When you browse the cheap TAG Heuer Carrera chronograph, you will find that there are many options to choose from-although from TAG Heuer’s own website, it has greatly narrowed the choice. Today, I review the entry-level Carrera chronograph that TAG Heuer calls Carrera Calibre 16. I checked it with the case numbered CBM2112.BA0651 with a modern blue dial and matching blue ceramic bezel. The same model is also available in black tone for reference CBM2110.BA0651.
This particular Carrera movement 16 is a sister model of the similar TAG Heuer Carrera movement 16 CV201AR.BA0715, and its price has increased by $ 50 (although I am not sure why). Both have the same 41mm wide steel case, the same Calibre 16 automatic chronograph movement, the same ceramic bezel and the same bracelet. What makes them different is that the TAG Heuer Carrera caliber 16 CV201AR.BA0715 has a more “retro style” dial (with a tan luminous body on the hands), and this style of CBM2112.BA0651 is obviously more modern.
In my opinion (and possibly TAG Heuer watches), the Carrera Chronograph 16 movement will be the perfect combination of its volume, affordability and timeless appearance. It is a healthy fusion of the modern classic Carrera chronograph and the ultra-modern Carrera watch TAG Heuer launched by Jean-Claude Biver. One of the most important design elements that distinguishes this Carrera Chronograph 16 movement from the “yesterday” movement is the use of index-style time scales, rather than the use of two-digit Arabic numeral minute scales … as the time scale.
TAG Heuer Carrera is one of many watches, inspired by the brand ’s enviable racing history. I think what Carrera can do is probably better than any other TAG Heuer TAG Heuer racing style watch. It blends with contemporary fashion and is a true universal men ’s replica watch, suggesting that its motorsports are Subtle and tasteful way to show. Various design elements, such as a stopwatch-style timer button and a ceramic speedometer scale bezel, are part of this tradition. One of my favorite parts of the dial design is how the auxiliary seconds dial at 9 o’clock integrates with the dial. However, the chassis of the chronograph is particularly emphasized, and the dial layout is more symmetrical than the three-register watch that usually uses this layout.
However, the core of the Carrera movement 16 is only durable and everyday wear, with a handsome design, powered by the main Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic chronograph movement. Interestingly, this particular design cannot be used in the homemade TAG Heuer 1887 movement as it was a few years ago. Conversely, if you wish to use a slightly larger version of this watch in a 43mm wide case, you can choose the TAG Heuer Carrera movement 16 DD (for example, reference number CV2A1V.BA0738). It has a strikingly similar design, but with some notable changes, including a larger 43mm wide (compared to 41mm wide) case, a “classic” minute dial, and a day of the week window next to the date window. It also has the same Valjoux 7750 self-winding movement.
The beveled cut on the stainless steel case gives the Carrera chronograph a very masculine and modern appearance, but it is closely linked to yesterday’s Heuer Carrera watch. These fake watches are made of domed sapphire crystal glass, waterproof to 100 meters, and are also suitable for most sports occasions-although TAG Heuer does consider it a “sports lifestyle” watch. For whatever reason, watch enthusiasts usually avoid talking too much about modern Carrera watches, but this may only be because they are usually related to attracting mainstream consumers. But this does not make them more attractive in terms of timing.
