TAG Heuer has today revealed the initial novelties from its 2017 watch collection, with 4 new versions introduced in Geneva around the yearly SIHH watch program. Yes, around SIHH as opposed to at SIHH, as we’ll explain shortly.
The new releases consists of a support of Carreras and Aquaracers as well as works as the entree before the main course of 2017 versions that will certainly comply with in March at Baselworld.
The Background of SIHH and Fake TAG Heuer
Prior to 1990, things were relatively direct in the watch globe, with all significant brand names releasing their new period sees each March at the Basel watch fair. Nonetheless, in 1990 the Richemont group (which today consists of Cartier, Jaeger LeCoultre, IWC and also Panerai), chose to break away from Basel as well as create their own exhibit, called Beauty parlor International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH). And also to make certain that Richemont brand names had a chance to load their order publications from stores prior to the Basel brand names opened theirs in March, SIHH was arranged for January each year.
As the Richemont stable of brands expanded, others such as Audemars Piguet also signed up with SIHH meaning that there are now two yearly watch fairs instead of one, developing a massive headache for retailers and the globe’s watch media who make two trips to Switzerland within a 6-week duration.
Yet given that the target market for these shows is truly the globe’s watch retailers as opposed to customers, the Basel brands determined that they also would release some watches in January each year to make sure they are not failed to remember. These brands are obviously not welcomed to SIHH, but that doesn’t mean they can’t hold their own occasions in Geneva when everybody occurs to be in town!
Which is a long way of discussing why these new TAG Heuer Replica Watches launches are happening in Geneva in January … however not “at” the SIHH program.
Aquaracer 300m Quartz Aluminium Bezel 43mm
TAG Heuer Aquaracer 300m 43mm Red BezelOpening the 2017 collection is a range of quartz-powered Aquaracer 300m designs. While these watches share the very same 43mm stainless-steel case as the Quality 5 Aquaracer 300m versions, the bezel changes from ceramic to aluminium to help maintain the costs down.
The most interesting of the new versions is the red bezel Aquaracer, and while the look could remind you of the Tudor Black Bay, its motivation comes from the TAG Heuer family tree of dive watches.
Aquaracer WAY101B- Red Bezel
TAG Heuer Aquaracer 300m 43mm Red Bezel WAY101BThis version looks excellent, with the plain black dial contrasted by the red bezel, red “300 meters” marking and the tipped red sweeping secs hand. You could distinguish the lack of referral to a Calibre that this is a quartz-powered watch.
TAG Heuer’s first venture into red bezel diving watches was the TAG Heuer 1000, which you could see listed below from the 1989 Brochure. Like the 2017 model, this too was only offered with a quartz motion.
TAG Heuer Carrera Day-Date Calibre 16 Titanium CV2A84The next design is a development of the hugely effective Carrera 43mm Calibre 16 Day-Date The dial has been revamped with reshaped characters (the originals were motivated by the 2005 Vanquish) which are completed in off-white SuperLuminova, complemented by a distressed brownish natural leather strap.
The original- 2008 Carrera Calibre Day-Date.
The instance stays at 43mm and is made from Grade 2 Titanium, which TAG Heuer replica says is “black PVD titanium”. It is likely that the situation has a titanium-carbide finish, considered that PVD is a process for applying a layer as opposed to a finish material itself.
Black, brownish and also beige doesn’t specifically look like a natural colour combination on paper, so we eagerly anticipate seeing exactly how this searches in the metal.
2017 TAG Heuer Carrera Day-Date Quality 16 Titanium CV2A84The caseback appears to show a “stealth” black surface on the Calibre 16 blades and also parts, yet we would certainly have to see this personally to ensure … it’s a huge job to use titanium-carbide to all these individual parts.
2017 TAG Heuer Carrera Day-Date Calibre 16 Titanium CV2A84
Carrera Heuer-01 Complete Black Matte Ceramic- Ref. CAR2A91
TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer Replica Complete Black Matte Ceramic CAR2A91The 3rd brand-new version is a growth of last year’s Carrera Heuer-01 Ceramic, with the 2017 design including a matte as opposed to refined ceramic finish and also boasting the enhancement of a new black ceramic “H-Link” arm band- the initial rubber strap remains a choice.
There’s been some complication regarding this new watch, with numerous websites erroneously reporting that it’s entirely made from ceramic- it’s not. The case, bezel, lugs as well as instance center are made from black ceramic, but the inner box area, screw-down case back as well as chronograph push-pieces are made from steel to allow the gaskets to function correctly.
2017 TAG Heuer Aquaracer 300m Woman BlueThe final new release are six new referrals to the Aquaracer 300m Girl range:
The unique attribute of these watches is using an all-natural mother-of-pearl dial in a semi-transparent blue or black lacquer that provide the watch an unique look.
So do any of these brand-new launches use us any kind of hints on what to expect in March when the bulk of the 2017 collection is introduced? Tough to say, as each of these are expansions on existing lines. Expect to see even more variations of the Carrera Heuer-01 (TAG Heuer’s very successful watch around the world), the new Autavia and an innovative new high-end activity complying with in the footsteps of the Pendulum and also Mikrograph.
Yet will we see an Aquaracer Heuer-01? Even more swiss replica watches using the Heuer-03 motion? And just what about the Web link as well as Formula 1? We’re already eagerly anticipating March!
