The TAG Heuer Carrera Plasma Chronograph Tourbillon 44mm Replica , with 124 diamonds totaling 15.5 carats.The case is where the magic is really happening. Constructed entirely of anodized aluminum, the new Carrera Plasma features the same Carrera form with sandblasting and a black DLC coating creating a canvas for 48 lab-grown diamonds to be set in the case itself.
The bezel features a further 26, while the new, matching aluminum bracelet rounds things out with 34 more and a steel folding clasp. The visual effect is exceptionally modern, a truly avant-garde take on more ostentatious blinged-out watches, which gives the impression of flowing shards having radiated from the twinkling dial. Standing out above all the rest, though, is the 2.5-carat diamond crown.
Like the other lab-grown diamonds, this is made with Best Tag Heuer Replica partner Capsoul, and grown in the shape of the crown.

The Tag Heuer look alike watches main dial features a lighter plate than the two darker 30-minute and 12-hour chronograph subdials; these plates are created by growing a vast number of diamond crystals as one. The matte black lacquer hour and minute hands feature Super-LumiNova, while the central chronograph seconds hand is rhodium plated. The use of black lacquer and matte finishing should improve legibility compared to using rhodium plating on all three.
Less resplendent but more horologically intriguing is the in-house Calibre Heuer 02T Nanograph visible through the sapphire-glassed caseback.Built on the base of the short-lived CH80 movement, the Heuer 02T was one Jean-Claude Biver’s early moves during his tenure as the head of TAG Heuer.

The Luxury perfect Tag Heuer replica watches cage is crafted from titanium for the middle section and carbon fiber for the top part, all in an effort to keep the weight down to a minimum, which in turn helps increase power reserve and chronometric performance. Speaking of which, the movement runs at 28,800 vph with a power reserve of 65 hours and is COSC-certified at -4/+6 seconds per day.
Looking at this new model, the original release truly feels restrained and unfinished, as if Tag Heuer copies cheap ebay wasn’t quite sure about the idea and wanted to test the waters. Now, the Carrera Plasma finally feels complete, with a bezel and a proper bracelet that allows the design to flourish. Let’s hope the next iteration has diamond chrono pushers. Unsurprisingly, production will be limited, though it’s unclear what the final numbers will be.
