Sleek design and the unique TAG Heuer Rotating System come together in the Grand CARRERA Calibre 8 RS replica watch. Inspired by GT race car engine design, the breakthrough Grand CARRERA Rotating System replaces traditional hands with dashboard style discs: the readability is optimum while maintaining effortless elegance. On the Grand CARRERA Calibre 8 the Rotating System reveals a second time zone at 6. An oversized date window is positioned at 12. The Grand CARRERA Calibre 8 comes in a variety of luxury dials and bracelets. They all have a sapphire crystal fitted into the caseback which reveals the movement.

The colour scheme is British Racing Green. It is also one of the corporate colour of Tag Heuer.

The main point for the green colour theme is ‘get away’ from the typical red.

Besides the second hand and the GMT marker are green, the straps are dark green with green stiching too. Pretty nice.

The dark dial and bezel are supposedly to signify night ( as it will be a night race)

The 42.5 mm diameter SS case is well-made. The bezel could be PVD…yet to be verifed. Screw down crown (with crown protector), and it is for adjustment of the time and dates. When crown is out, the movement hacks.

The strap-ends are shaped to seamlessly meet the casing thus leaving no gap between the lugs and the straps

The Rotating GMT(2nd time zone) System is at the 6′o clock position. Understand the RS range is adopting some areas of haute-horlogerie finishing…

With Grand Carrera Calibre 8 RS watches, beautiful design simplicity and appealing sport elegance are taken to the new premium level. Featuring all elements that make the Grand Carrera Collection distinctive at the first glance, these elegant Tag Heuer’s timepieces are specific by grand date and GMT functions.

Tag Heuer Grand Carrera Calibre 8 RS WatchWhen I saw Tag Heuer Grand Carrera Calibre 8 RS replica watches for the first time, I could not take my eyes off its dial. It was a version with a silver dial and a black leather strap, and although I later discovered a black dial variation, the silver one is still my favorite, mostly because of its clearness, great luminosity and the way how raised hour markers look on the textured surface. They are hand applied, as well as Tag Heuer’s logo, and just like hour and minute hands, they are nicely polished and coated with a luminescent material.

Tag Heuer Grand Carrera Calibre 8 RS Grand Date GMT Automatic WatchThe dial is visually divided into two parts – the central part with a clear surface that features the logo, a stylish Grand Carrera Calibre 8 inscription and a Grand Date window below the 12 o’clock position, framed with a circular texture that beautifully stresses hour markers. However, the central part of the dial is the RS disc display with Extensive Côtes de Genève finishing, at the 6 o’clock position that tracks time in the second time zone.
