The soft leather strap has some perforated elements for style, and comes with a matching deep gray deployant clasp. It makes for a very comfortable fit, and overall the finishing on the case sees a rare matte (versus polished and brushed) version of the Carrera. The case is further water resistant to 100 meters. One of the best details on the case is the crown, which has a ring of rubber around it to make it more grippy when you need to adjust or turn it. Over the last few years, Replica TAG Heuer Monaco has paid a lot of attention to its Carrera collection and honestly as a consumer it would be easy to be confused about which ones are the best to buy. For instance, if someone asked me whether to get a Carrera with a TAG Heuer Calibre 36, 1887, or 1969 I am not sure what I would answer. TAG's real way of differentiating the movements to all but the most dedicated movement aficionados is the design of the replica Tag Heuer Formula 1 watch they are placed inside of. Thus, the Calibre 36 has a slight unique dial, even though some other modern Carrera models have similar ones. The dial took a while to get used to. It is certainly attractive, and very instrumental in its feel, but it isn't what I would call classic. http://www.buyijoy.com/replica-tag-heuer-grand-carrera.html took a risk to go with something new�Cwhich is a decision I respect. This bi-compax style chronograph leaves out an entire subdial making the chronograph measure only up to 30 minutes (versus 12 hours). That was a design decision more than anything else. The Chronograph subdials are also a bit narrow spaced given the size of the dial, but I got used to it quickly. One thing I like a lot are the applied hour markers, that are actually represented as minute markers. Here TAG Heuer is paying homage to classic mechanical stopwatches. There is also an inner ring used as a scale for the hour hand, as well as some appreciated depth to the dial. The hour and minute hands are nicely shaped and easy to read. Those hands contain lume, but sadly the rest of the dial is devoid of any luminant (such as for the hour markers). The dial also contains the date located at 6 o'clock. Overall, the dial isn't for everyone, but is modern, certainly fresh, and represents a design that I think will quickly grow on you. Best of all, it is symmetrical. As I said before, deciding to get a Calibre 36 version of the Carrera has a lot to do with your understanding of the base El Primero movement, as well as your love of the design. The Racing version in titanium will be a bit less common than the steel ones for sure. While it is not without a few quirks, this is a very strong timepiece and shows how serious TAG Heuer is about appealing to the buyers of watches in the $5,000 plus segment.
