Cheap Tag Heuer Carrera Heuer-01 43mm Replica Watches For 2017

For 2017, Cheap Tag Heuer Replica has updated the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-01 43mm watches with skeletonized dials and some new color options, which provides a good opportunity to briefly reflect on the intricacies of this piece.


You see, at times when most major brands so scarcely gather the courage, resources, designer talent, and/or whatever else it would take, it was understandably refreshing to see the Tag Heuer Replica Watches Carrera Heuer-01 make its debut… as much as two years ago already. In the intervening time, TAG Heuer has also stepped up their game at delivering the different iterations of the Heuer-01 to retailers – supplies in places were reportedly limited – and now it is just down to creating yet newer versions around the solid foundations that this iteration of the TAG Heuer Carrera provides.


I have worn for quite some time and have extensively reviewed the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-01 chronograph back in 2015, which I liked for many reasons – its large 45mm case not being one of those things. The large-watch craze was at full swing when the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-01 was designed, but not even that powerful trend could inflate my wrists to better accommodate the Heuer-01 and its long, “decidedly Carrera” lugs. Thankfully, TAG Heuer has realized that there clearly is room for a smaller-sized Heuer-01, which neatly brought us what we are looking at here: the descriptively named Tag Heuer Replica 43mm.


Now, when we first saw these “downsized” pieces in early 2016, they exclusively came with solid dials, maybe to further emphasize how these were the more scaled-back versions. Now, for 2017, TAG Heuer debuts three new skeletonized versions in black, blue, and brown. That’s Intense Black, Deep Navy Blue, and Cognac Brown if you for some reason prefer fancier names for the same thing.


The bezel is in matte ceramic, and the cases are brushed steel. The Cheap Replica Watches Carrera Heuer-01 43mm’s front is covered by a domed sapphire crystal with antireflective coating on both sides, and the crown features a rubber piece wrapped around its brushed steel core. There is a lot happening on the dial, but all these new pieces have received the updated date aperture at 3:30 after public outrage over the not-so-legible skeletonized black numerals over a dark background on the prototype debut versions.If you want better legibility and a more timeless chronograph design, you’ll likely want to go for the models with solid dials. Still, I want to see these new 43mm versions hands-on because I have a feeling that the skeletonized, more busy-looking dial will actually work really well with this slightly smaller and, I would venture saying, more proportionate design.


The movement, protected by a 100m water-resistance rating, is the Heuer 01, making this watch, as Replica Watches says, “one of the very few 100% manufacture chronographs available for less than 5,000 CHF.”

Cheap Tag Heuer Replica Connected Modular 45 Smartwatch Aims To Be Eternal

Today, Cheap Tag Heuer Replica debuts the follow-up smartwatch to their successful TAG Heuer Carrera Connected from 2015. It isn’t just a new product, but a sign of a long-term investment in the category of smartwatches. The 2017 TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 smartwatch is an upgrade across the board both as a digital connected wearable device and as a modern luxury product. Modern utility as well as future “eternity” are key components of this new high-end timepiece’s value proposition. Cheap Replica Watches wants this “Swiss Made” smartwatch to be useful as a piece of modern technology today, while also desirable as a timeless item to wear tomorrow. Let’s see how they went about engineering that for what is among the neatest-looking smartwatches I’ve worn to date.

Last month, I spoke with TAG Heuer CEO Jean-Claude Biver about the upcoming Connected Modular 45 watch. He explained some of his overall philosophy toward the next smartwatch from what is traditionally a mechanical Tag Heuer Replica Watches maker, as well as what he and the company learned after putting the first Carrera Connected smartwatch on the market. For Jean-Claude Biver, it seemed that the two most important elements in the Connected Modular were both a celebration of its status as a “true” Swiss Made product, as well as the ability of the product to last beyond the normal ownership expectation period of most consumer electronics purchased today. He knows that smartwatches last only a few years in terms of their utility, but wants to make sure that consumers remember that “mechanical watches will work 1000 years from now as long as there is someone who knows how to operate a screw driver.” Dissect that statement as you like, but it is more than well-known that watch consumers feel comfortable buying mechanical watches at high prices precisely because they do not fear “further obsolescence.”


A lot of people speculated about exactly what the “Modular” part of the upcoming product’s name would mean. Even though the Tag Heuer Replica has now debuted, there are still a lot of questions about the future of the product and what TAG Heuer will release for it. The promise of being able to swap out certain components for cosmetic or technical upgrades is a key part of the product’s appeal, and one can only guess what new modules TAG Heuer will release in the future. It is also important to explain that even though TAG Heuer now has a facility in Switzerland to assemble its smartwatches, it continues to have close ties to Intel. TAG Heuer even employed a former Intel worker to run its connected watch division, which is located in Palo Alto, California – the heart of Silicon Valley.


This is very important because it shows TAG Heuer understands what is required to seriously develop not only a family of smartwatch products, but to also continually support it through software updates as well as maintain close connections with other technology products. Cheap Replica Watches own team easily remarks that the biggest difference between a mechanical watch and a smartwatch from a company perspective is that work on the former ends when it leaves the factory, while work on the latter continues almost perpetually.
TAG Heuer claims that 56 case style combinations are available to begin with, but that only 11 of them will be available in retail stores. The other 45 will be available as a special order purchasable online or in retail stores. These latter options will, for the most part, be the colorful aluminum bezel options that mark the sportier, more youthful look of the watch. I personally really like the PVD-coated matte black titanium case with the black ceramic bracelet. The black and blue bezels are in ceramic, while there are also a few steel bezel options as well.

When the original Cheap Tag Heuer Replica came out, it was loaded with a few attractive TAG Heuer-branded dials, but I never felt that TAG Heuer continued to supply enough really compelling ones for people to download post-launch. TAG Heuer agrees, though they are much more invested in offering software updates moving forward. An interesting new feature for the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45, in addition to a reported 30 included dials, is the availability of software known as TAG Heuer Studio. While I don’t think the software will allow for true graphic design of new dials, it does promise a healthy assortment of personalization options within the many available dials to change colors and other features to personalize the look of one’s Tag Heuer Replica Watches.


Modularity for the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45 is thus an important strategic element of the timepiece’s appeal for a range of consumer types, price points, as well as the ability for the watches to have appeal to owners in the years (as opposed to months) to come.
