The Value of Vintage
In recent years, the appeal of vintage or vintage-style timepieces has steadily increased. As a result, countless brands have created reimagined versions of their classics. This trend has certainly seen a particular surge in the past decade.
The Original Heuer Carrera
No re-edition is quite as poignant and celebrated as the High Quality Carrera Replica. The model’s origins date back to 1963. The early 1960s marked an important period of transition for the Heuer brand.
Heuer constructed the model with a diamond polished stainless steel 36mm case, giving it a bright finish. It had prominent beveled lugs reminiscent of the brand’s 1940s chronographs. The dial layout was clean and straightforward, particularly compared to other chronographs at the time.
It featured thin, beveled baton hour markers and fifth-of-a-second calibrations on the ring around the Tag Heuer Replica dial. Of course, it also came equipped with three registers.Instead, the dial color was completely uniform. Finally, inside it housed a Valjoux 72 movement.
Continuing the Heuer Legacy Through the Carrera
Like the debut of the original 1963 Carrera, the re-introduction of the model was wildly successful. The Fake Tag Heuer Carrera Watch continues to be part of the TAG Heuer catalog today and has seen many new iterations.
