Tag Heuer Carrera Day Date Review

Tag Heuer Carrera Day Date Watch Review

  The Tag Carrera Chronograph Day Date Calbre 16 (CV2A10.FC6235) is one of the latest versions in the Carrera line up. This has some of the very distinctive features of past Carrera’s, but with some fantastic updates. The face has silver toned applied numeral markers, giving the dial some nice depth. As the name suggest this is a Day Date version and features a chronograph function. It is the small attention to detail that make the difference on this watch, red accent in the seconds subdial, red tipped chrono counter, and the red trimmed chronograph start button. The day/date window is bold, but not over powering, nice crisp lines. The bezel is black with the expected Carrera Tachymeter scale. 
  The Tag Heuer Carrera Day Date is powered by Tag’s Calibre 16 automatic movement, nicely visible through the display back case. The larger 43mm case is nice and makes for a less cluttered dial, the case is supported by a black crocodile leather strap. Still one our favorite watches, a true classic.

Pros - Nice movement, Day/Date, applied numerals, exhibition case back.

Consideration - The watch is 16.5mm thick.
