High functionality and masculine styling make this TAG Heuer CARRERA Calibre 16 replica watch a necessity for all lovers of motor racing. A stylish day and date function is positioned at 3 o'clock. A high-tech Calibre 16 automatic movement powers the chronograph functions like central seconds, plus minutes and hours. An open flange design with red accents and large numerals allow for easy readability. The sapphire crystal fitted into the caseback reveals the movement in action.
Since its release back in 2008, the Carrera Day-Date Calibre 16 has become one of the most popular watches in the TAG Heuer range: bigger, bolder and more intricately designed than most of the Carrera models, the Day-Date model is the Alpha Male of the Carrera pack.
Overall the design of the watch works very well- the additional detailed touches and applied markers give the watch a more 3D, premium look. The question for people looking to buy a Carrera will be whether they like this design, or prefer the more understated Date-only Chronograph.
I can see that some will find the watch “over-designed”- and there is no disputing that it’s a “busy” design, but it does have a place in the Carrera range. If you have the “elegant” 1887, the “vintage-styled” Heritage series and the “racing-style” Calibre 16 Chronograph, the Day-Date is a bolder, more modern design.
