I find the Tag Heuer WAV5152.FC6231 Grand Carrera fair-priced, debonair, and quite lovely! If you are purchasing for a friend or loved one, keep in mind that the luminescent rose gold and silver dial-face palette may call best to a man who is unapologetic and firmly confident in his masculinity or uninhibitedly in touch with his feminine side. Retailing at $7,300, you can easily find this beauty online for nearly half the retail price. This Tag Heuer Grand Carrera demonstrates the undeniably distinctive, Tag Heuer aesthetic and an air of quality and class that is highly competitive with its price-wise, high-end comparables. If you or your loved one is looking to purchase a watch in the four figure range while retaining brand name bragging rights and promoting an image of class and high-end style, this Tag Heuer WAV5152.FC6231 Grand Carrera Men’s watch is a great fit for you!

As with a watch from most high-end vendors, the three year warranty is a reliable one. Thus, parts replacement and repairs should be seamless and easy. Hopefully, in light of the high quality Swiss quartz movement, solid rose gold & steel case, robust crocodile-leather band, and well crafted inner workings, you will not trouble yourself with thoughts of repair and replacement any time soon. A distinctively savvy quality of newer Tag Heuers is the magnetic-field-driven oscillation of the balance wheel underlying the self-winding automatic chronometer movement. Aesthetically, the brown leather strap with its hint of crocodile cooperates with the luminescent dial-face to add a bit of depth to the stylistic expression for a more balanced masculine tenor. If you are not a fan of the rose gold accent, take a look at the comparable TAG Heuer Men’s WAV5112.FC6231 Grand Carrera Grand Date GMT Watch which you can find online for only $2,500 – $3,000. Also to note: If you or your giftee is a recreational diver, this watch offers stability up to 330 feet under the sea.

In light of available online discounts, aesthetic appeal, and high quality offered by the Tag Heuer WAV5152.FC6231 Grand Carrera, this men’s watch is certainly worth your time. As with any four-figure, high-end purchase, I recommend a healthy dose of competitive research to ensure the best price and a long-term fashion statement that truly suits you. However, if you ultimately decide that this time-teller is the one for you, I support your purchase as a smart, stylish, and classy choice at a sensible price.
