With a unique, spectacle-driven take on the chronograph complication coupled with a design that blends the modern “Glassbox” Carrera layout with vibrant, graphic touches lifted from vintage Porsche 911 VDO gauges, the new TAG Heuer Carrera Chronosprint x Porsche Replica Men Watches series is a fittingly sporty, idiosyncratic tribute to two of the most beloved product lines of the past 60 years.
Available in either stainless steel or 18K 5N rose gold (only the stainless steel model was available for hands-on photography), the Carrera Chronosprint x Porsche’s case should feel largely familiar to fans of the brand, with the Carrera family’s classic inwardly-beveled angular lugs paired with a dramatic, Jetsons-esque domed crystal stretching from one edge of the case to the other.
This blend of the familiar and the fantastical continues to be attention-grabbing without feeling gimmicky, and at this larger size, it’s bolder and more deliberately eye-catching than its smaller siblings. Like the rest of the “Glassbox” Carreras, the new Carrera Chronosprint x Porsche models are fitted with sapphire display casebacks and are rated for a dependable 100 meters of water resistance.
The Porsche 911 inspiration behind the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronosprint x Porsche Replica Swiss Movement series shines brightest through the dial design. Although the base Carrera’s layout is left largely intact, these grainy metallic silver or pale champagne gold dials add a wealth of unique visual cues lifted directly from ‘60s-era Porsche 911 dashboards.
Of course, it’s the distinctive double-sided chapter ring that offers the greatest nod to the Carrera Chronosprint x Porsche’s one-of-a-kind chronograph design. This sculptural, almost wave-like element has been the visual backbone of the “Glassbox” Carrera since its introduction, but the addition of retro VDO gauge-style red accent lines to the inner scale ties the design inextricably to the interior of early 911s.
In short, when the chronograph is activated, the central seconds hand makes a circuit of the Cheap Tag Heuer Replica dial in 60 seconds, but not at a steady rate. The first 9.1 seconds (a deliberate reference to the original 1963 Porsche 901, which accelerated from 0-62 mph in a then-impressive 9.1 seconds) span from 12 o’clock to slightly past 4 o’clock, before the chronograph seconds hand “upshifts” into a slower sweep.
The run from 9.1 seconds to 30 seconds stretches from 4 o’clock to just shy of 9 o’clock, before one final “upshift.” The second half of the minute is then condensed between 9 o’clock and 12 o’clock, resulting in a roughly half-speed sweeping motion before the seconds hand speeds up again after passing 12 o’clock. This changing, accelerating motion is dramatic, bordering on hypnotic on the wrist, although new wearers may think the chronograph has malfunctioned the first time it’s activated.
The rest of the TAG Heuer Carrera Replica Watches dial design is filled with racy nods to early 911s, as well. For example, the 9 o’clock chronograph hours subdial features a vibrant red stripe running through its scale from 6.8 hours onward as a direct reference to the 6,800 RPM redline of the first 911’s flat-six engine.
Underneath these colorful accents, the base dial is still classic Carrera, with striped baton hands, raised outer chapter rings for the chronograph subdials, applied rectangular indices, and a cleanly framed 6 o’clock date window. It’s worth noting for the gold model, however, that TAG Heuer splits the dial hardware between case-matching rose gold on the indices and chronograph seconds hand, and rhodium plating for the main handset, subdial chapter rings, and date window frame.
Outside of these cutting-edge additions, the Fake Tag Heuer Watches for Men TH20-08 offers the same impressive performance as the base TH20, including a beefy 80-hour power reserve at a 28,800 bph beat rate alongside a refined column wheel and vertical clutch chronograph actuation system. On the finishing side, the TH20-08 uses the radially brushed, sharply engraved three-spoke steering wheel-inspired rotor design of the brand’s other Porsche-themed models, and augments it with crisp Côtes de Genève for the bridges.
TAG Heuer Replica with 80% Discount completes both watches in the series with classic calfskin leather straps (black for the steel variant, rich tobacco brown for the gold model) embossed with the original Porsche 911 script logo at 6 o’clock. It’s a more overt touch than the rest of the design’s Porsche-themed accents, but one that can still fade into the visual background in most contexts.
