The 40MM Best Wholesale Panerai Radiomir Quaranta Goldtech Fake Watches For Canada

What We Know

In recent years, Panerai has been notably slimming down the giant replica watches for sale it’s known for. For instance, we’ve seen 40mm models introduced to its diving-themed Luminor line. Now that rollout is hitting Radiomir. 

Quaranta means forty in Italian, and after launching several top CA fake Panerai Radiomir Quaranta eSteel watches for the Chinese market earlier this year, a more precious Goldtech model now joins the line-up.

Quaranta means forty in Italian, and after launching several Radiomir Quaranta eSteel models for the Chinese market earlier this year, a more precious Goldtech model now joins the line-up.

Goldtech is cheap Panerai replica watches’ version of Rolex’s Everose or Omega’s Sedna Gold, which the Swiss-Italian watchmaker says features a mix of platinum and copper, all serving up gold with a redder hue. Goldtech is now used across the portfolio, from the Submersible to Luminor collections.

The new Radiomir Quaranta in Goldtech has a smart-looking polished gold case and matching bezel, complemented by a white sun-brushed dial that’s been given a galvanic treatment. 

While the latter is not new to watchmaking, it’s quite new at Panerai, and offers a more traditional and refined look. The signature sandwich dial is also quite clean, with only numerals at 12 and six o’clock, indexes for the rest, with a date window at three o’clock and small seconds at nine. There’s an oversized transparent sapphire caseback, showcasing the P.900 automatic movement. With a lug-to-lug ratio of 48mm, the luxury copy watches comes in at just 10.15mm thick, making it the slimmest case in Panerai’s entire portfolio.

Most notably, the watch is waterproof to 50 meters. This is higher than the typical 30 meters you’d usually find across Panerai’s collections (it also ups the 30m waterproofness of the first eSteel Radiomir Quaranta models). As ex-military timepieces, Panerai famously puts it Swiss movements super clone watches through their paces in terms of waterproof and water pressure testing, with rigorous standards that the company says tests watches at the indicated depth plus a buffer of 25 percent, to ensure extra safety.

What We Think

Ask long-time watch enthusiasts what makes them keep wearing a watch over time, and comfort and classic styling will be a recurring trait. Hence, it’s not surprising that perfect Panerai replica watches is moving in the direction of more popular sized, slimmer and wearable designs. 

The brand may have made its name in oversized hamburger fake watches online – picked up by fans who loved the Italian military and frogmen connections – but equally, Panerai fans have been asking for more wearable sizes, and the brand must evolve and play the long game. The company may date back to 19th century Italy, but it only began commercial watch production in 1992 (1997 for the Radiomir), with historic models shrouded in military secrets. By the way, 1992 isn’t much earlier than when Richard Mille or FP Journe started, and indeed Panerai has always had the feel of a young watchmaker despite being 163-years strong.

This new Radiomir Quaranta in Goldtech essentially offers fans a Panerai-styled dress watch. It’s classic 40mm size, compact lug-to-lug measurement and refined thickness will easily slip under a dinner jacket, as the polished gold finish adds a touch of elegance to the evening. I expect new clients as much as existing Paneristi die-hards will like the AAA China fake watches, the latter especially, who now have an additional dress option while still being able to keep things in the family, so to speak.

The 40mm size is a big deal – and a big jump down from 45mm, the next available size in the Radiomir line – and I expect we’ll see more Quaranta iterations in the coming years. The Quaranta name is also clear, digestible and very Italian, semaphoring the brand’s DNA well as it seeks a broader base.

Finally, the 50m waterproofness is an important development, and which will satisfy those Paneristi die-hards and frogmen fanatics. Radiomir Quaranta Goldtech may not have the typical wrist presence that Panerai is known for, but the technical specs still make a statement.

Top Online Replica Watches For Canada Best For The Sophisticated

In this new article is that for this list, we insist that the best replica watches also feature serious complications. Most of them are gemset, thus the OTT theme, but the first one is not! This list is one for the sophisticated rapper, footballer, gangster, or your average sheik.

Replica Rolex Cosmograph Daytona Rainbow Watches

Not to be outdone, the world’s largest luxury watchmaker makes it to this list. With the ultra desirable high quality replica Rolex Daytona watches clad with rainbow gemstones.

What’s that to say about this CA cheap Rolex copy watches? It is a Daytona win 18k Everose gold, with matching bracelet. And is adorned on with diamonds on the lugs and crown guards. But the most eye catching element is the gradation of hues made by the sapphires in gradations of colours of the around the bezel. And with 11 baguette-cut sapphire hour markers, each of which matches the colour of the corresponding point on the bezel. Rock up almost anywhere with this 1:1 fake watches on your wrist, and you automatically become the fuse of the party!

Fake Hublot Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami All Black Watches

The fusion house of AAA Hublot replica watches online is no stranger to over the top. From its early days, they were the dare devils in the use of interesting materials. Like rubber for straps, and they were outrageous enough to infuse the rubber with scent, making some rather interesting smelling straps. But that was even before Jean-Claude Biver has put his magic finger on it. And ever since JCB breathed more live into it than ever. And the brand has maintained a strong interest in the likes of rappers, footballers, and gangsters. So they have many OTT super clone watches for sale to pick from. Like the Masterpiece 03 which is outrageous, but does not even need any gemstones to claim notoriety. Or as we are perhaps best described as conservative, our pick is the Murakami All Black.

The perfect replica watches looks very attractive despite its all black color. The spinning dial with all 456 Black Diamonds, with Murakami’s signature petals rotating on a ball bearing system spins like a weighted rotor. And the contrasting satin-polished ceramic surfaces make for a highly reflective timepiece.

Andy Warhol’s Perfect Canada Fake Patek Philippe 2526 Watches (And Other Great Pateks) At Sotheby’s

It’s pretty easy to start an argument between AAA CA replica watches enthusiasts: Toss out a couple of reference numbers and have a strong opinion, loosely held, about why one is so much better than the other, and stand back as chaos ensues.

Last week, I trekked to New York’s Upper East Side to preview the upcoming Sotheby’s Fine Watches sale, part of its Luxury Edit of sales across high quality fake watches, jewels, spirits, and other such temptations. You might be thinking, “but Tony, isn’t every week a Luxury Edit at Sotheby’s on the Upper East Side?” to which I’d reply yes, of course. But not every week has a Warhol up for sale – especially one that has nothing to do with painting.

We’re talking here about the artist’s very fine pink gold 2526. Along with that singular Calatrava, I found a handful of the Pateks that were best considered in pairs, so I thought I’d lean into this and set up a Patek battle royale.

I took three pairs of Pateks – perpetual calendar chronographs, modern chronographs, and pocket replica watches for sale– and chose a (completely subjective) winner from each. Let’s have some fun, and hang on for a closer look at Andy Warhol’s Calatrava at the end.

Patek Perpetual Calendar Chronographs: 3970 v. 5270

The Patek Perpetual Calendar Chronograph reference 3970 copy watches wholesale is about as good as it gets (and “as good as it may ever get”). Produced from 1986 until 2004, the 3970 was the successor to the 1518 and the 2499. The perpetual calendar chronograph is the most important complication combo to Patek – what the Daytona is to Rolex, the perpetual calendar chronograph is to Patek.

I never really thought about the 3970 much until I tried one on for the first time and my heart became full knowing that this perfectly sized (for me) 36mm luxury replica watches is the one I’d lust after for the rest of my life. I’d never seen a 3970 in platinum with a black dial in person before, which made this example at Sotheby’s all the better. It gives the 3970 a slightly sporty vibe, which is weird to say given what this watch is, not to mention the serif typewriter font, apertures, and other classic cues.

The 3970 was the first perpetual calendar chronograph to use a Lemania-based movement, and it represents Patek sticking to its traditional complications and sizing, even as the watch world around it turned upside down in the ’80s. It’s everything that can be great about modern and vintage Swiss made fake watches.

For me, the 3970 is perhaps the best complicated watch ever made.

Meanwhile, the 5270 comes from a different era. Introduced in 2011, it was Patek’s first in-house perpetual calendar chronograph. Unlike its predecessors – the 3970 and the 5970 – it didn’t have immediate appeal. It was too big or too bulky (on the wrist, this 5270R is actually quite wearable); there was even a “chin” that collectors loved to complain about for a while. This 5270R at Sotheby’s comes from 2018, and luckily by this point, Patek had arrived at a more balanced design.

Still, every single element of the 3970 feels so tight and considered, especially when put next to the 5270. The 5270 isn’t a bad watch at all – on the contrary, it’s amazing cheap replica watches! Patek holds six patents on the in-house caliber 29-535 PS, the chronograph operates smoothly, and the finishing is excellent; Paul Boutros, now of Phillips, did an excellent in-depth review of the 5270 way back in 2014.

Very different questions were being asked of Patek in the ’80s and in the 2010s, and I tend to like its answers to those challenges from the ’80s more. In 2018, Cara wondered why results of the 3970 always felt a little softer than they should – and in the last couple of years, they’ve crept upward. At Sotheby’s, these two perpetual calendar chronographs have the same high estimate ($120,000); I’m choosing the 3970EP every day.

There’s a reason Mark and I paused to get a wrist shot with the 3970 and not any of the other super clone watches online. Winner: Patek 3970EP

Patek Chronographs: Patek 5070P v. 5170P

The battle between the 5070 and 5170 is kind of like comparing our perpetual calendar chronographs. The 5070 came first, introduced in 1998 as Patek’s first chronograph in about 30 years. It was big, measuring 42mm, a departure from Patek’s traditional tendencies. Like the 3970, the 5070 also uses a Lemania caliber as its base. Because the Lemania base is a little small for the case, much of the design is dictated by the desire for larger replica watches for men – a wide, double-stepped bezel, multiple tracks on the outside of the dial, even the perfectly symmetrical subdials.

While they shared Lemania ebauches, that’s about where the similarities end for the the 5070 and the smaller 3970. If the 3970 was Patek’s commitment to traditional watchmaking, the 5070 was Patek announcing itself on the modern stage.

The 5070 has always had a bit of a cult following, and no doubt, if you’re going to get one, it’s the 5070P. Patek produced the 5070 for a decade, finishing off its run with the gorgeous 5070P we see here, making this final platinum reference with a blue dial for just one year or so, from 2008 to 2009. Maybe 250 were made.

Still, I prefer the 5170. Purists point to different features of the 5170 and 5070 to defend their allegiances, but for me, the smaller proportions and old-school design of the 5170 have a more enduring appeal.

The 5170 was a different first for Patek, its first reference with an in-house chronograph caliber. Similar to the 5070, Patek produced the 5170P for just a year from 2017 to 2018 towards the end of the reference’s run. You’ll look at the fake watches shop for a few seconds before you remember that, oh yeah, those are baguette diamond indices (!) applied to the sunburst blue dial.

Here’s the great thing about both of these chronographs. They’re legitimately rare (produced for one year each), interesting, and important to the story of modern Patek. I doubt either reference is about to explode in value over the next few years. Collectors buy these best quality Patek Philippe replica watches because they’re in too deep, love them, and realize that they’d be crazy to spend the same amount of money chasing whatever steel sport watch happens to be hyped. Prices for the 5070 have been relatively flat over the past decade, and the 5170 is still too new to really say how “collectible” it’ll be.

For me, the 5170, with its high estimate of $80,000, presents more value than the 5070P (high estimate of $120,000, though it’ll probably sell for more like $200,000). But if you love the 5070, I’m not going to tell you you’re wrong. Winner: 5170

Canada Luxury Audemars Piguet’s New Perpetual Calendar Replica Watches Are So Advanced You Won’t Have To Reset It For Nearly 400 Years

The Audemars Piguet Universelle RD#4, with 40 functions, including 23 complications and 17 technical devices, is the fourth in its series of Research and Development watches, building and elaborating on innovations from the first three. The series reasserts best replica Audemars Piguet watches’ status as one Switzerland’s most important heritage watchmakers (one of the so-called holy trinity, along with Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin). It reminds us that there is—and always has been—more to Audemars Piguet than the Royal Oak, just as there is more to Patek Philippe than the Nautilus. As if to reinforce that, the RD#4 is debuting in the Code 11.59 collection, whereas the first three were all Royal Oaks. Given that RD#4 was inspired by AAA CA fake Audemars Piguet pocket watches made in 1899. With 26 functions, including 19 complications, it is a serious supercomplication.

Introducing the RD#4 in the Code 11.59 line is a shrewd juxtaposition that links high quality Audemars Piguet replica watches’ heritage as a producer of ultra-complications with its most recent collection, almost a century later. It aggregates the innovations from AP’s first three RD pieces, including the Supersonnerie technology unveiled in RD#1 (2015), the ultra-thin perpetual calendar movement launched in RD#2 (2018) and the oscillator with increased amplitude premiered on the two Royal Oak Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon Extra-Thin RD#3 models (2022).

The movement, automatic caliber 1000, was seven years in development and comprises over 1,100 components. The 23 complications include all the big ones: grande sonnerie supersonnerie, petite sonnerie, minute repeater, perpetual calendar, split-seconds flyback chronograph, flying tourbillon and moon phase. The 17 technical devices refer to mechanisms incorporated into the movement that optimize functions, including a dedicated swivel clutch on the chronograph to avoid stutter on the seconds hand when activated, a silent strike-speed regulator on the chiming mechanism and the forward/backward fast date corrector on the 3 o’clock crown.

Given its multitude of functions and components, the Audemars Piguet RD#4 copy watches for sale should be the size of a hockey puck, and it might have been had it been made a century ago. Thus, its most important feat is arguably one of micro-engineering: it fits into a case measuring only 42mm x 15.55mm. Audemars Piguet technical director and well-known watchmaker Giulio Papi says the goal was to make it wearable. “This ultra-complication is the culmination of several decades of research, design and manufacturing of many different types of complicated mechanisms that have put ergonomics at the forefront of the process,” he says. “We believe that a mechanical function with an ergonomic focus opens a new path for Audemars Piguet and the watch industry as a whole.”

Another of its great features is the simplification of the pushers and correctors, narrowed down to three crowns on the right and three discreet pushers on the left, that are almost flush with the case. The three crowns wind the Swiss made replica watches, set the time and date with the central crown and select the chiming mode (grande sonnerie, petite sonnerie or silence mode). The top pusher starts the minute repeater function, and the two lower ones correct the moon and day indications. The flyback chronograph can be started and stopped with what cheap Audemars Piguet super clone watches calls the “supercrown” at 2 o’clock, and then reset with the other “supercrown” at 4 o’clock, which also corrects the month in sync with the year, in either forward or backward modes.

The chiming function includes the patented Supersonnerie technology, introduced in 2015, which, instead of attaching the gongs to the mainplate, attaches them to a component acting as a soundboard that improves sound transmission. The mechanism is optimized in the perfect replica Audemars Piguet RD#4 watches by placing it in a dedicated double caseback system with a “secret” extra-thin cover and a new soundboard, just 0.6 mm thick, made of sapphire crystal, on which the gongs are mounted. It took three years just to develop a water-resistant sapphire component with the right geometry and thickness to act as a soundboard. The double caseback system brings the mechanism into view, whereas before it was hidden on the caseback side by the technology’s resonance chamber. To optimize energy management and distribution, the chiming functions are fed by a dedicated barrel.

The perpetual calendar builds on the patented innovations of caliber 5133 in the 1:1 China fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin RD#2 prototype watches, which merges the perpetual calendar functions onto a single level. It displays the day and month at 9 and 3 o’clock—in subdials or windows (depending on the model) that are slightly elevated in order to give space to the tourbillon carriage at 6 o’clock. The date is shown in a window at 12 o’clock, and instead of including a leap year indicator, it shows the year in a small window at 4:30. This one is a semi-Gregorian perpetual calendar, which, unlike the Gregorian calendar, will need manual correction every 400 years instead of every 100. It will not need to be reset until 2400.

A larger mainspring barrel was developed to power the hands, chronograph and calendar functions, while the chiming complications are fed by a dedicated barrel. This more powerful mechanism, introduced on the RD#3 Royal Oak Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon Extra-Thin, gives the 2023 replica watches some 60 hours of power reserve.

Each of the four references—two skeletonized versions and two with dials—are unique pieces (which, of course, means price upon request). But there are three more that are reserved for VVIPs to customize through special order.

Audemars Piguet Just Dropped 7 Stylish New Royal Oak Fake Watches Canada Wholesale

Getting ahead of the onslaught of best replica watches releases slated to hit at the end of next month with the annual Watches & Wonders show in Geneva, Switzerland, Audemars Piguet just announced a slew of new Royal Oak models to whet collectors appetites. And there are some serious heavy hitters.

The highlights? An 18-karat gold model with a turquoise dial (to join its top competitors in the lucrative trend), an 18-karat white gold “Jumbo” Extra-Thin sporting a handsome new blue-grained dial and a Selfwinding Chronograph in black ceramic (the brand’s other iterations of Royal Oak’s in the material have famously done well in the secondary market).

But how will you get your hands on one? Unless you are already at the top of AP’s VIP list, it can only be done with deep pockets and plenty of finagling and campaigning, no doubt. For those that cannot get the blessing of buying these five-figure AAA Canada fake watches at retail, the good news is the company just announced that it will be launching its own certified pre-owned company by the end of the year. Happy hunting.

Replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding Watches with Turquoise Dial

How do you keep pace with your competitors (Patek Philippe and Rolex) when they are making headlines with turquoise dial steel sports watch models that are commanding a markup of 6 times the original retail price (Rolex) to a whopping 57 times original retail (Patek Philippe) in the secondary market? You drop a solid 18-karat yellow-gold sports replica watches for sale with a dial made of literal turquoise (the stone, not just the color). It is equipped with the latest selfwinding hour, minute, seconds and date caliber, the 5900, introduced just last year. In addition, this marks the first time a 37 mm Royal Oak has been in yellow gold since 2018 and each dial is unique due to the different machining and finishing techniques required to accommodate the natural composition of each stone. And speaking of the size, it makes for a rather attractive proposition as it can be worn by all genders, and for slimmer wrists, it’s just large enough to compliment an aesthetic that is already meant to garner a room full of looks. It’s a vibe.

Fake Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph Watches in Black Ceramic

This is the first high quality copy Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph watches in 42 mm to be housed in an all-black ceramic case. The case and bracelet material has been massively popular in other models, most recently the Audemars Piguet Black Ceramic Royal Oak Selfwinding Chronograph and the Royal Oak Selfwinding Carolina Bucci Limited Edition. The black ceramic case and bracelet along with the black Petite Tapisserie dial, previously exclusive to 26238 references in gold or titanium, offers a striking monochrome look while the white markers and 18-karat white-gold bezel screws offer a sharp contrast that is both aesthetically appealing and functional for legibility. The hour and minute hands, small seconds at 6 o’clock, chronograph minutes at 9 o’clock and chronograph hours at 12 o’clock are outfitted with lume for an extra layer of visibility by night. The piece is powered by the 4404 caliber, an in-house integrated chronograph movement featuring a column wheel construction with a flyback function. Unlike its traditional counterparts, this chronograph can be restarted without having to first stop and reset it. For a discreet pop of color, a 22-carat pink-gold oscillating weight engraved with the AP initials can be seen through the sapphire crystal caseback. If you are looking to exude stealth baller status, this piece may be for you.

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak “Jumbo” Extra-Thin Replica Watches with Blue-Grained Dial

As seen above, a simple dial change can make a big difference. Here, the coveted “Jumbo” Extra-Thin fake watches shop received a boost with a handsome blue-grained dial. The decor is inspired by a 1992 model created for the 20th anniversary of the Royal Oak collection. The dial texture was achieved by using a blue-tone PVD with a translucent coating using a finer and brighter grain that pops more significantly in the light. Not surprisingly, this 39 mm by 8.1 mm 18-karat white gold update is a limited edition, which means it will be even harder to get retail than other Royal Oaks. Housing the latest ultra-thin 7121 movement introduced last January with an 18-carat pink-gold rotor visible through the caseback, we think it’s worth the fight.

Price: $78,300

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Chronograph Fake Watches in Black Ceramic and Yellow Gold

Another perfect replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore watches to receive the black ceramic treatment was elevated a touch further by adding 18-karat yellow gold for a striking two-tone combo. The Offshore line is celebrating its 30th anniversary, so you can expect more hits from this particular collection throughout the year. At 43 mm, this is a heftier timepiece and to match its more sizeable presence, this iteration comes with a Méga Tapisserie decorated dial (larger squares in the waffle pattern).

The yellow gold flourishes extend to the caseback where it frames the sapphire crystal revealing the 4401 flyback chronograph movement in a column wheel with a vertical clutch construction. As with the black ceramic offshore above, it also offers the wearer the ability to start, stop and restart the chronograph in one action. The hands start and stop without the sense that the hands are jumping forward making for a smoother transition. The patented zero resetting mechanism allows the counter hands to instantly reset to zero.

Whether you will be timing anything other than how fast it takes someone to notice your wrist candy, however, remains to be seen.

Replica Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding 34 mm and 37 mm Selfwinding Chronograph Watches in Blue Smoked Dials

There is nothing wildly different in the trio of 18-karat white gold Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Selfwinding super clone watches site released save for small nuances that may sway a customer between the brand’s various offerings. Without having seen these pieces IRL just yet, the smoked blue dial is a deeper, moodier hue than previous iterations in steel featuring a Bleu Nuit, Nuage 50 dial. Those luxury replica watches also came with diamonds on the bezel, but the distinction in dial color here is likely to accentuate the fact that these are the more elevated purchase due to the white gold casing. The midnight-looking hue is achieved through PVD, while the smokey effect is executed by spraying colored varnish onto the dial’s periphery while the dial is rotating. It has a nice effect on the Tapisserie dial that is surely more striking in person.

Savvy insiders will be able to distinguish that your Royal Oak is a cut above the rest thanks to this regal new hue distinction.

TAG Heuer Is Still Really Good At Vintage Tributes And This 60th Anniversary Replica TAG Heuer Carrera Watches Wholesale Canada Prove Why

It was once considered to be the most dangerous automotive race in the world, and then it ended. The Carrera Panamericana did more than just leave legendary racing stories behind. It would inspire one Jack Heuer to take the name Carrera and turn it into equally legendary Swiss made replica watches. So legendary in fact, that when the name Carrera is uttered, you’re more than likely to see an image of a chronograph in your mind before you start daydreaming of open-road racing.

The first Heuer Carrera was released 60 years ago, and you know TAG Heuer isn’t letting an anniversary pass it by. In fact, the brand has plans for a roll-out of celebratory pieces throughout the year and it’s kicking things off with this 600-piece LE: The AAA Canada fake TAG Heuer Carrera Chronograph 60th Anniversary edition watches. I wrote the introductory coverage of this watch before we knew what it would look like in the metal. Now we know, and now you have pretty, real-life pictures to look at.

To put it bluntly, this anniversary TAG Heuer should look pretty familiar to you. It presents the same 39mm case sizing that you know, as well as handsome throwback design work in the execution of the dial. You basically think you’re looking at vintage high quality replica watches, but it has the feel of something far more modern – with a great movement to back that up.

Honestly, I have always gravitated towards this side of perfect TAG Heuer copy watches, the Heuer output. To me, it represents a low-risk way for the brand to give the enthusiast crowd what it longs for while simultaneously being able to deliver larger, more modern designs for those that might look at this new anniversary piece and say “I don’t know, it looks old.” This shoulder shrug from “normies,” is really the secret sauce we all want. A watch in a conservative size, with a pared-down, vintage-inspired design. This is especially true when those designs come from a house with as much heat in its archives as TAG Heuer has.

One such heater is the famed Carrera 2447, which we’ve covered at considerable length. It’s the genesis of the luxury replica TAG Heuer Carrera watches in many ways, though with this year’s celebratory piece, TAG decided to go with a slightly rarer execution: the 2447SN with its panda dial layout.

It was that very panda aesthetic that had us excited to see this one IRL. And it doesn’t disappoint (it would be very hard to mess this kind of thing up). The 39mm sizing is really great on the wrist and the contrast of the black subdials against the silver dial really elevates the vintage appeal. There are touches of faux-aged lume on the hands and the lume plots above the hour markers, but those are really more like flourishes that warm up the otherwise stark design.

By not using tritium (for the record, that’s something you only find on real vintage 1:1 fake watches), the dial has been made cleaner by virtue of there being less text to deal with. We have an almost imperceptible Swiss on the six o’clock subdial and then up top we’re left with the classic Heuer wordmark and the Carrera name. Crispy and clean.

This “let it breathe” layout really helps the sunburst effect on the silver dial to shine. You can feel the texture as your eyes slowly make their way to the subsidiary registers in their concentric glory. At three we have our minutes counter, at six our running seconds, and at nine our chronograph hours. The chronograph seconds hand itself is fashioned in metal without lume, allowing it to blend in effectively.

For legibility, the sub-register hands are white. Basically, you get a sense of purpose-built vintage design when looking at this modern reincarnation. This is a luxury chronograph based on a true tool – even if we may not quite have the same use for it today.

While this piece showcases the Heuer 02 Automatic beneath an exhibition caseback, it doesn’t interfere with the otherwise old-school design. And that’s for a pretty obvious reason: the caseback sits atop your wrist and is therefore hidden from view. For your eyes only (or if you choose to show it off to some friends and get them hooked on this very addictive hobby).

On the wrist, with the compact pushers, this wears exactly how you would want a watch like this to wear: just right. And the choice of pairing the super clone watches shop with the black racing-style leather strap only enhances the high-contrast look of the panda dial. I’m a sucker for this kind of chronograph by nature, but I still think TAG Heuer did a really nice job with this recreation of sorts. It’s only a 600-piece limited edition, and I have a suspicion it won’t be around too long.
