Collaborative design is nothing new in the modern luxury watch market, and the new RUF x Bamford x Highsnobiety – AAA TAG Heuer Carrera Replica is an interesting attempt to push the boundaries of co-branding, with a clean and vibrant look that belies its complexity background story. Measuring 42mm wide and 14.4mm thick, the stainless steel case of the TAG Heuer Carrera is more or less inherited from the Carrera line with the standard production Heuer 02.
All the hallmarks of the Carrera collection are reflected in the image, including the distinctive inwardly bevelled lugs and the narrow sloping polished bezel. The biggest visual difference comes from the Cheap Tag Heuer Replica sapphire display case back, which uses not one but three printed logos. Although the RUF logo, the Highsnobiety logo and the text at 6 o’clock all look sharp and sharp, they do noticeably blur the view of the movement in the initial image. Like the standard production Carrera, this model offers a solid water resistance of 100 meters.
The biggest difference between the TAG Heuer Carrera Replica Watches and its standard production sibling is its dial. Bamford goes far beyond a simple color scheme, offering a rare removal of sub-dials and date windows, both of which require a lot of work to achieve, and provide a cleaner, more elemental layout in the image. The main dial surface is a rich deep matte hunter green, a color that has been a core part of the RUF brand since its inception.
The familiar striped baton phone and faceted applied hour markers from Quality TAG Heuer Replica remain here, but Bamford accentuates these standard elements with a striking saffron-yellow central chronograph second hand with black striped tips. The chronograph subdial hands at 3 and 9 o’clock also echo this vibrant yellow above the azure base and raised outer subdial ring.
The 6 o’clock position is where the model’s most notable changes are made, as the familiar running seconds subdial and date window have been removed to make way for the bold, streamlined RUF badge in the same bright orange-yellow hue. Inside this logo is a smaller Highsnobiety logo, while Tag Heuer Replica Watches China own signature occupies the space between the 6 and 7 o’clock scales. While these elements work together to form a solid, visually balanced sub-dial for a balanced feel in the image, these brand layers may not suit all tastes.
The TAG Heuer Carrera beats the in-house TAG Heuer 02 automatic chronograph movement. Appearing in TAG Heuer’s high-end chronograph collection, the Heuer 02 performs in line with its role as the company’s modern flagship powerplant. Equipped with a vertical clutch, column wheel and an 80-hour power reserve at a beat rate of 28,800 bph, the TAG Heuer Replica Heuer 02 is the best in the modern chronograph market.
In terms of finishing, the movement has a modern and refined image, with Côtes de Genève on its skeleton bridges, a skeleton balance bridge in anthracite grey tones, and a stylish rose gold skeleton rotor. The TAG Heuer Carrera 1:1 Replica Watches comes with a pair of straps, including a hunter green strap that matches the dial in richly textured Saffiano leather, and a box-stitched forest green fabric NATO strap.
