In 2021, perfect replica TAG Heuer and Porsche — two brands that have been flirting with each other for decades — finally made it official and entered into a strategic partnership. Already, we’ve seen a series of Porsche-inspired and liveried Carrera Chronographs emerge from La Chaux- de-Fonds, but not one quite like the 1:1 fake TAG Heuer Carrera Chronosprint × Porsche.
This new watch takes as its base the new luxury replica TAG Heuer Carrera “Glassbox” design, first seen in a 39mm case at Watches and Wonders and amps up the automotive notes. It also amps up the size, as this release comes in at 42mm — the first for this style of Carrera, but certainly not the last.
Carrera and Porsche
Right out of the gate, the Swiss made fake TAG Heuer Carrera is a fitting tribute to Porsche, given how closely the classic chronograph is associated with the automotive world, but there’s a host of elements in this design that dig a little deeper into the Porsche 911 (originally the 901), a car which, just like the TAG Heuer Carrera replica for sale, turns 60 this year.
The main party trick of this new top quality replica TAG Heuer CA, which is offered in both steel and rose gold versions, is the chronograph caliber itself. When activated, the chronograph hand starts with a bang, gradually decreasing in speed over the course of the minute, in a unique mechanical innovation designed to echo the Porsche 911’s acceleration of 0 to 100km/h in 9.1 seconds. This is made even clearer thanks to the special chronograph seconds scale, which sees the 10-second mark down near four o’clock rather than up near two, where it usually resides. This variable speed lends the model its name, Chronosprint.
The high quality replica TAG Heuer Carrera Chronosprint × Porsche is an impressive and technically demanding machine, just like Porsche’s groundbreaking automobile. Both are signature designs that serve as a testament to the pursuit of excellence. The real joy of the car and the chronograph isn’t found only in the design; it lies in the human element as much as the engineering. We asked Carole Kasapi what it feels like to press the “start” button on this inventive new aaa quality fake TAG Heuer chronograph. She says with a smile, “For me, it’s that rushing spirit you get when you start a race. You need to be as fast as you can to get that pole position, and that’s something you feel with this watch. It’s a cool function.”
