There is a certain amount of nostalgia inherently associated with Luxury Replica Watches, and brands like TAG Heuer are acutely aware of this. Whether it be the romanticized art of traditional horology, or simply remembering the days when we didn’t have dozens of screens shouting alerts at us when we only want to know the time. It is part of why many of us love watches. They give us a special feeling that our day-to-day lives don’t provide.
The first result of the TAG Heuer x Nintendo collaboration came in the form of the TAG Heuer Connected x Super Mario, which focused on the incorporation of video game-style achievements into the interactive fitness tracker with a touch of classic Mario-inspired features. The long-awaited second collaboration is here in the endlessly fun form of two limited-edition chronographs. The Best Replica TAG Heuer Formula 1 x Mario Kart Chronograph and Chronograph Tourbillon are pure unadulterated playfulness blended seamlessly into the celebrated racing chronograph platform.
They feature bold colors and textures in a robust tool-Cheap Tag Heuer Replica package. However, the longer you look, the more you begin to notice the “easter eggs” that make these quirky chronographs bring a smile to your face. Both chronographs share the modified tonneau-style case of the Heuer Autavia 1163. The cases are topped by a fixed gear-toothed tachymeter bezel with a polished black ceramic insert emblazoned with “Mario Kart” and are filled with Swiss Super-LumiNova®.
A familiar Calibre 16 vertical chronograph display is present with the minute totalizer at 12 o’clock, hour totalizer at 6 o’clock, and running seconds subdial at 9 o’clock. The first and most prominent of easter eggs is found in the running seconds subdial. In place of a 60-second index is a vibrant applied marker featuring Mario himself racing The Toad Kart. The second easter egg can be spotted on the date wheel. Every fifth day on the date wheel is replaced with a different power-up, ranging from Starman to the frustrating banana and other recognizable characters.
The High Quality Tag Heuer Replica Watches Calibre 16 is an automatic chronograph that operates at 4 Hz (28,800 vph) and has a 42-hour power reserve and this limited edition has a water resistance rating of 200 meters. The screw-down crown has a bright red lacquered Mario ‘M’ and a matching lacquer ring around the 2 o’clock pusher. The same M can be found on the deployant clasp without the lacquer filling. The solid steel caseback features an engraved Mario racer silhouette similar to that on the seconds subdial and limited-edition text.
Rendered in a 45mm-wide grade 5 titanium case, it is surprisingly wearable. Both watches may look fairly unwieldy on my small 6.5” wrist, but the tourbillon felt much more manageable due to the weight reduction benefits of titanium. The crown has the same lacquered “M” found on the standard chronograph variant and is made of steel along with the pushers. The pushers provide a crisp and tactile activation of the red lacquered seconds hand. A black skeletonized dial features vibrant red bevels that give way to a matte asphalt-gray plate providing high contrast and depth. Behind a bright applied TAG Heuer Swiss Replica Watches shield logo at 12 o’clock is a wheel motif reminiscent of the dial skeletonization. The real treat, of course, is the tourbillon.
The same attention to detail is prominent throughout the dial with highly polished rhodium-plated hands and markers. Flipping the Famous Replica Watches over you are treated with an equally fun and impressible view of the movement through the sapphire caseback. A bright red column wheel stands out against the monochrome finish of the movement and the rotor features a deep engraving of Luigi, Mario, and Princess Peach in their Karts. This in-house chronograph tourbillon movement runs at 4Hz allowing a power reserve of 65 hours and is rated for 100 meters of water resistance.
