Evidently, I’m very demanding when it comes to matters pertaining my replica watches. In my opinion, quality is everything. Well, a replica is just a replica but that doesn’t mean we go buying something short of a great replica. Durability, reliability and accuracy are the key qualities I always look for every time I order a new imitation watch. Now, one decade has passed since I overheard of the Tag Heuer Formula 1 Chronograph Black Dial Red Bezel Red Numerals 622407 Replica watch. I just acquired this Tag Heuer Formula 1 Black Dial Replica and within no time, I develop guilt feelings as to why I didn’t order it before. You may think that’s because of the encounter with the amazingly low price offered by https://swissmade.sr, but that’s not it.
See, this heavenly watch’s styling evokes its racing heritage. Just like its genuine counterpart, it has racing stripes on its bracelet – along with a logo that reads simply “Heuer” in homage to its pre-TAG origin − and a perforated strap. This watch’s black rubber strap with Tag Heuer engraved ion-plated hook-buckle clasp bracelet measures 205 x 21 mm and it’s very comfortable. Nothing scratches, pinches, or rubs. The buckle clasp and supple calfskin strap both feel pleasant on the wrist.
The movement is a Japanese Miyota, with Quartz (Battery) specifically for TAG. The movement’s configuration enables TAG to place the crown on the left side of the case. It’s quite reliable and accurate. What’s more, thanks to its battery’s durability, it will take years before need for replacement come knocking.
As in the original, the chrono pushers are on the right and the Tag Heuer logo engraved ion-plated cutwork crown with two push-button crowns on either side of it on the left. Having the crown on the left gives the watch historical accuracy and an unusual look to boot, but does it offer any practical advantages? One benefit is clear: assuming you are wearing the watch on your left hand, the crown won’t dig into the back of your hand when you bend your wrist sharply, to do a few push-ups, for example. Unfortunately, a right-handed wearer must take the watch off before he can wind or set it because he’ll find it cumbersome or impossible to operate the crown with his right hand. Notably, this Tag Heuer Formula 1 Black Dial Replica bears the old “Heuer” logo, which was used when the Tag Heuer Formula first came out.
The 15 mm thick Ion-plated case has many chamfers and edges. The borders between polished and satin-finished surfaces are very precise. No doubt that it’s highly detailed and distinctively shaped. It’s set in bushings that protect them from impacts and give them greater hold, thus minimizing wiggling. The case back is a brushed stainless steel snap-in back with Tag Heuer engravings. It has a Red enamel bezel with tachymeter that perfectly accentuates the black dial.
The 52 x 45 mm black dial achieves a very successful retro auto-racing look by eliminating numerals to mark the hours and minutes. The dial’s legibility is a great achievement. Its components are laminated thus ensuring vivid visibility irrespective of the surrounding conditions. Above it lays the sapphire glass that acts as a protector of the inner details while increasing visibility as well.Any watch enthusiast will be quick to pinpoint the following pertaining this elegant Tag Heuer Formula 1 Black Dial Replica.
- Attractive styling
- Good craftsmanship
- Comfortable to wear
- Greatest deviation of rate is too high compared to the genuine counterpart.
Compared to its genuine model, this watch is very cheap. It’s also lighter than the latter. The red enamel bezel is also paler on the genuine watch. Well, those are the only variations I’ve detected after a lengthy comparison of almost a month. You can always do more, you know…
Finally, just like a candle lights another, man also enlightens man. Fortunately, regarding this, I think you should also know that these watches are water resistant but not waterproof. As such, do not go swimming with them or taking showers with them. Taking the watches underwater will revoke their guarantee.
