A touch of history on the TAG Heuer Carrera 1964
The TAG Heuer Carrera replica vs original series disappeared sometime in the mid-80s. It seems that it no longer represents anything the market wants. However, it is undeniable that at this time, Carrera is far from his simple 1960s self. Combined with another ownership change/cash-raising strategy, TAG believes that now is a good time to reissue the chronograph that started it all. Therefore, TAG Heuer Carrera 1964 was born.
The earliest eggshell, silver or black models received special praise because they did not even have the cumbersome internal tachometer scale.
1964 comes to 1996
TAG Heuer Carrera watch copy 1964 originally had three flavors. There is a silver dial CS3110 with a blue decimal point track, a black dial CS3111 with a white decimal point track, and a lovely 18K CS3140.
All leather straps are used, but the black strap brings the famous racing strap. The original Carrera used the lovely Valjoux 72, but these were already very good before 1996. Instead, TAG Heuer uses the tried and tested Lemania 1873 manual winding movement.
A little run-in with this Carrera
I think it was around 1996, and I must have gone home from school for the summer vacation. One Saturday, my parents and sister and I ventured to the Bal Harbour store in Miami for lunch and browsed. If you have been to this mall, one visit is already expensive!
They look beautiful, and the long lugs help make up for the lack of small cases. Time has passed, and the enthusiasm of these watches has led to much higher prices these days. Frankly speaking, I was surprised, but it seems that the original TAG Heuer Carrera 1:1 Replica has also risen.
