When all of us took attention to the first day of the 2019 SIHH, Replica TAG Heuer has gone and silently announced a technologically coveted timepiece that utilizes a totally new hairspring made of carbon composite, which has never been produced before. Actually, this new technology was developed by themselves and they hold the patent for it as well. The watch is all about showing off and celebrating that new technology in a watch that also pays a tribute to TAG Heuer’s history through the Carrera case and name.
In fact, this replica watch is very much an evolution of the Carrera Heuer 02T, a watch that shook up the industry in 2016 by providing a Swiss tourbillon timepiece at an incredible price never heard before. Based on 45mm case of that watch (rendered here in blacked-out titanium with a carbon bezel), TAG Heuer replica has improved basically every aspect of the movement to the next level. The hexagon motifs are filled with decoration of the whole thing, a reference to the nanoscopic hexagonal structure of the carbon used in the hairspring, the dial and rotor have both been openworked to let you see more of the movement, and the aluminum balance wheel is set with both white gold weights and white Super-LumiNova so you can see it beating away in the dark. Neon green accents add further drama, ornamenting everything from the tourbillon cage to the column wheel.
