male timepiece was treated with an all-matte black finish at the 2017 Geneva watch show. This is done not by coating the DLC or PVD, but by making the entire case and chain using highly scratch resistant ceramics. The middle of the case, ring, ear and case (all parts exposed to friction) is made of black ceramic. In addition to being quite lightweight, this material has unparalleled scratch resistance. Here is a dark black design with a microjet treatment. Technically, for 100 meters perfect waterproofing, all the functional parts of the best fake TAG Heuer watches (inner box, screw-on back cover, push-off) are always made of steel to enable the washer to function.
Combined with this completely matte black ceramic dial, the dial uses a dark black and dark gray color scheme. Whether you are looking at the hand, the split register ring, the movement of the plate, the date wheel or even the logo, there will be no one ounce of color applied to the dial, enhancing the dark black theme. Perhaps not the best solution for readability, but the results are certainly bold and impressive.
Behind the sapphire caseback of the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 01 Full Black Matt Ceramic, we still find the heuer-01 movement from 1887, which means the internally produced automatic integrated chronograph movements with column wheels and oscillating pinions (as mentioned in the innovation of cheap copy TAG Heuer watches). The plates and Bridges are decorated with Geneva stripes, the column wheels are painted red (in case you miss), and the open rotor uses the same black scheme as the rest of the watch. The power of this modern movement is 4Hz, with 50 hours of power storage.
