TAG Heuer – watches that inspire (my favorites)
This time as you can expect I will reveal my favorite watches from the Tag Heuer – great and valued brand creating timepieces since 1860.
First of all, when I look on this brand I imagine fast racing cars, speeding at the race-track. It will be the true pleasure to show you some interesting watches, which inspire me and wind up my passion to the watches.
|CALIBRE 5 Day-Date|
I’ve chosen this watch, because of its very stylish and elegant design. Carrera collection associates with the racing sports. This model is in my opinion little exception, which is more elegant than sporty, making this watch very versatile. I really like this watch in two configurations : Black dial with the steel bracelet and white dial with brown leather strap. Except basic hour, minute and second hands we get day and date window at 3 o’clock. Under 41mm case we can find self-winding automatic Calibre 5 movement with the power reserve of about 38 hours. There is a curved sapphire crystal with double anti-reflective layers.
Water resistance in this watch is 100 meters. Caseback in this watch is also covered by sapphire crystal.
|CALIBRE 16 Chronograph 41 mm|
A watch that is made for high-speed and races. Black bezel presenting tachymeter scale for average speed measurement. Three, big chronograph’s counters adding this watch more firm and racing style. As the watch I was reviewing earlier (Calibre 5), this watch has 41mm case also. Under this case, self-winding chronograph Calibre 16 movement enclosed is. This chronograph features functions like running seconds in small dial at 9 o’clock, 12-hours counter at 6 o’clock and 30-minutes counter at 12 o’clock. Date window is positioned at 3 o’clock along with the Tag Heuer logo.
|Monaco Calibre 12|
And finally, Tag Heuer Monaco Calibre 12 – the most favorite watch of mine, which found its place in my TOP 5 watches of all time list. Such similar model is Calibre 11 in limited edition created specially for the 40th anniversary, which I adore too. Magnificent, appealing 39mm square case, one of the most extravagant shape of the cases. Elegant watch with undeniable vintage racing design, which knocks me on knees. At 6 o’clock it is a small date window. Chronograph presents 30-minutes counter at 9 o’clock and seconds counter at 3 o’clock in white square subdials on both sides of the watch. Luminescent indexes and hands provide visibility in dar light or underwater. Water resistance is 100 meters as earlier mentioned watches. Sapphire crystal covers front and the caseback to provide extra durability.
