Design’s Perspective


Side Angle. For men’s average wrist, this watch is considerably a mid-to-large size with its 39mm round case. The case is solid and sturdy, made of premium grade stainless steel which finely finished in high polish, and it is slim enough for an automatic with approximately 12mm thickness --making it fits easily with any kind of shirt’s cuffs. Both of the sapphire glasses that shield its front and rear sides offer an appreciable clarity whether when you’re reading the dial or simply enjoying the beauty of its Calibre 7’s mechanical movement, speaking of which, the one at the front is further enhanced with anti-reflective sapphire on both sides. In addition, at the right hand side of the case, there is a pull-and-push crown with the brand’s hallmarking that is fluted to makes it easier to use.

Dial: Zoom. Upfront, the watch’s Black dial is fashioned in such manner to that is simple and easy in the eyes with a well balanced layout, and designed to delivers a good legibility regardless day or night. On this sharp looking dial, there are steely hour and minute hands with SuperLuminova, a slim central sweep seconds, and a GMT hands with Red outlined arrow head that features fluorescent materials. The dial also comprises luminous applied sticks hour markers, a date aperture at the 3 o’clock position, painted white reference markers around the periphery, and alternating dots and Arabic numeral 24-hour markers on the flange for the second time zone.

Rear View. Off course, you’ll sure to appreciate the one that is "responsible" to ensure that the watch would remains soundly on your wrist, which is also one that gives it another dash of elegance. Needless to say, it is that three-rows "two-tone" link bracelet. Made of the same quality material as the case that is finished with fine brushed and high polish combination, this 22mm wide adjustable bracelet has a length that can can accommodates a maximum wrist circumference of up to 8 inches, and it equipped with a deployment hidden folding clasp with push button safety for convenient fitting.

The GMT Automatic Movement


As we have already mentioned once before, this watch is fitted with TAG Heuer Calibre 7. It is an accurate and fairly rugged caliber. Thanks to that, as a mechanical timepiece, in terms of precise timekeeping, this TAG Heuer WV2115.BA0787 manage to well enough hold its own with its competitors.

TAG Heuer Calibre 7TAG Heuer Calibre 7 is a Swiss made, and this GMT automatic movement beats at a high frequency of 28.800 alterations per hour. Looking at the fact that only this brand use it, this 11½ lignes caliber is an in-house, but, we can’t really say it for sure that it is actually TAG’s manufacture movement. Well, it doesn’t that much matter anyway. Regarding its specs, TAG is a tad bit stingy by not revealing the exact number of its jewels by saying that there are "21 up to 25 jewels, depending on the execution", and so does the power reserve, which is said between 42 to 46 hours. Being cautious, we’d prefer to assume the worst, 21 jewels with 42 hours of power reserve that is.

The movement is not a Chronometer grade, or to be exact --as there is still some possibility for being one, it has no official certification from the COSC as a Chronometer. And, speaking of the performance, you can at least expect that its accuracy is on par or better than an elaborate grade, with an average rate of ±7 secs/day at worst.

Thoughts and Pricing


Based on its pricing, you could say that this gent’s 39mm steel on steel Black dial "three hands, gmt, and date" automatic timepiece is an entry level luxury, one with a good balance of price-quality ratio. The watch is stylish and versatile as an accessory. A fairly thin 39mm watch works well with any men’s wrist, and being not too large, it would also looks good as well for women who are into a masculine flavored oversized wrist accessory. Furthermore, it performs beautifully as a timekeeper with a reliable in-house movement to back it up, and there is no issue regarding its read-ability at all. Not to mention the 30/50m water resistant, and the sapphire on its both sides, too.

TAG Heuer Carrera Twin Time WV2115.BA0787 is offered at an original manufacturer suggested retail price of $3,200.00, which is reasonable enough considering all of its quality offerings. Of course, being not a new release, you could expect to get it for less than its MSRP, say, maybe around 2 up to 2.5K.
