At first glance, the Montreal Edition has a completely different personality compared to the Silver Edition that preceded it, despite both being essentially the samereplica watch. While the latter is more restrained and somber with its monochromatic colours, the latest edition is fun and casual thanks to the colours taken from the white-dial Heuer Montreal.
TAG Heuer Replica did a good job of translating the key elements of the Montreal into the Carrera, such as the yellow accents on the minute counter and the alternating blue and red seconds scale. The colours are employed harmoniously and complement each other. But despite the bright colours, the dial remains balanced, uncluttered, and devoid of superfluous lettering on the dial.
The case is the same as the one found on the Silver Edition. It’s a modern take on the vintage Tag Heuer Carrera Replicawith its distinctive bevelled lugs and fixed bezel design, but enlarged to 39 mm and 14.5 mm high, with some of the height accounted for by the domed, “box type” crystal. Having owned a watch with the same case, I can say the watch is quite compact on the wrist, and wears comfortably thanks to the lugs.
Visible through the case back is the in-house Heuer 02, the brand’s upper-end chronograph movement.
Relatively thin for a Fake Tag Heuermovement at 6.95 mm, and boasts features like a vertical clutch and column wheel. The power reserve is a useful 80 hours, almost double of the industry norm.
Everyone knows that sports replica watches are supposed to be made from steel. It’s not just a question of aesthetics, but also practicality- stainless steel is harder than most precious metals, meaning that your steel sports watch is less likely to be nicked and damaged than its gold equivalent.
Perhaps the sportiest of Replica TAG Heuer’s classic chronographs, the Monaco case is already prominent thanks to its large square form, and making that square case from gold makes the watch even more conspicuous.
The Fake 18K Gold Monaco used the same basic design as the standard steel Monaco of the day, reference CW2111, but with a few key differences in detailing to set the flagship Monaco apart from its steel brethren.
The case is the same basic 38mm design as the original Monaco re-edition from 1997, which was designed by Miodrag Mijatovic, known universally as Mijat.
The dial is quite different to that offered on the steel Monaco of the day, and is a wonderful star-burst silver colour. The hands and applied hour-markers are Gold, giving the watch a luxurious rather than sporty look. And speaking of those hour markers, they are significantly longer than those used on the steel Monaco.
It’s business as usual at the rear of the watch, with a solid Gold caseback, engraved with the Tag Heuer Replica watch’s reference number and Chronometer number. As was the case with the sapphire crystal, clear casebacks were another seven years away, meaning all Monaco models made do with a solid back.
The Monaco feels very special on the wrist, and not surprisingly has an added heft over stainless steel.The watch came standard on a high-quality crocodile strap.
Street artist Alec Monopoly, the scarf-wearing, paint-can-wielding “Art Provocateur” whose takes both his pseudonym and his stylistic hallmark from the top-hatted tycoon character from the famous board game, has been working with TAG Heuer Replica since 2016, applying his graffiti paints to the straps of special-edition watches and even designing a custom digital face for the Fake TAG Heuer Connected Watch.
The first timepiece with a physical dial designed by Monopoly debuted in 2017 — the TAG Heuer Formula One Replica, which brings a miniature representation of one of Monopoly’s highly collectible canvases to the Swiss brand’s most accessible timepiece.
Housed in a 41-mm brushed steel case with a polished black rotating bezel with 60-second scale, the Cheap Replica Watch sports a dial from which Mr. Monopoly, a top hat on his head and a scarf over the lower part of his face, peeks out from the dial’s center, surrounded by colorful graffiti.
The artist’s “ALEC” logo is engraved on the solid caseback, under which beats a Swiss quartz movement.
