2021 is proved to be an iconic year for TAG Heuer, the theme of the limited edition heritage. Two Carrera 39mm heritage watches were launched, namely the 844 Tribute Aquaracer replica. Now, the second Monaco LE replica to join the popular Green-dial edition. The TAG Heuer Monaco Titan Special Edition 39mm watch replica CAW218B is based on the traditional Calibre 11 Monaco case, but it is different: the classic Monaco case is made of titanium for the first time.
The new TAG Heuer Monaco Titan special edition replica looks like the classic Monaco at first glance. It took me a moment to notice the most significant new change here, then I got it. The case looked different: gone was the traditional mix of brushed surfaces and polish accents. In its place, we see a matte, sandblasted texture.
This is the high-end Monaco V4 replica. Except for the 2018 Bamford Carbon version, the classic Monaco has been made only of steel since 1998. Why is the name Titan? This is not a typo, but a word game, because it not only refers to powerful or important people in English, but also close to the French word Titane.
The Silver Sunburst Dial
The dial sticks to what it knows with a beautiful silver sunburst pattern, which perfectly complements the titanium case. Black printing is used for the minute track and “Monaco Heuer” branding. I like that TAG Heuer replica watch has dropped the “TAG” part of the name for the dial. It offers better visual balance and obviously pays homage to the logo used in 1969 when the Monaco was first launched. The two black sub-dials, bright red accents on the central hand, and the red index marker at 12 o’clock offer some much-needed contrast. The indexes and sub-dials are coated with Super-LumiNova to ensure optimum visibility in any conditions.
TAG Heuer replica has opted for the vintage-style horizontal applied hour markers. These are by far my favorite markers found on any of the Monaco series. Their whimsical oddness just works for me. In addition, I think they complement the square shape of the case better than the traditional style of hour marker, pointing inwards to the center of the dial. Either way, I think the dial rocks. Combined with the sandblasted titanium case, this is a neat combo — just the right balance of modern styling and vintage influence.
Although the 39mm square left-hand crown form of the TAG Heuer Monaco Titan replica is hardly new, the use of Grade 2 titanium for the case gives this familiar design a markedly different personality. While less hard than the Grade 5 alloy seen in many modern case designs, Grade 2 is essentially pure titanium, allowing wearers to experience the element in its unadulterated form. The distinctive squared-off shape of the Monaco, with its short wedge-like lugs, angled pushers, and slightly curving case sides, is given a fully sandblasted finish here to differentiate it from its stainless steel cousins. The titanium used is a lighter shade than many titanium cases in initial images, preserving the uniqueness and nuance of the classic Monaco form without hiding detail like a darker alloy might have done. Like other models in the contemporary Monaco series, the Monaco Titan offers a sapphire display caseback and a solid 100-meter water resistance rating.
Calibre 11 Movement
The replica TAG Heuer Monaco Titan Special Edition watch houses the modern-day Calibre 11 movement. Traditionalists will no doubt appreciate the Swiss marque’s decision to use the Calibre 11. However, other would-be buyers may question the rationale for not equipping the model with the sublime Calibre Heuer 02 movement. This latter movement is fully integrated with a column wheel and vertical coupling ensemble. The result is a superior pushpiece feel, a longer power reserve, less drag and a stutter-free start when actuating the chronograph.
Asphalt Black Strap
TAG Heuer completes the Monaco Titan replica with an asphalt black alligator leather strap featuring silver contrast stitching and a Heuer shield deployant clasp.
The new limited edition TAG Heuer Monaco Titan replica brings a more aggressive new dimension to the classic Calibre 11 Monaco series without sacrificing the refined essence of the series. In a market that is increasingly flooded with titanium designs, the limited edition TAG Heuer Monaco Titan replica may not Completely groundbreaking, but due to its unorthodox case material and attractive colors, it does provide one of the most interesting and unique packaging in the current Monaco collection.
TAG Heuer Monaco Titan replica will only produce 500 samples, which are now available through authorized resellers at a suggested retail price of $7,900.
