TAG Heuer Carrera Sport Chronograph 44mm HEUER02 Automatic is an amazing work, Reference CBN2A5A.FC6481 is my favorite series. When I found out that it could be used to review loans, I was very excited. I found that the combination of black and gold is simply great on this piece.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Sport chronograph is powered by the internal movement Heuer o2. The 168-component movement is entirely manufactured by the Swiss brand Chevenez.
The movement has a sufficient power reserve of 80 hours. This means you can spend a full weekend in the game without worrying about entanglement (moving or entanglement).
The watch beats at a speed of 4 Hz and has a single barrel design. As a construction, Heuer 02 uses cylindrical gears and a vertical clutch system. More details of Heuer 02 can be seen in The Naked Watchmaker’s deconstruction of Autavia.
The TAG Heuer 02 movement is a major achievement of TAG Heuer, and they have the right to be proud of their work. The movement is beautifully decorated. The technological progress of industrialization can be seen in the clean and beautiful appearance.
The center of gravity of the black tourbillon with Côtes de Genève gives an outstanding appearance to the back of the copy watch.
The Carrera racing pedigree is impressive. Considering the history of TAG Heuer, which is closely related to the history of racing, people may easily understand the passion and expertise involved.
In any light conditions, the clarity is very good. Because the hands are very eye-catching, you can get a glimpse of time.
The watch is a bit heavy, but its weight is determined by its size. Of course, the bracelet version will carry the extra weight of the metal. For people who have used bracelets, this should be no problem. Small wrists accustomed to light/clothing watches need some adjustment time. It looks good and feels good on the wrist.

At first glance, the case is undoubtedly a Carrera, but there are many new designs that have flourished, the most interesting of which is the redesign of the horn, which now visually continues around the entire case, as Bove said:
“We want to strengthen the connection with the original Carrera, but at the same time bring all its design elements into the future. Therefore, we actually cut the outer surface of the lug into a straight shape, just like on Carreras in 1963, but we also Introduced the idea of making the outer surface continuous (using the curve at 4 o’clock and the curve at 2 o’clock) from one horn to under the baffle of the other horn. This is a big change because of all previous Carrera horns Stopped on the baffle.
The purpose of this is to change the feel of the watch copy from very vertical (just like the previous version) to more horizontal. The purpose is to make the watch look faster and more modern. The lugs are indeed slightly shorter, and the lower part of the side of the case slopes inward to emphasize the avant-garde design. You may notice that the watch wears particularly well on the wrist, especially considering that it is a fairly large watch. “
Guy Bove correctly interchanged this watch with the Carrera Heuer 02T on the 45mm wrist. Although the diameter is almost the same, there are still significant differences in how the two watches are worn. Carrera Sport is still a large watch (case depth of 15.27mm), but the changes made to the case and the facets used to destroy the bezel and crystal contours did help to minimize this visually. Comparing this case depth with other Carreras, you will find that this is not only a look, it is indeed thinner than the current 41mm Carrera Calibre 16 CMB2110 (16.23mm).
The size issue is always the issue when discussing modern Carreras-those who like classic designs think that anything larger than 41mm is “too big”, but it is undeniable that buyers have flocked to the modern 43/45mm skeleton Carreras. In the end it boils down to personal preference, but considering the thinner case and design changes, the new watch has fewer compromises to emphasize horizontal rather than vertical.
In the end, we designed a new chronograph button that perfectly combines brushed and polished surfaces with an evolution of colored “rings”, which has been a feature of the Carrera series for more than ten years.
The rear of TAG Heuer is equipped with a sapphire crystal to show the TAG Heuer 02 movement. A good match on the Steel / Rose Gold model is the use of matching Rose Gold text on the Heuer 02 rotor.
