The new Cheap TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph 39mm “Glassbox” Replica is a balanced, stylish, and smoothly futuristic bellwether for the future of TAG Heuer’s longest-running chronograph line, with a look that straddles a difficult line between classically subtle and eye-catchingly different.
The underlying case design — the sharply angled lugs, the stout pump pushers, and the sleek brushed case sides — is familiar visual territory for the modern Carrera, with a footprint on the wrist that nearly matches the brand’s current 39mm-wide Heuer-stamped “reissue” Carreras.
Of course, that’s not the impression this Luxury Tag Heuer Replica gives at first glance, thanks to its bombastic, deeply domed, wall-to-wall sapphire crystal. There’s zero bezel at all here, and the arc of the crystal extends down nearly all the way to the vertical plane of the case sides.
As with the case, the dial of the TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph 39mm “Glassbox” blends classic series staples with light, avant-garde new elements. Each iteration of this design takes its dial in a markedly different direction, and the “Panda” colorway seen here is by far the most vintage-inspired.
The other major visual shift for this new model comes at 12 o’clock, where TAG Heuer includes a bright, contrasting white date window. This 12 o’clock date display is unique to the “Panda” dial option, and isn’t totally without precedent in the Swiss Carrera Replica Watches line, as several early references including the ‘60s-era Heuer Carrera Date 12 ref. 3147 used this unorthodox date placement.
On the visual side, the changes are more immediately apparent. The Heuer 02 is a fairly skeletonized design, with a narrow web of bridges exposing a large portion of the overall gear train. By contrast, the TH20-00 used here appears much more robustly built, Buy Luxury Replica Watches Cheap with fewer cutouts and a broad plate covered in Côtes de Genève. The overall finishing is clean and sporty, consisting mostly of striping across plates and bridges, along with the new shield-motif cutout rotor.
This new rotor offers a simpler, more graphic look than the brand’s previous wheel-spoke design, with a raised brushed segment outlined by a lower matte blasted layer. Although so much of the Tag Heuer Replica Watches reinterprets the Carrera formula, the rally-style perforated black leather deployant strap is purely traditional Carrera fare.
