This beautiful TAG Heuer 24 Calibre 36 watch is definitely something any man would want to wear on their wrist. It is inspired by the legendary 24 hour race at Le Mans and also was worn by the main character in the movie with the same name. The watch manages to capture the retro style in a combination of modern touches.  It is also quite famous for its Advanced Dynamic Absorber that protects the movements but also the oscillating mass that resembles the racing wheel. The series has also been continued and discontinued, first it was discontinued in 1970, and it came back in the 90s, and then was reintroduced in 2003, with new and better mechanisms. This is definitely a watch for race lovers and those who are a bit nostalgic and want to wear some retro colors.

Here we have the replica TAG Heuer 24 Calibre 36 and the original watch put together so that we can see the differences clearly. There are some differences, however, not as many as for other replica watches. The first difference that we see is the brand logo on the top of the watch dial. On the original watch we can see a dark brand logo in the background with silver accents that create the pattern. However, things are a little bit more different on the replica watch as the brand logo comes with what it looks like mostly silver and the patterns seems to have a 3d effect with the letters, protruding from the silver background.  However, there is no contrast between the background and the color on the letters.

The second difference that we can notice on the replica watch is the date function. On the original watch the background there is black and the date is written with white numbers; however, on the replica watch the background is white and the numbers used are black. Another detail that is noticeable about the replica watch is the small color on the crown; you can easily see that the one on the replica watch features a red color while the one on the original watch has no color at all. This can be noticeable by someone who is well versed in TAG Heuer replica watches, but definitely not noticeable by a layman. However, the replica is pretty well made even with these differences as it manages to capture what the original wanted to capture inspired by the Le Mans.

This watch is probably one of the famous series when it comes to this brand’s watches. You might be wondering why; the main reason is that this particular watch is very classy but manages to keep quite a modern touch to it. Obviously, TAG Heuer Grand Carrera Calibre 36 is the right choice for a wide range of people, making it more and more popular. This watch was also a great step forward when it came to technology as it featured the first mechanical chronograph that measured and displayed time to 1/10th of a second. It has been inspired from the race car engine design so fans will simply love the fact that this watch maintains that car feel without loosing its elegance.

Here we have two watches, both pretty similar, but one is a replica watch and the other is an original. When it comes to the replica watch, we have the same modern style and elegance with a few small differences. However, the watch is wearable and manages to catch the style suggested by the original brand.

 The first noticeable difference is the fact that the hour, minute and second markings are not the same on the replica watch as they appear to be a slightly different and darker color. However, this is not very noticeable because the whole design manages to make this look decent. Also, the difference is not big and will only be noticed by someone who is well versed in watches.

 Another difference is the fact that the numbers on the chronograph are not the same numbers showed on the original watch chronograph. This happens, unfortunately, with both chronograph so if you inspect the watch closely, you will notice that the original watch features a correct set of numbers while the replica watch doesn’t.

There is also another difference that you can notice easily when comparing these Tag Heuer watches; the difference is the fact that the date shown on the original watch has a different design and it seems to be written in white on a black background, while on the replica watch, the date is written with black on a white background. However, noticing this will probably require that both watches are put side to side and compared, which rarely happens.

Overall, this is a decent replica, it manages to have the elements that can be found on the original watch, but it has some differences that might put off some buyers.
