Gc Sport Class XL Watch
Here is a really nifty new Tag Heuer model I just came by. I haven't seen it anywhere else but at The Watch Gallery who always has the most recent Tag Heuer watches. In the not so distant past I praised the good looks of the new Tag Heuer Formula 1 Grande Date watch. It wasn't too tough to predict that a chronograph version was right around the corner, and here it is. But it seems to have dispensed with the "big date" part. The watch still shows the date though. Instead of the previous Swiss quartz movement, Tag Heuer has given the new Formula 1 Chronograph watches is newer Calibre S movement. The movement is a sophisticated quartz movement that transforms the watch dial totally into a chronograph. Operating it has the watch hands alter position to be used for counting the chronograph hours, seconds and minute. The two retrograde dials are used to measure 1/10 and 1/100 of a second times for the ultra precise chronograph mechanism. This is probably the best way to have such a precise chronograph complication without getting a digital watch. Once you are over with using the chronograph function, the watch reverts to "telling the time mode." In time telling mode the chronograph retrograde dials are used to indicate the date (cool right?)
The dial on the BR-03 92 Phantom is surprisingly easy to read. The painted hour markers are thick and wide, therefore raised over the dial. They consist of a healthy dose of black photo-luminescent paint, which makes the watch even easier to read when the lights are turned off. I have found in similar watches from other companies that the black markers take longer to "charge" then light colored ones. This means that if you do not hold the watch directly under a light source for five minutes it does not glow in the dark very well. The BR Phantom dials, on the other hand, have a strong, green glow even after regular wear during the day.
In addition to choosing the case material, there are a number of hand and dial options available. This means you can choose colors the style of indicators, etc... Of course you choose the proper alligator strap as well. Really a ton of options at your disposal from one of the hottest independent watch makers today. The whole watch is hand made by Pita in Spain (Barcelona).
