The first watch on this list is not just a stand-alone watch. The watch represents the famous luxury replica TAG Heuer Kirium line that is a great representation of 1990s design. I remember it all too well, and I have to be honest here; I am not a fan. The design of the cheap fake TAG Heuer Kirium line was created by famous designer Jorg Hysek. As most of you know, he designed watches for Breguet, Cartier, Ebel, Boucheron, Seiko, and his brand, Hysek. His most famous design is, without a doubt, the Vacheron Constantin 222 that has become an industry classic.
The Kirium line replaced UK 1:1 replica TAG Heuer’s 4000 series. The design principle was to create a watch that looked like it was carved from one block of steel. This principle of liquid metal resulted in a simpler and more naturally flowing design. It was also the last of a series of watches developed with AAA fake TAG Heuer’s “Six Features” philosophy in mind. These six features were: water-resistant to 200 meters, screw-in crown, double safety clasp, unidirectional bezel, sapphire crystal, and luminous markings. While this philosophy guaranteed a certain standard that made it a renowned luxury brand, it also made it hard to tell the different series apart. They all simply had the same features. Hysek stepped away from those designs and created his interpretation of this philosophy.
Minimalistic dial design
In 1997 perfect fake TAG Heuer introduced the Kirium collection with a mix of both quartz and mechanical watches. The collection featured models with different case sizes. Additionally, a quartz chronograph was also part of the introduction pieces. It’s my pick for this list for several reasons. It might have been more logical to pick the mechanical chronograph that was introduced in 1999. But this quartz chronograph played a big part in the collection. The first featured a specifically designed handset that would replace the initial Mercedes-style hands with which all the other Kirium high quality replica watches were introduced. On top of that, this is the Kirium dial design that I like the most.
The dial design is very clean and, in my opinion, better balances than the dial of the mechanical version. This Swiss made fake TAG Heuer had the date window at 4 o’clock instead of the mechanical version at 6 o’clock as part of the register that was also positioned there. Additionally, the mechanical version has the word “automatic” weirdly placed above the logo. No, the design of the quartz version beats the mechanical version by a mile. And this weirdly attractive blue color gives the watch plenty of extra pop. Inside the 37mm case, Swiss movement copy TAG Heuer used the ETA Cal. 251.26 quartz movement that would prove to be reliable and easy to service or replace. That is why you will find quite a few of the Kirium quartz chronographs around. Expect to pay between €750 and €1,000 for this icon of nineties design.
