Have you ever wondered what it would be like if a modern chronograph was equipped with old hands? No? Yes? TAG Heuer Carrera 1887 movement Time Machine Nendo Japan limited edition provides the answer to this fascinating question.
If you are like me, you have heard of TAG Heuer, but you don’t know Nendo until now. Don’t worry, because we’ll find out now that this Tokyo-based design company has been working on everything from shoe store design to graphics and advertising for the past 18 years, all the way up to a variety of products-which happens to include Watch. Therefore, Nendo collaborated with TAG Heuer to create a very cool TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887 time machine Nendo Japan Limited Edition, this is its latest adventure, which includes a set of extremely unusual red hands – with these The pointer is not connected but it is very reminiscent of Japanese anime cartoon characters viciously wielding an unnecessarily large and strange sword.
Nendo interprets its concept as “give people a small moment!”, which makes our days so interesting and so rich. This is why we want to reconstruct everyday life by collecting them and reshaping them into an easy-to-understand way. We hope that people who meet Nendo designs can intuitively feel these tiny “!” moments. “
Well, for fans of TAG Heuer Carrera, these bold, red hands are not just “small’!” moments, because the dial and the overall appearance of this classic Carrera have changed a lot. Frankly speaking, I had hoped to see some rare limited edition watches to commemorate some Japanese manga or anime shows, but it turns out that the concept behind the TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 1887 Time Machine Nendo Japan limited edition is very different. Nendo hopes to reinterpret Carrera’s design by “going to the local traditional watchmaker to repair the image of the chronograph, and it turns out that the elderly boss has worn a pair of clocks from an old timepiece. Mistake.”
The nickname of this version of Carrera is Time Machine, a bit like MB&F’s Legacy Machines (hands-on here), where a unique combination of modern and traditional design elements are combined-obviously, the execution of MB&F’s Legacy Machine dedicated series is Nendo’s method of course It is more thorough, but at the same time it will definitely bring a lot of fun, as well as the fascination and unexpected embodiment of modern iconic works.
Nendo has further expanded this retro theme by making the watch box look like an old book, leaving a smaller TAG Heuer TAG Heuer box inside the case, as well as a red bookmark and paper cutter, both A watch designed to closely replicate the design of the hands. Although we have seen the book box idea in many other places, adding some items that mimic the specific design elements of the table is a very good idea and is likely to be encountered frequently.
Last but not least, the watch is also equipped with a glass clock frame, which is individually handmade from antique jars. With this old book, red tools and a jar covering the cheap watch, you can indeed replicate the atmosphere of an old workshop and laboratory. However, all of these are associated with a more wear-resistant and more versatile modern chronograph watch of the 21st century . century.
The hour and minute hands of the TAG Heuer Carrera movement 1887 timepiece Nendo Japan Limited Edition remain unchanged, so the 43 mm wide stainless steel case, black ceramic bezel, black dial and stainless steel bracelet are all standard cases. From TAG Heuer (TAG Heuer). This means that you do indeed get the extraordinary fusion of TAG Heuer Carrera TAG Heuer Carrera DNA, and the unique twisting effect, thanks to the two hands, they seem to be an afterthought or a unique modification…
If you like their appearance, you may not want to think about it for too long, because this may become one of the cool and rare collectibles in the future, and you don’t even have to spend more money to buy one.
