The CAU1114.FT6024 is a sporty chronograph watch for men.
It was released back in 2016 and is still a popular choice for both the young and old. The analog watch looks very daring courtesy of the all-black finish.
This applies to the case, bezel, dial, band/ strap as well as back case. The tailpiece appears to try to merge functionality and elegance.
In this TAG Heuer CAU1114.FT6024 review, we will briefly look at the things that make it tick.
- Quartz movement
- Black dial
- Black rubber strap
Daring Black Stainless Steel Case
Looking at the watch, you cannot fail to see the bold appeal.
The entire case is matte black just like the bezel and the straps. It has no glitter or shiny accents.
The black-on-black appeal not only looks unique but also classy. It exhibits a utilitarian aspect that seems to mean business.
The case is 41mm in diameter and about 12mm in thickness.
We can say it’s a midsize watch and should be all right for men. Its falsity light compared to similar watches.
The reason being that the straps are made of rubber instead of the heavier stainless steel.
According to the manufacturer, the overall weight is about 15.84 ounces.
Accurate Swiss Analog Quartz Movement
As you see, the watch comes in analog and looks traditional.
The movement receives praise for being accurate and seems to remain within the correct parameters.
It doesn’t lose more than 2 seconds in a day, which is pretty okay.
The hands move effortlessly and you can hardly hear any ticking.
The movement is powered by a lithium battery that will last for 2 years or more easily. Changing or replacing the battery is done by unscrewing the black back case.
When it comes to resistance to magnetism, this watch does perform better than most others do choices.
Nevertheless, you should try to avoid placing it in a strong magnetic field.
Plain Black Dial
I must say that TAG Heuer took a big gamble going full black.
The entire dial is black, the hands, as well as the hour markers, are black.
This creates a one of its kind appeal, which does portray a bold look. You also find the TAG Heuer logo just below the 12oclock point.
However, unlike in most other watches where it has different colors, in this one, it comes in simple black with fine white borderlines.
All the hour markers apart from the 12 O’clock, which is in Arabic numeral, come in stick form.
You will find three chronograph sub-dials next to 3, 9, and 6 o’clock point. They show 30 minute, 60 second, and 1/10th of a second.
The date/ day display is positioned near the 4 o’clock marker.
Clear Scratch-Resistant Sapphire Crystal
With this timepiece, you won’t worry so much about it getting scratched.
It comes with a tough sapphire crystal, which has good resistance against scratches, chipping, and discoloration.
It’s very clear during the day and is also less affected by glare or too much bright light.
The credit goes to the anti-reflective coating.
To help protect the hands, dial, and the quartz movement, you also find a solid case back.
I can’t also fail to mention the sturdy black rubber straps and the good water resistance of 200meteres/ 660 feet.
There is no denying that this watch has a unique and bold appearance.
It is a sturdy piece made from stainless steel and a tough scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. It is accurate and the visibility is good.
Anyone searching for a reliable, well-made and accurate watch will find this piece quite the catch.
