After the Carrera Mikrograph Avant-Garde, here is another novelty from the casual Tag Heuer replica watch: the Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 1969 replica watch.
The 43 mm case of the particular Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 1969 Chronograph replica watches is only apparently similar to the Carrera Mikrograph case. The case design is- of course- based on the traditional Carrera design. In fact, this is not a two-part construction like the Mikrograph, rather an integrated titanium carbide case with rose gold details. The crown is overmolded with black rubber to offer even more grip.
The Cotes de Geneve finishing of the dial of the comfortable and handsome Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 1969 replica watch is extended to the 12-hour chronograph counter at 9 o'clock except for the left part which exposes the date wheel, a pretty unusual solution. The treatment of the date window is unusual, sitting underneath the ring of the 9 o’clock sub-dial.
The other two counters of the wonderful Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 1969 replica watch- 30-minute at 3 o'clock and small seconds at 6 o'clock - are decorated with a circular pattern. The tachometer scale, on an inner flange, completes the dial.
It certainly feels lighter than the steel Carrera that I was wearing that day, which is not unexpected given its Titanium construction and slimmer profile. 43mm is larger than I would normally wear, but I have to say that it looked pretty good.
The amazing and cheap 2014 Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 1969 replica watch in titanium and rose gold, is limited to 500 pieces.
