Show Charm In Sports Three Style Sports Watch Recommendations

With the recent warming of the weather, I believe everyone is thinking about sports watches. A high-quality sports watch will definitely make you energetic. But when it comes to sports watches, chronographs are indispensable. Because of the sporty temperament of the chronograph from the inside to the outside, most boys will like it very much. Today I recommend three high-end sports chronographs for everyone.
Tag Heuer Carrera CAS2111.FC6292 watch

TAG Heuer watches like to challenge new attempts. In the design concept of TAG Heuer watches, new experiences are always first. Carrera heritage The Calibre 16 chronograph perfectly inherits the Carella series first introduced in 1964 and further perfects it. The embossed chronograph dial at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock is decorated with delicate spiral carvings, in addition to a stainless steel bracelet; blue, black and brown alligator straps are available. This watch uses the classic chronograph movement ETA 7750 with a power reserve of 42 hours.
For reference of watch details: Most of IWC watches have simple design, but there is no shortage of boldness and uninhibited on sports chronographs. This marine watch’s rotating bezel marks the start of the dive; it also brings a striking new look to the stainless steel marine chronograph. The first quarter of the bezel and the minute hand are luminous marine colors, making the watch unique: coral red with dark blue dial or signal yellow with black dial. Yellow is filtered out only in extremely deep water, so it can be seen for quite a long time. The diver’s watch is water-resistant up to 12 bar. Thanks to the luminous Super-LumiNova coating, the watch is more legible and its perimeter has been increased. The small dials of the hour and minute chronograph circles are lighter in color, making it easier to read the chronograph time underwater. Both watches are equipped with a stainless steel bracelet and a blue or black rubber strap.
