This is one of the famous watches from TAG Heuer, the Grand Carrera Calibre 17 RS2. It was inspired by GT race car engine design and it seems to be one of the most favorite watches when it comes to those who also love cars. The replica watch also features an interesting addition and quite a nice touch for those who love cars and want to show that off, so it has these cool dashboard style disks instead of hands.

The first thing we notice about this watch is the fact that it has a different color than the original. The replica comes with what it looks like a color that is a bit more faded and less impressive like the one on the original watch. However, the light could be the culprit here. The original watch comes made out of titanium or stainless steel, but the good thing here is that it seems like the replica watch manufacturers managed to make it look like the original. But there are two main visible differences between the watches. The bezel looks the same and the shade of the metal looks like the one on the original watch, a thing that can be quite hard to accomplish. The exquisite timepiece is definitely an elegant accessory for that person who simply wants something classy to go along with the outfits.

But when we take a closer look at the face of the watch we can notice that the writing in the middle is not the same as the writing on the original TAG Heuer Grand Carrera. The latter also has the word “Automatic” written at the beginning of the phrase. So, this might be a difference that people who know this watch thoroughly might notice. But it’s a pretty small difference that probably could be noticeable when the replica watch would be put next to an original watch. There’s also another difference between these two timepieces, but this time the difference is the chronograph, which has different numbers on the dial. Other than these two differences, the watches are pretty much the same and you also get to wear a comfortable leather strap that comes with the replica watch, a strap that is very similar to the original strap. The feel of the replica watch is also the same as the original, and even if some of the elements are not extremely similar, the watch still looks like it has great value.
