As you can see from the 1968 Catalogue above, there were two dial choices- the standard white dial and the Cheap TAG Heuer Carrera Replica with a black dial, with both options featuring a white chapter ring.
The case gets its name from the domed “Glassbox” Sapphire crystal, which gives the watch a vintage look similar to those domed plexi crystals from the 1960s.
The Crown pushers are a faithful reproduction of the original design, while the crown carries the Tag Heuer Replica Watch shield.
If you think that the dial looks familiar, that’s because it’s almost a mirror image of the Heuer Skipper launched back in 2017 by Hodinkee. While that watch uses the Calibre 18 movement, it has the same pushers, applied hour markers, date window and hour/ minute hands.
The Fake Tag Heuer watch uses a modified version of TAG Heuer’s Heuer 02 in-house Calibre, featuring an 80 power reserve.
There’s only one strap choice for the Dato, a 19mm alligator strap that is the same strap fitted to the Silver 160th Carrera from last year. The strap has a deployant folding clasp with the Heuer logo.
