New Release: TAG Heuer Carrera Date 36mm Plasma Diamant d’Avant-Garde Watch

Following the unveiling of its innovative lab-grown diamond technology in 2022, replica TAG Heuer is adding another Plasma Diamant d’Avant-Garde model to its catalog as part of its novelties for LVMH Watch Week 2024. This replica TAG Heuer Carrera Date 36mm Plasma Diamant d’Avant-Garde watch with yellow diamonds follows last year’s pink diamond variant and marks the second colored diamond created by the watchmaker.

This is not just your run-of-the-mill gem-set watch; replica TAG Heuer’s use of diamonds within its Plasma Diamant d’Avant-Garde line is purposefully inventive — avant-garde, if you will. For instance, the winding crown, attached to a 36mm white gold case, is masterfully cut from a single, 1.3-carat, yellow lab-grown diamond. Furthermore, the dial, which 1:1 super replica TAG Heuer calls a poly-crystalline dial, was created by growing a large number of diamond crystals as one piece, resulting in a myriad of reflections and light effects. There’s also another large lab-grown yellow diamond on the dial, set into the company’s shield logo, placed under the Carrera inscription. The diamond dazzle doesn’t stop there; 12 baguette-cut lab-grown diamonds serve as hour markers, with a pair at 12 o’clock and none at 6 to allow room for the date window that sits there instead. To avoid obstructing the shimmery background, the hour and minute hands at the center of the dial are skeletonized, accompanied by a slender seconds hand.

Responsible for all of the diamonds on the watch (4.8-carat total weight) is replica TAG Heuer’s Plasma technology, which allows the company to lab-grow diamonds as needed and into the size shapes it requires. According to the brand, diamond “seeds” are first placed in a vacuum chamber then plasma from specific gases is ignited to grow the crystals. Once the diamond grows to the desired size and shape, it’s cut by lasers and polished. Along with creating classic white diamonds (which come out of the lab flawless and colorless), replica TAG Heuer can also employ the process to make perfectly uniform colored diamonds (as seen with these yellow diamonds) by introducing certain trace elements during the growth process to achieve specific colors.

Whether or not your taste in replica watches involves precious gems, the creativity and unique application of diamond components on the replica TAG Heuer Carrera Date 36mm Plasma Diamant d’Avant-Garde is admirable. If I ever get the chance, I would love to see this in the metal, specifically to witness the yellow diamond winding crown in action. Yellow is far from the last lab-grown colored diamond we’ll see from replica TAG Heuer; it has promised that there will be more in the future. Though the brand has declined to make a public retail price available for the yellow diamond Carrera Date 36mm Plasma Diamant d’Avant-Garde, the previous pink version retailed for CHF 90,000 (a little over 100,000 USD) in 2023. These are not strictly limited-edition models, but production will no doubt be low. For more information, please visit the brand’s website.
