What We Know
High quality TAG Heuer replica watches’ 60th-anniversary celebration continues apace, and today the brand is looking toward the future with a completely reconceived Carrera chronograph in two color configurations: steely blue and reverse-panda black. The model is being touted the “Glassbox” for its domed, curved, crystal, which pays homage to similarly domed hesalite crystal designs from the 1970s.
This new Glassbox design allows cheap UK TAG Heuer fake watches a new unique way to display the inner tachymeter scale. Where it has typically been displayed – flat – on the outer edges of the dial, now it slopes down, matching the curvature of the crystal.
On the blue dial model, the three-register dial includes a minimalist small-seconds subdial at six o’clock which is paired with a date aperture. Conversely, the black dial model takes the reverse panda into the 1:1 online replica watches’ seventh decade featuring three silver-toned subregisters, and a date aperture at – gasp – 12 o’clock. But there’s historical precedent for this. The reverse panda takes inspiration from classic Carrera models of the past like the ref. 3147 Dato 12, (the first Heuer Carrera with chronograph and calendar functions), and the reference 2447NS.
These two color variations bring completely different looks to the perfect copy watches – one being decidedly modern by way of the blue, and then there’s the black – where the past meets the future. They both share the same 39mm case and newly re-shaped pushers.
Inside the top replica watches is a newly evolved version of the Heuer 02, called the TH20-00 featuring an oscillating weight that offers bidirectional winding (previous iterations only charged the mainspring if the rotor moved in a counter-clockwise direction). It offers 80 hours of power reserve, and higher-grade finishing, and joins the latest series of TAG Heuer movements.
The blue dial model comes equipped with a matching blue leather strap, and the reverse panda is fitted with a black racing strap.
What We Think
I’ve never been so surprised by Swiss movements TAG Heuer super clone watches. I had the chance to see this one in the metal, and its redesign really is a confluence of two design styles: the vintage and the hyper-modern.
On one hand, you have the sloping dial, and the aggressive markers with the sunray finish. But then you have old-school typography for the numerals on the tachymeter scale. And in the case of the reverse panda, you get touches of faux-patina and the callback to the Dato via the 12 o’clock date window.
I was psyched to see this was released in a 39mm sizing, but it got better once I put it on my wrist. In my experience, AAA TAG Heuer replica watches wear quite large. This one felt like a vintage piece. It honestly felt like a 36mm chronograph. Now I only had the chance to handle the blue dial, but there was something about its unabashed sense of modernity that really worked for me. TAG Heuer seems to be operating with confidence when it comes to the future of its most important line.
I’m looking forward to seeing the reverse panda (plus an even wilder 42mm “Glassbox” tourbillon model) once I hit the Watches & Wonders trade floor. But for now, I can confidently say that this fake watches wholesale represents a really positive shift in the future of this brand, and I’m glad that shift is being led by the Carrera.
