This year for Baselworld, TAG Heuer replaces one of its staunch models – the TAG Heuer Twin Time, which was released about 10 years ago, with the TAG Heuer Calibre 7 Twin Time. This model comes out of the Carrera series, and is yet another watch from that collection to go out without a chronograph. The name Twin Time has a long heritage going all the way back to the 50’s. Those watches were designed by Jack Heuer himself and were so successful that TAG decided to re-launch it.
At a glance, the 2004 Twin Time versus the 2014 Twin Time it is difficult to see where the change is apart from a sharper dial and a larger case size. The new Calibre 7 Twin Time is just 2mm larger than its predecessor at 41mm. Upon closer inspection, it is clear that the 2014 Twin Time uses much of the form of the Carrera series as a whole, with its double tiered bezels and alternate brushed and polished finishes.
The dial also has a couple of upgrades like a metal window around the dial, the addition of the word ‘Calibre 7’, and the TAG Heuer logo applied on the dial. The GMT hand changes from a blue point to a red one. The minute and hour hands carry some lume for readability at night. The hour markers are all rendered in index format which does give the new piece a dressy appeal. Though the changes are subtle, the TAG Heuer Calibre 7 Twin Time still presents a very attractive option if you’re not in the market for a chronograph.
The TAG Heuer Calibre 7 Twin Time comes in three dial options: black, white, and anthracite. The watch is also offered on a steel bracelet as well. Price is going to start around 3,000 CHF when these beauties hit the shelves.
