This timepiece is a replication, but it diverges from the typical replicas we often encounter. It has been introduced to the market by a factory and features an authentic Swiss movement. Unlike the majority of replica watches available in the market, which are typically not originally equipped with Swiss movements, this specific replica Tag Heuer utilizes an original Swiss SW200 automatic movement. This is noteworthy in the watch market, as it eliminates the need for users to purchase a separate Swiss movement and install it themselves, resulting in significant cost savings.
Actually I introduced such type of watches in another post, they are all Tag Heuer watches with original movement, many readers are interested in buying one after seeing my article.
Several individuals refrain from labeling such timepieces as “replicas,” and some have gone so far as to inform their customers that these watches are originals. However, from my perspective, these watches fall into a distinct category of replica timepieces equipped with authentic Swiss movements and come with the original packaging. Despite the misleading claims, the pricing remains quite reasonable for this particular type of watch.
The Replica Tag Heuer Autavia collection comprises three models, all crafted from bronze material. Each model features a distinct dial color, with options including brown, red, and green. All three variations boast a striking aesthetic, but personally, I find the one with a brown dial and matching leather strap particularly appealing. The harmonious blend of the brown color complements the bronze tone of the watch exquisitely.
The watch has a 42mm case, and its bi-directional rotating bezel features a ceramic insert. On the right side, the crown is notably large, adorned with two concentric circles of flutes, enhancing ease of rotation and crown operation. Personally, I find the Heuer Autavia with a brown dial and matching brown leather strap particularly appealing; its stronger retro flavor adds to its overall attractiveness.
