Earlier this year, perfect replica TAG Heuer released a new take on the Carrera design that served as a new chapter in the 60-year saga of the iconic chronograph. With a boldly domed sapphire crystal allowing for an expansive, uninterrupted view of the dial and the design’s trademark clean profile, this new take on the classic is full of potential, and sets both the tone and the pace for the future of cheap fake TAG Heuer Carrera.
Judging by this latest addition, the future looks bright indeed. This 39mm yellow gold luxury replica TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph demonstrates the versatility of this new design, while paying tribute to one of the most coveted Heuer Carreras of all time. A watch known simply as ‘the Drivers’ watch.
The reference 1158 CHN, to give the model its proper name, is emblematic of the close ties between AAA quality replica TAG Heuer CA and the world of Formula 1. In 1971, Jack Heuer was the first non-automotive sponsor of Ferrari, and alongside timing equipment, he made a deal with the team’s drivers. He offered them a solid gold TAG Heuer Carrera super clone for sale, with a champaign dial and black subdials (the CHN in the reference refers to this specific dial layout), on the proviso that they had to visit the Heuer factory in Switzerland to pick them up. Soon, these distinctive watches were found on the wrists of the fasted racers in the world, men like Niki Laude and Mario Andretti.
As for the Swiss movement copy TAG Heuer itself, it certainly delivers on its golden promise. The yellow gold case and dial make quite an impression, especially when you factor in the fine vertical brush on the dial and the spectacular view under that high sapphire crystal. The black elements add contrast that only amplifies the precious hue even more. When it comes to the question of historical accuracy, it walks a fine line. The top quality fake watch ca is undeniably a tribute to the original 1158 CHN replica watches online ca, but still very much to be its own thing. The overall look and feel of the case, while sensitive to vintage aesthetics, is clearly modern. One of the most notable changes from the iconic historic references is the plain black calf band in lieu of the over-top solid gold mesh bracelet, but given how that much extra gold would impact the sticker price, not too many people are likely to complain.
The high quality replica TAG Heuer CA hasn’t been shy about celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Carrera in style, and it’s only fitting and appropriate that they’ve chosen to honour one of the most legendary references in style.
Ryan Gosling’s turn as Ken brought us plenty of delights—“I’m Just Ken,” that cursed Matchbox Twenty cover, and the phrase Mojo Dojo Casa House all spring to mind—but none tickled watch nerds’ fancy more than the scenes in which he sported three different vintage Heuer replica watches at once. (You’d think he would’ve strapped a simple, pink 1:1 fake TAG Heuer Carrera on his wrist and called it a day, but as Ken grew more and more unhinged throughout the film, so did his wardrobe choices.) Though each of the vintage Heuer Carrera super clone CA chronographs Ken wore has its merits, the one with the most real-world, watch-guy kudos is most definitely his ref. 1158 CHN. Originally released in 1971, the 1158 CHN is a dual-register, automatic version of the cheap replica TAG Heuer Carrera powered by the brand’s legendary Caliber 12 movement—the second generation of one of the world’s first automatic chronograph movements. It’s because of the Caliber 12’s unique architecture that the watch’s winding crown is present on the left side of the C-shaped case, making the model easy to spot in a lineup. Beyond its largely conventional 12-hour counter, a 30-minute counter, and date window at 6 o’clock, the ref. 1158 CHN’s most notable feature is its case material: It’s made of solid gold, with Ken’s super clone watch even sporting a matching gold Milanese bracelet.
Given to Ferrari Formula 1 team drivers between 1971 and 1978, the 1158 CHN is said to be one of former Heuer CEO (and Carrera model inventor) Jack Heuer’s favorite references. Meant for high-end clients, it’s also an example of the “luxurification” of the tool watch that began in the 1970s—indeed, it’s not tough to imagine someone flipping open a watch roll to reveal a cheap fake Rolex Submariner ref. 1680 in yellow gold, a 1158 CHN, and the new Blancpain Fifty Fathoms 70th Anniversary Act III, one alongside the other. It’s the sort of watch that says, “I’m sporty…but also fancy AF.”
Now, Gosling has taken Ken’s gold Swiss movement fake TAG Heuer Carrera out of Barbie Land and straight into the real world. On Friday, the actor sported it at the star-studded Gucci show at Milan Fashion Week. Paired with his black leather bomber jacket and a simple white tee, the gleaming Heuer absolutely stole the show. And while the 1158 CHN oozes enough cool to elevate just about anyone’s style, nobody wears it quite like Gosling.
If you’d like to cop the look but can’t source a vintage 1158 CHN, you’re in luck: aaa quality replica TAG Heuer CA makes contemporary, solid-gold versions of the Carrera that come in and out of the catalog. One of our faves? This high quality fake TAG Heuer Carrera Automatic Chronograph in 3N Gold. Measuring 42mm and sporting a black dial, it’s not a perfect analog for Gosling’s watch—but it’s got more than enough Kenergy to last you a lifetime.
