TAG Heuer has injected advanced material technology into the most affordable tourbillon chronograph on the market to create the Bold & Surprising Replica Carrera Plasma Tourbillon Nanograph.
The new watch makes extensive use of carbon in various forms, most notably the carbon composite hairspring and the dial and crown made entirely of synthetic diamonds, reflecting CEO Frederic Arnault’s interest in technology and industrial processes.
Cheap Tag Heuer Replica has developed a suite of cutting-edge technologies that are unusual in its price range, although the brand’s most important innovation, the carbon-composite hairspring, never really got the recognition it deserved. Unlike typical gem-setting, synthetic diamonds are set on the case in an abstract fashion, commensurate with its unconventional status. Combined with the synthetic diamond dial and crown, the result is a watch that is both eerie and eye-catching.
But more important than the decorative use of rhinestones is another form of carbon in watches. Both the hairspring and the tourbillon cage are made of carbon composite material, which is great for keeping good timekeeping. The carbon hairspring is light, strong and non-magnetic, while the carbon cage is equally lightweight. Together, they increase the efficiency of the movement by reducing the energy required to move the tourbillon.
A product that took off in the mid-20th century, synthetic diamond has long been used in industrial applications such as diamond tools or abrasives. They are also used in cheap jewelry, but almost never in expensive jewelry or Tag Heuer Replica Watches.
The world of high-end mechanical watchmaking is no stranger to lab-grown diamonds, although they used to be used only for functional parts. In 2007, Ulysse Nardin first introduced a synthetic diamond coating for silicon escapement components as a way to increase hardness and wear resistance.
In contrast, plasma uses synthetic diamonds purely for aesthetic purposes. It cleverly exploits the versatility of synthetic diamonds to form the dial and the geometry needed to perfectly set the Tag Heuer quality replica watches case.
The entire dial is made of diamonds, including the chronograph. Each counter is made of a single piece of polycrystalline diamond and is attached to a brass base, the same structure as the main dial. This represents a new approach to textured, reflective dials, often relying on galvanic treatments, PVD or lacquer finishes.
Also of note is the crown, a 2.5 carat solitaire diamond made by Capsoul. The size of the crown, along with the 48 larger diamonds on the case, perfectly illustrates the advantages of lab-grown diamonds. It is impossible to cut a natural diamond into the necessary shape.
Mechanically, the movement is identical to the standard TAG Heuer grade 1 replica watches, except for the carbon composite parts in the tourbillon and the decoration on the movement bridges.
While not as novel as a carbon hairspring, the carbon cage is still functional. It solves one of the biggest inherent problems of the tourbillon: the enormous amount of energy expended by rotating the cage, which can affect timekeeping if this is not taken into account during the construction of the movement.
