MG: The trouble with this perfect fake TAG Heuer is that it feels kind of lost in this category, but I also do not have a clear idea where it would be better suited. It is not a jewelry watch per se, although it has lab-grown diamonds inserted into the case. I would say that it is more a proposition of the future, a delightful dash of innovation, that burst into the GPHG, which is also one of the traditions of the competition. It is not without controversy as some fiercely oppose lab-grown diamonds. I have a different opinion as I am only opposed to them when they are fraudulently sold as natural diamonds.
Swiss replica TAG Heuer UK didn’t do that, so this watch represents an interesting new direction in watchmaking to me. Now all we need to do is find the right category for it.
ED: It is very unorthodox to put a progressive-technology super clone watch like this in this category. I hope it gets moved to the discretionary Innovation category by the jury as I don’t feel it really belongs here.
IS: Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is generally used to either make thin films of material for semiconductors or add a protective coating to a metal surface (Urwerk is known for coating some of its cases with a black CVD coating). So I tip my hat to luxury replica TAG Heuer for developing a method it calls “Diamant d’Avant-Garde” to grow thin synthetic diamonds using CVD. But I have four issues with the aaa quality fake TAG Heuer Carrera Plasma Diamant d’Avant-Garde as a jewelry watch: at 45 mm, it’s just too big for this category; a chronograph and a tourbillon add nothing to the gems and gem-setting; I see absolutely zero evidence of ” . . . exceptional mastery of the art of jewelry and gem setting” and don’t understand how this Swiss made replica watch even qualified in this category, and the design is more that of a masculine sports watch than a stunning feminine accessory for a big night out.
JM: The cheap fake TAG Heuer Carrera Plasma Diamant d’Avant-Garde is not a jewelry watch that I think will win, but there is no doubt in my mind that it is the most innovative jewelry watch I have seen in years, quite possibly ever. The case is made from anodized aluminum and is set with incredible (and theoretically flawless) lab-grown diamonds that are set perfectly flush into the surface and, even more importantly, following the exact shape of the case.
On top of that, they are not perfectly symmetrical, even, or consistent in size or shape. This setting is fundamentally wild considering the material and the shapes of the stones. The dial is something unique as well, polycrystalline diamond, which is an expanse of diamond crystals that form a single crystalline structure of hyperfaceted raw crystals.
The result is a sparkling stunner and highlights another way that we can experience diamonds in a TAG Heuer replica for sale. Using lab-grown diamonds also sends a message that you can have incredibly high-quality diamonds without any chance of human rights violations, and it doesn’t take a team of certifiers to ensure the gemstones are ethical. Dumping carbon into a piece of scientific equipment and getting out diamonds will never directly exploit anyone, and I would love for all jewels to eventually be lab grown so we can leave the land where it is and stop digging in the dirt for something we can make from scratch.
ED: Hear, hear, Joshua! SO RIGHT!
JM: But even with all that, I don’t know if this high end copy TAG Heuer will win over enough minds without more visually intoxicating implementations of the techniques and technology. It is a great watch to showcase what can be done, but it isn’t a spectacular example of a jewelry timepiece.
GG: The Swiss movement replica TAG Heuer Carrera Plasma Diamant d’Avant-Garde is “avant-garde” in its use of a matrix of lab-grown diamonds on its dial, but I suppose I’m too old-school to warm to the idea of lab-grown gems competing against the natural ones adorning the other watches. And visually this piece can’t stand up to the others in any case.
