Tag Heuer Carrera Calibre 5 day-date Ref.: WAR201C.BA0723
The Carrera is one of TAG Heuer’s more popular collections with numerous series and sub-series.

The difference between the 39mm Calibre 5 and the larger Calibre 5 Day-Date is the addition of the day aperture at the 3 o’clock position. Ever get so busy that you have a day when you just can’t remember what day of the week it is? We all have them once in a while.
This is a 41mm men’s watch that looks like a classic watch but with more modern subtleties. The watch itself is solidly built and feels that way too with its 12mm thick stainless steel case. The model depicted in the image at the very top of this article is reference # war201c.fc6266 which has a clean but classy opaline black dial with a nice micro-textured sunray dial effect.
This particular watch really pops thanks to the contrast between the stylishly beveled and brushed rose gold plated indexes, dark black dial, and the rose gold plated hour and minute hands which contain luminescent fill. In addition to being easier to read, the larger dial makes this a great watch for those with a larger wrist. A jet black crocodile / alligator leather strap sets off the shiny metals used in the watch giving it a slick, jet-set look.
While the rose gold and black model is a classy piece of eye candy, the same watch with steel indexes and hands, reference # war201a.fc6266 has a list price that is slightly less than the one with rose gold-toned accents, indexes, and hands. In fact, all the different models that have stainless steel accents carry a lower list price than their rose gold-toned rivals including those that have a steel bracelet which would normally cost more than one with a leather strap.
