Hey guys, TAG Heuer time. There are two editions of Jack Heuer celebrate the 80th birthday of TAG Heuer Honorary Chairman Jack Heuer. The first was designed by Jack Heuer himself and produced in a limited edition of 3,000 pieces. The second draws its inspiration from the groundbreaking Mikrogirder and Jack helped with the design.
With replica watches it’s hard not to turn common knowledge on its head and go for quantity over quality – they’re so cheap, and you know they’re not really going to be exceptionally-made anyways. I find its tempting to make impulse buys and fan out in all directions with styles and types of watches, even if half the watches you buy don’t get much ‘wrist-time’ and get left out of the loop.
This replica Carrera has indeed an identic looking black bezel, good looking silver markers, a similar Day and Date window, but there are still some pretty huge mistakes I have noticed. One would be the incorrect numbers on the three counters.
Instead, the three small counters of our replica incorrectly count seconds, minutes and hours. The second big flaw noticeable on the dial is the Tag Heuer logo applied above the Day-Date window. On the authentic Carrera it is silver on black; instead on the replica it is all silver. Additionally, it is crookedly applied. This really makes the whole dial look awful fake and cheap.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887 Chronograph Jack have also been replicated with the high-end Swiss ETA movements, which couldn’t be better. These TAGS are simply unmatched in terms of build, quality, and longevity, giving even the PAM and Omega copies a run for their money. If TAG sticks with this formula, they’re bound to build a huge replica watches fan base.
