Hands-on Review: TAG Heuer Replica Carrera Calibre 36 Flyback

The Fake TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 36 Flyback can be a study of both the past along with the present, in that it combines three innovative ideas from the 1960s into a modern, contemporary chronograph. The initial of these '60s icons is of course the Carrera itself, with the case design in the current range staying true to the pretty 1st Carrera of 1963. Then of course there could be the movement, the popular El Primero, introduced in 1969 and still made today by TAG Heuer's sister company Zenith. And lastly we possess a design layout that replicates Heuer's Stopwatches from the 1960s, which shifted the focus from the dial away from minutes and towards seconds by moving the seconds counter to the most prominent aspect on the dial. Yet the result is far from retro, with the Carrera Calibre 36 looking modern and sporty, particularly the Titanium-cased Racing model. Review - TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 36 FlybackDespite TAG Heuer initially offering the El Primero (called the Calibre 36 by TAG Heuer) in 2002, it has taken a lot more than 10 years for TAG Heuer to release the high-end movement in its top-selling model - the Carrera.

TAG Heuer Replica Carrera Calibre 36 Flyback ChronographWhile the high-end Calibre 36 is nothing new to TAG Heuer fans, the addition of a Flyback complication is. A normal chronograph is started and stopped with the prime chronograph pusher and then re-set to zero with the bottom pusher. You have to stop the chronograph just before you re-set to zero. The Flyback is different, in that you could press the bottom pusher while the chronograph is active This resets the hand back to zero and continues timing, something essential for military pilots for whom the complication was originally developed. This is just not the only flyback in the historical Heuer/ TAG Heuer Catalogue, with the Heuer Bundeswehr offering a flyback complication. Design

Carrera Flyback El Primero The Carrera Calibre 36 can be a development from the Heuer Carrera Mikrograph, launched by TAG Heuer in 2011. The Mikrograph is renowned for offering a 1/ 100th second chronograph and solving the challenge that evaded TAG Heuer's previous efforts at this precision of timing (the Calibre 360): how do you make it easy to read the elapsed time when the fractions of a second are so small?
