I have found watches equipped with a GMT function most useful. However, some GMT watches include complications I do not necessarily require.TAG Heuer Carrera Twin Time Automatic delivers a GMT function in a simple to interpret composition.Related replica TAG Heuer Carrera Twin Time Automatic.
TAG Heuer Carrera Twin Time Automatic have a choice of dial variants, as well the option of a strap or bracelet. This watch with its steel bracelet and anthracite dial. Whilst the black dial option delivers greater contrast and legibility, I find the anthracite variant to be particularly appealing with a “sunray effect” to its surface. The rays adorning the dial surface seem to entice the eyes to focus on the centre of the dial surface. The hour and minutes hands are faceted and lined with luminescent material. The styling of the hands is restrained, avoiding excessive ebullience which could potentially prove distracting.
At 3 o’clock the date is indicated in black text on a white disc, delightfully framed with a hand applied border in a silvery polished hue. The inclusion of this window frame communicates the date with careful diction that is again simple to interpret.Arguably the most flamboyant element of the dial design is the GMT hand. It is slim, polished and has a smattering of red detail judiciously applied to its tip.The chapter ring interfaces well with the central sweep seconds hand and a 24-hour scale is presented on the inner flange.
The 41 mm steel case looks resplendent in its fully polished finish.The folding clasp, with its push pieces, granted a secure and comfortable fit. The bracelet cleverly blends satin brushed and highly polished surfaces to harmonious effect.
This TAG Heuer Carrera Twin Time Automatic is fitted with an exhibition caseback allowing sight of the Calibre 7 self-winding movement within.The Calibre 7 has a power reserve of at least 42 hours.
