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.
We can easily see that the dial and the elements that are found there are a designed a lot cleaner than on the replica watch. However, this doesn’t mean that the replica doesn’t resemble the original, but there are some differences that some might find a bit notable. If you want a decent replica this can be it but if you want something that completely resembles the original you might have to search a bit further.
The reference number of this specific Tag Heuer 24 Calibre 36 watch is CAG2110.FC6209 and it was released in 2007. The thing is that this special edition watch comes only with a black dial and a black alligator strap. Tag Heuer didn’t make it with a black dial. The only Tag Heuer SLR with a white dial manufactured by this brand is the model with reference number CAG2011.BA0254, but this version has a wider date window instead of the 6 o’clock small dial.
Still, there are not that many people around who can spot these differences as Tag Heuer has constantly launched new SLR models with numerous aesthetic improvements. These continuous changes have made it very difficult to differentiate a replica from the original product.
