Hands on: The TAG Heuer Monaco 1969-1979 Limited-Edition Watch Replica

At the 77th Monaco Grand Prix, event sponsor TAG Heuer launched the new limited-edition (just 169 pieces) TAG Heuer Monaco 1969-1979 39mm watch replica reference CAW211V.FC6466 as part of the brand’s 50th-anniversary celebration of the Monaco watch collection. Formula 1 racing continues to be a pinnacle of automotive engineering and performance — a racing series that TAG Heuerhas a long history with. This limited edition watch is not a radical revision of the winning Monaco watch platform, but presents a new aesthetic style that TAG Heuer claims is directly inspired by the colors, shapes, and style that many watches bore during the 1970s.

Metallic-olive Green Dial

The orientation of the hour markers, design of the hands and subdials, and overall presence of this limited edition TAG Heuer Monaco 1969-1979 men’s watch fake are the same as the “original style” but with a new color palette that is sure to be both polarizing and intentionally niche. TAG Heuer calls the dial color “green with Côtes de Genève finishing.” It is a sort of metallic-olive green with vertical polishing stripes similar to what you find on the surfaces of many Swiss-Made watch movements. The earth-tone colors are reminiscent of popular color palettes from 1970s style designs, which are making a comeback in various forms. I do love how TAG Heuer understands that this particular Monaco colorway is niche by design and produced it as an exclusive set of very few pieces in the scheme of TAG Heuer limited-edition numbers.

Calibre 11

True to its roots, the TAG Heuer Monaco 1969-1979 Limited Edition green watch replica is powered by the TAG Heuer Calibre 11, an automatic chronograph movement that runs at 4 Hz, offers 40 hours of power reserve, and has a maximum chronograph measure of 30 minutes. With its easily recognized square case and a history that is intertwined with golden eras for both Heuer and motorsports (not to mention the iconography of the ’70s), the Monaco 1969-1979 Limited Edition is full of funky charm, and we’re looking forward to the release of the next LE in this five-part series.
