Replica TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrograph 100th Anniversary Special Edition CAR5A1A.FC6374 pays homage to the original Heuer Mikograph that was built in 1916. The watch is not just designed for your wrist, it can also be removed from its case and placed in the included dashboard holder or table-top display. Mounted in its wrist case the watch measures 46 mm in diameter, 16.5 mm thick, with a distance of 52 mm lug-to-lug. On the wrist, the 46 mm diameter case is absolutely wearable, although, ergonomically, it would be even nicer in a slightly smaller size.
The white lacquer and black printed chronograph scale is reminiscent of the early from 1920s era Heuer stopwatches, including, the 1916 Mikrograph, shown above.The hour and minute hands are treated in a black gold plating bath (that is not actually gold), resulting in a grayish color. Depending on the light, sometimes the hands would look dark gray or almost black, and other times they would look silver. Regardless of the color, the hands were always easy to see. However, the dial was clearly designed with an emphasis on the 1/100th of a second function, over reading the hours and minutes at a quick glance.The other hands, including the 30-minute chronograph counter, central chronograph seconds hand, 100-hour power reserve indicator, and 60 second small seconds display are all in blued steel. “MIKORGRAPH” and the old Heuer logo are printed in black at 6 o’clock. There is a date window at 4:30, which I wish was not there as it just adds clutter to a dial that has a lot going on already.
Replica TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrograph 100th Anniversary Special Edition is individually numbered, with “XXX/100” engraved on the caseback. It comes with a beige perforated calfskin leather strap with a steel folding clasp with push-button release and “HEUER” engraved on the buckle, as well as a dashboard mount and a desk clock display.
