The sleek styling and exclusive Rotating System make the Grand Carrera Calibre 17 RS replica watch a must for connoisseurs of chronographs and motor racing. Inspired by GT race car engine design, the TAG Heuer Rotating System replaces traditional hands with dashboard style discs: the readability is optimum while maintaining effortless elegance. On the Grand CARRERA Calibre 17 RS chronograph the Rotating Systems show a permanent seconds hand at 3 o?clock and chrono minutes at 9 o?clock. The date display is at 6 o?clock. The Grand CARRERA Calibre 17 Automatic Chronograph comes in a choice of luxury finishings. They all have a sapphire crystal fitted into the caseback which reveals the movement.
The ETA 2894 was released in 1996 and appeared in the TAG Heuer range that same year. The Calibre 17 is available in two variants- a two register chronograph (ETA 2894, running second at 3 o’clock; 30 minute chronograph register at 9 o’clock; date window at 6 o’clock), such as the Carrera Jack Heuer 80 (above), or a three register Chronograph (ETA 2894-2) that adds a 12-hour register at 6 o’clock (see the Monaco re-edition below).
Here we have a replica of this amazing replica watch and it needs to be added that this is a well-made replica. From the first glance to even a more thorough analysis the replica manages to fool even a watch connoisseur.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 17 replica has the same beautiful polished hands, the amazing finish on the bezel and an accurate tachymeter that can actually be used. Also, the comfortable bracelet provides the same feeling as the original watch together with the same design. The fact that the watch comes with a bracelet provides the wearer the liberty to use the watch for elegant but also for more casual outfits. The oversized screw in crown will also provide the same style as the one on the original, making this watch again a well-crafted accessory.
The chrono minutes and seconds also look the same and have the original markings written, which makes the watch a very unique replica since so many out there tend to miss this aspect. Also, small details like the back of the bracelet where the company logo is are also kept on the replica, which adds even more to its quality. Even the anti-reflective glass looks the same as the one on the original replica watch. If you put this replica and the original TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 17 side by side probably very few people will know the difference between them, and those who will probably know a lot about watches or work for the actual brand. A good replica like this is pretty hard to find and even the quality of the materials used is outstanding and probably the main reason why the watch looks so amazing in the first place.
For those on a budget and even those who don’t feel comfortable to spend a great amount of money on a watch but still want to get that high end feeling, this replica is great. It is well made enough to look just like the original and it seems to have been crafted with great detail and precision.
