The new TAG Heuer Carrera x Porsche RS 2.7 Replica line combines the familiar Carrera silhouette with clean, sporting new colorways, alongside racy and distinctive touches that immediately set these models apart from the pack.The 42mm-wide polished case largely follows the pattern of the current Carrera line. The line’s signature inwardly faceted lugs, narrow polished smooth bezel, and robust piston-style pushers should all be familiar to fans of the brand here, but the Carrera x Porsche RS 2.7 sets itself apart on the 9 o’clock case side.
The stainless steel model takes the bolder approach of the pair, with a lacquered accent stripe in vibrant blue running from lug to lug. Both the color and the rounded Carrera script are directly lifted from the Cheap Tag Heuer Replica Porsche 911 Carrera RS 2.7, and the integration here serves to sharply highlight the contours of the case and the sloping downturn of the lugs. It’s a vivid and unapologetically bold addition that might not serve everyone’s tastes, but the positioning on the 9 o’clock side helps to hide this design from most angles, particularly when wearing long sleeves.
TAG Heuer does add matching blue accents to the crown and 10 o’clock pusher, which help to give the design a bit more visual punch when viewed from different angles. By contrast, the rose gold variant offers a subtler, more refined variation on the theme. Rather than lacquering the stripe onto the case side, the brand instead engraves the stripe directly into the case itself. Coupled with the contrasting brushed finish inside the engraved segment, this technique gives the case a wealth of visual depth, markedly adding to the sense of overall quality on the wrist. Like the standard Carrera, Tag Heuer Replica Watches fits these models with sapphire display casebacks and rates them for a solid 100 meters of water resistance.
The dials of the TAG Heuer Carrera x Porsche RS 2.7 line finely balance dynamic color with clean, straightforward presentation. For the stainless steel model, TAG Heuer continues the case’s blue motif, with pops of cobalt blue against an optic white opaline base dial. Accents like the contrast ring surrounding the applied indices, the blue outer minutes scale, and the blue central seconds hand give this design a more sporting character than the standard 42mm Carrera, but it’s the 3 o’clock chronograph minutes subdial that steals the show on the wrist.
The addition of azurage to the center of the subdials at both 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock helps to visually break up the broad negative space of the main dial surface, while also lending a greater sense of complexity to the overall design. Like the standard Carrera, the Carrera x Porsche RS 2.7 downplays its 6 o’clock running seconds subdial, reducing it to a minimalist crosshair pattern intersected by the 6 o’clock date window.
TAG Heuer Replica Swiss Movement offers largely the same look for the rose gold model but substitutes the blue accents for matching highlights in Porsche’s famous Guards Red hue. Although it complements the rose gold handset and dial hardware nicely on the wrist, this aggressive red gives the design a surprisingly feminine cast when compared with its stainless steel counterpart.
TAG Heuer equips the Carrera x Porsche RS 2.7 with its in-house Heuer 02 automatic chronograph movement. The Heuer 02 has become the brand’s de facto flagship movement over the past few years, making its way into the majority of 100% Quality TAG Heuer Replica upper-echelon chronograph offerings. The Heuer 02’s performance certainly backs this up, with a hefty 80-hour power reserve at a 28,800 bph beat rate alongside a column wheel and vertical clutch chronograph actuation system.
Swiss TAG Heuer Replica fits the two Carrera x Porsche RS 2.7 models with markedly different strap options. The rose gold variant offers a more classical look, pairing the watch to a deep red alligator leather strap with a matching 18K 5N rose gold pin buckle. For the stainless steel model, TAG Heuer instead offers an eye-catching bespoke NATO strap. It’s a decidedly casual look, but one that suits the overall design well. For a less conspicuous feel, wearers can also opt for the included stainless steel H-link bracelet.
