Here we have put side by side two watches, one is original and the other is the replica of TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 16 Day Date and under closer inspection you will be able to notice the differences.

Starting with the bezel we see the first difference that can be found on the tachymeter; it seems that where it says “tachymeter” on the original watch, the writing is black, but on the replica watch the word “tachymeter” is written with a red color. This could give away the fact that the watch is a replica, but it’s not an element that many people know about or notice easily.

On the face of the watch we will notice a few more elements that could point out that the watch is a replica. First, on the upper part of the face we see the number 60 written with a bigger font on the original watch. On the replica watch, we can see that the number is written with the same size font as the rest of the markings on the watch and it doesn’t stand out quite as well as the one on the original watch. Continuing with the hand of this replica watch we will see that there is a dark design in the middle that can only be found on the replica watch. On the original watch the hands for hours, minutes and seconds are completely silver with white accents while on the replica they seem to end with dark accents. The last noticeable difference is on the date that can be found at 3’o’clock; it seems that on the original watch the date is written with a dark font with a white frame; however, on the replica watch we can easily notice that the date is a bit more different as it is written within a dark frame.
