Any watch brand wants to have a real “signature” chronograph in their lineup, but TAG Heuer replica watch can be said to have a pair, with the famous square Monaco. When Heuer launched Monaco in 1969, it was the first square and waterproof Swiss made automatic chronograph. Now, they have revealed the Special Edition of TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Special Edition, which specifically reviews Steve McQueen’s role in making Monaco famous.
TAG Heuer Monaco rose to fame after appearing on Steve McQueen’s wrist in the 1971 film le mans. In the same movie, the role of McQueen is sponsored by gulf oil company, and you’ll find his white uniform with blue and orange stripes, just like the famous picture above. So fake TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Special Edition watch is inspired not only by the original TAG Heuer Monaco, but also by Steve McQueen and his character in le mans. TAG Heuer said it was also a tribute to the 50th anniversary of the gulf race and its role in motor racing.
In essence, TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Special Edition retains its original features. For example, the crown is still on the left side of the case, with a sapphire crystal that is round in height, with a blue dial and a sunny surface. It adopts TAG Heuer Calibre 11, which is very similar to the original model of Monaco and adopts modern production methods and tolerances. Calibre 11 offers 40 hours of power reserve and beats at 4Hz. This is a time-tested and reliable machine core, very similar to Calibre 1861. It has an indelible connection with TAG Heuer Monaco replica watches.
The steel case has a diameter of 39mm, but the square means it is much bigger than you think. Both the table and the case have alternating grinding and polishing surfaces to provide some visual interest. Unlike the original Monaco, the bay special salesman is a square, which I think is more in line with the aesthetics of the watch. As mentioned above, the watch has a high arched and sloping sapphire crystal. This was one of the first signs of Monaco in 1969, and one of the features that helped it waterproof. When it comes to waterproof performance, best TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Special Edition replica watch has a rating of 100 meters, even if it’s the bottom of the screen.
Although the core and case are similar to the special version of Monaco we have seen before, the dial is the highlight of the model. The bottom of the dial is the original dark blue, with the original Popular TAG Heuer replica watch Monaco’s sun pen. The bay fringe is then applied to the right half of the dial. Given how gulf stripe used in automobiles and uniform, decided to stripe off center is reasonable, but I doubt that it may prove to be a love-hate design elements, need to be symmetrical collector.
