What We Know
You know that feeling you get when you step on the accelerator of a sports car and peel out? The power pushes you back in your seat but gets easier to handle as you shift progressively up through the gears until your acceleration slows as you get closer and closer to top speed. Now, take that feeling and put it in a watch. You’ve got the new 1:1 fake TAG Heuer Carrera Chronosprint x Porsche, a collaborative chronograph made with the iconic car company that sports a brand-new movement with an unexpected twist.
Let’s start with the basics. The watch is based on perfect replica TAG Heuer‘s “glassbox” design, with a 42mm by 14.9mm case and a domed sapphire crystal with double anti-reflective treatment that allows for a better reading of the track at the edge of the dial at any angle. The luxury super clone watch ca comes in 18k rose gold with a beige dial or steel with a silvered dial. Both have rhodium-plated hour and minute hands, while the indices and the chronograph hand match the tone of the case. Finally, there are silver accents around the subdials and date window at 6:00. The subdials display the running seconds, a 30-minute chronograph counter, and a 12-hour counter for the chronograph. But with no tachymeter in sight, this movement is a bit different.
It goes 0-100 km/h in just 9.1 seconds – no wait, that was the original Porsche 911. But to mark that achievement, the first 9.1 seconds on the flange are marked by a red line. Wait a second, though, that doesn’t make sense because that line goes up to 20 seconds on the dial. That’s because the new TH20-08 movement powers the Swiss movement replica TAG Heuer CA hand that accelerates like a car’s speedometer.
What does that mean? Well to put it simply, when you start the chronograph, it will run very fast, covering about a third of the dial in 9.1 seconds (roughly 0-20 seconds of a traditional 60-second dial indication). All the while, the high quality copy TAG Heuer CA chronograph hand is actually slowing down as it circles the dial, getting slower and slower until it reaches the top of the dial and starts again at a fast speed. Why did they do it? What purpose does this serve? I’m not sure. But they did it anyway.
At the bottom of the article, I’ve included the rest of the relevant specs that were shared by top quality replica TAG Heuer, but of most interest to people is probably the price. The new release will run 9,000 CHF in steel, and 23,000 CHF in 18 rose gold. Porsche lovers, start your wallets.
