If you dive, there’s a pretty good chance that you don’t do it in your own backyard — or even in your own local time zone, for that matter. So, it goes without saying that the added functionality of an extra time zone on a dive replica watch makes a whole hell of a lot of sense — it’s just a shame that there really aren’t that many of them out there. TAG Heuer seems to be doing its best to add to the mix with a new blue-dialed Aquaracer GMT equipped with a bi-colored aluminum 24-hour bezel.
At 43mm and with a richly detailed blue dial, I’m pleased to see thatFake TAG Heuer didn’t increase the case size of the already very bold Aquaracer to accommodate the added utility of the GMT.
As it stands, you can simply use the bezel to read a second time zone, function as an AM/PM indicator, or use as a rudimentary timing device by using the pip at 12 o’clock as a cardinal marker.
The collection has also seen a wide range of purpose-built complications over the years, ranging from highly specialized deep-sea divers, ana-digi quartz dive timers, regatta timers, and classic mechanical dive chronographs. But there had never been a GMT — until 2017, when the Tag Heuer Aquaracer GMT Replica, with its bright two-toned “Pepsi” bezel, joined the fold.
Seeking to buttress its position as the leader in ultra-precise mechanical chronographs, TAG Heuer Replica launched a concept watch, the Mikrotimer Flying 1000. It did what no previous mechanical timepiece could do: measure intervals to the nearest 1/1,000-second. Like the 1/100-second Mikrograph, this model had two separate power trains, each with its own oscillating and escapement system.
This spring works in tandem with a specially conceived lever escapement. The Tag Heuer Replica Watch balance spring’s vibrations are started and stopped with the aid of a column-wheel-controlled impulse-and-braking system, which acts directly on the balance spring’s staff.
The center-mounted elapsed-seconds hand sprinted around the dial 10 times per second. To read elapsed time to the 1/1,000-second, you had to add the 1/100 and 1/1,000-second quantities, shown on two scales by the long, green center-mounted chronograph seconds hand, to the 1/10-second measurement shown on the subdial. The AAA+ Tag Heuer Replica had a power reserve of just 3.5 minutes. The time-of-day function worked in the conventional manner, using an oscillator with a frequency of 28,800 vph.
Carrera Heuer 02 Tourbillon Chronograph
The movement of this watch was derived from TAG Heuer’s in-house chronograph movement, Caliber CH-80, whichFake TAG Heuer launched in 2014.The watch has a flying tourbillon, 32 mm in diameter and made of titanium and carbon. The movement, which has a single barrel and is COSC-certified, has a power reserve of about 65 hours. TAG Heuer makes the main movement components itself and assembles the movement at its factory in Chevenez.The case, like that of the Carrera Heuer 01, is modular and has 12 parts.
TAG Heuer has brought out sparkling new emerald green versions of their ever-popular Replica Aquaracer 300m diver for both men and women. The new watches take their inspiration from the rich mix of blue and green shades to be found in the world’s oceans.
Go For Green
The latest iteration of the Aquaracer stands out as a color not generally chosen for a dive watch. AAA TAG Heuer Replica has created two green-dialed Aquaracer 300m models that offer functionality and plenty of eye-catching cachet in or on any terrain.
The 43 mm Aquaracer Fake Watchhas a green dial that creates an eye-catching light display thanks to its sunray effect. The horizontal lines that run across the dial are designed to resemble the wooden docks where sailboats are moored. There’s a date window at 3 o’clock on the dial, with the numerals on the bezel filled with black lacquer, and the familiar Aquaracer triangle marker at 12 o’clock.
There’s a smaller counterpart at 32 mm. It also features the same emerald green sunray dial, but for this model, there are no horizontal lines. Instead, it is decorated with graceful diamond hour markers. The ladies Replica Watch has the same date window at 3 o’clock on and the Aquaracer triangle marker at 12 o’clock.
Both watches are crafted from stainless steel and presented on stainless-steel bracelets, each with a diver’s extension.
