TAG Heuer Carrera is one of the most famous chronographs of all time. It can be traced back to 1963, when Jack Heuer named it the legendary “Carrera Panamericana” road race. Carrera combines racing and watchmaking, something other brands cannot do.(TAG Heuer Carrera 1887 With Blue Dial replica watch)
Jack Heuer’s father Edouard Heuer invented the swing pinion in 1887. In 2010, TAG Heuer made a self-made 1887 movement with a swinging pinion to power the Carrera today.
For this REVIEW, we selected TAG Heuer Carrera 1887 with a beautiful sunburst finish blue metallic dial. In the center, at 12 o’clock, is a 30-minute chronograph counter. The 12-hour chronograph counter sits directly below at 6 o’clock. The two counters feature sloped silver rings, with circular guilloche in blue. On the outer edge is a sloped flange with a printed tachymeter scale. The chapter ring has a printed minute scale and large applied hour indexes.
At 9 o’clock is a small blue second auxiliary dial without chapter ring, and the color is the same as the dial, even if it is actually three chronographs, it looks like there are only two registers.
The baton-style hour and minute hands have luminous material. The upper edge of the time scale is also luminous. There is a hole in the hour counter at 6 o’clock to indicate the date. Elements that help keep the dial clean and easy to read.
A 3-part case in 316L stainless steel houses the movement and features a fully polished finish. The bezel is fixed with short, straight lugs. Carreras come with a variety of pump pushers to start/stop/reset the chronograph, and while these are attractive, this style has a modern look, whereas I feel the vintage style is more attractive. A non-locking ridged crown polished and embossed with the TAG Heuer shield completes the look.
A gleaming polished case always seems to look great at first, although as evidenced by this sample model we tested, polished steel is a magnet for scratches. That said, scratching, patina and wear, if not excessive, can lend some character to a watch, especially a decade or two from now. Further, much of the scratches can be polished away fairly easily, if you prefer.
On the front, a slightly domed sapphire crystal protects the dial. The back has a clear sapphire caseback that is screwed-in. The steel crown is non-locking and is 6.98 mm in diameter. It is wide enough to easily adjust, without protruding out too far and digging into your wrist. Water-resistance is 100 meters. The weight is 111.3 grams with the strap. Matched with a blue alligator strap (20 mm at the lugs, tapered down to 18 mm at the buckle and stainless steel folding signed clasp. 100 meters water-resistant.
Inside the movement is a 1887 self-winding movement with a column wheel chronograph. The main board has a matte feel (round texture), and some bridges also have a matte feel. Most of the components have an industrial brushed or frosted effect, which is not a “premium watch” level, but it is suitable for the sports characteristics of the watch and a reasonable price.
Ceramic ball bearings ensure the skeletonized rotor winds efficiently and more quickly than standard ball bearings. The watch beats at 4Hz and has 39 jewels. The power reserve is 50-hours. Notably, the pushers actuate very smoothly, something you typically see on much more expensive chronographs.
