People who have been pursuing TAG Heuer fake watches in the past few years have seen tremendous changes.
The original introduction was Heuer 01, then Heuer 02T, and now 02 GMT Twin Time. Let you be familiar with the new era of TAG Heuer process development. The TAG Heuer 02 movement is based on the CH80 in the late 1960s and can be found in several watches, such as the recently relaunched Autavia. But today, we are looking for a different series. Carrera Calibre Heuer 02 GMT 45mm. let’s start?
TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre Heuer 02 GMT 45mm Review
TAG Heuer has always been known as a chronograph. Therefore, don’t be surprised that all the next large-caliber movements are also chronograph movements. Both Heuer 01 and Heuer 02 have stopwatches. Derivative movements such as the Heuer 02T tourbillon chronograph, due to the types of complications they contain and their sophisticated astronomical clocks, as well as the prestigious COSC certification pedigree, have higher complexity and the price is incredible .
However, today, we will discuss the more practical features added by movement 02. Of course, this is GMT, which provides a dual time zone for watches. This automatically makes the price of Carrera Heuer 02 GMT different from the price of the 02T tourbillon, because GMT is more practical and less complicated than the tourbillon. This is the perfect choice for jet pick-ups and frequent travelers.
Generally, the appearance of the Heuer 02 watch is very similar to that of the previous Heuer 01. Except for the Autavia Heuer 02 and Heuer 02 Hiroshi Fujiwara limited editions, all dials on the TAG 02 powered watch are skeletonized.
When will TAG Heuer 02 be launched? The fact is that TAG Heuer first announced the intention to reform the CH80 in 2014, but focused his attention on Heuer 01 based on the 1887 movement for a long time, and then re-examined Heuer02. They first introduced some models of tourbillon using 02T. As a marketing strategy, it has attracted the attention of watch enthusiasts all over the world. Soon after, this was a wise tactical move, and they announced the more mainstream TAG Heuer 02 GMT Twin Time watch.
Today, TAG Heuer has attracted everyone’s attention and they have bought more practical watches at more practical prices. Performing this operation exactly in this order greatly improves the reputation of the Caliber 02, and it may not be a coincidence. Just before the more affordable model entered the open market, this made the Carrera 02 GMT 45mm Twin Time more desirable and worthy of attention.
In the past ten years, the wind direction of the watchmaking industry has been slowly changing. Many watchmakers who rely heavily on the Swatch Group to provide ETA movements or ébauche movements are unable to obtain movements if they are group brands. . Therefore forced to become more independent, or at least become more resourceful.
However, with TAG Heuer’s long history in watchmaking, this is no longer a challenge, but actually an opportunity. Since Heuer 01 based on the 1887 movement, things have been rising. Now, with Heuer 02 making waves, watchmakers and cheap replica watches enthusiasts begin to cherish true respect for TAG Heuer for many years. Let’s take a closer look at the movement to see why this is special. Can we?
Looking at the movement is half the fun, but understanding the other half is fun. As with all 02-powered chronographs, the movement of the column wheel is very smooth, so that the start and stop of the pointer will not jump like most CAM-driven chronograph mechanisms. This metallic red cylindrical wheel can also be seen through the transparent case back cover.
The mechanical movement itself is both sporty and beautiful. The smooth Geneva wave stripes and the hollow black rotor with the exquisite brushed surface and red carved lettering complete it perfectly. The movement is a 4Hz movement, which beats at 28,800 VPH. It contains 39 jewels and has an amazing power reserve of about 80 hours.
There are currently two models available: one on the brushed and polished steel bracelet with the model cbg2a1z.ba0658, and the other on the rubber strap with a belt buckle on the model cbg2a1z.ft6157.
The dial layout is very spectacular, with a blue edged small seconds counter perfectly positioned at 6 o’clock. The entire design is very symmetrical. The small dial with silver-colored chronograph is located at 3 and 9 o’clock on both sides of the dial. The shining brushed and polished decal hour hand is at each hour mark, and the double mark is at 12 o’clock. The finely printed second and minute-second hands are printed on the dial flange.
You can even position the letters in a position that perfectly balances everything. Between the 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock positions is “Carrera Heuer 02”, and on the left between 7 o’clock and 10 o’clock is “automatic timing”.
The central red pointer of Greenwich Mean Time has an arrow design and is filled with luminescent material. The GMT pointer only rotates once every 24 hours and points to the white 24-hour numbers, which can be seen printed between the illuminated index hour marks.
The date window is located between 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock, and the figures use a hollow black coated template style font that emphasizes the date through a white background.
One of the most striking features of this Swiss Replica watches is the split scratch-resistant ceramic bezel. The metallic color of the lower half of the bezel is almost cobalt blue, while the upper half is black. A 24-hour indicator is engraved around the bezel.
This color combination makes one of the most popular Rolex watches so famous, namely GMT BLNR, also known as Batman Rolex GMT. However, TAG Heuer 02 GMT 45mm is not like it. It has its own unique and unique appearance. They do not need to take over the success of another already successful watch from a more popular brand. Carrera Calibre Heuer 02 GMT is its perfect choice.
