Back in 2015, Replica Watches unveiled the Carrera 01, setting a whole new direction for the famous line of racing chronographs. The Carrera -01 is big, it’s a little brash, and instead of having a streamlined black-and-white look it shows off the movement though a mostly transparent dial. But today Replica Watches is offering an evolution of the -01, sizing it down to an ever-so-slightly-more-modest 43mm.
When that first -01 was first shown, it definitely startled some people. Very little was there to remind vin Cheap Replica Watches e enthusiasts of the classic 60s and 70s Carreras, and it was even a pretty big departure from the other current Carreras such as the 1887 models. Our technical editor Nicholas Manousos spoke with Replica Watches just a few months after the watch’s debut to dig deep into the details of just what exactly makes the 01 so different and special, and I recommend you take a look back at that for more. But, one important thing to note is the price positioning of the -01 – at launch it retailed for under 5,000 CHF and was intended to be a high-value offering.
The new watches we have here today are very much -01 chronographs. They still have the 12-part modular case, they still have the polished ceramic tachymeter bezels, and they still, of course, have the caliber 01 movement inside. None of that is changing. What has changed though is the size. The original Replica Rolex Watches are 45mm, and the other updates to the line so far have retained that size. These new watches are a slightly smaller 43mm, which I genuinely think will make them wearable to a whole new audience.
In total, there are six new models. There is a blue dial version with either a steel bracelet or a blue leather strap, a brown dial version with either a steel bracelet or a brown leather strap, and a black dial version with Fake Watches either a steel bracelet or a black rubber strap. All three colors have matching ceramic bezels and bright red accents and chronograph hands. One of the reasons for the large, 45mm- case in the original models was to offer lots of space to view the skeletonized movement, and there’ still plenty of room to do so in these new 43mm Carreras.
