TAG Heuer Boutique
This time we visited the store in the SKP mall, and we came to the TAG Heuer boutique at D1052 on the first floor of the mall, and we admired the very representative masterpieces of many brands in the store up close. Below, please join us to appreciate the design details of several watches in the store:
TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-02T COSC Swiss Official Observatory Certified Automatic Tourbillon Chronograph
First of all, I bring you the Carrera series tourbillon watch under TAG Heuer: this watch in the picture is a classic tourbillon watch with a more complicated design under TAG Heuer. The Carrera series of watches are internationally renowned for their cool and domineering racing chronographs. In terms of chronograph functions, in 1969, TAG Heuer, as one of the watchmakers in a joint research and development project, launched the world’s first automatic chronograph movement, Calibre. 11. It brings a very profound significance to the development of the follow-up movement, and also provides valuable experience for many complex movement modules nowadays.
The column wheel, the chronograph bridge, the hollow rotor and the bridge are all in gorgeous black finish design
The above chart model is equipped with TAG Heuer’s now very outstanding HEUER-02T in-house movement. This movement perfectly integrates two of the most well-known complex devices in the traditional watchmaking field: the chronograph function and the tourbillon. It has a diameter of only 32 millimeters, and its interior contains a total of 12 modular components such as a single barrel, multiple timing functions, automatic winding devices, and a floating tourbillon. How should these components be tightly laid out? In order to solve this problem, the brand specially developed a new industrial frame. Starting from the design concept of the Monaco V4 watch, 4 watchmakers carefully crafted a lightweight tourbillon frame, and the middle part of the inner lining is made of titanium and the top is made of carbon. It can provide a power reserve of more than 65 hours for the watch.
In addition, in order to ensure that the watch can still keep accurate time under the premise of providing the timing function and the operation of the tourbillon, its time part has also been strictly certified by the COSC Swiss Official Observatory Testing Agency, which is very rare. After all, for modern tourbillon watches, it can ensure the smooth operation of various functions while also taking into account the accuracy of travel time, which few brands can do today.
In appearance, this watch uses “black gold” to create a unique style of “handsome” and “luxury” coexisting on men’s wrists. The watch uses black stainless steel to make the case, and the sides are treated with a wire drawing process, which is strong and scratch-resistant; the lugs are treated with a gold PVD coating process to create a mysterious and noble black gold atmosphere.
In addition to the crown, there are two cylindrical chronograph buttons on the side
The watch also has a gold bezel and crown, with black lettering on the bezel and black non-slip treatment on the crown. The two tones are matched very cleverly without being overstated or understated. The atmosphere is just right.
TAG Heuer equipped this watch with a mysterious and cool hollow dial, which uses the very classic 3-6-9 dial layout of racing timepieces: the 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock and the 9 o’clock position It is a 12-hour chronograph disc, all treated with gold plating, and a one-minute flying tourbillon frame is set at 6 o’clock. The hands and hour markers are coated with Super-LumiNova® fluorescent material to ensure that they are clear and easy to read in the dark.
Watch with black alligator leather strap and black rubber lining
The advantages of this Carrera Tourbillon watch in the same level of tourbillon watches are still very prominent. In addition to the classic black appearance, its internal optimized structure and lightweight tourbillon design are very avant-garde, and its interior It is also certified by the Observatory, which is very suitable for hands-on play. This watch is priced at RMB 198,600 in the store.
TAG Heuer Monaco series replica watch
The other one recommends one of TAG Heuer’s very classic masterpiece series-Monaco series watches. In the shop this time, we found this very classic Monaco replica watch in the picture above. This watch in the picture is a very orthodox replica model, the prototype is the first Monaco watch of TAG Heuer in 1969 .
As soon as this replica was launched, it was loved by watch friends who love racing at home and abroad. In 1969, the birth of the TAG Heuer Monaco series overturned the Swiss watch tradition, and was rewarded by its appearance in the well-known films “Breakfast”, “Fast and Furious”, “Breaking Bad”, “Infernal Affairs” and other movies With countless watch fans, he has become the most popular cool king at the moment.
The watch pictured above perfectly restores the classic design of the original model at that time from the appearance: classic blue dial, sturdy stainless steel material, polished and finely frosted, and presents a charming texture. The diameter of the watch is 39 mm, regardless of whether it is male or female. Both can be worn.
In addition, the most significant design of this watch is that the crown is still placed on the left side of the case, continuing the classics and inheriting the tradition. At that time, the significance of this design was that in order to show the audience that the Calibre 11 chronograph movement inside the Monaco watch did not need to be manually wound, this 6183 also perfectly restored this classic detail.
Under the arched sapphire crystal mirror are fiery red hands and simple time scales and function displays. The chronograph sub-dial and date display window are evenly distributed on the dial surface. There is a square seconds counter at 3 o’clock at 9 o’clock. There is a square minute counter at 6 o’clock and a calendar display window at 6 o’clock. The hand-inlaid fluorescent hands and hour markers appear to be extremely quiet and elegant between the dials. The logos of MONACO and Heuer are inlaid at 12 o’clock.
The simple lines of the watch highlight the modern style. The angular lugs and the case form a unified style. The racing-like perforated leather strap shows the retro style. It is matched with a stainless steel folding clasp with a brand imprint on the outside. The transparent sapphire crystal case back shows the charm of the TAG Heuer Calibre 11 automatic movement.
This 6183 Monaco replica can be said to be the most classic and unique masterpiece design in the Monaco series of masterpieces under TAG Heuer, and its historical masterpieces are also of great value at the auction. Friends who are interested in Monaco watches, This replica masterpiece is still worth buying. The watch is priced at RMB 47,100 in the shop.
Summary: The above two watches are the classic works that I saw in the SKP TAG Heuer store in Beijing this time, whether it is the more expensive Carrera tourbillon complex chronograph or the design follows the traditional 6183 Monaco replica , In its price range of the same level, the advantages are extremely prominent, the technical level and appearance are perfect.
