Collaborations between watchmakers and automobiles manufactures are common, but unsurprising given the focus on engineering and styling shared by the two industries. Despite the obvious synergies, the replica watch-and-car tie ups of recent years have rarely enjoyed unbridled success.
The case is identical to that on the standard Luxury Tag Heuer Carrera Replica chronograph, so it’s 44 mm in diameter with the model’s characteristic, facetted lugs.
While the dial is modelled on a speedometer, the automotive content of the design is restrained.More unusually, the granular finish of the dial was conceived to be reminiscent of asphalt.
The Fake Carrera Porsche Chronograph is powered by the Heuer 02, an in-house chronograph movement that features a column wheel and vertical clutch.
It has an impressive 80-hour power reserve – almost twice the industry norm. And unique to the Porsche edition is a rotor shaped like the steering wheel in the current generation of Porsche automobiles.
