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 TAG Heuer Formula 1 Kimi Raikkonen watch pays tribute to the latest in a great line of fantastic Finnish race drivers, specifically the formula one champion, Kimi Raikkonen. Like Mika Hakkinen before him, Kimi Raikkonen dominated the Formula 1 circuit scoring pole positions and finishing first in some of the most technically difficult race tracks across the world. The original watch comes in stainless steel with great water and shock resistance, meant to satisfy the pickiest customers in terms of sport watches.

Here we have two watches, one replica watch and the original TAG Heuer Formula 1 Kimi Raikkonen; the replica watch is done really well but there are still some elements that indicate the fact that this watch is still just a replica. The first noticeable difference between the two watches can be seen on the upper part of the face, there the watch has the date but the original watch is slightly different than the replica watch. The original watch has a bigger date on the display while the replica watch features a smaller date that is even hard to notice. However, all the other elements around the date are the same size they should be, making the date window hard to spot.

Another difference between the replica watch and the original watch is the left chronograph which has different numbers than the one on the original. The chronograph features the following numbers: 0, 05, 15 and 20 while the replica watch has a chronograph that features numbers 0, 10, 20,30. Another difference that is similar to this one can be seen on the stopwatch at the bottom of the watch. The original stopwatch has numbers 0, 1, 2, 3 going to 9 while the replica watch has numbers going from 10, 20, 30 to 90on its stopwatch. This difference can be noticed easily if the watches are put side by side and only at a closer inspection; however, it shouldn’t be a problem. Other than these three differences the watch seems to be alright and it has all the elements needed to be quite similar with the original. For example, the strap imitates very well the rubber strap that is featured on the original watch and it also has the logo and the brand name on it. Another thing that was done great on this replica is the finish on the bezel and other metallic accents that are very similar to the ones on the original TAG Heuer.
