A Elegant Timepiece Of Tag Heuer Carrera Heuer-02t Tourbillon Replica
Well, for the first paragraphs of this article about the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T Tourbillon Replica, we’re going to hide our usual alertness and critical approach, and first focus on what we are looking at. Using the same concept as the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-01 introduced at Baselworld 2015, the brand now updates its modern and masculine replica watch with only (understatement to say the least) a new movement, featuring of course a chronograph but mainly, a one-minute tourbillon regulator, placed at 6 on the dial and working like every tourbillon you’ll see on the market. This proposition isn’t just impressive; several other brands with sports-oriented replica watches already introduced such replica watches, like Bell & Ross with the BR-X1 Tourbillon, and Montblanc with the TimeWalker ExoTourbillon Minute Chronograph LE100. The TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T Tourbillon is nothing revolutionary, technically speaking. Except one big thing: TAG achieved to develop, manufacture, assemble and encase a chronograph with tourbillon, and for a price of just under 15,000 Swiss Francs – which is approximately 5 to 10 times less expensive than other replica watches with a chronograph and tourbillon escapement (except the Montblanc that was the most affordable with a price just under 40k.)
The new TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T Tourbillon has the same approach as the brand used for the Carrera Heuer-01. It features a modular construction of the 45mm case, allowing to easily create several styles (which is in fact already the case as TAG introduces this replica watch in two editions: a titanium and black edition, and a full Phantom black one.)
A central part, lugs with an independent central insert, a separated bezel – the case comprises 12 modular components. Then, like the Carrera Heuer-01, the new TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T Tourbillon features a semi-skeletonized dial – in fact the dial is transparent and composed a sapphire crystal with applied register tracks for the sub-counters, and applied indexes, which reveals the skeletonized bridges and plates of the movement. The main spring barrel can be seen at 12 and several wheels are visible thought the sub-dials. Of course, the main attraction of the dial remains the tourbillon cage at 6.
TAG Heuer Men's Replica claims that the movement of the Carrera Heuer-02T Tourbillon “was developed directly from the DNA of the CH-80 chronograph“, the movement that we kind of applauded a few years ago, a new integrated automatic chronograph movement, developed in-house, which was later cancelled – see the story here. So, this new replica watch relies on the CH-80 movement as a base, meaning an automatic winding movement, with integrated construction for the chronograph that is actuated by a column-wheel. The movement boasts a respectable 65 hours of power reserve and will be COSC certified (just in case those saying that a tourbillon priced so low can’t be precise; now they can’t say it anymore).
