The TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-01 Full Black Matt Ceramic Replica is new and the latest addition to the tirelessly expanding range of Carrera Heuer-01 watches.
We are presented with a rather impressive-looking new piece with the Best Tag Heuer Replica Carrera Heuer-01 Full Black Matt Ceramic – I do wish the name rolled off the tongue that tiny bit more easily, but oh well. While ceramic watches have been around for a long time now largely due to Rado and a few others here and there.
The case, bezel, lugs, and case band are all made from black ceramic with a micro-blasted finish, with all these being wrapped around a stainless steel core. The Tag Heuer Replica Watches steel core is present because ceramic would not allow for such precision fitting of screws, gaskets, and threaded components as does steel. The case-back, just to spice things up a bit, is in satin-finished black titanium carbide with, but of course, a transparent sapphire crystal in the center.
The case is the 45mm-wide variant of the Churchwatch.co.uk Heuer-01 – more recently some 43mm versions have been released. Inside the massive case is the Heuer-01 movement that features a column-wheel chronograph mechanism, automatic winding and 50 hours of power reserve.

The new TAG Heuer Replica Carrera Calibre 16 Day-Date Chronograph Black Titanium does not deviate greatly from the existing models. What’s new is the introduction of the titanium with a black PVD coating along with a black ceramic bezel and the beige font tachymeter scale.
Case size remains the same at 43mm, but it is now rendered in the previously mentioned Grade 2 titanium with a micro-blasted black PVD finish. The bezel is still just as thin, which accentuates the dial even more, and it is made of black ceramic and features a beige tachymeter scale, which complements the dial very nicely. The lugs have thick bevels and arch downwards steeply to give a better fit for those with thinner wrists. Water resistance also remains the same at 100 meters, which means wearers can take the Best Tag Heuer Replica watch swimming with no problems. Thanks to its titanium construction, the new TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 Day-Date Chronograph Black Titanium watch feels light and comfy on the wrist.
One unique thing about the Carrera Calibre 16 Day-Date Chronograph is that it has large minute indexes in place of the more usual hour markers. This is to help wearers time events under an hour more conveniently. On this Tag Heuer Replica Watches, minute indexes are hand applied and have been coated with a thick paint of beige Super-LumiNova. The hands are faceted and have a mix of polished and sandblasted finishes, and they too are painted with beige Super-LumiNova.
This beige color scheme extends elsewhere around the dial too. The chronograph hands, and the words “automatic chronograph” around the running seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock, along with the phrase “Calibre 16” denoting the Tag Heuer Replica Watches UK movement within just under the day and date windows are painted in beige as well. So to offer contrast and ensure legibility, the running seconds hand is white, and so are the markers in all three sub-dials.
The result is a somewhat monochromatic look, but one that is quite harmonious and attractive, since black and beige go well together. One could say that it looks somewhat vintagey, but for me, it comes across as sandy and it gives the Fake Watch a very nomadic and desert vibe.
