This TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 is one of the watches that easily incorporate well designed masculine elements with a good modern touch to it. You will easily notice that this watch looks very high tech and that’s also a feature given by the very modern strap it has. It comes with nice red and white accents on a black background, making it stand out without being too flashy.

The watches we have here feature a beautiful brown color with a nice red shade to it, making the design both masculine and fashionable. However, you will notice that there are some differences between the original watch and the replica watch, even though the latter looks quite similar to the original. However, on a closer inspection you will find that some elements are a bit different. The watches are both made out of stainless steel but it seems that the manufacturers managed to capture the same shade, not too dark nor too light or they used Grade A stainless steel like the original watch manufacturers.

The first element that is different from the original is the upper chronograph, which shows the numbers 20,40 and 60 instead of 10, 20 and 30 as they are shown on the original watch. The same happens with the left chronograph that shows numbers 3, 6, 9, 12 instead of 15, 30, 45, 60 and also the bottom chronograph that shows 15, 30, 45, 60 instead of 3, 6, 9, 12. Although the chronographs have the same numbers, they are misplaced on the face of the watch. However, this difference is only noticeable during close inspection and when putting the replica watch and the original watch side by side.

Another difference between the two watches is on the left chronograph and it seems that underneath it the watch has the word “Automatic” written; however, on the replica watch, this element is not visible, and those who know this particular detail could realize that this watch is a replica. Other than these few elements the watch is pretty similar. It features the same accents on the crown and on the buttons on the side. It also manages to give the wearer the same comfort as the original watch since it features a similar comfortable strap in a beautiful brown shade. Also, the markings on the tachymeter are the same as the ones on the original watch and this doesn’t happen often with replica watches.

The Rolex YachtMaster is one of the most important collections from Rolex brand and definitely one of the most important from their pieces as it is probably one of the most popular watches they have. Here we can see a beautiful stainless steel version with a white dial.

Genuine Yachtmaster II Watch

There are four errors between the original rand and the replica watch of Rolex YachtMaster II. The first noticeable error is the shape of the lower push button on the right part of the watch. There seems to be a difference between the one on the replica watch and the one on the genuine brand, as the genuine brand pushbutton looks to be more bulky. The second difference is given by the chronograph on the lower part of the watch.

Replica Yachtmaster Errors

The markings on the replica watch chronograph are different than the ones on the original brand. The chronograph on the replica watch has the numbers 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, and so on until 29 and 31, while on the original brand watch the count starts from 10 and continues by adding ten until reaching 60.  The third difference seems to be noticeable on the outer rim of the watch, on the tachymeter, where it is written YachtMaster II; the whole design is different for the replica watch as it seems to use another font, a white font, but also different font letters.  The forth difference is the outer rim around the bezel, that looks like a rotating wheel and has a very intricate design. The design seems to be a lot more complicated on the original watch brand than on Rolex knockoff watch, as the indents on the replica watch seem to be more pronounced than the ones on the original brand watch.
