X Factory Replica Tag Heuer Carrera Heuer 01 Full Ceramic Watch

Regarding Tag Heuer replica watches, they can be categorized into two groups. The first group consists of replicas manufactured by X Factory, while the second group includes those commonly known as “Yuandan.” These “Yuandan” watches are equipped with original Swiss movements. I have previously discussed these watches in a post, and they have garnered significant attention from many individuals. Even the highly popular Aquaracer models, previously produced by V6 factory, have “Yuandan” versions with Swiss movements.

Lately, there has been a decrease in the number of new replica Tag Heuer watches available in the market after the V6 factory closed down. However, I recently got my hands on a Tag Carrera replica watch from 2020, manufactured by X Factory, and I must say it is a top-notch replica. X Factory, though not widely known, is actually a subsidiary of the VS company, similar to how PPF is a branch of ZF company. So, it seems that the replica watch market is mainly dominated by these two watch companies, VS and ZF.

This replica of the Tag Heuer Carrera Heuer 01 from XF features a sleek all-black design, with both the case and bracelet crafted from genuine ceramic material. The skeleton dial adds a distinctive touch to the watch, making it a high-quality replica that closely resembles the genuine version. However, it is worth noting that the watch is quite weighty.

The case has a diameter of 43mm and a thickness of 17mm. I really appreciate the matte finish on both the case and bracelet, as it gives them a delicate feel. The craftsmanship of the case is exceptional, with each edge being meticulously processed to ensure there are no rough metal cutting burrs and that it feels smooth to the touch. When examining the case from the side, you’ll notice that the lugs seamlessly blend into the overall design, creating a cohesive look. Additionally, the bezel is seamlessly integrated into the case using machine precision. Finally, the two buttons located at 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock are fully functional, allowing you to control the chronograph feature.

The dial is available in only silver and gray colors, but it remains highly readable and allows for easy time access due to its skeleton design and large hour markers. The front dial provides a glimpse of certain movement parts, including the date wheel, which can be seen in the window positioned between 3 o’clock and 4 o’clock. Furthermore, the smaller subdial situated at 9 o’clock is dedicated to displaying small seconds, while the two larger subdials positioned at 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock serve to display the hour-chronograph and minute-chronograph respectively. It is worth noting that the replica dial may possess certain imperfections when compared to the genuine watch, as replicating the intricate skeleton structure proves to be a challenging task.
