This new TAG Heuer CARRERA CALIBRE S 1/100TH replica watch is extraspecial. It is the most momentous advance ever made in chronograph displays. Its patented Calibre S movement registers amazing 1/100th of a second. To maximize readability, the hour and minute hands show either watch or chronograph times. The distinctive semi-circular Calibre S counters show 1/10th and 1/100th of a second or a perpetual calendar until 2099.

While the Carrera Calibre S case is not unique in the Carrera range, the dial is. The signature elements of watches using the Calibre S movement are the two semi-circular, 160 degree sub-dials at 4.30 and 7.30, which replace the traditional circular registers. Since 2005 the Calibre S has been available in the SLR, Formula 1, Aquaracer, Link and Carrera variants- with all Calibre S models featuring the same semi-circular sub-dials. It can sometimes to hard to work out which movement is used in a replica watch without reading the script on the dial, but the Calibre S watches are easy to identify.

Overall the design works well, although the two Calibre S registers can look a little lost on the dial. On most Calibre S models, the two registers extend towards the edge of the dial, as with the Link Calibre S below. But the larger diameter of this Carrera means that this isn’t possible and so the registers don’t integrate into the dial as neatly as on other models.
