TAG Heuer Carbon Aquaracer Calibre 5 Special Series Hands-on

Moving over ceramics, you have carbon. Carbon fibre is a one-day flavour of the physical world, providing watches with a high-tech stealth look related to the F1 world and racing sailboats. Following Bamford’s highly successful custom Carbon Monaco, TAG Heuer replica watches showed off three Aquaracer models with Carbon fiber detailing and a 41mm black PVD coating ona titanium hull. All three Aquaracers will be distinguished by their color scheme, with the highly anticipated Monaco Bamford set to debut today in March 2018. Before we examine these three models in detail, two things need to be clarified: the Aquaracers are not yet custom made by Bamford, and unlike the Monaco Bamford, these boxes are not made from sturdy carbon fibre. There are carbon fiber details on the case, however, and the good news for Aquaracer fans is that you can get a custom Bamford cool look for about half the price.

There is no denying that the current prevalence of carbon has become Bvlgari’s record of ultra-thin Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater and other highly complex features, as well as sports models such as the panahai lab-id. In keeping with the latest material trends, TAG Heuer brought the transformative power of carbon to its Aquaracer, giving the watch a cooler, more modern look. Assembled with ceramics three years ago to add wear to the bezel, the cheap fake TAG Heuer watches uses a carbon fibre exterior in hopes of attracting millennials who want the next “inside” material. The striking visual effect of carbon is transmitted on the matte mottled surface of the ring and dial.

Compared to other diving watches on the market, the swiss TAG Heuer replica watches feels its own way, and the first impression when handling the 41mm watch is extreme lightness. You can be forgiven for attributing Aquaracer’s lightness to the “carbon” region in its name, but in fact, it is due to the titanium casing and its sleek black PVD coating. Lightness is a definite advantage for many buyers, allowing you to wear the watch without having to pump iron before strapping it! With its 300m-depth credential, the spiral bottom cover is also made of titanium and comes with a black PVD and a diving helmet in the center. With its 41mm diameter and short lugs, the watch will sit right on most wrists.

The blue, yellow and rose gold on the dial stand out from the three Aquaracer models. In my opinion, the yellow model is the most lively and attractive of the three, with the canary-yellow second hand, minute track and marker on the best fake TAG Heuer wactches UK dial, and in sharp contrast with the soft matte tone of the dial. The blue model is reminiscent of Monaco Bamford’s aqua-blue counter, the rose gold model, if you will, the lowest iteration of the three. The large face and application index (polished and rose gold paint or plated black gold, depending on the model) is full of grey super-luminova, and the 3 o ‘clock date window enhances the magnifier.
