Today I'm going to be reviewing the TAG Heuer Carrera, also known as the Skeleton. Reference number: C-A-R-two-A-one-W.B-A-zero-seven-zero-three. I'm gonna talk to you guys about the case, the bezel, the dial, the bracelet. Okay, let's dive right in. Let's start with a case. Now the case is 43 millimeters. That's from my thumb to my index finger. Did I forget to mention this is a TAG Heuer Skeleton? It's currently retailing for around $5,600, at least as of 2020, and you can get it for way less at JazzTime.com. Okay, now I also see this reference number M-S-P-three-zero-zero-two-three. I'm not really sure what that is actually, but okay, anyways, this is a TAG Heuer Carrera Skeleton and we're gonna talk about the case. The case, as I said is 43 millimeters and it's using both brushed and polished case. Now take a look. If you look closely, this part right here is all brushed as well as the lugs right there. And as I turn the watch, let's see what part is actually high polished. As I'm turning it, I really actually don't see any high polished. So well you know what, I take that back. There's a high polished right there. And you know what? That kind of makes it streamlined with the bracelet. Because if you look at the bracelet carefully, you'll notice that it's brushed right where my thumb is pointing. And then these alternating links are high polish, which kind of keeps the continuity going. Very nice touch by TAG, actually. Okay, now the bezel, since we're talking about the case and the bezels right here, it's fixed, you can't move it. It's a fixed bezel. And you guys might be wondering, well what kind of bezel is it? Well, it's a PVD. You might think it's ceramic. And it looks like ceramic actually, but it's actually PVD. Now I'll want to bring your attention to some of the parts of this bezel. Now, if you look carefully, you'll notice that it looks like a high polish. You see it kind of, it reflects right there. Well, that's because it's PVD. And PVD is basically stainless steel that has been treated, so that it's black. And so that it doesn't fade or it doesn't scratch. That's another cool thing. And if you look at these indentations, they're actually indentations as opposed to applied markers, or applied paint, which is also quite a nice touch. Okay, now let's talk about the band here. The band, as I said before, is stainless steel. But if you look at it carefully, it's actually alternating between high polish, you see these things right here? One, two, three, four, five, six, seven. Okay, those parts are actually high polished. Whereas, the rest of the bracelet is brushed polished. And is actually a very high quality bracelet. I mean, I'm holding it here in my hand. One of the things though, yeah, you use the pushpins to change the bracelet. Yeah, very nice bracelet actually. Okay, now let's talk about the dial. The dial is probably the coolest part, as you can see, it's totally skeletonized and it's black. Now I'm looking at the TAG Heuer website and this watch is actually sold out. They don't even sell it on their website. And I'm not sure how hard it is to find cause I've only searched for it a few times, but we have it at JazzTime.com and we're actually selling it for under retail. So at least as of 2020's, but don't quote me as of later. But yeah, I think this is very cool. If you look at the dial, I mean, you can kind of just look at it for days. It's skeletonized and it has like very three-D looking features to it. It has a date wheel that goes around. You can even see the date wheel. It's just an amazing, crazy, awesome dial. Okay, let's see. The movement is a Caliber Heuer Zero One Automatic. Okay, so I guess that brings us to the end of this one. I need to try it on and give you my thoughts. Now for, oh yeah, by the way, I didn't tell you guys, it's quite thick. I don't know exactly how many millimeters, but I would probably guess probably around 14 or so. It's like the size of a deep seat, but it's got to kind of has to be thick in order to have all the functions or show all the skeletonized parts. So my thoughts are, you know, for the price point of this watch to have a skeletonized watch, it's really unbeatable. I mean, what other manufacturer is making skeletonized watches at this 5,000 or less price point? And we're selling that at JazzTime for much less than that. So, I mean, yeah, it's a pretty good deal. Tag Heuer makes in general very good watches. Their watches don't really have very many issues and they look great. So for what it is, I think it's a great watch.
