The original Replica Carrera Reference 2477 had a number of key features. Heuer constructed the model with a diamond polished stainless steel 36mm case, giving it a bright finish. It had prominent beveled lugs reminiscent of the brand’s 1940s chronographs.
The Tag Heuer Replica Watch dial layout was clean and straightforward, particularly compared to other chronographs at the time. It featured thin, beveled baton hour markers and fifth-of-a-second calibrations on the ring around the dial.
Of course, it also came equipped with three registers. However, it’s worth noting the Carrera didn’t have contrasting registers. Instead, the Fake Tag Heuer dial color was completely uniform. Finally, inside it housed a Valjoux 72 movement.
It was nearly an exact replication of the Reference 2477 with the same dial layout and measurements. The reissue even went so far as to place the original Heuer logo on the dial. However, there were two key differences. First, the iconic Tag Heuer Carrera Copy Watch name was noticeably missing due to a temporary conflict over the brand rights. Second, the new 1996 Carrera housed an all-new movement.
