Genuine Monaco Calibre 12 LS
Here we have two Monaco Calibre 12 LS, one that is replica and the other an original, put side by side so that we can see the differences between them. It seems that there are five differences between the watches.

Monaco Calibre 12 LS Replica

The first main difference that we can notice when taking a look at these beautiful watches is the writing on the top left side of the watch. On the original watch it says “Automatic Chronograph” while on the replica watch you can only see the writing “Chronograph”. The next difference is on the left chronograph that seems to have different numbers than the one on the original watch. The same happens with the chronograph on the bottom that features numbers 10, 15, 20, and so on instead of 01, 02, 03 and so on like on the original watch. You will also notice that there is a number on the right part of the watch, at 3 o clock. On the original watch the numbers are 00, 15 and 30 while the replica watch has numbers 00, 06 and 12. Another difference and the last difference between these two watches is under the numbers we mentioned previously, found at 3 o’clock. This time there is another set of numbers that are 30, 45 and 60 while on the replica watch we have numbers 12, 18 and 24. However, this last difference may not be that noticeable as few would actually read those numbers when taking a look at a watch.

The TAG Heuer Aquaracer is a famous watch very well known for its high water resistance and the automatic helium valve. The watch is definitely a symbol of elegance paired with great technology making it a perfect fit for men who need something sturdy but also men who appreciate great modern watches. The Aquaracer design makes this watch a perfect accessory for someone who does sports or simply somebody who needs a timepiece that would resist to a great amount of shock.

This is a well-made replica and you can easily see that if you look at how well done the small details are and how much the watch resembles the original overall. Another important aspect when manufacturing a good replica watch is the color of different elements on the watch. This particular watch is a good replica and it certainly has the right colors and the right tones on different elements it incorporates. Another particular thing about the model is the fact that it has an interesting strap that resembles a tire, making it a symbol of car races. The replica watch manages to have the same strap with all the elements like the brand logo and the writings on it, which is a very good addition and definitely makes it look more like the original.

However, although this replica is good, there are still differences that set it apart from the original. There are in total three differences between the two watches and the first one is the brand logo on the top. On the original watch the logo is clearly visible and very well defined, but on the replica watch it looks a bit different. The edges are not as well defined and the design inside is definitely not as clear. The second difference we can notice is on the minute and hour hands; the hands are completely white on the original watch making a beautiful contrast with the black background. However, on the replica watch, the hands are half white and half black from the middle to where they connect. This difference could be noticed by someone who knows well this particular model. Also, the third difference is on the seconds hand that features a nice interesting orange design. On the original watch, the arrow on the seconds hand is more elongated while on the replica watch is shorter and stubbier. In the end, these differences could be pretty hard to spot by someone who is not a connoisseur.

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.

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 Carrera Calibre 16 is a watch that has been often praised for its high functionality; however, that is not the only element that makes this particular model a great buy. The fact that it combines a stylish touch with amazing technology within a minimalistic design makes this watch perfect for any occasion. This Tag Heuer fake watch comes with a beautiful bracelet that is both classy and comfortable. Another particularity when it comes to this model is the fact that it features a great modern look, but it is suitable for a wide variety of outfits and will also satisfy many customers who want to wear something subtle but with great effect.

Here we have two watches, one is the original and the other is the replica. Fortunately, the replica watch is well made, with very few differences, making it one of the good replicas to own. It incorporates the elements that we can find on the original watch really well and everything is well placed, making this replica watch very hard to spot. Both watches are made with stainless steel and the replica watch seems to have the same type of steel used in the original since the color is the same.

Fake Carrera Calibre 16 Automatic Chronograph Watch

You will notice that the original watch has “Automatic “ written on it next to the 3 o’clock marking; this cannot be found on the replica watch, but instead the writing says “Quartz”. Probably the makers of the watch wanted to be honest regarding the mechanism it features so they decided they should write that it features a quartz mechanism. This may be a difference that can be noticed by someone who knows that TAG Heuer makes mostly automatic watches, but other than that, it’s not really that noticeable. Another thing that you might see as a noticeable difference is the fact that the tachymeter has other markings on the replica watch than on the original watch, so it might not function. However, even if these two differences exist, the watch is actually a very good replica, both when it comes to the colors it uses and other elements, so it can be a great buy for someone who wants to own a TAG Heuer but cannot afford the original. It also features the same watch bracelet made with comfortable design so that it can be worn for a long time. Overall, this is a good replica that manages to capture well the design on the original watch.
