TAG Heuer revamps the domed crystal design found on early Carrera models for a new generation. The new TAG Heuer Carrera “Glassbox” collection, including two variants of the Cheap TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph 39mm Replica and the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph Tourbillon 42mm, combines dramatic new case design, newly updated in-house movements.
Although the new Carrera Chronograph 39mm is naturally significantly smaller than the Carrera Chronograph Tourbillon 42mm, both designs offer a similar overall style in images. As the name might suggest, the crystal is the heart of this new design concept. This tall, dramatically arched sapphire crystal extends from one edge of the case to the other, giving the series an unusual, truly bezel-less look in photos.
Naturally, Tag Heuer Replica Watch adds a sapphire display window to the casebacks of both the Carrera Chronograph 39mm and the Carrera Chronograph Tourbillon 42mm, and rates both designs for a respectable 100 meters of water resistance.The core of the series is the blue dial variant of the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph 39mm, which presents the most balanced and modern look of the trio.It’s a subtle change, but one that injects a sportier, more contemporary energy into the Carrera platform.
The rest of the dial layout is more familiar Carrera fare, including the striped baton handset, azurage Swiss Replica Watches subdials, and minimalist running seconds subdial at 6 o’clock, but even these more traditional elements receive gentle tweaks to better fit the new design concept.While basic concepts like the dial hardware, radially brushed dial surface, and the distinctive chapter ring remain, there are a number of changes that pull this model more towards the Carrera designs of the ‘60s.
Rather than the compact, pleasingly busy layouts of the 39mm models,High Quality TAG Heuer Replica looks to accentuate the broader dimensions of this piece with a more open, airy presentation. Without a tachymeter scale, the chronograph seconds display is moved to the outer segment of the chapter ring, resulting in far more negative space than the 39mm-wide models.
Overall, the tourbillon display here is clean and athletic, with a trio of radially brushed skeleton arms forming the tourbillon cage while a chamfered and polished outer ring draws the eye towards 6 o’clock in photos. However, the way this tourbillon window cuts deeply into the chapter ring at 6 o’clock may draw the ire of some enthusiasts.
TAG Heuer Replica equips the Carrera Chronograph Tourbillon 42mm with its in-house TH20-09 automatic tourbillon chronograph movement. Just as the TH20-00 is an updated Heuer 02, the TH20-09 is a warmed-over Heuer 02T movement and offers many of the same technical advantages over its predecessor.
TAG Heuer fits all models in the Carrera “Glassbox” collection with classic calfskin leather deployant straps. For the black dial Carrera Chronograph 39mm, the brand opts for a sporting perforated rally-style strap in black, while both the blue Copy Carrera Chronograph 39mm and the Carrera Chronograph Tourbillon 42mm with dial-matching solid straps in navy blue.
