I am in my new era of (mildly) appreciating motorsport because if you write about watches for a living, chances are you will have to engage in car talk at some point. I know my strengths, and feigning interest in anything is not one of them. So please believe me when I say that watching Formula One in Monaco wearing a perfect fake TAG Heuer Monaco was maybe the most fun I’ve had for the better part of the last decade.
Swiss made replica TAG Heuer CA has been the Official Watch Partner of the Monaco Grand Prix since 2011, and a partner of the Oracle Red Bull Racing Formula 1 Team since 2016. 1:1 copy TAG Heuer (read: vintage Heuer) are obviously the motorsport-watch-crossover enthusiasts’ brand of reference.
The aaa quality fake TAG Heuer Monaco watch has been a staple in the “watches that are iconic as decided by watch guys pantheon” since its inception – actually probably more like since it was worn by Steve McQueen in Le Mans. Then again, even I am obsessed with Steve McQueen in Le Mans.
The TAG Heuer Monaco replica for sale isn’t exactly an easy watch to pull off. It’s square, it’s large and maybe a little on the loud side (this is not a diss, bold design is what keeps aesthetic evolution from dying) and now, in this new open work dial configuration, it’s even more of a statement than it’s slightly more legible predecessors.
Technically this isn’t the first time high quality fake TAG Heuer has made a skeletonized Monaco. In 2021, for Only Watch, the brand made the first ever open-dial in the history of the watch. But this is the first openwork dial made for public consumption.
My skeleton chronograph of choice was the black sandblasted dial with black DLC sandblasted titanium and turquoise accents. I’m not going to pretend this is the kind of watch I would normally go for. I’ll keep it real; a black openwork square seems like the furthest thing from any watch on my radar, but then again, I have an affinity for unusual design and Richard Mille so I owe it to myself and to the watch to lean in and enjoy.
The Swiss movement replica TAG Heuer‘s 39mm case is a true black, or what Maybelline would call its darkest shade of mascara, “Blackest Black.” The hands, indeces and date window are treated with Super-LumiNova, which looks especially cool on the black and turquoise colorway and amps up that futuristic feel that TAG is clearly going for with the skeletonization. There is a lot happening on the dial of this top super clone watch, but the contrast of the colored subdials and hands make it all weirdly legible; a modern Monaco with its DLC black-coated crown and pushers on the right, the casing feels very sleek and compact. I think of it as a zen sort of border for the chaos happening inside.
The TAG Heuer fake online CA also features an open caseback that displays the movement with a rotor that resembles an alloy racing wheel. Extra points for the rubber and leather hybrid strap which feels like a necessary update to the traditional leather.
The new TAG Heuer Monaco replica for men comes equipped with Caliber HEUER 02 Automatic – visible through the caseback – which means a healthy 80 hours of power reserve and 100 meters of water-resistance. It will set you back $11,250.
