TAG Heuer is celebrating Jack Heuer’s 88th birthday with a limited edition Carrera – I think it’s TAG Heuer’s last LE of the season… TAG Heuer’s long-running and globally popular diver’s watch collection has just been awarded the ” Bamford treatment”, so this limited edition of 1,500 TAG Heuer Aquaracer x Bamford Titanium watch replica WAY208F.BF0638 is undoubtedly the most chic of all.
The Case & Dial
The case itself is 43mm in diameter, but thanks to shortened lugs it should wear reasonably well for its size. This new TAG Heuer Aquaracer Bamford LE replica have a Tropical Coffee Dial with orange accents, a concentric patterned black dial, and a case made from grade 2 titanium. The grade 2 titanium means it will be hypoallergenic and corrosion resistant.
The dial features concentric circles emanating from the center that are recessed into the dial. Printed crosshairs split the dial into quadrants, with a date aperture at 3 o’clock, and branding at 12 and 6 o’clock. The hour makers are simple blocks of lume, doing away with the highly polished and beveled markers seen on other replica TAG Heuer Aquaracer models. Minutes and seconds are marked in hashes between the hours, and at their outset are a track of orange markers laid out perpendicular to the hour markers. The markers run the width of every other second, and while they add a visual flair to the dial, I can’t imagine they serve any practical function. The tip of the seconds hand also features alternating white and orange sections, while the hour and minute hand are outlined in orange. The end result is a highly legible dial that reads straightforward, even with the embellishments.
Inside the TAG Heuer Aquaracer replica WAY208F.BF0638 is the TAG Heuer Caliber 5 automatic movement. This is a base Swiss Made Sellita SW200 or ETA 2824 mechanism. The Caliber 5 operates at 4Hz with about two days of power reserve. On the rear of the titanium case is a diving helmet motif. I’ve always found this amusing because the Aquaracer has always been associated with “fast” activities such as boating, surfing, and swimming. I’ve don’t think there are too many instances of people wearing diving helms doing anything fast — outside of sinking to the floor.
The TAG Heuer Aquaracer Bamford replica features a titanium case and bracelet that’s been sandblasted to a uniform texture throughout. The metal takes on a warm tone that plays well with the angular case of the Aquaracer. The deployant has a stamped metal diver’s extension. Eventually, I’m sure the Aquaracer will get an updated deployant with a micro-adjust system. I also think that this watch would look really sharp on a dark gray NATO-style strap.
