TAG Heuer Replica was always well known for their chronographs. Therefore, don’t be surprised that all the next big calibers are also chronograph movements. The Heuer 01 and the Heuer 02 all have stopwatches.
Now that TAG Heuer had everybody’s attention, they hit them with a more practical watch at a significantly more attainable price point. Doing this in exactly this order brought up the prestige of the caliber 02 tremendously and maybe not-so-coincidentally, just before the more affordable models hit the open market, making the Carrera 02 GMT 45mm Twin Time more desirable and noteworthy.
The dial layout is spectacular with a blue-rimmed small running seconds sub-register at the 6 o’clock position perfectly centered. The whole design is very symmetrical. Silver rimmed chronograph sub-dials are on either side of the dial at the 3 and 9 o’clock position.
Luminous brushed and polished applique index hour markers are placed at each hour marker position, with a double marker at the 12 o’clock position. White finely printed seconds and split seconds track is printed around the dial flange.
The date window sits between the 4 and 5 o’clock position and uses a skeletonized black plated stencil style font for the numeral which passes over a white background to accentuate the date.
One of the most noticeable features of this AAA+ Tag Heuer Replica watch is the split tone scratch-resistant ceramic bezel which has an almost cobalt blue hue for the bottom half of the bezel and black for the upper half. The bezel has 24-hour indicators engraved around the bezel.
This color combination is something that made one of the most popular Rolex watches so famous, the GMT BLNR also known as the Batman Rolex GMT. However, the TAG Heuer 02 GMT 45mm is nothing like it. It has its own unique and distinct look. They have no need to piggyback off the success of another already successful watch from a more popular brand. The Fake Carrera Caliber Heuer 02 GMT is perfect just the way it is.
