What We Know
We’ve just finished another hot lap around the sun, and perfect replica TAG Heuer has spun up another reimagination of a beloved classic with the new “Glassbox” Carrera, this time in a “Dato” variant with a teal green circular brushed dial. While we at Hodinkee might have a soft spot for a certain other Dato, this is another step forward for luxury fake TAG Heuer UK as the brand brings the “Glassbox” treatment to every old standard of the brand’s heritage – and it’s done to good effect.
Instead of following the brand’s full history and starting with the ill-fated “date-at-12” debacle, which was loathed because the chronograph hand covered up the date when the timer wasn’t running, cheap replica TAG Heuer has gone straight to the nine o’clock date layout, with a 30-minute counter at the three o’clock position. The rest of the dial is clean, showing off the circular brushing of the teal green dial that can shift between hues of blue or green depending on the angle at which you view it. Around the outside are rhodium-plated, polished, and faceted hour markers accented with dots of Super-LumiNova. The hours and minutes hands also have Super-Luminova (but not the chronograph hand, so no timing laps in the dark).
The aaa quality replica TAG Heuer UK has the same form factor that seems to have become the standard for the Carrera Glassbox lineup, measuring 39mm by 13.8mm thick, with a polished and brushed stainless steel case and nicely faceted lugs. The Swiss movement copy watches come on an alligator leather strap with stainless steel deployant. And, of course, being a Glassbox design, the watch has that domed crystal that allows you to view the chronograph elapsed seconds timer from a variety of angles.
Inside beats the automatic Calibre TH20-07 (hours, minutes, seconds, chronograph, date – you know the drill) with a whopping 80 hours of power reserve. That’s a column-wheel, vertical clutch chronograph that’s been a mainstay of the brand, modified for the dial and date layout of the new Dato copy watch.
This new high quality replica TAG Heuer “Dato” will run you $6,550 and is available immediately.
