The regular-production Monaco in blue – arguably the quintessential Monaco Replica design – received a substantial upgrade, with the ETA movement replaced with the in-house cal. Heuer 02. The Monaco Calibre Heuer 02 is now also available with a black dial.
The new bracelet is modelled on the 1970s original, but has been made more robust while being finished better.
While the Tag Heuer Monaco Heuer 02 Replicahas a new movement and bracelet, it retains the well finished case that’s a wearable 39 mm, along with the symmetrical, “Compax” dial layout.
Despite the retro style, the bracelet is still reassuringly modern and solid in construction, unlike the slightly dinky vintage original. While the Tag Heuer Replica vintage bracelet was made up of folded steel links, each link of the new bracelet is solid.
While the core three models of the new collection render this new case form in a blend of polished and sporty brushed stainless steel, the green dial variant sets itself apart with a matte bead blasted finish in dark Grade 2 titanium.
Like the cases, the dials of the new TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 line maintain recognizable Aquaracer cues while evolving the overall design significantly. The sunburst dials in black, blue, green, and bright silver keep the Aquaracer’s trademark horizontal engraved lines, but here the ridged sections are wider and less numerous for a cleaner feel.
All models in the Fake TAG Heuer Aquaracer line are powered by the ETA based Calibre 5 automatic movement. While a reliable and easily maintained powerplant, this movement may become something of an Achilles heel for the line as most of its competitors currently sport in-house designs.
TAG Heuer pairs the watch with a modern curved end take on a vintage big hole rubber tropic strap, cleverly integrating the look into the overall design with octagonal holes in place of the original round style.
The 44mm stainless steel case has shorter lugs for greater comfort, alternating polished and fine-brushed finishes to make the watch look smooth and thin.
The new Fake TAG Heuer Carrera offers a dark blue and matching ceramic bezel, a matte olive green and silver steel bezel, or two black versions and a sleek black ceramic bezel. The dial of each model has a round brushed surface.
Three small dials and a date window at 6 o’clock provide you with all basic measurements while achieving visual balance. The new “H-shaped” bracelet is also thinner than the original racing watch, so it is lighter and more ergonomic.
The best of these sporty models is easily the black and rose gold Carrera. This case has a black ceramic bezel with rose gold paint, while the crown and buttons are made of solid 18K rose gold. The Best AAA Tag Heuer Replica Watch movement is visible through the sapphire crystal caseback, black PVD-coated brass and rose gold printing. This watch uses a classic black leather strap to wrap the wrist.
